PRESIDENT Lungu is on Monday expected in Kasane, Botswana, and Kazungula for a two-day working visit.

Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba said President Lungu and his Botswana counterpart Seretse Ian Khama are expected to inspect progress on the construction of Kazungula Bridge.

According to a statement issued yesterday by Ministry of Foreign Affairs public relations officer Dorcas Chileshe, the two heads of State are also expected to hold bilateral talks.

Mr Kalaba said when construction of Kazungula Bridge is completed, transportation of goods and people between the two countries will significantly improve.

“Zambia and Botswana have enjoyed strong bilateral ties for decades and the Kazungula Bridge will deepen the relationship between the two countries,” he said.

  1. Mr I an Khama should redeem himself by telling illegitimate Lungu to restore his legitimacy by hearing and disposing off the Petition. Khama ,Zuma and Magufuli are three Presidents who have recognised President Adama Barrow of Gambia based on Constitutionalism. These three Presidents should insist on Lungu respecting the Zambian Constitution. Lungu stole Elections in 2016 and illegally and unconstitutionally inaugurated himself in power. Khama was one of the two Presidents who graced Lungu’s inauguration. If Khama truly believes in Constitutionalism he must tell Lungu to regularise his position by Hearing and disposing off the Petition. In the Gambian case the Will of the People has been respected and upheld. Zambians want to know who won the 2016 Elections and who is their Legitimate…

  2. Kamwendo munjila part 2. Does this vision less leader ever sit down and plan what he is going to do in Zambia at all? To him he is only working when he is flying around? Does his advisors ever sit him down and explain the importance of attending to pressing issues at home? Everyday flying here and there, even places where he is going are tired of seeing the same face time and time again admiring other people’s cities when his capital city is littered with dirt and stinking like a dumpster. TWANA WEMUNTU IWE TUKALANDILE KWISA KANSHI?

  3. If ECOWAS was SADC Lungu would have ceased to be President of Zambia by now becoz Lungu illegally and unconstitutionally inaugurated himself in power. The Zambian Constitution is very clear. After a Petition was filed with Concourt Lungu ceased to be President Elect and Encumbent President. He should have resigned and allowed the Speaker of Parliament to act as President while the Petition was being heard and disposed off. Lungu refused to resign, blocked the Petition Hearing and proceeded to inaugrate himself in power illegally and unconstitutionally. Lungu was not declared the Winner of the 2016 Election by Concourt and therefore he remains an illegitimate President until the Petition is heard and disposed off.

  4. Why did UPND lawyers waist 13 days running around, filing nonsense not pertaining to the elections? We as Zambia shall not be held to ransom by selfish individuals. The lawyers should have filed day one and we could have watched a great soap, but no, lawyers were out to suck resources from HH and GBM kikiki.

  5. @Nzelu. Ignorance is bliss. The Petition was properly filed b4 Concourt within 7 days. The Hearing was supposed to start 14 working days after the Petition was filed on 19th August 2016. Yes 14 working days becoz all govt depts do not work on Saturdays,Sundays and Public Holidays. 14 working days only expired on 8th September 2016 well after Concourt had dismissed the Petition on 5th Sept 2016. There is no law which allows Concourt to dismiss the Petition without Hearing it and determining it. The 14 days were for the starting of the Hearing of the Petition and there is no time limit set for Court to determine and declare the Winner. Justice delivery is far more important than time expiry. It is improper for a Judge to sentence an accused to death for allegedly committing murder without…

  6. President Khama In his capacity as Chairman of SADC attended Lungu’s illegal inauguration in 2016. Based on Constitutionalism Khama has recognised President Adama Barrow of Gambia. If Khama truly believes in Constitutionalism he should de-recognise Lungu becoz he was inaugurated Illegally and unconstitutionally. Following Ecowas heroic success in Gambia, SADC’s image has been shattered. President Khama should be brave and tell illegitimate Lungu that without a Proper Petition Hearing SADC will de-recognise Lungu as President of Zambia. SADC needs to redeem itself and follow the Ecowas example in Gambia and enforce Constitutionalism in Zambia. On that basis the Petition has to be heard without further delays. Go.. Go SADC.

  7. Much as I am not a fun of Lungu, I feel at this stage talking about something you cannot change or do something about is a waste of your time and resources. Everyone has had a say and I think its about time to bury this issue because whether we like it or not he is the one in power. And going on about how he stole the votes and so on is now stale news and serves only to stress yourselves for nothing. Let’s move forward, and give him the benefit of the doubt and see what’s going to happen as you obviously can’t change the situation. I give him credit though for such kind of developments. Well done Mr Lungu.
