PRESIDENT Rupiah Banda is tomorrow expected to leave for Libya on business that is yet to be disclosed by State House.

According to well-placed government sources, President Banda will proceed to Italy after his visit to Libya. The President was in Italy recently on his way to the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York.

And first lady Thandiwe Banda who travelled to Tanzania after her recent visit to Swaziland is expected to join the President in Libya.
Asked to confirm President Banda's trips to Libya and Italy, State House special assistant to the President for press and public relations Dickson Jere nodded.

Asked what the President's mission on these two trips was, Jere responded: “I will issue a statement as I do every time.”
And President Banda on Thursday met Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi's special envoy Mokhatar Elgans for about 20 minutes in a room within the control tower building at Solwezi airport after his arrival.
