Speaker of Zambian National Assembly appreciates India’s lines of credit for key sectors


Speaker of the Zambian National Assembly Nelly Mutti has expressed her appreciation for India’s four lines of credit, which are being utilized in key sectors such as transportation, hydro-power, and health. The Speaker, speaking during a visit to India with a parliamentary delegation, noted the strong development partnership between the two countries.

During her visit, Speaker Mutti met with Republican President Droupadi Murmu and India’s External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar, as well as India’s Vice President Jagdeep Dhanker. President Murmu welcomed the Zambian delegation and spoke about the strong and cordial relations between India and Zambia. He highlighted that the leaders of the Zambian freedom struggle drew inspiration from the Indian freedom struggle, especially that of Mahatma Gandhi. The President also noted that bilateral trade has been growing steadily and India is one of the leading investors in Zambia.

In her meetings with Indian leaders, Speaker Mutti discussed economic and development cooperation and called for the strengthening of existing ties, which she attributed to President Hakainde Hichilema’s international relations and economic diplomacy. The Speaker and her delegation also held talks with India’s Vice President Jagdeep Dhanker, who emphasized the warm relations and historic cultural ties shared between the two nations.

Speaker Mutti expressed confidence that the visit would make the bonds between Zambia and India even stronger. The delegation consisted of Deputy Government Parliamentary Whip and Keembe MP Princess Kasune, Mitete lawmaker Misheck Mutelo, and other parliamentary staff.


  1. I hope these meetings haven’t been organized by Agarwal the Vedanta chap. I say so because Nelly Mutti’s engagements are far from Parliamentary business. She has failed to impartially preside over our Parliament and instead of using her trip to India to learn how her Indian counterpart accommodates the opposition and minorities, she’s there talking about India’s lines of credit! Is she on Parliamentary business or she’s gone to cut business deals? This UPND Government is messing up Zambia big time. By the time they’re done very little will be left. Is it surprising that even Mwami 1 has given himself the decorum he doesn’t deserve? Now the Army Commander and the ZNS Commandant have same ranks! Nipano tuli

  2. How do you have such a self hating creature in that position? A woman thar old who uses jaribu is not a good role model for our young children. She hates blackness
    Yes I have changed my name to reflect the level of anger I feel towards this failed upnd government experiment.
