President Edgar Lungu will on Monday leave for Japan to attend the Tokyo International Conference on Africa’s Development (TICAD).

President Lungu today met Japanese Ambassador to Zambia Hidenobu Sobashima at State House where he was briefed about the TICAD to be held from August 28-30.

President Lungu is expected back on August 31, 2019.

Ambassador Sobashima said the 7th Summit was not only about Africa but that United Nations bodies like the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) were co-organisers.

During President Lungu’s visit to Japan, memoranda of cooperation on Africa Health and Wellbeing Initiative for government and the private sector of Japan are expected to be signed.

Other memoranda to be signed are on peace and stability, according to a statement issued by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations, Isaac Chipampe.

    TOUR AFTER TOUR…LIVING HUNGER BEHIND.SINDALAMA ZANYOKO.

      #Jungo! The role of a head of state is more than siting at state house and instructing the disaster management unit to distribute maize and other food items to hunger stricken areas. His trips are meant among others to attract investors and sign cooperation agreements which in turn will provide funding and jobs and consequently reduce the hunger in the country. A republican President is not a king who sits in the palace day and day out. He has to travel to look for opportunities to develop this great nation.

    God forbid my fellow Zambians to speak bad words from our mouths against an agenda or a person. Hunger thing and this trip i view them to be two different things. President’s trip is not a tour but a summit. If the situation demands to discuss let us do that at a right time. Please when we are commenting on issues lets be very specific and logical enough. It is my opinion not a command.

    Why should the president be in Japan on 26th for a conference that starts on 28th ? When is the advance party of senior officials leaving? Does he intend yo attend the senior officials prepartory meeting as well? He was after all briefed by Japanese ambassador. We have problems to attend to home.

    Let’s hope the trip will b beneficial cos some trips the president is taking don’t make sense at all. Some presidents don’t make unnecessarily trips e.g president of Tanzania John Magufuli he saves tax payers money by avoiding some of the trips. Anyway good luck our president as you travel to Japan maybe it’s for the good of the country who knows.
