Economy Zambia, Zim sign four agreements

Zambia and Zimbabwe have signed four agreements following the conclusion a joint permanent commission held this week in Lusaka.

The first agreement signed by Zimbabwe’s Minister of Industry and Commerce Mangaliso Ndlovu and his Zambian counterpart Christopher Yaruma pertains to the one stop border post at Victoria Falls in Livingstone to ease and expedite the movement of goods and services and facilitate trade in the SADC region and the free trade area.

This was signed by Zimbabwe’s Minister of Home Affairs Cain Matema and Zambia’s Tourism Minister of Tourism Charles Banda.

The third MOU is on cultural exchange between the two sister and neighbouring countries.

It was again signed by Mr Mathema and Mr. Banda.

The two countries also signed a MOU on gender equality, equity and women empowerment to enhance cooperation in the upliftment and empowerment of women through exchanges and sharing experienced and strategies in the economic and political spheres

The Minister of Women Affairs, SMEs and Community Development Sithembiso Nyoni signed for Zimbabwe with her Zambian counterpart Elizabeth Phiri.

Meanwhile, Visiting Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has hailed First Republican President Kenneth Kaunda for the vital role he played in grooming him in his political career.

President Mnangagwa said this was done at the time when he was in the initial youth group for the United National Independence Party (UNIP).

He recalled that in 1959 he was also a student at Hotson Technical College now known as David Kaunda Secondary School.

Mr. Mnangagwa said this today when he paid a courtesy call on Dr. Kaunda at his residence in Lusaka.

President Mnangagwa further said he feels at home whenever he comes to visit Zambia.

And Dr. Kaunda said he is proud of President Mnangagwa and thanked him for his visit.


  1. What we need is to form a similar union as the East African Community. Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi. We are three sister nations which used to be one.

    • @Vision2020, truly you are blind. Thinking like PF, building National House of prayers, while you have thousands of churches. What is SADC for? What is COMESA headquarters in Lusaka for? There is even COSAFA.

    • Better yet join the 3 countries back into one country much stronger and same culture, big countries are successful, ie Canada, Australia, USA, China, Russia

  2. OK the first MOU is solely about taxes, we are used to that now. The other three MOUs ,i don’t even know what emoji i can use to describe them.

  3. Both countries owe billions and the other country doesn’t even have a currency of their own, what MOU to export poverty…… this is really funny sh!t

  4. 2 wannabe corrupt dictators of bankrupt states with no shame…..both of them live merely 5 miles from epicentres of cholera in their countries, where unemployment runs at 80% yet both are some of the richest people in Africa…..

  5. Insignificant signing. All these nonsense do not add value to the lives of the poor. You sign all these ma-irrele then what will change. Nothing. Corruption by these two leaders still high. Cheating and rigging of elections at the highest levels in both countries. People want to get rid of these chaps through elections they cheat and steal elections to continue stealing and cheating. These bastards are just something else.
    So who is celebrating with them only those who steal with them.
