      Absolutely NOTHING. What was Edgar doing there, with wrong shoe color? Look at your president, completely out of touch of reality.
      To come from Eastern Province doesn’t mean East Africa.

    • JOKES AND POLITICS ASIDE, OPEN COLLABORATION WITH ISRAEL IS EXPOSING THE COUNTRY TO TERRORISM ATTACKS. REMEMBER, THE WATCHDOG HAS BEEN REPORTING ABOUT SOME ISRAEL NATIONAL WORKING WITH SOME UGANDAN AT STATE HOUSE TO HELP PF RIG THE ELECTIONS. THIS IS WHERE THIS COLLABARATION HAS LEAD TO NOW: RISKING THE SECURITY OF THE COUNTRY ALL BECAUSE LUNGU WANTS TO RETAIN POWER. THIS MAN LUNGU AND HIS TEAM ARE VERY DULL. THEY GO TO SAUDI ARABIA AND THEN ISRAEL. I AM SCARED OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF THESE RECKLESS AND DUMB DIPLOMATIC BLUNDERS. REMEMBER THE TERRORIST ATTACKS IN UGANDA? WATCH THE SPACE!

    • THE CONSEQUENCES OF THIS DUMB BLUNDER ARE TOO GHASTLY TO CONTEMPLATE. I AM SCARED FOR MOTHER ZAMBIA OF THE SUBSEQUENT PRICE OF THIS RECKLESS AND THOUGHTLESS BLUNDER BY EDGAR LUNGU AND HIS GOVERNMENT FULL OF DULL PEOPLE. AT ONE TIME I THOUGHT KALALBA HAD SOME SENSE BUT HOW MISTAKEN I WAS! IT IS SHOCKING HOW THE ENTIRE GOVERNMENT CAN BE SO BLIND TO NAKED REALITIES! IT’S EVEN MORE SHOCKING THAT THE SO CALLED INTELLECTUALS IN PF SUCH AS NGOSA SIMBYAKULA, MBITA CHITALA, PROF. LUO, KFB, KOPULANDE, EVANS CHIBILITI, ETC., CANNOT SEE THE MADNESS OF THIS STUP!D AND FULISHI MISTAKE AND ADVISE ACCORDINGLY! IN ZAMBIA EDUCATION HAS NOT BEEN HELPFUL TO DEVELOP AND ENLIGHTEN PEOPLE INTELLECTUALLY AND MAKE THEM WISE. IT IS A FAILED PROJECT.

    • Israel is an exemplary country. 6 million people talked about everyday the world over and over. Biggest exporter of fruit to Europe even though water scarced, technology start-ups comparable to Silicon valley. Must be something right they are doing. Surely a people to be allied with?

      The visionless PF will be hit hard by hunger & poverty of their creation once they are balloted out. PF has destroyed confidence in the people & world at large, so on 11~8 its a day to Dununa PF & Dununa Lungu.
      After the Dununa of PF & Lungu out on 11~8, lol PF will cry fouls to the Post of Fred Mmembe & Zambia Watchdog. Once in opposition, Post & Z’WD will also Dununa PF.
      Vote Wisely by Dununa PF to Dununa Lungu.

    • Israel is involved in extrajudicial extradition of illegal immigrants from Isreal to third party countries that these illegals did not intend to go to. Recently Israel sent Eritreans from Israel to Uganda and Rwanda. Zambia seems to want to participate in this scheme which is against UNHCR rules and regulations. Use your imagination as to who benefits politically and financially in these schemes.

  4. ISRAEL INVADED Uganda. I dont see why that should be celebrated. IDI AMIN who was a Moslem collaborator with the terrorists should have been ashamed. Lungu does not know what he is taking Zambia into blindly. Why did Ugandas neighbor Magufuli not go there but send a small boy?

    Edgar cannot go to Saudi Arabia to get money and then have a security meeting wirh Israel unless he is a double agent ( a spy). The end is usually bad. I remember someone in London developed cancer in 2 days. No one knows how Yasser Arafat died I French hospital (the same one where Mwanawasa died). There are still accusations about the Israelis using Polonium 210 to cause instant cancer and die in less than a week while turning orange in colour. Edgar should keep away from these thugs. And HH should avoid any…

    • The Israelis are not nice people at all. They are racists and are currently implementing their own modern apartheid against black jews, Falashas from Ethiopia, and the Palestinians. The African countries cozing up to Israel are looking for financial rewards for supporting illegal waterboarding, deportations, and Internet monitoring.

  7. Look at those African ******* leaders, Tanzanian president is too smart to waste time at such meets.Folly really trusting an Israeli with security matters; they really think the Israelis would share information with them…these are the guys who treat black people like animals. You have this Lazy Bum Edgar going there when he should have just saved jet fuel. One wonders if he even has a foreign policy because one month he is in Saudi Arabia begging for fuel and funds …the next he is partnering with the Israelis for security and economic development.

    • This is not desperation its simply misplaced priorities due to lack of coherent foreign policies – alligning with Mosad is a risk to ourselves. If you want assistances in regards to fight and prevent terrorism their countries we can approach not the the biggest terrorist Mosad.

    • Israel is the only country in the world to give black African refugees free air travel into its borders and give them immediate citizenship. (Or haven’t you learned the history of the Ethiopian Jews?) Save your accusations of racism for the Arabs and Europeans!

