Pres. Lungu Opens up on Kabila Meeting

President Edgar Lungu has shared notes on his two day interaction with Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) President Joseph Kabila.

The Head of State has given insight on some of the issues touched on between the two countries that share a common wealth on copper.

Kabila is currently in the heat of a political crisis that hinges on the unclear roadmap for elections that were scheduled to take place last year after his mandate lapsed in November 2017.

“I welcomed the President of Democratic Republic of #Congo, His Excellency Mr. Joseph Kabila who was in the country for a two day visit.

“During our bilateral talks at State house, We discussed matters of security, politics and trade between the two countries.

“President Kabila briefed me on how he is dealing with instability in his country so that peace prevails and trade enhance between his country and #Zambia,” Pres. Lungu writes.

“I assured President Kabila that he can count on Zambia for help to mitigate the political challenges which #DRC is facing.

“I am optimistic that the Democratic Republic of #Congo will soon settle its political issues following the agreement President Kabila signed on December 31, 2016, to allow a free election in his county. I thank you.”

Kabila is constitutionally barred from seeking a third term having served out his two terms.

    u are defined by the people u surround yourself with, mr lungu seeks for a third term which z not possible according to our constitution, mr kabila as well has been fightin for an illegal third term and has shed alot of blood in the process, what advice can he possibly render to our already lost president!

    Two dictators can only praise themselves. As far as I am concern, no one should stick in power, the country belongs to the people therefore, only the people decide who can run the country. Kabila is well known as s skillful killer who enjoying the killing of innocent people. He can only the Congolese a favor to pack up his belongings and stay away from politics because he has failed big time. I have a question to Lungu, who told you that Kabila is loved by the people of Congo? 60%? Remember and never forget, Kabila is going to be flushed out from the Congo. No third term to any African president!

      Kabila hasn’t anything for more than 11years except stealing from the Congolese people and killing. Mugabe and Zuma were his accomplices look what happened to them. He is next.

    In my opinion I think kabila’s visit to mother Zambia was very much relevant connoting that the man has reteraly realized his wrong and upon seeing no neighbouring country coming in for advice, decided to seek for a shoulder to Lean on and alternatively hear what the shoulder will say! So there was nothing wrong with kabila coming to Zambia, moreover Congo is our neighborhood, you too have neighbors you can confined to for not everyone can hear you nor hate you. Hence, kabila chose to come here and we have no option but to hear him and that can only be the platform to sort Congo’s problems and a gate way to kabila. Why? His visit is a clear view that he is now willing to do the right thing by seeking advice. The best is yet to come!

    You may not know who causes those frictions in DRC however the leaders of this world are not as sincere as you think, conflicts in Congo are actually prox conflicts involving far more than Kabila himself , some one from some where wants the mineral resources at a song , but if there is peace in drc that cannot happened so those are sponsored wars and they benefit some one bigger than Kabila.

    Edgar is becoming a specialized lier. How can a man who is refusing to step down ensure peace in his country? Y hasn’t he followed the demands from his pipo? There was a hidden agenda between the two illegitimate presidents. We should be very careful lest lungu will destroy our country.

    The purpose of welcoming Joseph Kabila (JK) should not surprise us. Jk’s term lasted in 2016. Check what happened in that year in Zambia up date. If Joseph Kabila cannot comply to his constitutional code, what good session would they have they are in the samecategory?

  19. Dorfrlyn Sojin

    If you are planning to be a thief, you always likely to be found with thieves and ideas with them. Not welcoming Joseph Kabila means you dont like his way of governance. And this maintains your integrity to people. But this was shame. Redcarpety! Check on your excellence.

    “A PERSON who has TWICE held OFFICE as PRESIDENT is NOT ELIGIBLE for ELECTION as PRESIDENT.” This is stated in the CONSTITUTION OF ZAMBIA ACT,2016, ARTICLE 106 (3) CAP 1 OF THE LAWS OF ZAMBIA. Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu, must honour and respect the supreme law of this country, the law which he actually ASSENTED on 5 th January, 2016 in Lusaka at Heroes Stadium. No third term for an individual president who has had taken TWO presidential OATHS!

    On my behalf I can simply say,”if your Constitution of DRC stipulate that no third term to stand as head of executive,there is nothing that he can do Mr Joseph Manila.He can give this opportunity to others who want to become in power.we all know that this opportunity is sweet but on behalf of your people in your country,do what they want to combert conflict in your beautiful country.thank you all
