  1. “The reciprocal visit follows his Indian counterpart Shri Ram Nath Kovind’s three-day State visit to Zambia in April 2018.” That guy is no way in the Same league as president Lungu. Lungu and Modi can call both their armed forces to arms and war, Shri Ram Nath Kovind can call bollywood to dance. Please educate your readers and do not be fraudulent.

  3. “Reciprocal” just to justify a completely wasteful and useless visit which this country can not afford under present economic conditions.Someone should be recording ECL`s endless trips,local and international, so that one day he is called to account.This country simply can not afford this amount of travel by a leader.His only motive for travel is pleasure and allowances .How troublesome!Just one trip to India can run and operate Lusaka City Council for eight months,services included.

  6. The timing of the visit is unfortunate. Lungu cannot negotiate KCM Shareholders Dispute in India with strength. U cannot negotiate with Power with your Hosts. The Govt of India and Vedanta will negotiate with strength on Indian Soil. The Indian Govt and Vedanta will dictate to Lungu the terms and conditions of Vedanta exiting KCM and Zambia. The writing is on the Wall.

  8. Reciprocal visit? What is it they failed to discuss in zambia during Shri Ram Nath Kovind’s visit which needs discussion now? And dont bore us with “indian investors have expressed interest in the zambian market” We are tired of these stories.

  9. Mr.President good you arrived safely and that your jet took you to the red steps of that great land. We are happy you did not carry the first lady because not only is it a security risk but also its a saving on tax payers money for you to travel alone. Do not be distracted by Adolf and his rabid followers more so he admires your travels so
