The Head of State was speaking today when he met the Prime Minister of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

  1. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum- Mr.President how much are selling State House for?

    Edgar Lungu- Not much, not much

    Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum- Deal!!

    • Amos Chanda and Findlay must be missing flying on the jet plane!!
      Imagine how much illegal deals they missed out this weekend in Dubai, the land of crooks.

    • For Sure Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid (Ruler of Dubai), was Laughing in His Heart. Look at these Fools?? They have everything including Freshwater National Parks, Agro Land. But they are begging. Dubai had Nothing, A Desert that has been Turned in to the Best and Most Visited City in the World. “Vision LUNGU VISION”. Zambia is Rich but we have STUPID Leadership… Also, ZAMBIAN CITIZENS are Very STUPID***, because they VOTE Stupidly.

  2. Who cares with what manner of wasteful stupidity this fool indulges in! Next time you will hear it on news while “Kamwendoling” overseas that he has been overthrown in a coup dètat! He must ask Obote and Jaafar Nimeiri who ended up living the rest of their lives as refugees in exile both dying of alcoholism.

  3. Renewable energy with a focus on solar and wind technologies, this is what the president could have done when he become president. NOW its late

  4. Man of God (MOG)
    The Prime Minister of the UAE, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
    President LUNGU met the President of the UAE Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

    My question to Lusaka times and any Lusaka times blogger is; Who is the President / ruler of the UAE? BECAUSE it seems confusing here in this LT article it’s like we have two different name of people under one position. assist me the correct position and answer.

    • Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan is the president of UAE and “ruler of Abu Dhabi” Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum is the Prime minster of UAE and the ruler of Dubai. UAE is made up of seven emirates each having its own ruler. More like Federal system of governance

  5. “……..However, the President said Zambia is faced with Challenges in the energy sector …”

    This is because of climate change…..
    While in other news we have….

    “…..President lungu degazzeted reserve forests 27 for plots …..”

    Everybody Look at this corrupt theiving crook lungu….

    begging for investment to counter the energy crisis caused by climate change while at home the corrupt thief lungu vandalises and loots protected forests ????

  6. Sheikh Al MAKHTOUM; “Boi J0N4, how come your country is broke & failing, despite all the resources you have, + Billions of dollars you acquired as kaloba”?
    J0N4; “eh, eh! donti asiki me, ah! Asiki K4izar, he isi the Zambiani leader, our Commander in Chifu, & I amu vere scared of himu.

  7. Investment opportunities when there is no electricity to go round boost our economy .He is talking to some of the best economists in the world to pour their money in the toilet to be flushed with KZ’s sh!t.

  8. The ruler of UAE will not pay attention to
