  1. Bye bye president Kovind i think decongesting Mumbai should have been your priority.That city has massive slums,chaotic traffic and human traffic jams.

    • Mwenye si anga tandale po panda ndalama.
      He just came to collect the easy $289 Million. Even Indians have heard the news that there is a PF00Lish country giving easy money for inflated road projects whilst indebting its citizens, their children, grand children & great grand children.
      $289 Million could have been used to expand ZAMEFA creating 10,000 jobs & add value to copper thereby boosting GDP.

    • Why is this a news story ba LT? After all you didn’t report on the departure of the Botswana president

  2. Government should think of investing such large amounts in sectors that can maximize number of citizens that get lifelong jobs (not short-term casual jobs on projects). Jobs in creative industries that have capacity to continue growing on their own once the initial seed money is invested. Like facility that grows expertise in cutting precious stones, industrial bases using copper as raw materials with a view to cutting off most of what we import that is made out of copper and some agro-industries that can spread throughout the country giving millions of citizens rewarding jobs and prosperity that will spur them on to greater innovations.

    • @Estherie, yeah but do we have machinery,access to the very complex processes and managerial expertise to do it all?

    • Oh really?… during keneth kaunda’s time there were lot of manufacturing businesses… they soon start getting losses because of our laziness… so they had to move those companies outside… now we only depend on trade… then when country’s big projects are happening you are busy complaining… chinese that indians this… where do we have money to do these kind of projects???…. think before you speak…. please…

  3. 1, 1.1, 2 above look beyond your noses. Your negativity will kill you. Give Edgar a chance to do his work. The agreement is good and will leave an indelible mark in our country.

  4. @Estherie the reason they can’t invest in creative industries is bcoz they can’t steal thru cuts/kickbacks.

    With roads, they can steal through bribes from Chinese once the 20% down payment is made. In 3 years these roads will be washed away but the debt will be on our heads for the next 200 years. STYOPET MALAWIAN DRUNKARD

  5. you guys just critisizing India and yet you r begging them to help you do your decongestion of your own roads. you have no money and yet you want to act fresh…

    the money is coming from india to help you develop!
