Zambian President Hakainde Hichilema

Following public outcry in the Zambia and the region, the Zambian Government has finally spoken on reports suggesting that the US is setting up a military base in that country.

The Zambian Government maintains that what is being established is not a military base, but security office for cooperation.

Apparently, the American Embassy in Lusaka has also spoken saying it is not planning a military base in the country.
