Democratic Republican of Congo President Joseph Kabila is has arrived in Zambia for bilateral talks with President Edgar Lungu.
Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda has told Journalists in Lusaka today that the two leaders will discuss trade, border control and refugee situation among others.
The DRC leader was met at the airport by Foreign Affairs Minister Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Malanji.
This week, three soldiers and two civilians were killed and 11 other people injured in an accident involving DR Congo President Joseph Kabila’s motorcade..
The accident happened on a road in the southwest of the country, 220 kilometres south of Kinshasa, as Kabila was returning to the capital on Tuesday.
“Last night, a vehicle in the presidential motorcade was hit on the Matadi highway at Kimpese by a truck carrying cement,” communications official Yvon Ramazani told AFP on Wednesday.
“Three soldiers in the Republican Guard were killed along with two civilians who were nearby,” he said. Seven soldiers and four civilians were also injured, Ramazani said, adding that the accident had been caused by heavy rain.
Kabila “stayed on the site until the emergency services arrived, and personally supervised the ambulance evacuation of dead and injured,” he said.
The Republic Guard is an elite force tasked with the protection of the president. Kabila was returning from a stay in the sea port of Matadi.
Roads in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a sprawling, poverty-stricken country, are notorious for accidents. Poor road surfaces, overladen vehicles and excessive speed are often the causes of mishaps.
Kabila on Wednesday was to meet in Kinshasa with the presidents of the neighbouring Republic of Congo and Angola, Denis Sassou Nguesso and Joao Lourenco, for a tripartite meeting.
Joseph Kabila is an evil wicked dictator, should not have been allowed to step foot on Zambian soil.
Kabila is well respected and reverred around the world.
This proves a lot of people thinking highly of presdeint Lungu.
A great trait to have.
I’m having a great day with my fiancé in my garden we are making noise giggling for no reason at all. I’m doing my hair as well.
This is life. Not Zambian life.
@Mushota, you & Nick, maybe not Nick, You just lost a baby in assisted abortion 2 weeks ago. And you are already out playing in back yard. Imagine if your baby was there with you…. Doing your own hair is more fun than doing baby’s hair???
I want my condolences card I sent you back.
Nostradamus I’m still off work.
I go back 26 Feb. For now I want to forget this dark episode for the third time in my life.
I know I will start a family because these are temporary setbacks. I’m going to the gym everyday and my body is almost back to the best me.
temporary failure will not prevent you from achieving lasting happiness.
I’m also reading the ‘fire and fury’ book. Which will make me more smarter
From one dictator to another.
Lungu’s dictator/corrupt friends are gone now he’s looking elsewhere for friends. He will just go with them. Whatever happens Lungu you are next. Kabila wants to stay on and no one wants him so do you!
This is one nasty piece of work who can only be impeached via coup d’état …he like the lazy thing in State House has sold his country to the Israeli Billionaire Businessmen; I am sure he has come to Lusaka for that.
This boy shot his own blood Father to get on to that seat …you honestly think this little fat **** will stand down via election and these are the people our dozy President look up to and blindly admire the wealth.
Shame on you Lazy Lungu!!
Joseph Kabila, it’s only a question of time. Your moment of reckoning is next.
DICTATORS ARE FRIENDS WITH DICTATORS
MUSHOTA, WELL RESPECTED BY WHO? KABILA IS ONE PATHETIC AND FILTHY AFRICAN I WONDER WHY HE HAS BEEN ALLOWED ON THE ZAMBIAN SOIL- OR SORRY HE GAVE US PEDICLE ROAD.
Peter the Pedicle rd was give by the Dictator Mobutu. Kabila is the boss of bakaboke. He should just go back to Congo. The young man is a disgrace! I would even prefer Kofi Olomide to be President!
The DRC has no president at present so what is Lungu doing legitimising Kabila?
It is sad indeed my friend, but our presidents in Africa have to meet with these backwards leaders to try and talk sense into them. Just like they did to Mugabe and Zuma in South Africa.
