Vice-President Mutale Nalumango
Several African presidents have arrived in New York for the UN General Assembly. Tanzania's Samia Suluhu, Zambia's Hakainde Hichilema, Ghana's Nana Akufo-Addo, Botswana's Mokgweetsi Masisi and Nigeria's Muhammadu Buhari have so far confirmed they will be attending. President Samia and President Hakainde are making their debut. Mr Hakainde was scheduled to have a meeting with President Joe Biden but it will now be held with Vice-President Khamala Harris, according to the Lusaka Times newspaper. The change of schedule came days after Zambia's Vice-President Mutale Nalumango told parliament that the country would not entertain gay rights, the newspaper reports. Most heads of states will join virtually because of coronavirus.
