Kagame To Visit Zambia This Week

Paul KagameThree foreign Heads of State will be in Zambia for the Africa Development summit to be held in Lusaka starting today.

Kenya’s Uhuru Kenyatta, Rwanda’s Paul Kagame and Chad’s Idriss Derby will join other leaders that will have some vice presidents join the fray.

Zambia will be hosting the Africa Development Summit to maybe take off some of the political tension dominating the media and community discourse.

The African Development Bank (AfDB) and the Government of Zambia signed an aide-memoire on modalities for the organization of the Bank’s 2016 Annual Meetings scheduled to take place in Lusaka from May 23-27, 2016.

The Annual Meetings is taking place at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre in Lusaka on the theme, “Energy and Climate Change,” drawing on one of the Bank’s “High 5” priority programme to “Light up and Power Africa”. The theme further reflects the Bank’s New Deal on Energy and the key resolutions from the recent UN climate talks (COP21) on global warming.

The annual meeting is the Bank’s flagship event which brings together some 5,000 delegates and participants, usually finance, economy and trade ministers, development partners, representatives of international organizations, academia, civil society and the media, among others. They largely come from the Bank’s 54 regional (African) member countries and 26 non-regional member countries.
