German President Frank-Walter Steinmeier Embarks on Two-Day State Visit to Zambia


Germany’s Federal President, His Excellency Dr. Frank-Walter Steinmeier, is set to undertake a significant two-day State Visit to Zambia from November 1st to 2nd, 2023. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Zambia announced this highly anticipated visit, highlighting its importance for the strengthening of bilateral ties and the pursuit of shared developmental goals.

During the visit, President Steinmeier and President Hakainde Hichilema, are expected to engage in bilateral discussions that will center on a range of critical areas of mutual interest for both nations. These key issues include cooperation in water and sanitation, agriculture, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) development, energy, trade, and investment, among other significant sectors.

Furthermore, President Steinmeier is slated to visit projects in Zambia that have received support from the German Government. These projects exemplify the ongoing collaboration between the two nations in various sectors, and President Steinmeier will have the opportunity to witness firsthand the positive impact of this cooperation. One notable event on the agenda is the signing of an agreement between the Zambian Department of Water and KfW Development Bank, which is set to take place in Livingstone.

Kakubo, M.P, stressed the importance of President Steinmeier’s visit in reinforcing the longstanding and excellent bilateral ties that exist between Zambia and Germany. These ties are rooted in shared values and mutual aspirations for prosperity, making the visit a pivotal occasion for Zambia to further its partnership with Germany, a global economic powerhouse and a prominent member of the European Union.

Minister Kakubo emphasized that the visit holds great significance for the Zambian Government, providing an opportunity to foster sustainable development for the mutual benefit of both nations. The high-level engagements and discussions are expected to make significant contributions to Zambia’s Economic Transformation Agenda and deliver tangible benefits to the Zambian people.

  1. You are not educated. A Germany President don’t deal with your sewage challenges in Lusaka, ask Germany Chancellor for that help.
    This president should just spend his 2 days in Mfuwe with HH together with ECL watching elephants and drinking, uniting the 2 men .

    • It’s the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the Chancellor of the country that has sent the President on a visit to Zambia. The same with King Charles’ visit to Kenya. It’s the UK government that has sent him to undertake the state visit. Both men hold the position of ceremonial head of state in the two European parliamentary democracies.

    • One Nation: This person was not alive when Lether von Trother killed all those Herero and Darman in Namibia, 110 years ago. He is not even old enough to have been there when Hitler was trying to wipe out the people of Eastern Europe. You are as out of bounds as I would be, were I to blame Miles Sampa for all those Zambian who were sold to Arab as slaves by the people of a certain province

    • LT why are you allowing these racists to comment on your website? This is embarrassing… I will try delete your website tomorrow because I have time off.

    • You call people who committed genocide on your neighbours in Namibia premier League? Africans will never shed inferiority complexes!

  2. Yet another whlte colonialist coming to check up on their uncle tom hh. Coming to ensure gay rights are top agenda

    • Does eating a burger score on the knowledge scale? Does a burger contribute to healthy nutrition? Or is eating a burger a mark of being woke? Just so we know, Burgers and other fast foods are the chief contributors to diabetes and HBP especially among African Americans. Diabetes afflicts more blacks than any other race yet before the arrival of the muzungu there was zero diabetes in Africa

  3. You brought anthrax to cripple agriculture, particularly livestock. Then, you came with a vested interest in agriculture investment to become the sole trader in butcheries, alongside Hunger Hindes and Zambeef. That’s quite a monopoly. The only ones who will be given licenses not the poor Zambian slaves, theirs is to be laborers in the Zambian Farm.

    Zambians are enduring hunger under Hunger Hinde. This is to be expected when you’re burdened by IMF debt, which is modern slavery. One can either seek escape like the brave slaves of old did into free states or face the prospect of perishing in this Zambian farm, with Hunger Hinde as the supervisor or farm manager for the slave masters. The sooner you realize this, the better.

    Hunger Hinde

  4. What mine has he come to collect while Zambian miners are called illegal miners by the Chief privatization officer. Someone who calls himself a salesman by selling the country to foreigners.

  5. KIKIKI just read the stup1d comments
    colonialist ?? since the beginning of time what have we really achieved on our own apart from cheating each other and acting like bottom feeders
    we need help from respectable partners
    NOT advise from Id1ots

    • Inferiority complex in this farm laborer is disappointing. You don’t trust your own abilities. These same farm owners utilize the abilities and expertise from the locals as laborers.
