President Michael Sata has called on Zambians living in Botswana to return home and help develop the country. President Sata said that if Zambians do not return to work and develop the country, other foreign nationals will be employed to help develop the country because the process is not going to wait for anyone.
He said Zambia has educated a lot of her people who have left the country to work and develop other countries instead of their own. ZANIS reports that the President was speaking last evening in Gaborone, Botswana when he met Zambians living in Botswana.
He said Zambia had trained a lot of doctors, nurses, teachers and other professionals who, unfortunately, had not contributed to the welfare of their own country. President Sata urged the Zambians to return home and contribute towards the development of the country adding that Zambia needed all the ideas it could get in order to enhance development.
And Foreign Affairs Minister Given Lubinda said it was important for Zambian living in the Diaspora to keep abreast with the happenings in Zambia. Mr. Lubinda said when Zambians are well informed of the happening back home they will be able to meaningfully contribute towards the development of the country.
He implored the Zambian people in Botswana to contribute to the welfare of their country.
