Zambia, Congo in border dispute

The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) has approached President Mnangagwa to mediate in its long-standing border dispute with Zambia in his capacity as chairman of the Sadc Organ on Politics, Defence and Security Cooperation.

DRC and Zambia have had misunderstandings over one part of their common 1 600km border, the latest arising from a late 1980s attempt to demarcate the frontier with beacons.

Zimbabwe was mandated by Sadc to ensure maintenance of peace, security and rule of law within the region, according to the Herald newspaper of Zimbabwe.

DRC special envoy Marie Nzeza yesterday met President Mnangagwa at State House to brief him on the situation.

Zimbabwe’ Defence and War Veterans Affairs Minister Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri, Foreign Affairs and International Trade Minister Sibusiso Moyo, Commander Defence Forces Phillip Valerio Sibanda and other senior Government officials attended the meeting.

    The story is not complete. Which part of Zambia are the Congolese asking for. Africans have no shame. Congo DR is a huge country which the Government there is failing to administer and even develop. Now what makes them think that if they have more territories of Zambia they will be better off.

      Crazy business.
      DRC is too huge as a country to be properly governed and so far they have failed to provide leadership and anarchy reigns supreme, do they think more territory would make things easier for them? Crazy business kkkk

    It is the Gold discovery. Congo must not bring that nonsense into Zambia or face serious sanctions.
    Africans are bewitched!
    There is an invisible influencer out there who should be quickly identified and dealt with forthwith.

Those of you who don’t know history, it is alleged the Queen of Belgium who was a cousin to Queen of England had a Birthday & the Queen of England promised to give a present to her cousin. Guess the present? Present day Congo. How unfair the Queen was to cut up Zambia like that as a Birthday Present!!! OMG!!!
