Zambia Welcomes Bill Gates Visit

Acting President and Finance and National Planning minister Alexander Chikwanda says Zambia is honored with the visit of the second richest man on the planet and Microsoft founder Bill Gates.

Speaking at a luncheon held in honor of Mr Gates at Lusaka’s Hotel Intercontinental this afternoon, Mr. Chikwanda said the achievements of the founder of Microsoft Corporation go far beyond being a pioneer in the area of information technology.

The acting President has also hailed Mr. Gates, chairman of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for the assistant he has rendered to the World by helping in the areas of HIV/AIDS and Malaria.

The American technology entrepreneur is in Zambia to check up on his foundation’s work in the country.