  13. Get out of your comfort zone you bloggers and just travel out of your country’s borders. You’ll understand the importance of the summit in Uganda. We’re living in a world of terror and it’s spreading like cancer. Meanwhile you’re pessimistic about everything the president does even if it’s for your own good. I live in a country where there’s terror but the government has invested in security. Scanners and detectors everywhere you go. All public places (Hotels, churches, malls and markets etc) are secure incase of attacks. If Europe is no longer safe from terrorist, who are you?As long as you have immigrants, you’re not safe. Remember what happened to Kenya where the university was attacked kumacha. The reasons were that the Muslims felt marginalised because is dominated by…

    • BUT LUNGU IS INVITING TERRORISM TO ZAMBIA. IT WAS STUP1D IMPRUDENCE FOR HIM TO ATTEND THAT MEETING OF NO VALUE TO ZAMBIA. IT ONLY GOES TO SHOW HIS TOATL LACK OF UNDERSTANDING OF ISSUES. EVEN THE PEOPLE WHO ADVISE HIM ON SECURITY ARE OF LOW CALIBRE. THE COUNTRY HAS BEEN PUT IN SECURITY RISK.

  15. There is no trade between Zambia and Uganda so what did Lungu go there for. Lungu wants Mossad ,Timor Consultants and Ugandan security agents to help win the upcoming elections. Mu7 can give the final tips to Lungu on how elections are rigged. Zambians should watch out and make sure extra and premarked Presidential ballots. Without rigging Lungu knows he is losing these elections.

Yes Z is not directly facing a terrorist threat (except fo hh), but o who know will tell u that a country that wishes to develop its agric sector, especially irrigation methods, Isreal & Egypt shld b very close partners! They r desert countries, but they ve food in abandance, not just focusing on maize (that fits the entire description of food in Z). From cerial, fruits, livestock. Fyonse!

Just look at how everyone else is dressed then stare at your Chakolwa.You can clearly see who attended this meeting for the benefit of their country and who was just there to increase the number.When the news reporters counted,1,2,3,4,5,6.Oh! and 7 Edgar Lungu.Even dictators themselves they attend to Serious dictators with clear benefits.Lungu has nothing to give these Dictactors,as a result,he can follow them even in their toilets,he will still come out with Zero.Meanwhile,Aug 11,its Duduna!

  21. Isreal itself doesnt want Zambia to have another Dictator like KK.They havent forgotten how KK punished and chased away all the Isrealis out of Zambia in one month.Isrealis dont forget bad history easily.And also given,Lungu is the same tribe as KK.therefore Nyetanyahu will take his revenge easily-cheat Lungu that yes i will protect you,and when the day comes,abandon Lungu completely.Dont kubeba is also a world wide strategy bane.These Dictators are playing dontchi kubeba on chakolwa cos they can also clearly see how drunk the man is always.To be a dictator,you ve to be sober 24/7,that is one of the requirements.

  22. God is really manifesting in the physical what is the spiritual realms. Countries like USA & UK fall over themselves to identify with Israel & here we are small little unknown Zambia at the High Table. Indeed we are a Christian Nation. The Lord is indeed our shepherd who prepares the table in the presence of the enemy (Psalms 23). The enemy in some of the above is confused. To those that God has revealed Himself, they know why this is happening and why Zambia us among the SEVEN! God Bless Zambia

  24. This event makes my spirit excited. How prophetic this is, O LORD! The statement made by Israeli Prime Minister is profound: “Israel (Jacob) is coming back to Africa & Africa is coming back to Israel”. Do you know which country is leading this re-marriage? Do you know which country is the only Christian nation among all these? Do you know which country’s flag is next to Israel’s flag in the photo? (read Psalms 87, Romans 9, Romans 11:1-21). Open your eyes Zambians God has started doing great things through you & your President & the devil has become even more desperate. God Bless Zambia

  25. @The Chosen One,let me remind you case you ve forgoten,1.Jesus Christ was Jew.2.The devil that crucified Jesus,was also Jew.So to make enlighten your small ka brain,there are two Jews in this world.The one that belong to Jesus and the ones that slain Jesus.Judas Escariot was jew,Pontious pilate was jew,the Devil that asked Jesus to denounce & insult GOD,was also jew.The crucifiers were all jews.The soldiers that whipped the son of GOD as his bled blood through out his body,were all jews.Be careful of what you wish for you PF cadres.And besides,in the entire meeting,as long as it was,have you heard a single mention of GOD by the Isreali Prime Minister?answer is no,So where is your over enthusiasm coming from?

  26. @Redbull, thank you for reading my contribution. How I wish you could also read the verses in the Scripture I’ve referred to. Faith, my brother, is not the same as intellect. You need to read the Scripture & pray to God to assist you understand my post & what happened in Uganda. It is beyond politics & canal knowledge. If you genuinely pray God will reveal to you why President Lungu is JUBILEE President. God Bless Zambia!

  27. More like 8 African countries had a meeting. let us pretend like Israel is not African. They might try what they may, but their true history is intertwined with Africa. Only now are they thinking they are of Europe. God though shall show them where their true friends are. Remember baby Jesus was saved in Africa.

    When Israel was a child, then I loved him, and called my son out of Egypt. Hosea 11:1

Byaku bonela mu bukulunu tate, bya kataza. And I wonder, what has Zambia got in common withthese East African countries, nothing!

  30. Terrible company to keep, ECL. I can’t say the Saudis are any better, but Netanyahu is a terrible person to be aligned with, and the records of all those leaders on supporting fair elections and free speech is dismal. It makes me fear for the political space in Zambia, if ECL is going to try and use those tricks he learned from them. I hope that ECL is not looking for weapons from Israel, they’ve already militarily supported some of those same leaders in fomenting violence.
