President Lungu hails the cordial and closer ties between Zambia and Zimbabwe

General News President Lungu hails the cordial and closer ties between Zambia and Zimbabwe

Zambia’s President Edgar Lungu has hailed the cordial and closer ties that have existed between Zambia and Zimbabwe since the time of the liberation struggle particularly, for the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region.

The President described the relations between Zambia and Zimbabwe as inseparable and that the collaboration between the two countries is further enhanced by the membership of the duo to the SADC, African Union and other regional and multilateral bodies.

The Head of State recalls how the two countries are fondly referred to as Siamese twins adding that Zambia and Zimbabwe has been working very well since the liberation days.

“As you go back to Zimbabwe, please convey a message of solidarity to my brother President Emmerson Mnangagwa. Your Excellency, thank you so much and God bless you and wish you well in your future endeavors,” the President said.

The President said this when Zimbabwe’s High Commissioner to Zambia Gertrude Ratidzo Takawira, paid a courtesy call on him to bid farewell as she winds down her tour of duty in Zambia.

Earlier, the High Commissioner expressed gratitude to President Lungu for the support rendered to her during her tour of duty in Zambia.

She applauded specifically the support that the Zambian Government rendered to Zimbabwe in 2016 when the country faced food shortages due to drought and Zambia came to that country’s aid.

“Thankyou for your support, generosity and hospitality that made me very comfortable during my stay in Zambia,” the High Commissioner said.


  1. We share a strong bond with our struggling brothers and sisters across the Zambezi. Zambia will always stand in solidarity with the people of Zimbabwe.

    However, I think both ZESA and ZESCO are underpaying Zambezi Revenue Authority, in water charges, leaving our joint assets like Kariba vulnerable on capital expenses. So no brotherhood on this one. Market price only.

  2. Yes our dear brothers. We miss our father and comrade Mugabe. We still mourn him and will ensure to work with Zimbabwe to keep his dream alive. Leadership is not learned at Birmingham university economics department but rather one is born a leader like his excellency ec lungu and the late comrade Mugabe

  3. Zambian Citizen – You are as thick as porridge the country is on its kneels and broke, only you imbeciles are surviving through hand me downs from your corrupt ministers. There is nothing Lungu can point at state that its a success without ignoring the debt he has imposed on future grandchildren.
    Lungu is wasted time!

  4. Tarino: diasporan donkey!! Who told you the country is on its knees?? Show me which country that is debt free. That borrowed money has given us hospitals, roads etc-are you aware that PF is the first GRZ to build a power plant at Kafue Lower since KK was in power?? Kazungula bridge is almost done. ECL is the first president not to have Deputy Ministers and he can’t fire Judges. Lungu is our president in charge and we shall give him another mandate in 2021 because we will never trust hungry hyena!!

  5. Lungu should have told her to remind Mnangangwa to at least start paying for what they owe for the construction of Kariba Dam. That is money owed from decades ago! One hope the Lungu and friends have made sure they are not dupped again in the Batoka Dam project. Once beaten twice shy!
