  2. Edgar should realize that the only way Zambia as a country can move forward is to invest in science & technology rather than depending on china for everything,infact china are only interested to rip our resources & put us in huge debt with their fake infrastructure projects.

    • He has more pressing issues to attend to like touring in Chinese Province for two days…he knew he was going to China to beg and auction off whatever little we have this week but opted to go to Harare, then EP for two days for…..serious lack of priorities or clear sign of having little to do whilst he is office.

    • @lolo…That’s very true. We need to invest heavily in science and technology, (STEM subjects) instead of just depending on other nations to do technical things for us. But, unfortunately, that’s beyond clueless Lungu’s capacity. Expect he looooves touring the world, while his fellow countrymen and women wallow in poverty. He’s the world’s best known tourist. We can’t even perform a simple DNA test, 53 years after independence. What a shame.

    • You are just becoming too personal. It is not good for your health. Probably it’s you who is jealousy of Larry Mweetwa and his accomplishments. Please don’t think people are living your poor life. Mweetwa made a difference in his life and probably will not suffer in his entire life.

      This is what we should be celebrating, not hating. I Guess your entire clan cannot boast of any of Mweetwa’s credentials. Jealousy down, Chita nawe.

  4. Seems like Lungu rules the country from foreign capitals and he comes to Zambia to either campaign or for holidays.

  5. Had he been flying to Japan, I would have been happy. Their expertise is second to none. Was he not in Zimbabwe two days ago? I like president Lungu, but this is too much flying.

  6. Has he ever stayed in state house for a week or 3 days? This man can move i don’t know if he has time for our mother in state house i just hope what his doing is benefiting the country because this is way too much, i dont’t what his avoid by being at state house. I pray that one day he will reflect on this with a smile or regret because i don’t see why our leader its always moving. Lord gives a signal…

    • @Wiser…Lungu doesn’t like staying in Zambia for too long. He knows Lusaka is filthy with uncollected garbage all over the place. And he doesn’t want to do anything about it. So, his solution is. ..go to clean countries and stay away from Zambia as frequently as possible—hang out in clean countries, enjoy some exquisite cuisines while sipping red wine—and afterwards go dancing to foreign music, while the rest of us back home in Zambia are buried in garbage up to our necks. In a lay man’s language, he’s using our hard earned taxpayer money to have a nice time, while salaries of some civil servants are delayed indefinitely. Just remember to vote this guy out in 2021, if the ConCourt allows him to stand.

  8. @Nostradamus ur question lacks merit & you’re such kind of people that makes this country not to move forward.China it is what it is today because of technology & science . By the way Chinese govt sends thousands if not millions of Chinese students to go & study science & technology in America.

  9. “Mr. Chanda adds that on the third and fourth of September, the President will attend the China -Africa forum which will also be attended by 45 other African Heads of State.”

    I don’t believe 45 African heads of state will attend this forum. That is almost all the African leaders. I think this is an excuse to try and legitimize ECL’s trip. These are meetings that can be delegated to a relevant minister at a fraction of the cost – which usually starts from the huge entourage to the airport.

  10. Waiting for Lungu’s usually empty tarmac speech/promises and the ever present throngs of idle GRZ hangers on .Visits to poverty stricken Misisi ,Mongu ,Chipata and Lundazi needs to replace your foreign joyrides.

  12. What is all this unintelligible gibberish above by the so-called ‘upnd cadre’? – and off topic as usual. Try and provide some constructive rebuttals, at least.

  15. They should stop this nonsense of ‘twinning’ cities or provinces.Muchinga Province will never be anywhere near Jiangxi Province. We know they will take this opportunity to beg China to help them settle the Eurobond

  16. A joker for a president! We lost the plot completely as a nation; directionless with these so called leaders in control. Painful times ahead and all self – induced.

  17. He is going to collect the loot from the sale of Mukula trees. Dora Siliya and Amos Chanda were recently in China to make sure the money is packed well in suitcases. He cannot trust Kaiser or any other person.
