NANCY SIAME, Lusaka
PRESIDENT Lungu is in Namibia to attend that country’s independence celebrations as well as the inauguration of its third President Hage Geingob.
On departure from Lusaka yesterday, President Lungu told journalists at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport (KKIA) that his trip to join Namibians in their celebrations is that of goodwill.
Mr Lungu said Zambia has contributed so much to the liberation of countries in the southern region and deserves to join them in celebrations.
“We share so much in common with them and I feel obliged to celebrate with them. Without Zambia’s contribution, the liberation of this region would have taken much longer,” President Lungu said.
He said Namibia has been a good neighbour which joined in celebrating Zambia’s jubilee and was represented during the funeral of late President Sata.
“They are our neighbours and this is a sign of good neighbourliness,” Mr Lungu said.
The President is accompanied by former President Rupiah Banda, his special assistant for press and public relations Amos Chanda and other government officials.
Mr Lungu was seen off by Vice-President Inonge Wina, several cabinet ministers, defence chiefs and other senior government and Patriotic Front (PF) party officials.
