Pres. Lungu in SA to seek DRC Solution

President Edgar Lungu is in South Africa to confer with his South African counterpart Cyril Ramaphosa on the electoral process in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The Head of State will also undergo a routine medical check-up whilst in South Africa.

Meanwhile earlier on Tuesday President Edgar Lungu met with a European Union delegation that comprised a Germany and Swiss minister on the electoral standoff in the DRC that has seen the announcement of results delayed.

President told the EU delegation that as the Head of the SADC troika on Defence and Security he will lead efforts for a peaceful solution in the DRC.

Delay in announcement of election results in the DRC have heightened instability in the vast mineral rich country.

 

EU head of delegation Alessandro Marian expressed confidence that Zambia would help find solutions to the Congo situation.

    1. Why does the president of Zambia need to go to South Africa for a routine physical check. What does that tell you about health care in Zambia and what is his lazy, useless, corrupt ass doing about it.
    2. What is the president of Zambia going to do about DRC elections, when his own election was suspicious and dubious? The hypocrisy is rich!

    The President is the Head of the SADC Troika in Defence and Security. It is the duty of the President to ensure that all problems related to the matters of Defence and Security within the Region are dealt with. Please leave him do his noble task.

      What a bunch of jokers. When Mugabe lost elections this same SADC forced the winner to form a unity government with Mugabe the loser and called it African peaceful solution. Let’s clean our act and let credible entities handle such matters. Zimbabwe has never been the same after the SADC mess up.

    The head of state has to follow same one who thinks can do the right thing we can’t forget that we one travels for a good reason should do but look at the situation of being sick or unfit this is another serious case we don’t want our President to over lord himself otherwise lost of live may occur (At work we are being told to do one thing at a time otherwise misunderstood

    I’m taking over in 2021 I won’t allow Major General Koswe in 2021 I won’t allow him to have another illegal term in office. First move I’ll strip him off immunity and appoint marry stuma as ACC commissioner general, call on the UN to investigate him and his former government for corruption and abuse of office, power and violating the constitution. Appoint an office holder in the office of the auditor general.
    I’ll abolish the constitutional court and restore sanity in the judiciary to the extent of jailing those Koswe judges.
    Miss Issac won’t go unpunished she still stands on my FBI most wanted list alongside Chulu.
    And Banda must resume court appearing till I’m convinced. I’ll shake up the 🚓 police command and you can guess who is leaving the command. I’ll recall libongani to be welcomed with a special appointment. Emmanuel I will recall also so that he stays home he is an embarrassment to the nation. the cabinet will be reduced twice to where it stands and a 50% salary reduction 🔺 for all members of the cabinet. The attorney general shall be the head of the Justice ministry and all provincial ministries abolished PSs shall run the provinces. Including abolishing the ministry of religious affairs and the presidential affairs ministry. Zoko and Kingsley are also going.

    Due to the check up this journey couldn’t have occurred. In reality some letters could be in process to meet by agreeing on one thing how to solve the situation even in your organization if you keep on meeting like this no concrete decision will be made neglecting other members The reason is to go for check up that so with that it has been to his advantage to meet South African president don’t cheat people you are old enough PLEASE

    Congo is a country devided due to ethnic differences and the situation is made worse by its vastness . A country the size of western Europe is just too big to be handled by a President alone . I think they should adopt a parliamentary system of a prime minister like the one in India. Otherwise the problems of that country shall never end.

    Insulting the president will not make hakainde win elections he was born a loser and will die a loser by the way newbei tell us did he fuck your dirt mother?

    Children of the almost high God pliz don’t comment out of emotions and negligence.It is not good to insult each other.My concern on this trip is that people are not diffenciating between Zambia as a country and Sadc as a whole region.Lungu undertakes a trip with the view to ensuring role play as a Sadc leader not as a presido.Let him play his role as a region leader.If u ar facing challenges related to his incompeteness tell hin whilst in the state house he is a human being he wl take note and address them
