Headlines President Hichilema in South Africa for the Intra-Africa Trade Fair

President Hakainde Hichilema landed safely this morning at King Shaka International Airport in Durban, South Africa for the 2021 Intra-African Trade Fair as part of economic diplomacy agenda.

President Hichilema is among 8 other Heads of State and Government participating at this year’s Intra-African Trade Fair. President Hakainde Hichilema , is accompanied by Commerce, Trade and Industry Minister Chipoka Mulenga and Community Development and social Services Minister Doreen Mwamba. Intra Africa Trade Fair is platform for business to business and business to Government discussions.

President Hichilema said his government places high value on economic diplomacy because it appreciates the importance of international linkages.

This year’s theme is focused on the newly-launched African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) – a single market for goods and services across 55 countries, aimed at boosting trade and investment.

President Hichilema said whilst at this trade and investment indaba, he will join other Head of States in addressing pertinent issues that border on easing business on the continent and beyond.
“Our mission is to make a case of Zambia as an investment destination in our role as Chief Marketing Officer. The investment we are looking for will be that which is willing to partner with Zambians on a joint venture basis,” he said.

Earlier, the President was received by Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Major General Jackson Miti and other Embassy staff.

A number of Zambian businesses are participating at the continental trade fair, which is Africa’s largest trade show providing a platform for sharing trade, investment and market opportunities.

The event is held every two years to provide trade and market information and to connect buyers and sellers from across the continent.

  2. #2 sometimes its wise for one to think about what they say..in campaign mood they said anything that came to their mind..’we shall bulldoze forest 27..an exercise in futility for those building….’..the kwacha will gain by 14 hours after we are sworn in….;fertiliser will be cheap…mealie will go down…’we shall abolish ratsa’…’ more jobs will be created’…’power cuts will never happen under our watch’ …..’we shall sell the gulfstream’…’ we shall be flying commercial as a cost serving measure…’ …’ we shall be briefing the nation about each travel when we get back…’ lets just say reality check this is grz not a cattle ranch……

  4. Fixing the economy ,boosting trade and fighting corruption are HH’s priorities coz he rightly realizes how much 10yrs of PF rule damaged Zambia economically.

  5. I like the way he selects Ministers that should be on his entourage. This one is a great leader. He travels on important programs for which Zambia stands to benefit. Negative comments are coming from bitter people. Just look at the names of Ministers escorting him? Not with the previous government. For them it would only be their own or tribal cousins. Ala Mae Lesa ekomwaba! Ba PF bakwete akapatulula akabi sana! This was divine intervention indeed to save Zambia from tribal/regional polarization.

  6. Where are the Kasolo Brothers to tear through HH? They have teamed up to ensure HH is a one-term president. One of them named Saulosi is up spewing insults and demeaning a man who won by a landslied. Their PF dream crumbled and they came to the end of the road with vile. Chill, we know who you are.

  7. Of course HEHH will use the challenger jet , it is sitting there doing nothing including maintenance costs ……….

    And he is not using it to go dancing like lungu did……….

    HEHH will surely pass recommendations to see if the money stolen by lungu and his gang in buying that jet can be recouped…..

  8. BALLY THE LIAR said he was going to travel commercial. But his lies have short legs and catching up with him as he is now using the presidential jet. One wonders whether he is again thinking of auctioning it. It was like he used to feel bad to see ECL use it. He is President now and thinks why not use it myself. Mwamona bane, ubufi bulabwela. Iwe kalume we bange waimbile ulwibo at BUFI, ulikwi? Come you play us that song BUFI.

  9. Even the UPND cadres who were contributing from their salaries every month to the UPND in the opposition in the hope of buying jobs for themselves once UPND came into power are not amused. I over-heard one of them from her office this morning muttering to herself: ” He has travelled again…iyai…this is too much”. In my heart of hearts I was saying to her “Wabamo or bakubamo”

  10. Truth be told. Is this really necessary? A representative would equally do the job under strict guidance offcourse. God forbid, I fear the man may end up catching Covid before we reap the benefits of his leadership.

  11. For the few misguided souls, PF promised more money in peoples pockets and for 10 years nothing happened, HH has 5 years to prove himself, what he said during campaigns was not constitutional and is not binding , What is binding is the mandate period which is the constitutional five years, so stop flaunting your ignorance here. He is working, he is in Durban now

  12. @Sansanya just because you see names Mulenga and Mwamba does not mean the are Bembas. Why do you see everything through the tribal lenses like HH.

  14. @Nostrasamus. This youngman’s dad used to work in the media. Sadly, he passed while in the US. When he was very young he was a really good boy. Sadly he grew up ichiwelewele. You can tell by the way he uses foul language at people older than him.

  17. Edgar is still being vindicated by these trips. Less than 3 months in office, three expensive trips. If it was Edgar. Ukulanda kwalyanguka!!

    Can someone on this forum honestly tell me what upnd has done in the first three of being in office apart from arresting Amos Chanda and family, Dr. Chitalu Chilufya, Chishimba Kambwili and Ronald Chitotela.
