President Edgar Lungu confers with Zambian High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba at Chilenje House the National monument, the House Kaunda use to stay shortly before the two Presidents tours House in Chilenje

Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba has been transferred to Addis Ababa Ethiopia.

Mwamba is expected to take the post as Zambia’s ambassador to Ethiopia as well as Permanent Representaive to the African Union.

Sources close to the process stated that Mwamba will be taking over from veteran diplomat, Ambassador Susan Sikaneta who has been retired.

Mwamba was posted to South Africa and prides himself of many achievements including the establishment of the Zambia-South Business Forum and the signing the Bi-National Commission between the two states.

Mwamba’s replacement has not yet been announced.

Last week Mwamba was reported in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia attending the 32nd Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union Summit.

The Zambia Association in South Africa(ZASA) that is organising Mwamba’s farewell party, said they were informed informally about Mwamba’s movement in December 2018.

But they said they were now organising a farewell party as they were aware that processes for Mwamba’s eventual movement were almost complete.

ZASA President, Ferdinand Simanya said that the High Commissioner was the Patron of the association and the executive were organising the farewell party because of the notable achievements and milestones the organisation made under his leadership.

He said Zambians felt were represented and welcomed Mwamba’s open-door policy at the Embassy.

    • That irritating squicky voice with R’s replaced with L’s will NOT be missed on SABC.
      H.E. Chikonde was a true diplomat, not this rigging cadre who thinks he’ll be the next Zambian president.

    • The funny thing with the crook Mwamba is he can make a better Cabinet Minister than whats currently in Lungu’s cabinet he is even smarter than Lazy Lungu but no President can trust him hence the reason Lazy Lungu keeps him in the camp …not in the tent. Its like having a long python that is always measuring you looking for weakness.

    • A night school certificate in journalism is way below the requirements for such a job. That is Emmanuel’s qualification but this does not worry Edgar because Freedom Sikazwe has no 12 certificate either, nor do his other aides specifically Kaisar Zulu

    • @Obatala 1.4. It’s actually the so called educated people that have no clue on what they are doing. They have failed Zambia lamentably and are corrupt to the core. Like they say formal education is not a measure of intelligence.

    • Really laughable…I wonder what is going to happen to his fancy High Commission website..I fear he will get more contacts at AU and will be reshuffled soon…I mean even Foreign Minister feels uncomfortable with him. The crook Mwamba is a natural deal broker…ideal as Minister of Foreign Affairs but he can outshine Lazy Lungu in every department including corruption.

    • What exactly are Zambia’s interests in South Africa?

      Our foreign representatives are like the rest of the lazy shirtless bureaucrats; they don’t have a frame for their performance appraisals. Anything and nothing are equally acceptable as long as one is towing a political line.

  4. He was punishing UPND’s free masonry office in SOUTH AFRICA.There was nothing which UPND was discussing without reaching the ear of the president.No wonder UPND cadres are so glad to hear that Mwamba’s transfer has commenced.
