    • Why write “..the plane carrying the president landed”, as if he is dead.
      Better “… The president landed at”.
      I don’t like English, but worse I don’t like you people alarming us.

They will not change their fiscal indiscipline and they will just lead us into a worse situation … F0000ls!!

  1. Forum on China–Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) ..i’m yet to see the fruits of all these talkshop forums between Africa and USA ,China ,Japan ,Turkey ,India and France.

    It has become fashionable for each power in the world to have a talkshop summit where African leaders go to extend begging bowls ,borrow and talk aimlessly with no tangible change of African lives.

    • The Chinks are embarking on $1.3 trillion mega trade plan to revive the silk routes from Spain all the way to Zhengzhou..leaving a lot of countries in debt-traps, for countries that will be supplying raw material in Africa they are already under it thumb….fooools like dull Edgar here think they are getting a good deal as they are short-sighted and corrupt. Our future leaders will be reporting to Beijing every morning like those Provincial ministers around Zambia.

  2. How is this summit going to benefit African countries?
    They really should give their nations a report regarding the same summits.
    because it costs money to travel abroad frequently to be honest.

  6. There are numerous commercial airlines he could have used as opposed to hiring a whole plane to fly him halfway around the world to attend a completely useless conference. This man is such a waste of time and space.

  7. yet another talk-show where African leaders are there to pay attention to what the Chinese leader will articulate issues which will make our leaders’ presence relevant. It’s a pity our African leaders never took the Botswana president seriously. Mr Khama showed these leaders that it was not always necessary to travel for meetings worldwide and exchange pleasantries. He had his own philosophy which fellow African leaders could have emulated but they did not. In Zimbabwe, he had the guts to tell Mugabe that he was not the only leader available to lead Zimbabwe. For the benefit of doubt, let the talk-show begin.
