I was happy to attend President Paul Kagame inauguration ceremony in Kigali, Rwanda.

My Government remains keen to enhance cooperation between #Zambia and #Rwanda in key sectors of the two countries’ #economies for their mutual benefit of our people.

God bless you.

‪I swore in Ministry of #Health Spokesperson, Mr. Kennedy Malama, as Permanent Secretary for administration at the Ministry with a clarion call to him to prioritise the procurement of medicine to save lives.‬
‪I am confident that Dr. Malama is suitable for the job and would work to the expectations of the #Zambian people. ‬

‪I urge you to work within your job description and ensuring that you delegate and supervise your subordinates, as “delegating without supervision is a recipe for failure.”‬

‪I wish you God’s blessings as you take up this new appointment.‬

Good morning fellow Zambians,
I was moved to learn of "The First Lady for a Day Mentorship Programme" which my wife has initiated to mentor our children and help brighten their future.

As we continue working hard to strengthen #Zambia's economy and create opportunities for everyone, we should constantly mentor our children to positively change the way they think, act and present themselves to cope up with the present and future opportunities.

Let us brighten their future today!

I was pleased to launch the HIV testing, Counselling and Treatment day (HTCT) under the theme :“Test and Treat: Towards Ending AIDS”.

The HIV and AIDS scourge has continued to pose one of the biggest threats to our country’s development. Since the first case of #HIV was confirmed in #Zambia in 1984, about 1 million Zambians, our brothers and sisters, have died mainly those in the productive age while 1.2 million are living with HIV.

My government has embarked on a transformative shift from emphasizing HIV Voluntary Counselling and Testing to Compulsory HIV Testing and Treatment.

I understand that some may urgue that this is contrary to human rights and the right to privacy but we must understand that no one has the right to take away his own life therefore we will make sure we protect life in #Zambia and across the boarder.

Let’s not wait for people to fall sick before they can start life-saving treatment. Let’s take intergrated #health services including HIV testing and treatment to the communities.

I am delighted that Ministry of Health is prioritising community health and I urge all stakeholders including members of the public to support this cause.

For us to make sustainable progress against HIV and AIDS, we need to move away from rhetoric and begin taking collective affirmative action at individual, family, community, institutional and country levels. This is what will enable us attain an #AIDS free Zambia and contribute significantly to a healthy and productive population we so strongly desire.

I look forward to a Zambia where all her people know their HIV status and are taking appropriate steps to protect their health and that of their families and fellow Zambians.

To our development partners and stakeholders thank you for your generous material and financial support towards the HIV response in Zambia.

Together we can end aids by the year 2030.
