President Edgar Lungu has expressed concern at the resistance exhibited by some Zambian diplomats in missions abroad when recalled home by Government.
The President has said when one’s time to serve in missions abroad has ended, it is important to willingly accept to return home without any resistance because home is home.
The President says he found it stranger that some diplomats would resist returning home when their tour of duty had ended and emphasised that this did not mean that it was the end, because there was a possibility of one being redeployed.
The President said this today at State House when he swore-in Wylbur Chisiya Simuusa as Zambia’s Ambassador to the Republic of Korea and Felix Nicholas Mfula as Zambia’s High Commissioner to Canada.
Swearing in the two, the President said he was confident that they are suitable for the positions and expected them to serve to the expectations of the Zambian people.
The President said he did not expect from the two anything short of quality performance.