I can see all you guys are babies . Neither Kabila nor Mobutu gave you pedicle road. You inherited this from the colonial master. I even wonder why Africans cling to these countries as if they are God-given. Africans had no say in creating Malawi Algeria, Ghana, Botswana South Africa etc. All the more reason why we should not be accusing people of belonging to this or that country. We just belong to Africa full stop
@mushota, my condolences, if I knew in time, I would have come with a truck load of firewood. But if you want I can send umuti u wa ku samba, normally after an abortion, you need to bath umuti so you don’t lose babies in future,
How many times are you going to advise lungu not to associate with criminals,,kaizer Zulu, mu-seven,, and now illegal president kabila
Mushots what do you smoke?
Kabila is now globally regarded as a dictator who refused to step down when his second term in office ended in December 2016. Remember he has been in power for 17 years, i.e. since 2001. His refusal to step down has led to bloody conflicts in his country, as the police brutally suppress protesters who dare to speak out against him. The only thing Lungu should have asked this guy is, when are you stepping down? The Angolan guy is not any better either, having been handpicked by Dos Santos, the guy who stayed in power for 38 years in Angola. ECL loves hanging out with people who have dictatorial tendencies, doesn’t he? First it was Mugabe and Museveni. Mugabe having been ousted out, it looks like Lungu is now looking for a replacement.
Mushota indeed, what do you smoke. We are in the heart of winter here and you guys are giggling in the garden. Do you have heating in the garden? It would make more sense if you said you had gone for a walk. I live in UK but I do know that People in Zambia enjoy life too. Pls get a life!
President Edgar Lungu must distance himself from dictators such as Kabili.those are wamuyayaya political leaders such as HH!!so Kainde must be allowed to meet Kabila because they have same qualities-clinging on leadership like lice!!
Kabila is not welcome in Zambia!!we dont need him here in Lsk.
Lungu is the same as kabila….kabila has refused to leave office and we are witnessing the same manuveors by the corrupt theif lungu…
@2 YOU CAN SAY THAT BECAUSE MAYBE PEDICLE ROAD HAS NO IMPORTANCE ON YOUR LIFE. TELL THAT TO LUAPULA PEOPLE WHO USED TO BE FINED IN TIMES OF MOBUTU FOR BEING DISABLED, BOLDHEADED, HAVING A CLEAN-SHAVEN HEAD AND SO ON. IT IS NOT VERY LONG AGO. BESIDES, CONGOLESE THEMSELVES MUST BE BRAVE AND FIGHT FOR THEIR FREEDOMS AND NOT RUSH TO LIVE IN PARIS (AS IF EVEN THEIR FORMER COLONISER IS FRANCE INSTEAD OF BELGIUM). KABILA IS A DICTATOR- YES. BUT, HE SHOULD BE REMOVED BY HIS OWN PEOPLE. ZAMBIANS FIGHT FOR THEIR OWN RIGHTS. WE HAVE NEVER SORT ANY HELP FROM ANY COUNTRY. ZAMBIA WOULD HAVE BEEN A FIRST WORLD IF IT HADN’T BEEN THE BROTHERLY NATURE OF ZAMBIANS WHO CHOSE TO HELP NEIGHBOURS AND BEYOND TO FREE THEMSELVES. NOW, IT’S TIME TO DEVELOP ZAMBIA. DR CONGO IS NOT IN THE HANDS OF COLONISERS.
@Peter you get it all wrong, in unit we can get rid of all these African pests who pretend to be leaders.
When the people of Congo are afflicted we get to host and care for them- very nice thing to do. But if we all Africans start to demand for upright leadership on the continent and stop welcoming ruthless leaders like Kabila things would lookup.
@Peter don’t you see that Trump won’t be going to London anytime soon because the citizens in London have made it very clear he’s not welcome and that they intend to hold massive protests if he ever steps foot in the Uk.
And we honor a tormentor of our fellow Africans with a Red carpet!
Dumb Lazy Lungu has no foreign policy whatsoever he is a disgrace..
@2.4 mafiyakozolo… Who needs who? Tiny Britain or Trump? Trump doesn’t need London as it needs him. Why should those low life Londoners protest just coz trump thumped useless hillary. Its in tiny Britain’s interest and prestige to have trump visiting. Get thru your bufontini head, London needs trump more than trump needs it.
