President Edgar Lungu has called for an end to reckless spending in the foreign mission.

President Lungu said he was studying the Auditor General’s report and has noticed a lot of reckless expenditure in the foreign mission.

President Lungu said this during the swearing in ceremony of Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba and Humphrey Kabanda who is Ambassador to France at State House today.

President Lungu urged the envoys to be impeccable in their conduct as they are the mirror of Zambia to the international community.

And Zambia’s envoy to France Humphrey Kabanda thanked President Lungu for appointing him ambassador to France.

Mr Kabanda said it was his duty to ensure that Zambia has more investment from France.

He said France is an influential country with the largest economies in the world.

And Zambia High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba said the issue of misappropriation of resources in the foreign mission alluded to by President Lungu was unacceptable and requires urgent attention.

Mr Mwamba said the expenditure in the foreign mission should be done according to the constitution and the mission requirements.

He explained that most a time abuse of resources comes as a result of not following financial regulations and procedures.

Mr Mwamba said it was his duty to ensure that Zambia continues to enjoy the good business relationships with South Africa.

He said his mission to South Africa is to see more investment to Zambia so that more jobs can be created especially for young people who should be given opportunities for school, trade and transfer of skills.

  1. He should have dropped Kambwili at the same function. He should have dropped him for accepting an interview with the Post on a matter likely to bring division to the party.

    Congratulations Emannuel. You worked hard and you deserve it.

    • Why did it take so long to appoint Mwamba? If what ZWD ( I am not saying that I support them) was saying about SA initially rejecting his appointing was true, then we have problems as a country.

    • So Mwamba has refused to go to Malaysia and Lungu has tolerated that by giving him the position of his choice? Ba Lungu you are weak and you can be manipulated pooh!!!

    • Congratulations to the newly elected PF BANDITS, Emmanuel Mwamba & Humphrey Chibanda.

      Finally BANDIT Emmanuel has accepted the high commissioner job after bootlegging for a PS portfolio.

      I would like to advance my precautions to Mwamba, he needs to be very careful as Xenophobia in South Africa is real.

      The bandits are smiling, anyway the PF is broke, all we see is swearing in anticipations whilst the economy & kwacha have continued to plummet.

      The Skeleton Key
      ~206~

    • hmm Ba Manwele, congrats ..but for us hardcore PF we are only shedding tears at the news of Dora joining our ranks..if this continues I 2020vision along with others will have no choice but to join UNIP… the only party that can bring real development to Zambia after PF is UNIP and we will be making the numbers in 2027.

    • Mama Inonge is looking great, I’m always happy to see my dear mother..God bless this dear woman.

      Nomba ni EL2016

    • Don’t be so full of hate for people. What has CK done to yu that yu should always advocate for his removal. CK is doing so much for Roan and they love him and he was right to be frank, its better than to haber bad feelings

    • The Auditor General in Zambia is Compromised. For audit queries in which she has an interest or those in power have an interest, such queries will not reach the Public Accounts Committee. In the Auditor General’s Report for 2013, she dropped off in unexplained circumstances the corrupt recruitment of the Chief Operating Officer. We the unemployed graduates from CBU and UNZA challenge her and the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee to explain in what circumstances this query was dropped. It appears only those with political connections are getting jobs even when they are not competent for those jobs. We will follow this matter to its logical conclusion

    • But who is this Chibanda/Kabanda, is he a Some to the late seasoned politician Cosmas Chibanda? Tupeniko data abamwishibe please

    • But who is this Chibanda/Kabanda guy, is he a son to the late seasoned politician Cosmas Chibanda? Tupeniko data abamwishibe please

    • Why is it that for appointments in Zambia all we are given are names of the appointees? We are not told anything about their qualifications, experience and their competences! As taxpayers we need this information. We need to be told what competences these people being appointed are bringing on the table. Names only are not enough!

    • Mr President, this is worrying, how did ZWD know that Mwamba wanted SA and not Malaysia? Could it be true that Mwamba is calling the shorts? Really…..

  2. Why did it take so long? And when is GBM getting challenged for the Kasama seat? Is this an indication that the Secret Service have info that Mr. Mwamba cannot win against GBM?

  3. wasn’t Mwamba sworn in as ambassador to Malaysia or some Asian country? so the ZWD were right in saying EL went to speak on his behalf to Zuma because of some misdemeanor he committed some time back?

  4. So he refused to go to Malaysia? So some people have power of influence. If true this may show that President Lungu has weaknesses, which if not careful will be used to his downfall, by these same Mwambas that he is trying to please

  5. Indiscipline in the foreign service will only end when you stop appointing your family members, friends and well known crooks. Don’t pretend that you do not known why Zambian embassies are untouchable.

  6. We are treding on very soft grounds. We have seen a lot of one tribe being sent on missions abroard and how about other tribes. Are you sure you are going to run the country like this where others just remain passengers in their own country. God is a gracious God and it will only be one day when things will change. Let us see other tribes sent out to run missions outside the country. Isnt this what we are saying is localised XENOPHOBIA. Lungu can do better than this.

