President Rupiah Banda
His Excellency, Mr. Rupiah Banda, President of the Republic of Zambia, will on Monday (today) leave for Botswana for a two-day official visit at the invitation of His Excellency, Lieutenant-General Seretse Khama Ian Khama, President of the Republic of Botswana.

The President is expected to arrive in Gaborone on Monday afternoon and he will later in the evening be hosted for dinner by his counterpart. On Tuesday, President Banda will officially open the Serowe Institute of Health Sciences in Serowe, Botswana.

President Banda will be accompanied to Botswana by Health Minister Hon. Kapembwa Simbao, MP, Foreign Affairs Permanent Secretary Lucy Mungomba and other senior Government Officials.

President Khama Ian Khama invited President Banda for a two-day official in July when the Botswana leader came to officially open the Zambia International Trade Fair in Ndola. This will be the first time President Banda will be visiting the neighboring Botswana since he became President of Zambia in 2008.

The President and his delegation will return on Tuesday.
