  1. I hope this trip will help bring about the end to the ever expanding human encroachment on virgin forests in Zambia. We need forests, not concrete deep in the bush – where will the animals live when forests are gone? Recently I was checking out stuff on a Website, and to my shock, there were utensils made in Asia, of wood from Acacia trees! An Acacia tree is food for elephants and a few other animals. If these trees are being cut down in Zambia, then we are truly lost! How can we be doing this to our wildlife? Our people need to wake up to the destruction going on right under their noses. Doesn’t Zambia have environmentalists??..

  6. There is no point of attending that summit because as soon as our president or any African representative start making a speech the assembly will be empty with maybe just African leaders listening to the speech and the rest of European and other developed countries representatives will be not in attendance because they have always rubbishing our ideas and we don’t see that.

  7. JOHN M. ITS BETTER TO DELIVER A SPEECH TO THE SUMMIT EVEN IF THE MOST POWERFUL LEADRS ARE NOT IN ATTENDANCE THE MESSAGE WILL GET ACROSS AND RECEIVE THE DUE ATTENTION. ITS NOT THE LEADERS WHO ADDRESS THE VARIOUS ISSUES GOING TO RAISED THE VARIOUS EXPERTS WILL TAKE NOTE OF ALL CONCERNS.

  8. PF Fun club.
    ECL was always condemned, because 1) his entourage was always huge including musian affiliated to PF 2) It involved throwing out parties 3) were moreless shopping and outcome without value 4) were not vibrant in using the opportunity to interact with other world leaders to negotiate deals for Zambia. 5) was using expensive means of transport. 6) uless travels even internally on the socalled infrastructure inspections, the sh!t that his ministers would have been doing 6) the list goes on….
    HH`s 2 trips made thus far 1) used cheaper means of transportation 2) are thin on entourage 3) the USA trip brought 30mil USD from USAID.
    SO WHAT IS YOUR POINT IN CONDEMNING HH Travels?

  9. AS CITIZENS WE HAVE TRUST IN HH AS WE BELIEVE THE TRIPS ARE FOR THE GOOD OF THE NATION AS EVIDENCED BY HIS GOOD SPEECHES AT THE SUMMITS COUPLED WITH A PRESS CONFERENCE HERE IN ZAMBIA TO UPDATE CITIZENS WHEN HE RETURNS. DID EDGAR CHAGWA EVER HOLD A PRESS CONFERENCE TO EXPLAIN HIS VISIT TO THE USA, SOUTH AFRICA OR UGANDA? KAINZI ADWALA SOUR GRAPES!!

    Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema has demanded that government must come clean on the alleged plunder of national resources during President Edgar Lungu’s foreign trips.

    Mr Hichilema stated that the leaked dossier as published by the News Diggers on the abuse of public resources by President Lungu and his PF leadership cannot be taken lightly.
