President Edgar Lungu has commissioned the multi-million dollar Lusaka City Roads De-congestion Project which is being funded with the help of India. The project is set to be one of President Edgar Lungu’s legacy as the country’s 6th leader. It is a historic event underway in Lusaka’s Makeni area which hosts the ground breaking ceremony. The project will include the construction of the Lusaka City roads project which will result in fly over bridges across the capital city. President Lungu is joined by his Indian counterpart President Shri Ram Nath Kovind who has been on a state visit. “India is a shining example of the possibilities for developing countries to transform their economies and the lives of their people,” the head of state says. “India’s emphasis on increasing manufacturing and improving the level and accessibility to education, particularly amongst women, has yielded immense benefits for its people. I wish to state, your excellency that Zambia is following your example in that regard.” Pres. Lungu expressed delight that Zambia and India have signed several key agreements which pertain to improving economic cooperation between the two countries. “It is my firm belief that we in the global south possess the necessary tools and materials to become global leaders in the production of sustainable energy. “In this pursuit, your excellency, I am guided by the immortal words of one of India’s greatest sons, Mahatma Gandhi, who once stated that: “The future depends on what we do today.â€,” he says.
