President Masisi of Botswana Expected in Zambia

President Mokgweetsi Masisi of Botswana is set to embark on a pivotal working visit to Zambia, strengthening the longstanding relations between the two nations. 

Scheduled from March 26th to 27th, President Masisi’s visit comes in response to an earlier visit by President Hakainde Hichilema of Zambia to Botswana in January 2024.

According to a statement released by Hon. Mulambo Haimbe, SC, Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, President Masisi’s agenda includes official talks with President Hichilema in Livingstone, focusing on crucial bilateral, regional, and international matters of mutual interest.

A highlight of the visit will be the signing of Memoranda of Understanding (MoUs) between Zambia and Botswana across various sectors. These agreements aim to bolster collaboration and mutual growth, solidifying the foundation for a fruitful partnership.

President Masisi is also slated to tour Mukuni Big 5, a renowned wildlife conservation reserve in Mukuni Village, showcasing Zambia’s rich natural heritage. This visit underscores Botswana’s commitment to furthering cooperation with Zambia, particularly in sectors such as agriculture, trade, and tourism.

Botswana remains a strategic ally for Zambia, with shared values and a common history anchoring their relationship. President Hichilema’s Economic Transformation Agenda, emphasizing regional cooperation and infrastructure development, aligns seamlessly with the objectives of President Masisi’s visit.

The upcoming engagements aim to invigorate existing ties and explore new avenues for cooperation, reaffirming both nations’ commitment to promoting development and prosperity.

President Masisi is expected to depart immediately after his engagements, marking the conclusion of his impactful working visit to Zambia.