Weak minds have ganged up against trump coz they a weaker soul they can control. S..thole CNN doesnt sleep over trump, everyday its trump this, that and us zambians pay multi choice just listen to s..thole from CNN.
As far as I concerned, Congo has never had a president before.
It did once, he was called Patrice Lumumba. Social studies my friend.
As far as I’m concerned, Congo has never had a president before.
What the heck is going on?
Lazy Lungu’s circle of thieves around the region keeps getting smaller time for a round table meeting of shameless souls.
Bilat what? All these *****s must follow the Mugabe and Zuma route
The likes of Kabila just need a wooden box that all they understand as they will still cause havoc in exile with his drunk soldiers!!
he has also done a ka Rick Ross ……kikikikikikiki
A wave of change is sweeping across Africa. A wave of change Joseph Kabila is less likely to survive.
WHY ECL sent this moron to meet PRESIDENT KABILA AT the airport , WHY NOT HIM, IS HE AROUND OR WHAT IS GOING ON ,TO SEND AN AMATEUR MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS AIYA KALABA WAS EVEN BETTER.
You are clueless …who do you think welcomes Lazy Lungu when he visits places like RSA …you think the Head Of State would go there. This is what happens when you are used to seeing PF mediocrity.
The region and the world at large are looking to the new South African President to sweep away the region and SADC of these corrupt theives like lungu and kabila…….mugabe and zuma , their godfathers are gone…..it is because of these theives that we have Congo refugees
When did Lungu become a dictator, as far as I can remember he has been in power for 3 years and became President through election, can someone educate me
Lungu is a wannbe dictator who is in power through doubuoos means….he used all illigalities and violence during elections and still refused to prove in court that he had not stolen the election…
Only the west through the CW warned lungu with sanctions about his assault on democratic rights of those with divergent views that that lungu has behavied somewhat……
The two “new” Presidents of Zimbabwe and South Africa are all very good friends of President Lungu and PF so what does that tell you about 2021?
Watch this space ……munangagwa is just Mugabe with a different jacket and I don’t think the new S.A. president would want to be associated with corrupt theives like lungu…
The hapless SADC was lead and filled with wannbe corrupt thieves who did not want to leave power ….they all subscribed to their silent code of….
“…dont call me a dictator, you might want to be one and stay on in power your self after your term in office……”
We call on ciril ramamphosa to show leader ship in the SADC region by demanding free and fair democracy in all member states….political violence, corruption and creeping dictatorship should be banished…
KABILA MUST GO !
For you amateurs who are saying that ECL should not meet dictator Kabila, sometimes reflect on your amateur behavior before commenting. DRC shares the longest border with Zambia out of the 8 countries bordering Zambia. Congolese refugees are trooping in droves to Zambia, Our busiest border post Kasumbalesa has been a hot spot recently – and in case you do not know, see how many trucks are crossing into and from DRC everyday. Whether Kabila is illegitimate or not, we have to meet him.
If the west said that about Hitler …
” weather we like it or not we have to meet.. ”
God forbid where we would be today..
Have you seen the agenda for their so called meeting?Restoring democracy in Congo is not one of them ,they are just going to discuss the refugee crisis,not the root causes of the crisis.No wonder can only come to Zambia,just check he cant go and engage progressive leaders like Ramaphosa or Tsvangirai.I think this rogue should not be welcome in Zambia,in fact where it not for the nonsense we are going through one would expect protests from civil society,but everyone is scared of exercising their democratic rights.
Spaka like tonga:your reasoning is very useless!!nobody in Zambia can compare ECL to Mugabe or Kabila except you die hard tribalists in UPND because you know too well that with him(ECL) on top of PF,HH cant defeat him-hence calling ECL names in a panic mood!!
The new president of South Africa and Zimbabwe will ever work well with ECL and may not meet your unkown Kainde between now and 2021!!a lot of Zambians in 6.5 provinces do not see the difference between Joseph Kabila or Museveni and HH because these are known dictators who do not want others to take over leadership in their political parties!! They say “charity begins at home”.if Kainde is not a dictator,he must be conducting conventions while in opposition where he will die trying!!
2021 WILL SURELY BE FOR ECL TO LOSE!
“….6.5 provinces do not see the difference between Joseph Kabila or Museveni and HH …”
Who is kabila meeting ?? His fellow corrupt wannbe dictator theif or HH ??
