Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba has pledged to work towards ensuring that Zambia continues to benefit from the cordial relations it enjoys with that country.

Mr. Mwamba said he was looking forward to working with other diplomats at the High Commission in Pretoria and the Zambian community in South Africa to fulfill the mandate given to him by President Edgar Lungu.

He was speaking on arrival at Oliver Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg last evening where he was met by Zambia’s Deputy High Commissioner to South Africa Joe Kaunda and other members of staff from the mission.

And Mr Kaunda said the Mission in South Africa had been waiting for Mr. Mwamba to continue on the trail of serving the nation.

This is according to a press statement made available to ZANIS in Lusaka today by High Commission of Zambia in South Africa Press Secretary Nicky Shabolyo.

Mr. Mwamba has taken over from Muyeba Chikonde who has now been transferred to the United Kingdom as High Commissioner.

And former republican President Mr. Rupiah Banda and wife, Mrs. Thandiwe Banda has congratulated Mr. Mwamba on his appointment as High Commissioner to South Africa which he said was one of Zambia’s most important partners. The former President who gave a brief account of his experience when he served in the diplomatic service during the reign of Dr. Kenneth Kaunda encouraged Mr. Mwamba to focus on attaining the goals that the country has set.

    • What is the fascination of Emmanuel Mwamba being Ambassador? Fact is Emmanuel is ill qualified for that job. His diploma in journalism is not enough. Unfortunately, the entire Zambian diplomatic coop is ill qualified. In Zambia we award cadres to sensitive positions. SA is one of the most important important foreign missions and one would have though a carrier diplomat would have been sent there. But then we have a man without a vision as president, so what do you expect?

  2. Rupiah Banda stole taxpayer’s money and Sata knew this. Now he is busy shaking hand with a member of PF. The PF think he is an angel. This means PF and MMD are both crooked. Lets remove them next year and institute proceedings against Rupiah. Nigeria is going ahead to prosecute Rupiah so when we have a new govt next year we will take up the baton

    • Rational Zambians need to demand for the restructuring of the ECZ. Everyone working for ECZ need security clearance and should not have any criminal or corruption background. Secondly the Foreign printers of the ballots also need security clearance and should have no criminal or corruption background. Lastly what is the rationale of printing ballot papers abroad is it more of a status or pride of foreign goods issue, the exercise is costly, pumping money in foreign economy, compromising the security of our country. Did Zambia print ballot papers overseas during the UNIP era, as much as there were some things that were wrong in the UNIP era, there were also some right things which should not be discarded. We should not be reinventing the wheel every time when we can easily improve on what…

    • We should not be reinventing the wheel every time when we can easily improve on what we had. How much has been pumped into foreign economies in relation to Ballot paper printing so far from 1991, rational Zambians need answers.

  6. The printing of ballot Papers should henceforth be done from Nigeria where there’s no nonsense, otherwise next year’s general elections will make people cry again.

  7. ECZ is full of corruption as well because they allow PF to buy votes in their presence and call that popularity using tax payers. YES that is a good point every one in ECZ should have their criminal record checked! I also agree that ballot papers should not be printed in South Africa but in Nigeria where they entertain no nosense
