President-elect hold talks with USAID

General News President-elect hold talks with USAID

President-elect Hakainde Hichilema conferred with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Administrator Samantha Power through a call yesterday.

President-elect Hichilema said his administration will ensure to deliver to the Zambian people as promised.

Mr. Hichilema expressed confidence that Zambia’s democratic progress can serve as an example for other nations globally.

Mr. Hichilema laid out his plans for fighting corruption among other issues aimed at strengthening democratic values, press freedom and civil liberties.

“It is important for my new government to demonstrate that it can deliver for the people of Zambia, especially young people,” said Mr. Hichilema in a statement released by USAID spokesperson Rebecca Chalif.

Ms. Power noted that the United States was looking forward to partnering with the President-elect’s government as it seeks to meet the Zambian people’s democratic and economic aspirations.

She listed USAID’s support to the Zambian people across programming sectors such as health, education, climate change, economic development, democracy and governance.

Administrator Power congratulated Mr. Hichilema on his election as the seventh President of Zambia.

This was contained in a statement issued to ZANIS by USAID spokesperson Rebecca Chalif who stated that the two discussed the critical role played by the Zambian civil society during the peaceful election and how their vigilant oversight increased the transparency of the electoral process.

Ms. Chalif added that engagement of the civil society contributed to the widespread confidence in the results, despite the constraints imposed by the government on the President-elect, including limits on his movement and a social media shutdown that started on election day.

Ms. Powers and Mr. Hichilema also discussed the challenges that Zambia and the world are facing as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and further pledged to work together in an effort to fight the pandemic and accelerate Zambia’s economic recovery.

  3. Kaizar, are you that dull?
    USAID is a major stakeholder in Zambia’s development and any government would be wise to work with them.
    Lungu and PF also worked with USAID.

  7. Kaizar you are one of the people that made PF unpopular and repulsive to many of the Zambians. Best you watch from afar. A presidential adviser with thuggish behaviour . You failed to use your position to endear million of Zambians instead you abused it. People are still enjoying the newly found freedom they are coming for you. The one forgiving is HH in his personal capacity note the masses. So do provoke people when the wounds are just beginning to heal. Umulandu tawubola. I submit

  8. The comments I see on articles by Zambians are always adversarial. Is this how Zambians are wired. Why can’t there be positive thinking and propositions. Always sinking low, instead of rising up. Please learn to provide constructive criticism and comments. What exactly is the Zambian spirit? It can’t be fighting and arguing all the time. Please don’t insult me. I stop here.

  12. Kaiser Zulu you are heartless and wicked. You will be answerable to the atrocities and crimes you committed during PF violent government. You were used to control your weak former president who failed to uphold the rule of law. Thuggish and lawless characterized PF government. It is only president Edgar Lungu who can appoint a foolish person like you Kaiser Zulu to be a political advisor. All the wealth you corruptly acquired will be recovered through proper means.

  13. Really laughable…the UK based troll/ impostor has no understanding of wealth creation no point engaging it.

  18. KZ , why should HH spend his personal hard earned finances to fund the country’s problems when you know very well who squandered the country’s money? Your mentality is so poor and no wonder you guys mismanaged our country’s resources. You have no understanding of simple economics.
    HH is not going to use his personal money to cover up your gaps. Is this why you guys were spending state money? Because you could not distinguish between what is personal and what belongings to the state? That’s total confusion!

  19. So HH simply has a bigger begging bowl than Lungu and the half baked Lawyer Elias Munshya with his biased nonsensical livestreams….Anonymous is here to take down HH and whoever is with him….i single handedly defeated all the UPND bloggers in 2016…and you will feel the heat…..am non Partisan….i called Edgar Bandit President and i will be on HH’s neck….2026 Harry Kalaba will be next

  26. Anonymous are again bringing tribalism. What’s wrong with you people. Is this what you teach your children.

  27. It wasn’t a beauty contest.
    Let’s hear his team as in ministers, permanent secretaries, dcs and ambassadors.
    Wasn’t a beauty contest at all.

  28. Too much ignorance among some commentators. You mean to tell me you don’t know the need to engage with cooperating partners as a civilised global citizen. Ubututu. You can’t even offer any good arguments about how USAID support or that of any partner is structured. Fyonse fibi coz it is HH. Get over it.

  29. He is not dull like you who got your share from unknown sources. just watch the space. zambians now feel comfortable than ever before in their own country. You should be ashamed of yourself.

  30. @kaiza, how dull can a former political adviser be? Does the president need to use personal money foe public service? He only reached out to USAID to cement the relations that were almost severed by the corrupt regime!!

  31. We will start drinking water with USAID on it. GMO, here we come. We are in trouble. After 57 years of freedom, people are dancing to auctioning our country? Just ask the people of Afghanistan, Iraq, Haiti, Libya, Palastine…list goes on. UPND is fast and furious. They will dance with you but when caught between the people and them, it will be the end of you.