Soon UPND cadres will blame Ramaphosa once he meets ECL like Mnangwangwa of Zimbabwe did recently when he visited Zambia!!after Mugabe left the presidency,HH’s blind followers thought the new Zim president will be Kainde’s friend,HOW?ONLY THEIR SICK MINDS KNOW IT!!note,your Kainde is just the same as Mulyokela,Cosmo Mumba,etc who cannot represent Zambia officially in anyway!!ZAMBIA ONLY HAS ONE PRESIDENT IN ECL WHOM ALL FOREIGN PRESIDENTS CAN ASSOCIATE WITH ANYTIME!!only ECL can seat on a same table with powerful World leaders such as Trump,Putin,Teresa May,etc anytime and NOT KAINDE!!hence, stop bringing Ramaphosa’s name here because soon he will meet ECL and shame you!!
Only you du.ll pf rats panicked when Mugabe left, thinking your corrupt theif lungu will be isolated….the wider world new that munangagwa is a continuation of Mugabes old guard …..even the IMF have imposed strict conditions before any money is released to zim….
@Spaka like tonga:DID YOU HEAR A DAY AGO WHEN YOUR SG KATUKA WAS BLAMING US THE YOUTHS TO BE THE ONES WHO MAKE HH LOSE ELECTIONS BECAUSE OF OUR LOVE FOR PF AFTER SEEING PF MAMMOTH RALLIES IN THE COPPERBELT,WESTERN AND LUAPULA?am sure it is now very clear in the upnd camp that there is no wind of change yet in Zambia like in 1990 and 2011-so Kainde’s 6th defeat is surely expected in 2021 if the BILL TO LIMIT THE NUMBER ONE CAN STAND WONT GO THROUGH IN PARLIAMENT!!all political indicators in Zambia still favour PF and maybe Kambwili’s NDC!!AS FOR UPND,IT WILL REMAIN A REGIONAL PARTY IN 2021!!!already a lot of upnd councillors are resigning to join PF-A CLEAR SIGN THAT UPND IS STILL MILES AWAY FROM STATE HOUSE!!
Hence,come 2021 ni PF nafuti nafuti!!
We dont care who ever unseats the corrupt rats in pf , be it NDC , UPND or an allience of all parties so long as they remove the corrupt theives PF before even Kafue river is sold to the chinese….
Njimbu Lungu is a wannabe dictator look at his friends, two of them are gone. He doesn’t even attract the best of the presidents just dictators like Kabila and museveni. He wants to stand in 2021 when he is ineligible according to the constitution, the section he wants to abuse is for the Vice President
@spake like tonga;JOSEPH KABILA CANT MEET HH BECAUSE HE DOES NOT REPRESENT ZAMBIA IN ANYWAY!!!ECL is the only Zambian president,so all foreign presidents can only meet him.ECL IS NOT A DICTATOR AND 99.9% SANE PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME UNLESS THOSE LIKE YOU WHO DO NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF A WORD “DICTATOR”!!your Kainde can meet Obasanjo and many useless ex world leaders who are fellow satanists!!
I dont think hh would be so low to agree to meet a corrupt wannbe dictator theif like kabila…..that is for lungu…..birds of the same farther flock together…
With Mugabe and Zuma gone Lungu has no choice but to seek comradeship from another Ruthless Dictator.Lungu must be feeling lonely and a new friendship with Dictator Kabila is welcome after Birds of the same feathers flock together.As they say History doesn’t repeat itself but it often rhymes. Lungu’s fate will be sealed soon. The writing is on the Wall!
If you were clever you would know that ECL is in fact closer to Mnangagwa and Ramaphosa than their older proteges. Mnangagwa is no Kasukuwere nor is Ramaphosa a Maimane.
I dought lungu beiing cloer to ramaphosa……who has promised to clean S.A. of the evils of corruption …..munagagwa yes I can belive lungu being close because munangagwa is just Mugabe wearing a different jacket…
@spake like tonga;JOSEPH KABILA CANT MEET HH BECAUSE HE DOES NOT REPRESENT ZAMBIA IN ANYWAY!!!ECL is the only Zambian president,so all foreign presidents can only meet him.ECL IS NOT A DICTATOR AND 99.9% SANE PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME UNLESS THOSE LIKE YOU WHO DO NOT KNOW THE MEANING OF A WORD “DICTATOR”!!your Kainde can meet Obasanjo and many useless ex world leaders who are fellow satanists..
