Filed under: More News |

RB with USA envoy to Zambia Mark Storella yesterday after they a hour talk in Lusaka

Former Republican President, Rupiah Banda, says he is hopeful that Africa leaders will strive to provide sustainable solutions to the many challenges facing the youths in the continent.

Mr Banda revealed that from his interactions with students at Boston University, its affiliate institutions and from the University of Ghana, it came to his attention that African youths are faced with common problems which were not insurmountable if the leaders committed themselves to finding workable solutions.

This is contained in a press release issued by the office of the Fourth Republican President Administrative Assistant, Mikatazo Wakumelo.

“From the various universities I have been to, the concerns of the African youths are about their future; whether their leadership will be able to provide them with a good health delivery system, education, jobs. Their hope is that the economies of their countries can grow to address their concerns,” President Banda said.

MeanwhileMr Banda is tomorrow expected to continue with his African tour of duty as he heads to Tanzania.

While in Tanzania, Mr Banda is expected to lecture on good governmence and democracy at Mwalimu Nyerere’s Mlimani campus on Thursday afternoon.

His lecture will be attended by staff and graduate students from the University Development Studies and political science.

The Tanzanian trip is part of the Boston University African President Centre where Mr Banda is the current President in Residence.

Mr Banda was recently in Ghana where he shared his experience with staff and students from the University of Ghana, the oldest in that country.

While there he also had an opportunity to meet former Ghanaian President, Jerry Rawlings.

  2. Mr. Banda (RB) was given an opportunity (Zambian President at that time)to provide sustainable solutions to the many challenges facing the youths in the continent and Zambia in particular, in my own opinion, he could have done much more than what he did to Mother Zambia. I beg to differ with most of you my fellow loving Zambians who are singing songs of praise for Mr. Banda. Thank you.

  3. My message of felicitation RB. You are really doing Zambia proud in your new role at Boston. Great leader that have walked this earth are people who leave a legacy behind. You are a great leader and you have left a legacy on this continent even after vacating your presidential position. I am really humbled by the manner in which you exited your office. You are one out of a hundred who leaves an office , who turnsup at the inauguration ceremony of the incoming President. Keep itup RB.

  5. RB is statesman, not that thug you put in charge. Criminals like Kapoko are getting scot free despite overwhelming evidence. Cry my beloved Country, Zambia. 4 steps forward 5 backwards.

  6. its always a long difficult journey but counts most is wat you do in your last days and thats wat people will count most. You had the power and u said time was up and accepted defeat for that for that i always say you are a great man. Even UKWA cant do wat you did for the love of mother Zambia. Go out there and shall your experiences though mistakes were there but its the way you crossed over the finish line.. VIVA VIONANI!!!!!

  8. RB where are you going? whom do you think you are? you are wanted in bartoseland for crimes against humanity.

    you go around poising as a statesman, yet your rulership was marred with pomp and and indespline.

    you killed people in bartoseland, mazabuka and mansa, and you expect me to respect you together with your dead so called vice president.

    oh please rupiah, you are not what some people think you are.

  15. I have always held my presido (RB) in high esteem. Bwinjimfumu wants to tell us about morals when they have none. When know someone who is morally upright and we need no one to tell us who to love and who to hate. We are grown up. Mmembe managed to convince the youths to believe that Satanic was better than RB and as a result they voted in numbers, but we read the person they were praising and their motive, to get close to state house. RB is the winner even Mulongoti knows this.

  27. True what they say, “YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU HAVE UNTIL ITS GONE”.
    RB, you did steal quite alright(well, everyone steals) but I think you were better than Ukwa who seems to still be “paying back” the cadres that were busy making noise for him to ascend to plot one…a lot of these un educated and un civilized cadres have been lumped in a number of Govt Ministries and Ukwa seems all too happy to continue on this path…God help us!

  29. If RB had won the last election, he would not have had this chance of rising to the level and status where he now is. He would have continued being verbally abused by the ungrateful zambians, just calling him nyama sonya and other nasty names. See how God works in mysterious ways……. This was actually a blessing in disguise for him
