President Hichilema Visits Jinggangshan, Commends China’s History


President Hakainde Hichilema visited the historic city of Jinggangshan in Jiangxi Province, People’s Republic of China. During his visit, President Hichilema had the privilege of exploring the Jinggangshan Revolution Museum and the former residence of China’s founding father, Chairman Mao Zedong.

These notable sites pay tribute to the remarkable achievements and sacrifices made by Chairman Mao of the Communist Party of China and the Chinese people on their journey to establishing the People’s Republic of China. The President, accompanied by his delegation, had the opportunity to immerse himself in the rich history of the Chinese revolution during the museum tour and while visiting Chairman Mao’s former home.

The museum and Chairman Mao’s former residence provide a tangible connection to the spirit, artifacts, and values of the Chinese people, underscoring the importance of preserving each piece of history to comprehend the sacrifices of past generations.

Reflecting on the Chinese people’s successful revolution and their attainment of independence, President Hichilema acknowledged the positive impact it had on Zambia. The President recalled how, through negotiations involving Zambia’s founding fathers, Dr. Kenneth David Kaunda and Julius Mwalimu Nyerere of Tanzania, the People’s Republic of China opened the East African trade sea route, benefiting Zambia immensely.

President Hichilema expressed profound gratitude to the People’s Republic of China for their support and emphasized Zambia’s eagerness to learn from China’s economic accomplishments for the betterment of the Zambian people.


  1. He goes 5000 kilometres away to praise other people’s history. I have never heard him praise Zambian History. The other week he was praising Israeli jews. So all the children in Zambia will be forced to admire foreign culture since their elders are. Brainwashed Africans never want to extol themselves.

  2. Mr President, Zambias development is eminent only if we prioritise our real friends and eagerly learn from them. IMF is only a good organisation for Europeans because they borrow at zero interest rate Africa borrows at an iniquitous rate. We sincerely hope that you will have your eyes open when you return from China. Without a vision people perish.

  3. Kaizer Zulu, are you back from your hiding hole.

    Come and save Munir.

    You were very stupidly sure that Pathetic Fools would win.

    Come so that the lawyers eat your money.

  4. Us who paid for our independence do care so much that we will work for our motherland Zambia, my only and only country which people who do NOT understand what independence is, have abused our GOVERNMENT whilst they were in the system turning our government into drinking and dancing on the stage instead of thinking together as a nation. SHEEEEEEEEEEEEMUNA! SHUM!

  5. Ba Pulezidenti what you can learn from China is that progress occurs when you focus on yourself. The Chinese have focused on themselves even when everyone has been laughing at their products in the 70s especially. They did not get demoralized by this but just introspected and corrected themselves. Nowadays everyone is buying Chinese products. Those who specialize in laughing at others like the Zambians are still marking time, producing nothing.
