Political and Economic Section Chief of the United States of America Embassy in Zambia, Ms Doreen Bailey today paid a courtesy call on the Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila at the PF Secretariat.

Ms Bailey and Mr Mwila discussed a number of issues ranging from the Patriotic Front’s economic-social policies to the current dialogue process.

Ms Bailey expressed happiness with the Patriotic Front’s commitment to upholding the tenets of democracy as evidenced by the Party’s on – going intra – party elections.

She said the United States is committed to solidifying the warm relations between Zambia and the United States in ensuring a peaceful and prosperous Zambia.

She raised concern over the spake of fake news and called for even closer collaboration between the Embassy and the Party Secretariat to clear any misinformation through constant information sharing and consultations.

Meanwhile Mr Mwila assured the Embassy of the PF’s commitment to peace, unity and economic development. He reiterated the Party’s commitment to the dialogue process.

He further informed Ms Bailey that the PF Government was resolved in its quest to make mines pay a fair share of taxes.

“The embassy is committed to strengthening ties with your office and ensure close collaboration and information sharing to ensure a more peaceful and prosperous Zambia through increased Foreign Direct Investment and adherence to good democratic practices.”

“We have been working very well with the PF through the National Democratic Institute. We have trained and built capacity of many PF officials through our programs with NDI and we will highten these programs,” Ms Bailey said.

Mr Mwila thanked Ms Bailey for the visit and assured her that the Patriotic Front is committed to fostering unity, peace and development in the country.

He assured the Embassy that the Patriotic Front was committed to a political dialogue whose agenda is based on what was agreed upon by members of the Zambia Centre for Interparty Dialogue ( ZCID ) at the meeting of Secretaries General in Siavonga last year.

“In June last year, political parties under the umbrella of ZCID met in Siavonga to discuss the Agenda for national dialogue. We largely agreed on four thematic areas that included Constitutional Reforms, Electoral Reforms, the Public Order Act and judicial reforms. These are the things that we expect to discuss at any dialogue meeting and we as a Party are committed to discussing these issues in an open and honest manner”

“We have continued with our intra – party elections in a bid to deepen democracy and strengthen our party. We are going to the general conference next year” Mr Mwila said.

Mr Mwila advised the Embassy to take advantage of the Party’s open door policy and not hesitate to consult, advise and clear any concerns with his office.

He said the Patriotic Front government is determined to make Zambia and Zambians benefit from their natural resources hence the introduction of the new mining tax regime.

  1. The USA should demand for a free and fair election in Zambia. There should be no violence and dialogue should be encouraged. Our commander in chief has failed to end political violence ( or he condones it)

    • The USA probably has more intel on the ground than a bunch of tribal hacks. I wouldn’t be surprised if the USA government actually rigs against HH because they know how tribal he is.

    • Am sure this was Gold Comedy and valuable material listening to SG Mwila speaking English without mixing with local language…Mumbi is missing to compliment him!!

  2. But in the trib.als party, they don’t even talk about free and fair elections: they have no elections of any form or at any level.

  3. 1. Ms Bailey expressed happiness with the Patriotic Front’s commitment to upholding the tenets of democracy as evidenced by the Party’s on – going intra – party elections.

    2. She said the United States is committed to solidifying the warm relations between Zambia and the United States in ensuring a peaceful and prosperous Zambia.

    3. She raised concern over the spake of fake news and called for even closer collaboration between the Embassy and the Party Secretariat to clear any misinformation through constant information sharing and consultations.

    Even the US has observed that there is no democracy in one trib.al party. What is your comment, T.H.?

  4. Did Davies Mwila manage to speak broken English with stammering ofcourse with the American? I hear he has forged Grade 12 Certificate written by a kid.

  5. “Dialogue process ,tenets of democracy and clearing any misinformation” blah blah blah.I find Ms Bailey’s lecture to Zambians very hypocritical given the lack of values,abuses ,style and accusations against Donald Trump.Go preach to America 1st and clean the big log in America’s eye before lecturing Zambians.

  6. Why is Ms Bailey talking of dialogue process in Zambia when the US government is partially shut down for a month due to lack of dialogue? Trump and Pelosi hold stubborn ,obstinate and unyielding positions they’re even hostile .
