Pres. Lungu Heads to Luapula to Check on Refugees

President Edgar Lungu will follow through on resolutions on the Great Lakes region summit by doing an on the spot check on asylum seekers from the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Head of State will be in Nchelenge and visit the Kenani Refugee Transit Centre which has been swarmed by prospective refugees from the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo.

He will be joined by different United Nations agencies and humanitarian agencies in trying to find a solution to the worsening refugee situation.

Among the key concerns is the welfare of refugees that spreads to medical suppliers and food.

The refugee problem has worsened with the degenerated security situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

DRC leader Joseph Kabila has refused to step down to pave way for elections after having served his mandatory two year terms with the situation leading to over 5, 000 asylum seekers crossing over into Zambia.

    Zambia should work towards a stable DRC. A politically stable DRC is very much in our own interests. Kabila should be forced to respect the constitution and step down to pave way for elections. Holding on to power is old fashioned politicking of yesterday. President Lungu should put political pressure on his counterpart to respect the constitution of DRC

    This kind of gesture is humbling, for 5000 asylum seekers will need medical and food supplies @ short notice@ as a prerequisite.
    Why do Our African statemen want to rule as though the country were a Monarch when not?
    Displacing 5000 citizens is a big undertaking. Think about how 5000 displaced people will lag in Social ameneties such as eduction and all else.
    Bena(refugees) ni cikulu bwaca. If our bro Joe Kabila was in attendance of the meeting/summit in the Great Lakes region didn’t anyone there want to know how he came to displace that number of fellow country men and why? Comment
