We have had a fruitful meeting with the Chairman of the Board of Directors
of the Bank of China, Tian Guoli and his delegation after they paid a courtesy call to me at State House today.

Zambia cherishes the cordial and long standing relationship between #Zambia and #China. Let me commend the Chinese government for their immense investment in Zambia. The fruits of their investments are all there for all to see. This continued cooperation between the two states will boost investment and grow our economy.

My government cherishes such partnership which transcend political realms to dealing with economic cooperation. No nation is an Island and as I have continued to state, this is an era for Economic Diplomacy.

Fellow Citizens, today I took time to weigh the fish at my State Lodge Pond. Am grateful that the progress is good.

I ventured into #Fishfarming at the State Lodge Pond in order to demonstrate that fish farming is possible in Zambia and that it has great potential for capital. The market is also good because of the huge deficit that we are even forced to import fish as a Country.

I want to challenge every Zambian to consider venturing into Fish farming as it requires minimal capital, minimal effort and can be done anywhere in #Zambia. Our country is blessed with the weather pattern conducive not only for agriculture but also for Fish farming. Thus, we need to take advantage of venturing in other projects besides agriculture.

There was a time when Zambians had a challenge with Chicken raring and only a few individuals ventured in that field and succeeded. The situation is no longer the same today as almost every mother in our homes can now rare Chickens with minimum supervision and less effort.

I want our youths and women to venture into Fish farming and livestock farming in general. I will ensure my administration partners with local and foreign stakeholders to ensure our women and youth are not left behind in this endeavour.

Mainstreaming Zambian #women and #youth into such ventures as fish farming will bring in income at personal and household levels. It will also create jobs opportunities to satisfy the local and export market. It will equally add to the Country’s Gross Domestic Product (#GDP).

Fellow Citizens, I have come to appreciate social media platforms more because they allow me to communicate and get feedback in the shortest possible time.

I wish to inform you that, today, the leading social media channel, Facebook, verified this Facebook Page as my official page: His Excellency The President of The Republic Of Zambia. The verification badge is symbolized by the blue tick at the end of my name.

I therefore urge every citizen to constantly interact with me through my official channels. Please be mindful that the other unofficial pages will be automatically closed to avoid miscommunication.

As I Inspect the progress of the fish pond at State Lodge, Let me remind my fellow citizen that they can earn a living through fish farming, there is a lot of money in this industry.

Today, I could be alone showcasing my fish farm but tomorrow, many other Zambian will venture in this initiative and will equally benefit from it.

Good Afternoon Fellow Citizens,

In Psalm 122:1, the Bible says "I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord."

Today I joined fellow believers and attended mass at Catholic's Mary Immaculate Church in Lusaka.

The words of scripture in Psalm 33:12 says "
Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD, the people he chose for his inheritance."

The preamble of our Constitution pronounces who we are - a Christian Nation!

This defines how we co-exist and celebrate our diversity under the banner of One Zambia, One Nation. It is also our faith as a nation that causes us to bow down before God's throne of grace in good times and whenever we are faced with adversity and challenges.

Persuaded by this faith in God, I declared October 18, every year as the National day of prayer and fasting.

We're a Nation of Faith! We're a Christian Nation! Have a blessed Sunday!
