While in the country, Lt. General Khama, paid a curtesy call on, President Hakainde Hichilema at State House and also met with the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Co-operation Honourable Stanley Kakubo.

President Khama, whose family enjoys long-time family ties with that of late Founding President of Zambia, Dr. Kenneth David Kaunda, had occasion to visit the Kaunda family, represented by Dr. Kaunda’s eldest son, Colonel Panji Kaunda to pay his respects and commiserate with the family.

For his part, President Banda, greatly appreciates and cherishes the visit as a gesture of true friendship and goodwill by Former President of Botswana, Lt. General Seretse Khama Ian Khama.


  1. @ JUST WAIT #3, he probably did but in privacy. Former president ECL has elected to stay away from the public limelight and former president General Kharma respects that. This is not an issue. If he didn’t visit him, there will be other times. There’s nothing wrong with that.

  2. He does not entertain dictators , that is the reason why he did not see Mr I will handle power to someone who is me Edgar chagwa lungu yeeeeéeeeeereereeee.