I dont think hh would be so low to agree to meet a corrupt wannbe dictator theif like kabila…..only zuma, mugabe and MU7 entertain kabila…..and lungu…..…
Spaka like lilo – This is where you expose your ignorance. You have the longest border with the most troubled country in your neighborhood and you are saying your wannabe president would not meet Kabila if he were in his shoes. Ask yourself why KK used to meet Mobutu and John Vorster.
Meet and discus what ?? When elections will be held next ??
And don’t compare KKs time in the middle of a cold war and admist liberation struggles with now …….those 2 wannabe dictators are massaging each other’s egos of how to hang on to power…
Among the SADC bunch the only honerable one is Ian khama of Bots…even during Mugabe’s time him and PLM were the only leaders to stand up to Mugabes terreny and threaten to seal their boarders while millions of Zimbabweans were fleeing Mugabe’s rule with some being burned in the town ships of S.A…..
Why on earth is Mushala -Kabila coming to Zambia?
We all know this Congole’ Brute has refused to vacate office @ the expense of thousands of innocent, suffering, & dying masses.
This Congole’ has come to mentor Khoswe in the art of refusing to vacate office.
African Dictators only understand one way of vacating office, “The Barrel”
Yes according to your Dundumwezi Constitution,ECL does not qualify to stand in 2021!!kekekekekekeke.BUT FOR ME,THE MATTER IS IN THE CONCOURT,SO OUR LEARNED JUDGES WILL SOON GUIDE US!!!
As for ECL not attracting good leaders,all Zambian have seen presidents from democratic countries such as South Africa,Ghana,Botswana,Namibia,Kenya,Rwanda,etc vising ECL since 2016 while ECL himself has visited France,Germany,Italy,China,Brazil,and met all prominent world leaders at UN,AU,etc.so your thinking is actually nonsensical!!UNLESS YOU ARE SAYING ALL WORLD LEADERS ARE BAD OR DICTATORS!!
Moreover,ECL has nothing to prove to foreign presidents because all he needs is to impress Zambians who voted for him-period!!ECL doesn’t even need to please you Kainde’s tribal followers BUT US WHO…
You are talking cr.ap , lungu gate crashed most western capitals…..we all remember how he was told off in a NY hotel corridor by the black USA Africa representative woman when he went to the UN general assembly…….lungu left NY sulking
ECL doesnt need to impress you Kainde’s tribal followers but US WHO LOVE PF AND SHALL VOTE FOR PF IN 2021 AND BEYOND!!
Come rain,come thunder,you China,spaka like tonga shall vote for Kainde if he will be allowed by a NEW COMING LAW IN 2021!!!SAME FOR MAJORITY OF US IN 6.5 PROVINCES,WHETHER YOU DIE HARD TRIBALISTS LIKE IT OR NOT,WE SHALL CONTINUE VOTING FOR MICHAEL SATA’S POLITICAL PARTY “PF” BECAUSE IT IS OUR BABY!!can a normal parent stop loving his or her Child-NEVER!!SO NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY OR DO,PF IS OUR BABY!!our leaders shall come and go but PF will remain in our DNA!!
That is the tradegy of Africa……bonfide corrupt thieves are let and allowed to rule on tribal lines, no matter how they destroy the country…..
Sad indictment of the richest continent but bankrupt by its tribal foo.ls…
Birds of a feather flock together ,Kabila is forcing himself extra time in office unconstitutionally and Edgar Lungu was threatening high court judges regarding his ineligible 2021 bid.
@Spaka like tonga;
Your sick mind needs to be checked at Chainama hospital or any mental hospital.IF ECL GATE CRASHED IN NEW YORK?WHY DID YOUR KAINDE ALSO DO THE SAME?KEKEKEKEKEKE!!! I really wonder whether you Kainde supporters are normal or not!!ECL will represent Zambia until 2021,meaning he will attend a number of UN general assembly meetings.SO DURING ALL UP COMING UN MEETINGS, ECL WILL BE GATE CRASHING CHABE?oh my gosh-Kainde followers need deliverance mwe!!
