First Republican President Kenneth Kaunda says he is hopeful that the shared relations that Zambia has with Angola will continue to be strengthened.

Dr Kaunda added that it was gratifying to note that Zambia has continued to share strong ties with Angola.

He said the relationship that the two countries share is real and should be appreciated by all well-meaning Zambians.

Dr Kaunda was speaking when Angolan President Joao Lourenco paid a courtesy call on him at his residence at State lodge this evening.

And Angolan President Joao Lourenco says Angola will continue to hold with high regard the relationship shared between the two peoples.

Mr Lourenco has described the visit to Zambia as important and hoped that the visit will open more avenues for the two countries.

The Angolan President is in Zambia on a two day state visit and is scheduled to visit the Kafue Steel Manufacturing plant tomorrow before flying back to Angola.

  1. For all his shortcomings, KK stood for some principles. He is respected in the region. God bless you super K.

  2. I like KK; his shushushu were always on my back; but he’ll always remain the greatest president Zambia has ever known to date;

  3. if you ask me that’s a lost opportunity.

    it was better if we signed oil deals with Angola.
    Zambians …no foresight!
