Presidents of Zambia and Botswana Meet to Strengthen Bilateral Ties


President Hakainde Hichilema yesterday welcomed His Excellency Dr. Mokgweetsi Eric Keabetswe Masisi, the President of the Republic of Botswana, at the Kazungula Bridge border post.

President Masisi’s visit to Zambia marks a crucial moment in the ongoing efforts to deepen bilateral relations between the two neighboring countries. The meeting between the two leaders provided an opportunity to review and discuss various aspects of cooperation, including enhancing people-to-people connections and strengthening multilateral relations within the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

During his working visit, President Masisi engaged in discussions aimed at signing memoranda of understanding across various fields. These agreements are intended to further solidify the bonds of friendship and cooperation between Zambia and Botswana.

President Hichilema expressed his gratitude for President Masisi’s visit and emphasized the importance of fostering strong ties between the two nations. The meeting underscores the commitment of both leaders to promote mutual prosperity and development in the region.


  1. The bridge already has 2 pot holes that have not been fixed on the bridge its self as i crossed on Sunday, wonder if they fixed them for the visit?

  2. HH need some rest this weekend, the guy has been busy past 2 weeks, adding to his daily commutes to state house. Hope he gets massage at state house before taking a long road trip to go bed.

  3. Resting yes but what keeps him is the Almighty God. He is not a dancer like some “Presidents” everyone knows. He is simply a hard worker.

  4. We should share information on how to manage elephant populations and wildlife in general. Perhaps some of the elephants can be imported from Botswana because they have too many of them that side

  5. “underscores” Hamasaka! HH will never be free until he admits the Kazungula bridge’s brilliancy and the people that made it happen. Asking you creditors that we will pay tomorrow is not an achievement though the praise team have been made to believe so.
