  1. Some so called awards are a joke!! Has the man brought Hyndai or Kia manufacturing plant to Zambia? Or even a small boat (pabwato) manufacturing plant to Z so the people of Luapula can reduce blindness by learning to fish on small boats? Zero! So katwushi what’s best here

    • Kekekekeke Emmanuel Mwamba may reward himself too. Ka Mukwita may hang himself for not receiving no award ever.
      Wilber Simussa, former Sata’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Respectable people.

    • These are ambassadors who are working silently behind the scenes like an ambassador should …not every week issuing silly self promoting statements like those two fooooools Anthony and Mwamba or that moron of woman in India who films a young student plead for her parents to send school fees.

    • Congratulations!!! That’s a prestigious award and I am sure we will see the fruit of your labor soon.

      Keep making the smart people of the Zambian Enterprise proud!!! Proud of you.

      Ala tweende webo, tweende Simuusa.

      Let’s roll … epo mpelele,


    • Bongo Bongo – Bringing such investors is not the job description of the Ambassador…this is why I detest middlemen like Mwamba and that silly boy Anthony in Germany. Do you even know what entails to have a car manufacturer…ZESCO can’t accommodate it.

  2. For sure , he was given an award for nothing but telling Koreans in lectures how nice Zambian and lungu are

    ……show us koreaian manufacturing in zambia he has brought

    • In Zambia they assume an Ambassador is a loud mouthed publicity seeking car salesman like Mwamba or Anthony in Germany.

  3. Whichever way one looks at it, news that paints Zambia in a positive way is good. Let’s learn to support each other. I say, Congratulations Ambassador. May this give you more credibility as you continue to put Zambia’s interests out there in Korea.

  4. To all you haters, what would have been your comments if the news about the Zambian ambassador was in the negative?? Graduate from the PULL HIM DOWN MENTALITY. If you want to learn more about why he has been honoured, do some more research instead of rushing to exhibit your ignorance

  5. Any good vibe about Zambia is much more welcome. Congratulations ambassador for an award well deserved. Much congrats to your team for the good job they are doing. Respect.
