After meeting mass killers and dictators such as Paul Kagame, Yoweri Museveni, Zambian dictator Edgar Lungu will finally meet a leader from a democratic country.
The president of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, will arrive in Zambia tomorrow for a 3-day state visit. He will attend the International Trade Fair in Ndola on 28 June, 2017. Being visited by presidents from other countries in itself is considered a huge achievements by the current regime.
The visit by president Nana Addo will certainly be used to try to cleanse the dictatorship credentials Lungu has rightly earned. President Addo most likely does know that his visit will be used to launder Lungu and make him look like a person worth visiting by credible leaders.
Of late, Lungu has been busy meeting senior dictators such as Faure Gnassingbé of Togo, Rajaonarimam Pianina of Madagascar, Paul Kagame of Rwanda, Yoweri Museveni of Uganda and his mentor Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe.
In January, Edgar Lungu was in Ghana for the inauguration of President Akufo-Addo where he said that Ghana’s democracy is exemplary. Lungu noted that Ghana was a testament that democracy in Africa was alive and was a well-entrenched system of governance for African countries to embrace.
Lungu said that Ghana had demonstrated to the world that democracy in Africa was an inherent way of life worth emulating by other African countries. But just after returning to Zambia, Lungu did the opposite of what Ghanaians are doing for them to be good examples for Africa. Since then, Zambia has been declared a dictatorship, a bad example to other African countries. So Lungu the dictator will be meeting Addo the democrat, what a contrast!
