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.
