  2. The King of Morocco was in Zambia to establish business relationships. This can be seen by the many MOUs signed showing that there has been a lot of back ground work going on between the 2 governments before this visit by HRH King Mohammed VI. I just hope our own technocrats make sure the agreements realized from the MOUs are mutually beneficial to Zambia and Morocco.
    Africa need to work together closely to avoid the imperialist exploitation that goes on in every sector of our economies.

  4. Is this how you greet a King? Useless protocol officers! A Zambian Chief would not be greeted in such a manner! Dora Siliya in a mini dress that that is too small and a synthetic wig-disgusting! Are the Morrocans going to sort out the drainage to stop flooding. This is a government of beggars reliant on foreign aid. Better to beg Germans for engineers to train and rebuild sanitation and drainage.

  5. Way too many agreements signed for me to believe there is substance here. It would make sense to focus on three key ones and ensuring that those materialise than running all over the place and ending up achieving nothing because of spreading resources too thin!!

  7. This is nothing more than to counter Zambia’s recent support of Polisario Front. All those MOUs are to pacify the support and bring Zambia back on Morocco’s side over the disputer Western Sahara. It’s up to Zambia to take advantage of the situation as Morocco has not interest in investing in Zambia.

Too many agreements..from China to now to gulf countries…it would have made more sense if zambia learned how the tourism industry has been well managed in Morocco especially that most billionaires from the western world are always visiting that desert country unlike in zambia where even Zimbabwe is till doing ok in tourism despite its economic woes..shame bane…

  9. n his 1968 book, “Political Order in Changing Societies,” Samuel Huntington coined the term “The King’s Dilemma.” It highlighted a key problem monarchs face: how to liberalize without losing control. To Huntington, the choices are stark: The monarch could either “attempt to maintain his authority by continuing to modernize but intensify the repression necessary to keep control,” or transform his monarchy into a constitutional monarchy where “the king reigns but does not rule.”

    Six years after the Arab uprisings, Moroccan King Mohammed VI faces his own version of the King’s Dilemma. The current deadlock in the formation of the Moroccan government will be a key test. The Islamist Party of Justice and Development (PJD) won the plurality of votes in the October 2016 parliamentary…

  10. allowing Abdelillah Benkirane to maintain his post as head of government. However, after more than four months of failed coalition talks and obstruction from pro-palace parties, Benkirane’s influence has been weakened.

    The political deadlock indicates that the promises of shared power and a constitutional monarchy in the aftermath of the 2011 Arab uprisings have not be kept. The divide today could not be starker, as the state continues to function without an active parliamentary government, through the traditional mode of governing in Morocco: the monarchy and the royal cabinet. How did Morocco get here, and what’s next?

    Even with Morocco’s history of economic and political liberalization, the regime could not escape the fervor of the 2011 Arab uprisings. On…

  11. On February 20, 2011, thousands of Moroccans took to the streets throughout dozens of towns in the Cherifian kingdom, demanding political and socio-economic change.

    More than 40 associations and parties formed a coalition known as the February 20th Movement, which initially gathered groups across the political spectrum, including secular left-wing parties and more conservative Islamist associations. This alliance led to a swift reaction from the king, as the people’s calls for reform became louder.

    After weeks of massive protests, King Mohammed VI gave a televised address on March 9, where he promised sweeping constitutional reforms, including a more powerful parliament and a reduction of the monarchy’s power. He appointed a committee to draft a new constitution, culminating with a…

  12. referendum on July 1, in which 98.5 percent of voters approved Morocco’s 2011 constitution.

    Chief among these constitutional changes related to achieving a better separation of powers, promoting the independent judiciary, and increasing the power of the prime minister (who, thanks to these changes, would come from the party winning the plurality of votes in parliamentary elections).

    King’s Dilemma: Morocco Edition

    What is next? As Morocco’s history of a multiparty system demonstrates, the palace controls and co-opts the system from within. Keeping palace allies in major political parties, in both the governing and oppositional coalition, remains key to the monarchy’s power over Moroccan politics. In the current situation, Akhannouch—the King’s confidant and friend—is front…

    This situation reflects the continuation, if not intensification, of the palace’s influence over the political system. Thus, the promises in 2011 that power would be shared amid a constitutional monarchy have not been kept.

    If the palace decides to call for another election—and if attempts to sideline the PJD continue—it may tarnish Morocco’s image, as well as the monarchy’s narrative that promotes the country as a democratizing success story of the Arab uprisings. Furthermore, while sidelining the PJD and parliament may work in the short term, this strategy may not work in the long term if the PJD can maintain its momentum at the ballots boxes in local and national elections. On the…