All leaders are invited to the UN general assembly……i mean lungu was gate crushing the western capitals you mention…..and do you remember the US Africa representative blasting lungu in a hotel corridor for his state sponsored violence ???
@Njimbu leave tribe out of this! Why should someone’s tribe be an issue! Your tribes man is just the same as someone who isn’t your tribes mate maybe even worse so don’t make it an issue! As for @Spaka I respect this chap despite you being a civilian and in the past we have exchanged heavy blows but today I’m saying you are principled and stick to your ground! However sometimes you too must understand that even within UPND there are imperfect elements and you must learn to criticise people in UPND just as much as you critique those in the ruling party! Otherwise badaala keep it up Zambia is bigger than all of us!
I am not UPND….i criticise lungu and pf because i see many things wrong with the direction the country is taking I fear the worst….free and fair democracy and a unflinching fight against corruption with high moral standards for the presidents office together with anti tribalism should be our guiding principles.
Even if UPND or NDC came to power, I will critic them should they diviate from those principles.
And let’s put country before tribe….
Thank you 2020vision, i too respect you.
God bless our Zambia.
I should have gone to the airport with a placard to protest
The PF cader rats were going to attack you…
Kabila’s Pres guard are not elite soldiers unlike Rwandan Defence Force’s Alpha mobile group that trained them. Its the same Alpha mobile group that invaded Congo back in 1997 and overthrew Mobotu to bring in that bufoon Laurent Kabila who later turned on the hand that gave him power.
Some advice to President Lungu- please avoid any meeting with this extremely illegitmate and illegal cretin of a leader called Joseph Kabila- the chap is a proper lowlife that has turned a blind eye to many atrocities committed both by his own forces and rebel groups operating in the East of DRC.
I am sure UPND knows what a dictator looks like now!
The president is in charge of peace in the Great Lakes region that is why he is meeting this boy. I am sure he will tell him that his time is up! Elections and go away but like HH he doesn’t want to go!
What peace is lungu incharge of ?? People are being slaughtered in Congo for protesting kabilias refusal to leave office…….kabila and lungu are mates and the same…
@ Sharon congratulations this comment of yours makes sense, first time you found your senses here. However, with Jonathan being long fingered, he just talked about how the two of them can collaborate in stealing from their respective countries. He has no foreign policy.
Show me your friends and I will tell you what kind of person you are
But upndeez surprise me, no they shock me with their selective judgement. What makes you think that h.h is any different from Kabila or any other so called African dictators? The only difference is that h.h has bnever been President of any country and will never be. The bad traits of greed, dictatorship, wamuyaya, only me, corruption, hatred, tribalism, nepotism, and many others which are visible in h.h were also seen in the African leaders you call dictators before they became Presidents. And yet you somehow suggest that h.h will be better than Kabila, Mugabe etc? Look here upndeez, don’t butter our eyes just tell us what you want which one of your chiefs stated kast week at Constitutional violance commission hearing. What you want as upndeez is h.h because of his tribe, Seja.ni said it…
Blah blah blah blah blah
Sejan.i said it all and it remains true to this day.
The bitterness and hatred of upndeez which we see today is the loss of an election which they came so near to give them the tribal supremacy which they set as their ultimate objective. Forget the window dressing of petitions, being heard, opposition party, a bemba running mate etc which they use to butter our eyes and those of their gullible supporters who are yet to discover and see the upndeez for what they truly are and stand for. Don’t be deceived by the so called tribal balanced National Management Committee, there is an inner circle which drives the agenda of the so called opposition party.
Blah blah blah blah blah
Whereas the upndeez at their highest level have called other tribes variously as bemba monkeys, ngoni rats etc, you have never heard them use similar derogatory descriptions on themselves. That should tell you something even if you choose to be an idoi.t like fatso, salt and bite.
So please upndeez spare us the rub.bish of “African dictators” when you are clearly and obviously trying to prepare your own brand, very unsuccessfully fortunately.
Blah blah blah blah blah
