President Edgar Lungu is today expected in Maputo Mozambique following that country’s signing of a long term peace pledge between its Government and the opposition Mozambican National Resistance.

Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi and RENAMO Leader Ossufo Momade on Thursday signed the peace accord to mark the official end of the conflict between Renamo armed men and the defence and security forces.

President Lungu will be in Mozambique in his capacity as the Chairperson of the SADC Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Operation.

He will leave at 15 hours.

This is according to a statement issued to the media by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Isaac Chipampe.


  1. When are you going to start calling Dr E.C .Chalungula babe? Dr CK I hear that what about him? It’s like that doctorate was a forcing matter

    • Whenever PF and UPND sign “peace” papers, no president come over to witness.
      Frelimo and Renamo stopped fighting in 1996, even Chiluba attended. They don’t fight more than Lusambo lead thugs.
      Ba Edgar has misunderstood this thing.

  2. In which capacity????? that position we all know that it in Zimbabwe the incumbat is Zimbabwean President…….. Read the news Zambians to avoid lies like this one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Check the article the signing was done last thursday so Ba Chagwa what is going to do……………..ati follow up…………….Iyee on whose cost!!!!!!!

  3. Now you see why Zambia’s poverty is increasing? Edgar Lungu is always busy on foreign tours while the Zambian economy is in intensive care unit .

  4. “Mozambique’s President Filipe Nyusi and the leader of the main opposition party Renamo on Thursday signed a permanent ceasefire agreement, designed to put an end to almost half a century of hostilities that killed over 1 million people at their peak”

    This was signed four days ago. Everyone is back to their stations. What is ECL’s role now, in this internal matter? Was he caught unawares? Does he need to travel there?

  5. This circus is now getting embarrassing, the man is reducing the nation to jokers, these leaders and entourages he meets know our position economically,if our president and his advisers dont mind being laughing stokes i do and i believe i speak on behalf of a lot of people .Respect the electorate and dont embarrass us,we all know we are broke,the whole world knows,you cant be acting like “heared nothing saw nothing”characters.

  6. No accountability at all. There is no clear explanation why ECL has undertaken this sojourn. He could even have just picked up the phone and congratulated the parties involved. Other Presidents have sent messages. Being chair of fimo fimo is neither here nor there. He is going there when the ‘horse is already out of the barn’.

  7. Ayenda ku yaka ku Maputo Dr Jona Whiskey!
    Never travels with the Wife, Kaya?
