President Edgar Lungu

President Edgar Lungu is tomorrow expected in New York to attend the 74th United Nations General Assembly in the United States of America.

President Lungu will join host President Donald Trump and other foreign Heads of State and Government in discussing global issues affecting humanity.

Foreign Affairs Minister Joe Malanji has confirmed the development during a media briefing in New York today.

Mr. Malanji revealed that President Lungu will hold a bilateral meeting with the King of Jordon Abdullah Bin Al-Hussein on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.

He also said the Head of State is scheduled to undertake a State Visit to Jordan later this year in a bid to enhance bilateral relations with the Jordanian monarchy.

And Mr. Malanji said President Lungu will also hold discussions with President TRUMP’s representatives from State Department while in New York.

Meanwhile, Zambia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations Lazarous Kapambwe said this year’s United Nations General Assembly will focus on among other issues climate change, access to universal health care and progress in implementation of the Sustainable development goals.

  3. Lungu is facing a catch 22…….

    There is real hunger in Zambia, worthy of declearing an emergency ……but if lungu does that , he will be singled out by donner countries for excessive travelling……

    But lungu needs to travel excessively to earn allawances to cover his massive stealing……….

    It won’t work. We are counting…

  5. Ok but lungu mubi. Just look at that picture and then look at how handsome hh is. Any way it’s good to see that he is off on the jet again. Can the USA authorities look into him and his drug dealing connections. Better still let him use a Boeing 787 max to travel there and we hope pilot engaged auto pilot. Even my white wife is shocked that a poor country can continue paying for useless president to fly this much. Its not like Zambia is even a key player on the global scene. Meanwhile wifey and I are just having some wine as we discuss our future investments.i love her

  6. The UN Summit this time is about the biggest hoax, Climate Change. Our own has fallen for the hoax as his major excuse for his incompetence and mismanagement! We just hope he has researched well for his speech. We don’t want embarrassments especially that he has not led by example by building on a forest reserve!

  7. “President Lungu will join host President Donald Trump and other foreign Heads of State and Government in discussing global issues affecting humanity.”

    And then this?

    “And Mr. Malanji said President Lungu will also hold discussions with President TRUMP’s representatives from State Department while in New York”.

    No direct talks with Trump after
    joining him? So why mention Trump? Why not just say joining other heads of state? The feeling of self importance, same as HH. Me I am comparing these two leaders of ours, no difference except for the trible baggage that HH carries.

  8. But anyway travel well your Excellency, please take your fellow heads of state on your morning jogs on New York streets.
    And while you are away we can rest from seeing or hearing you everyday perhaps? No boring fights with your friend HH.

  9. Why doesn’t HH join his friend in New York? We are tired of HH this, HH that, HH lifting or donating bag of mealie meal, HH has directed the President blah blah, HH has declared a national disaster as if the whole nation is affected by drought and famine, HH has convinced Britain to donate mealie meal … and none of the statements does anything to build his national image in preparation for 2021 but instead subtracting votes massively such that he will not be able to launch a presidential petition in 2021.

  10. I commented on this impending trip yesterday. It’s the UN summit where as usual the African voice is largely ignored.

    My concern is that the minister of foreign affairs has announced that ECL’s next trip is to Jordan. For goodness sake, how much longer are we going to be subjected to this travelling circus – at tax payers expense?

  13. So how can someone who stays in the skies know how we are suffering on the ground? He briefly visits us to mock us with our problems then off he goes after politicizing our problems. Our businesses have been adversely affected by the power deficits and we have been forced to lay off workers and close some of them! We are not going anywhere naba mudala aba! Too much of himself! He is so thoroughly insulated from reality! His boot lickers are cashing in on his blindness! He should live long to see the rude shock that awaits him!

  14. Who is accompanying him,Findley?Am sure Findley won’t dare at this time.This guy Lungu and his government re already planning the next trip.I think this guy travels a lot to run and hide away from the real problems facing the nation because he has no clue on how to handle the problems.We are so screwed as a nation

  16. This problem started with Bwezani Lungu, Sata took it to an extreme health tourism. Now this mwine Chipata Mbeba has taken traveling to a wholly gutless level. Limiting the number of times the president can undertake in any given month is a Clause they were suppose in insert in that masalamusi constitution of theirs not za upuba they inserted in, including their tiny ubwambaz!
