Headlines Foreign Affairs Minister Defends HH's long stay at Mining Indaba in Cape...

Minister of foreign affairs Mr Stanley Kakubo says that President Hichilema’s participation in the Indaba presents a great opportunity for Zambia to market her rich mineral resource and investment potential to the international mining community.

The Indaba will create a platform for high-level engagement, sharing of information on this strategic sector, and creation of synergies that will accrue benefits to the Zambian people.

He said the President has always underscored the key role that the mining sector will continue to play in accelerating economic growth through harnessing available opportunities in the sector; increasing copper and other mineral production; maximizing benefits from various metals; further exploration and value addition as well as positioning the country to be a lead manufacturer of mineral value-added products.

To this end, he said, President Hichilema’s participation in the Mining Indaba is projected to unlock opportunities for investment; reinforce bilateral relations with other countries within the region and further strengthen partnerships for greater cooperation in the country’s quest for development for the

  1. Folks, stop justifying everything, For a President, 4 days in a foreign country not in official visit is a long time. Are you using the calendars you got from the Chinese ??

  2. Kagame came for one day and the praise team was all over themselves… HOW SERIOUS HH WAS UNLIKE EDGAR LUNGU WHO USED TO SPEND MANY LAZY DAYS ON SUCH OCCASIONS. Besides Kakubo is under a microscope, so what else do we expect him to say?

  3. Attending such events is not just about going to listen to key notes and get flyers…………or giving a keynote speech then heading home………

    Meetings must be attended with players in the mining and metal industries to get maximum benefits……………

    4 days having meetings is a fair amount of time…………

  4. I’m just infinitely worried about the environment. In the hullabaloo of getting all those investors on board, the environment is clearly completely forgotten. And we will only find out in a couple of years time when certain rivers are totally polluted, thousands of hectares of valuable agricultural have been wasted, and all electricity has been sold off to the mines and ordinary Zambians are prone to loadshedding. Thank you guys!

  5. And I can already see those poor service chiefs being called to the airport to shout hurray for the president having conquered the world. Oh no, I’m wrong, the president will only have sold off the country to ruthless mining companies and corrupt Chinese billionaires!

  6. This is the type of guy to defend HH, even where he has caught hh red handed effing his wlfe. Ati awe hh was just tightening the zip on her dress

  7. I agree the Indaba is a good opportunity to attract investment into the country but surely four (4) days long stay cannot be described as a head of state’s best use of his valuable limited time. The opportunity cost is way too high.

  8. While the President is marketing Zambia’s minerals to the global market for investment purposes, concerned citizens should also start skilling, empowering and equipping the youth at home so that they could also participate in the mining and other sectors for their own economic benefits. Let’s be proactive rather than being reactive.

  10. After the thieves left there is much fresh air and they have resorted to paint anything black on the achievement of New Dawn Government. This is not working for you come up progressive ideas which will counter those of HH. Without that you are going no where and imagine the pains you subjected the Zambians to and also have new faces not the Mwambas
