President Edgar Lungu is tomorrow expected to arrive in Kasane, Botswana on a two days working visit.
Zambia’s high commissioner to Botswana Patrick Tembo told ZANIS in Kasane today that Mr. Lungu is expected to arrive in that country around 15.00 hours.
Brigadier General Tembo said the President will be received by his Botswana counterpart Ian Khama.
President Lungu is later in the evening expected to attend a dinner hosted in his honour by his host.
On Tuesday the two heads of state will be briefied on progress so far made on the Kazungula Bridge project before touring the construction site on both the Zambian and Botswana sides where they will also receive onsite briefings.
High commissioner Tembo said the two leaders will also discuss issues surrounding delays on the bridge construction project which they urgently want resolved so that the project is completed by 2019.
Brigadier general Tembo said the Kazungula bridge is an import project for both countries as it will greatly facilitate trade not only for Zambia and Botwana but the entire southern African region.
The construction of road and rail bridges across the Zambezi River into Zambia will solve the problems that have been associated with the age long breakdown-prone ferry bridge
