  1. Yaba. Uko. When is the president going to stop galavanting around the world. Just a working visit. Why not do as his predecessors from Super Ken to ECL taking such working visits within Zambia’s tourist destinations? And I thought you were so adamant and condemned ECL’s international trips and the use of the Challenger jet!! Hmmmmm. I guess chiwamina galu. How many times are you going to visit these heads of states that you already meet at international meetings? Just watching from the terraces. ???

  2. Very serious, dedicated, and committed President, we have now. Safe travels your excellency, Zambians are solidly behind you

  4. This Presidents work ethics is good, the damage done by the ubomba mwibala alya mwibala regime was too grave, such trips to SA which is one of our major trading partners is good, and the fact that the balance of trade is not in our favour, as he is fixing these things internally he also needs to go and fix things externally

  6. If you HH7 are just going to chinwag with Cyril Ramaphosa you are just wasting A1 Jet fuel …you need to play hard ball with RSA and its protectionists policies, you can not importing 90% produce and exporting 5% products to RSA…you have to sort out the trade imbalance first!

  7. Henry – You can not compare LAZY LUNGU to anyone the man was absolutely useless I mean this a guy who went with Findlay and Smiling Silwazi to Swaziland just to dress up and see half dressed teenage girls…this is a President who used to fly to RSA unannounced. LAZY was incompetent to say the least.

  10. Bally it’s time you send your ministers to represent you instead try to settle down and

    And others.Zambians are impatiently waiting
    For better days.

  12. Business men like to move. All you see is grown men parading to wave goodbye to Sonny but Sonny is busy consolidating on his business connections. Give him another 2 years and soon he will be competing with Dangote. Let him bring the businessmen, we need to focus on quality and security. This type of capitalism works well if the owners have the upper hand. Zambians should also consider buying established South African businesses to bring that needed investment back home.

  13. He’s probably been summoned by Oppenheimer family the owners of Brenthurst Institution to be censured on why he’s taking too long to handover KCM and Mopani. He must be shivering, the 1 term president. He’ll dance chikokoshi in 2026

  16. Let the President familiarise himself with his fellow Heads of State. South Africa is one of Zambia’s biggest trading partners

  17. Zambians why, do you understand the meaning of courtesy call. He is not going to meet Ramaphosa as primary visit. While in Sa he will pay a by the way visit to Ramaphosa. English is not our friend zoona. When a someone pays a courtesy call it means he has some other primary business he is doing ,now since its in SA territory of Ramaphosa he will pay him a visit.
