Lungu Heads to Angola

E.Lungu-EthiopiaPresident Edgar Lungu is today headed to neighbouring Angola on his third international assignment since taking over power on January, 20.

And President Lungu says contrary to early perceptions that he was enjoying travelling the trips he had made so far were merely out of necessity.

President Lungu has so far been to the African Union Heads of State summit in Ethiopia and called on Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe who is the new AU chair with the Angola stop his third.

He said that he could not turn down the Angola invite as it was a special from President Eduardo Dos Santos to witness the commissioning of a road that connects Zambia to Angola.

“I know that there is already talk that I am enjoying travelling which is not true
because I am working and these trips are necessary. I could not refuse to going to Angola because I was invited to witness a road that connects Zambia to Angola and also address a special session of parliament,” he said.

President Lungu is expected back in the country on Saturday.
