KELVIN CHONGO, Lusaka
PRESIDENT Paul Kagame of Rwanda is today expected in Zambia for a two-day state visit during which bilateral agreements are expected to be consolidated.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Harry Kalaba said in an interview in Lusaka yesterday that President Lungu will confer with Mr Kagame on various areas of cooperation during his state visit.
“The state visit is important for the two countries as the two leaders need to share knowledge on various issues, and Zambia can learn from Rwanda because that country is much advanced in the area of Information and communications technology (ICT) which Zambia is trying to develop,” said Mr Kalaba.
President Kagame, who is coming to Zambia at the invitation of president Lungu, is expected to lay wreaths at the presidential burial ground where three late Zambian Presidents, Frederick Chiluba, Levy Mwanawasa and Michael Sata, are buried.
President Kagame will also visit Kafue district to tour Kafue Steel Company, which is owned by Universal Mining and Chemicals Industries Limited under Trade Kings Group.