    • Tribalist Tribalis give us break and concentrate on your tribal Party UPND where you eat,sleep,talk and enjoy tribalism. Ask HH to appoint you in one of his companies please.

    • Dearest Lwengelele, numbers never lie. It is all written on the wall, it has nothing to do with any party. Only that it is fact some group is enjoying the appointment over the others, so is the development landscape.

  7. Congrats Bambata, and good luck. See you in France soon. You deserve it mwandi boyi, you work hard.

  8. President Lungu said “he was studying the Auditor General’s report and has noticed a lot of reckless expenditure in the foreign mission.”

    And we wonder why misappropriation and recklessness is the order of the day in govt dept and institutions…what is Edgar Lazy studying in the Auditor General’s Report? Is he going to write a thesis on Misappropriation on GRZ funds at the end of his study?…truly laughable; Mr Lazy if there is misappropriation such matters should be forwarded to ACC immediately that report is released.
    As for appointments its the usual rubbish sending cadres abroad some who are already implicated in corruption ….yet you expect such people to behave in an “impeccable” manner.

  9. Lungu is a very weak president indeed! Someone refusing an appointment and telling the head of state what he wants and the president listens and follows the order! Ati ifintu ni Lungu! No wonder all the riff raffs and criminals jumped on the band wagon supporting his candidature, they know what an idi0t they want in state house!

  10. Lungu is a very weak president indeed! Someone refusing an appointment and telling the head of state what he wants and the president listens and follows the order! Ati ifintu ni Lungu! No wonder all the riff raffs and criminals jumped on the band wagon supporting his candidature, they know what an idi0t they want in state house

  11. …So, it is true that Mwamba threatened Lungu with expose’ if he did not send him to RSA unliuke Malysia.

    That is why people are saying that Lungu is a very weak president…

    RB is calling the shots. Cornelius Mweetwa told you and you refused.

    Even the Post today have confirmed that RB is calling the Shots. Read editorial comments.

    • We told you all this before the elections BUT in Zambia everyone learns hard way like when they believed Sata was fit and working in State House..by the way you forgot to include that he is a coward and very lazy.

  12. Mwamba is going to sort out 2016 elections which will be pretend in SA.Any way God has a way of sorting out these tribalists.all missions abroad it either Mulishani mukwai or Mulibwanji.This local xenophobia for Mulibuti or muchwani or ngachili mwane or munayoyo mwene is sad in Zambia.

  13. @jay jay! I agree with you. This man Lungu is not known to work hard! He wants the easy way out all the time and can’t stand his ground and illiterate cadres say its humility! No its not humility, its cowardice. He is a coward!

  14. what kind of a President who can’t show how the power he has ,this mwamba refused to go to China ,mwamba refused to go to Malaysia but his request is command to President. kansi these ZWD were right then .koma tilimumabvuto,nipulezideti wabwanji kansi uyu mweo .HH Zambia forward.

  15. Ba Mwamba we like u. U r EL’s true friend. Welcome to Pretoria. You will find us. We will prepare you a welcome party.

  16. Who poisoned Chiluba?Who was the last person to be with Chiluba before he was found dead?Pliz,just asking.

  17. Crooks who were retired in National Interest (meaning they were dangerous to society) are sent on foreign missions. Haa!!!!!!!! Secondly many sent are from one or two ethinic groups. Even the slogan “One Zambia One Nation” is meaningless. Let it be “One Zambia One Nation when it comes to appointments. Lungu sit up or you go in history for starting Xenophobia in this country. The marginalised , discriminated and tramatised rise and fight for youR freedom.

  18. The point raised on the need for publication of CVs for people appointed to public office is valid. We tax payers deserve to know who we are employing. After all the same politicians kneel before us when “begging” for our votes. BUT the media can play a role here since our government does not consider us worthy to be given that information.

    • You should have asked for Lungu’s CV before your voted for him. its full of ‘humble”, “humility” “soft” etc. Lungu has achieved nothing in Law, and he even store money from the clients and yet you voted for him. So why now do you need CVs for these appointees, what difference will it make? Even a form 2 can be president or minister in Zambia. Its a rotten country

    • Humphrey Chibanda is a graduate of the University of Zambia and has a Masters from a University in West Africa. He has served at Foreign Affairs for a while once as special assistant to Minister Mwansa, before being posted to Malaysia. He then returned under MCS first as deputy chief of Protocol and later de facto Chief of Protocol….He also has diplomatic training, speaks French and Malay. He is married with children.

  19. masipa yamina….! all UPND supporters including your fimo fimo,dont u know that emma is a true friend to the president,he has a right to refuse were not to go

  20. Was HH there!careful Edgar my village mate,these pipo cant be trusted.Continue trusting Dora and Rupiah.How was it that immediately Chiluba died,Mwamba and Chungu became part of Sata’s innercircle.Just thinking.
