  1. We are tired of bilateral talks. All the past presidents had held bilateral with the same presidents Hakainde is meeting.

    The next president will continue holding bilateral talks. Bilateral talks is a language to justify unnecessary costs and trips.

    What do you expect from Ethiopia, war is all over the country.

  2. Salute Ethiopian leadership, great partner especially in the agricultural sector, advanced Ed private sector that is locally driven. Lots of impressive infrastructure projects that Zambia can learn from. Salute the meeting with the African Development Bank – Adesina is a committed pan African and salute his dedication to Agriculture – the engine to Africa and Zambia’s economic growth

  3. This under 5 can’t believe he is president. He can’t teka his backside for a week in zambia. He is busy cutting his own business deals

  4. Typical AU leaders smiling with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed everyone is afraid of talking about the war in his country …all the hundreds of illegal migrates being caught in trucks in Zambia enroute to RSA.

  5. Choked with bitterness – Zambians are happy with HH in power – for long time to come, Zambia is now peaceful

  6. SHOW MEW AN AFRICAN LEADER WHO ISNT IN SOME SMALL WAY A DICTATOR
    SURELY THE AFRICAN CONTINENT’S STATE TELLS YOU SOMETHING

  7. Zaire president you can only talk about rebala not business. Ethopia is also the country of the war. Those talks they yield nothing, therefore I don’t see any benefits.
