Lungu invites Tshisekedi

President Edgar Lungu has invited newly elected leader of the neighbouring Democratic Republic of Congo Felix Tshisekedi for a state visit to Zambia.

He extended an invitation for a visit, at President Tshisekedi’s convenience, when the two met on the sidelines of the African Union Summit in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

President Lungu also personally congratulated Tshisekedi on his election as President of the DRC.

“The leaders of the two neighbouring states discussed bilateral issues and committed to helping Congo to attain durable peace and stability to foster development. The leaders also called for close bilateral cooperation between the two countries…pledged to promote trade, social and cultural exchanges for the benefit of the two peoples,” stated Inutu Mwanza, the first secretary Press at the Zambian mission in Addis Ababa.

President Lungu, who has since returned home, was in Addis Ababa to attend the 32nd Ordinary Session of the African Union Heads of State and Government Summit.

    Mr President Lungu was on a wrong side of Katumbi and Kagame who wanted to see Congo into trouble for them to make business but migthy God has confused them by establishing Felix as a president who will make Congo Great and peaceful.
