One Response to South African trade and investment delegation arrives in Lusaka

  1. South Africans do not need to be accompanied by anybody to come to Zambia. It’s a waste of time and money. They know the country better than Emmanuel Mwamba. They have think tanks that carry out cutting-edge research on the Zambian economy. I just laugh when I see this Mwamba guy pretending to be relevant.
