  1. erm, oops I almost pressed a ‘care buttton’ . That is right – I dont actually care.

    China sees zambia as a rich country, who don know what to do with their money.

    They will use, abuse and leave you.

    They are a terrible country to be associated with, needless to say that they are a powerful country.

    They are there because it benefits them

    Thanks

    • @mushota. PARTLY RIGHT. HOWEVER WITH THE RIGHT AGREEMENTS AND IMPLEMENTATIONS BOTH COUNTRIES CAN ACTUALLY GAIN FROM BILATERAL RELATIONSHIPS. WHAT WE SHOULD NOT ALLOW IS TO BE EXTRACTED AND EXPLOITED. INSTEAD OF IMPORTING FLIP FLOPS FROM CHINA, WE NEED THE CHINESE TO COME WITH THIER INVESTMENT AND MAKE THEM IN ZAMBIA. WE SHOULD NOT LET OUR MARKET’S BE DUMPING GROUNDS WHILE OUR NATURAL RESOURCES ARE BEING EXTRACTED. INSTEAD WE SHOULD INSIST THAT THEY SHOULD CREATE GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT FOR OUR PEOPLE WHILE THEY MAKE MONEY TOO. EXAMPLE DONT JUST LET THEM TAKE THE COPPER TO CHINA,MAKE COPPER WIRE AND SELL IT IN AFRICA. WE SHOULD HAVE THEM BRING THIER MACHINES TO ZAMBIA MAKE THE COPPER WIRE IN ZAMBIA AND THE TAKE IT TO MARKET. MANJE PROBLEM OUR BOMAS NO NZELU!!!

    • He is coming to inspect China’s investments in Zambia and explore more avenue to exploit the poor dark continent. They might be late in the colonization business, but they are doing a bum good job to catch up with the famous British and the French in terms of exploiting Africa. Good job China.

    • Chairman Mao said,”China will one day rule the world”. This will soon come true because everyone at the moment is running to China for money. The minister should be encouraged to take over KCM since Indians have failed to run the mine. Forget about the exploitation these guys are good at.

    • It takes brains and lots of it to match the Chinese economic aggression leading to what @ Shot Put says. Even the western developed countries are in a fix on what counter measures to implement in trying to curb Chinese gains seemingly forcing the incoming American administration of Donald Trump to start warming up to Russia!

    • LUSAKA TIMES WHY HAVE YOU FAILED TO ANNOUNCE THE BEST BLOGGER. WHAT ARE YOU SCARED OF. WE DEMAND YOU RELEASE THE RESULTS. WHY DID YOU WASTE PEOPLE TIME VOTING IF YOU WANTED A PARTICULAR PERSON TO WIN. LET ME WARN YOU THAT THE LONGER YOU TAKE TO ANNOUNCE THE MORE CURSES YOU ARE BRINGING ON YOUR FAMILIES AND SHORTENING THEIR LIVES. DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU. You mongrels

    • If we had a serious government that knows what it wants, we would have made hay while the sun shines with the Chinese. We would, for example, signed a deal with them to assist us establish a new shining Capital City or electrify the whole Zambia Railways system from Livingstone to Nkana Kitwe to promote efficiency. But this government chooses to engage them on small, small things useless to the Zambian people.

  2. The Chinese Kalaba was sent by his president to represent. It is like God is vindicating us when we said president Lungu should have sent his Kalaba, and not go himself with his entire statehouse staff.

  3. This simply shows us that the Republican President has no business going around visiting foreign lands. A minister of foreign affairs is enough. Thank you for coming Mr Wang Yi. I’m sure Kaponya (HH) is busy sh!tting his cattle pants with cow dung at the rate PF is garnering support from foreign investors like China.
    Good job Mr Kalaba. Shame these hopeless critics.

  4. @Mr Kudos:
    What a curse to have mother fuc.king Ar.sewhores; Demons, Mongrels; Scavengers, pr.iks, etc like you still living in our country!! Zambia is going nowhere as long as you remain alive! Blessed is the smelly pus.sey that gave birth to yopu!! ID.IOT!

    • Chikalyata you sound like someone who was born with syphilis. What a retard you are old man. You need a lot of help. Pillock

  5. The landlord will be in town to check on his future estates as the Chines know that these reckless lazy empty tins will default!!

  6. Africa is dumping ground even plastic rice is been accepted in our Country due to corruption these chocholis are a danger to our nation. Can the people in power pleaset the check merchandise they are bringing

  7. Cont the government should check what these People are bringing in the Country especially food stuff othetwise our people will die of fake products.

    • That video porporting to show plastic rice being made is in fact the recycling of plastic. To recycle plastic, the result is small rice like pallets.

  8. How is this a headline you Lusaka times pf rats. What is a mere foreign minister to us. The pf will be busy licking this Chinese man’s little testicle including lungu. All because the lazy chaps need kaloba. Kikiki. And Lusaka times can you please announce who won best blogger. U dogs

  9. What the Zambian government needs to ask China to do is bring in manufacturing industry which will help create employment for lots of young men roaming the streets with wheelbarrows trying to earn a living! If our leaders can put on their thinking caps and use their brains effectively, Zambia can benefit more from ??. We need China more than it needs us!

    • You are naive ..its this selfsame lazy thinking that will not take us nowhere…why should they bring manufacturing industry to your lazy self when they too need to employ their citizens..you think they get money from the sky.

    • “We need China more than it needs us” …really laughable …then you are a charity case…you remind me of my cousin in a Zambian Village who always has business ideas on the phone and wants pounds to be wired swiftly but when does not state a repayment plan for that small loan he wants.

    • @ Nabs

      Yesterday Chinese have signed “deal” to displace tens of thousand peasants in Sri Lanka in order to create space for new “investment” which will provide job for 30,000 Chinese workers. That is the future you are looking for?

  10. LUSAKA TIMES WHY HAVE YOU FAILED TO ANNOUNCE THE BEST BLOGGER. WHAT ARE YOU SCARED OF. WE DEMAND YOU RELEASE THE RESULTS. WHY DID YOU WASTE PEOPLE TIME VOTING IF YOU WANTED A PARTICULAR PERSON TO WIN. LET ME WARN YOU THAT THE LONGER YOU TAKE TO ANNOUNCE THE MORE CURSES YOU ARE BRINGING ON YOUR FAMILIES AND SHORTENING THEIR LIVES. DON’T SAY I DIDN’T WARN YOU. Aluta

  11. We need manufacturing, manufacturing needs ELECTRICITY on an hourly basis no load shedding,, what markets do we have for manufavtured goods, China needs land. Be careful

  12. Representative of new colonial power, after making tens of thousands of Sri Lanka peasants landless, continue with his colonialist journey in a quest of world dominance.

  13. Only PF i.d.i.o.t.s who dont understand the chines will celebrate at this news. Our latest colonial masters are coming to see what ealse they can rip from us. Foolish african leaders are clueless about our rich continet.
