President Edgar Lungu says he has not officially received a report on the political situation in neighbouring Malawi.

President Lungu who is SADC Chairperson of the Organ for Politics, Peace and Security says he will however contact the Zambian Embassy in Malawi this evening for an update.

He was speaking upon arrival in Lusaka from Zimbabwe where he had gone to attend the African Union Africa Wildlife Economy Summit.

During the last few days there have been protests in Malawi emanating from the recent elections that were held in that country.

Meanwhile, President Lungu has described his visit to Zimbabwe as a success.

Earlier, President Edgar Lungu said that Zambia is expected to learn new ideas on the management of wildlife and human conflict from other countries, from the African Union Summit on wildlife that began today.

Speaking shortly before his departure for Zimbabwe, President Lungu noted that Zambia is further expected to share experiences on best practices in tourism.

President Lungu joined other African Heads of States and experts in Tourism in Victoria Falls Town, Zimbabwe where the two day African Union-African Wildlife Summit is being hosted in that country’s Victoria town.

The summit is an initiative of Former AU Chairperson, Paul Kigame, to forge a new deal with issues of tourism, rural communities and wildlife.

    • That’s one of the problems wth African countries. Imagine u’re an exporter 2 Malawi waiting for payment from your customer or a lending banker providing export credit to an exporter 2 Malawi. U start to panic that perhaps the country will descend into chaos so that payments are delayed or they don’t come. It’s called political risk in the jargon, i.e. likelihood of non-commercial events affecting your interests adversely even if customer is able to pay.

    • Concerned: Malawi High Commission reports to its own govt. ECL is on firm ground here. Love him or loathe him, give him credit on this one.Nevers Mumba’s also talking nonsense and exhibiting the same ignorance that led to LPM firing him as vice-president of Zambia.

      Those of you who speak highly of President Lungu,go to a Malawian website called Nyasa Times and read for yourself how even the slow Malawians have little regard for him,the man should have reserved the little regard he had for himself as a lawyer by refusing to stand as president

  5. Lungu should leave the Malawi Concourt to Hear the Petitioners and arrive at a verdict. Lungu in 2016 ordered Zambia Concourt not to Hear the Petitioners based on a Technicality and therefore is conflicted. Toothless SADC shouldn’t interfere in Malawi Legal Processes. SADC Tinpot Dictators should not rush to save another Dictator in Malawi. They should leave Arthur Mutharika to face justice in Malawi.

  7. There is a report that AVIC built 38 police houses in Chibombo district at a cost of K1.7 million kwacha per house. A basic police house with three bedrooms in Chibombo district at K1.7 million. Bane, come on.

  8. Let Malawi Concourt deal with the Presidential Petitions professionally and objectively. U can’t ask an Election Rigger to interfere with the Petition Hearings in Malawi. In 2016 the Airport President used State Power to stop the Hearing of Presidential Petitioners in Zambia. Lungu doesn’t respect the Right to be heard in Court so Malawians should keep this Election Rigger away from Malawi Electoral Dispute Processes. He is biased already and will side with another Election Rigger. Birds of the same feathers flock together. SADC should keep away from Conflict Resolution Processes in Malawi. Period.

  9. Political leaders need to do the right thing. Edgar Lungu can still turn this around by acting on corrupt Ministers, we don’t care if he is corrupt but he needs to send a clear message that corrupt activities will not be tolerated. Chitotela is a stain that needs to go for one and he also needs to rotate Ministers.
    Our neighbouring country has had enough and that can happen in Zambia as well if you continue taking the peace-loving Zambians for docile fools.

    you think the jet runs on water? Zambia is broke and you’re busy making unnecessary trips to be seen as working when you can visit various parts of the country, lsk in fact and listen to the people. wildlife management, is that a republican president’s jurisdiction?

  12. He does not have to receive a report on the political situation in Malawi. I’m sure he does listen to and watch the news and the fact that there’s no loadshedding at state house
