President Edgar Lungu says the Southern African Development Community (SADC) remains committed to promoting peace in the Democratic Republic of Congo -DRC- and the Great Lakes Region.

Speaking as SADC chairperson of the organ for politics, defence and security, President Lungu said SADC has always been ready to work with the government of the DRC to restore peace in the country and in the region.

He noted that the internal conflict that has rocked the DRC for many decades has negatively affected neighbouring countries politically and economically.

President Lungu observed that close cooperation with the United Nations and with the International Conference on the Great Lakes Region is indispensable to the attainment of lasting peace in the DRC and the region.

He was speaking in Kampala, Uganda today, when he addressed the 9th High Level Meeting of the Regional Oversight Committee for the Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework for the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Region.

And Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni , says while African countries do not believe in meddling in the affairs of other countries, time has come for African countries to help bring peace to the DRC.

General Museveni says the political instability in the DRC has persisted for so long that it has affected not only civilians in that country but also neighbouring countries and the region.

Speaking at the same function, Special Envoy of the United Nations Secretary General, Said Djinnit, encouraged the AU, International Conference on the Great Lakes Region, SADC and the UN to ensure regional cooperation in tackling longstanding challenges in
arts of the eastern DRC.

    • He looks more like a hostage. Maybe drunkards have no potential to assert themselves. The kama little man Kaizar appears to control the situation around Lungu, that is what I am saying. All other Heads of state in the past in Zambia had an individualism about themselves and maybe that is why Zambia had some sort of direction, even a wrong direction. The case of Lungu is a chipante pante and it’s clear why. People like Kaizar Zulu just filled the lack of vision vacuum! Hence the chaos! wake up Zambians, smell the coffee.

    • It’s beggar’s belief what Lungu has done and he keeps getting away with it! Michael Cilufya Sata did not want chaps like Kaizar. Brian Hapunda and Emmanuel anywhere near him and his party. People like Dora and RB were all wrong for Sata’s cause for the poor Zambians, the premise on which he formed PF. Now suddenly some of these are so near. if not even control the PF government that Sata fought to form. Why Lungu why? Why have Zambians also allowed this to happen?

    • @Analyser, looks are deceiving. He is in control, whether you like it or not. It takes a sober mind, purpose and objectivity to run the office of the president and chair the southern African community. Even when haters have to hate, respect is due.

  1. Decade long conflicts in DRC has negatively affected neighbouring countries. very very very True Mr.President but don’t you think you need to speak on the current issues affecting your nation?Sort your very own problesm here first Cause if this continues, take for instance an innocent soul at UNZA has gone just like that (MHSRIP) and all u had to say was no comment?? Don’t you think this provokes anarchy in the sense that you are not protecting your own citizens against internal police brutality??and in the near future, Zambia might be in conflict and tending to affect other nations also. Don’t you think it starts like that??

  3. @4 Sniper. INDEED WE ARE JOKERS!! What can Kaizer Zulu advice politically on the complicated DRC issue, an empty tin who hardly understands anything on international relations apart from Zambian “komoboni” violence??. What is Museveni talking about when himself and Kagame are hugely responsible for some of the militia that have repeatedly attacked and looted the DRC??What peace can they bring when they are the real winners from the suffering of the Congo and its people!!

  4. Lungu originates from East Africa, that’s why he likes travelling to Uganda and Rwanda time and again. He is far from being a Zambian. No wonder he has no love for the Zambian people.
    He enjoys seeing us in miserly in our own country.

    • HH originates from South Africa that is why he likes to have his MPs go there and he addresses their gatherings and asks them to topple an elected government in Zambia! If that is not MENTAL, tell me what it is! The little boy doesn’t know how to run an opposition party and has no clue what he is doing that is why his tribe mates Ha Ha-ngry.
