National Democratic Congress Consultant Chishimba Kambwili has alleged that Zambian diplomats have gone for three months without pay.

Mr. Kambwili says the treasury is in red, hence the failure by Government to pay diplomats.

He said it makes no logic to maintain a bloated diplomatic service when the country has no money to carter for officers in foreign missions.

Mr. Kambwili has described the none payment of salaries as the worst form of cruelty.

He observes that the best the government can do is to recall diplomats so as not to subject them to embarrassment.

Mr. Kambwili disclosed this in Lusaka today.

And Mr. Kambwili has urged Government to address the load shedding the country is experiencing.

He has bemoaned that the persistent power rationing is affecting trade and commerce.

Mr. Kambwili wondered what has happened to the new projects that Government started in 2015 meant to cushion the energy challenges.

Meanwhile, Mr. Kambwili has asked President Edgar Lungu to respect the findings of the Financial Intelligence Center which has revealed high levels of corruption.

The NDC leader says sentiments by President Lungu that the findings of the FIC are speculative are regrettable adding that President Lungu is afraid to act on the findings of the FIC report because he is one of the culprits mentioned in the trends report.

Mr. Kambwili has called for the immediate arrest of all those mentioned in the latest FIC dossier.

  1. I don’t think diplomats need help more than cattle farmers in Southern province whose animals are being slaughtered by PF government and sold away to Somalian criminals to raise money.


    • CK. Diplomats can not be called back. That is not how the international big picture works. What sort of president will you be if you recalled all diplomats?
      Do not speak of the obvious. You were in government when we had the worst load shedding. What do you expect the government to do? Pump water into the dam?? That’s low thinking.


  2. oh;what an embarrassment to government but is it the responsibility of government to pay a diplomat ?


  3. Let me here those two foooools Anthony and Mwamba deny these allegations ….yet this same govt wants to bring back deputy ministers to come and campaign for the lazy bum using State resources.


  4. You voted for him now pay the price, Zambian people are easy to convince all you have to do is buy them a Chitenge material and and an XXXL T-shirt with Lungu’s portrait on it they will dance and vote for PF.


  5. As for the diplomats most of us are NOT worried,the majority of them are hopeless PF CADRES,friends and relatives of influential politicians. Please close some missions and live within means,if developed countries can scale down on their diplomatic missions,who are you PF to live beyond our nation’s means and needs!!


  6. Like father frank Bwalya ?

    What is he doing in Australia , an important country ?

    Frank is on permanent holiday


  7. The majority of the diplomats are friends and relatives of ministers in the Kongola twibe party.They are there not out of merit but because their brothers and sisters hold positions in the Kongola twibe party .


  8. The diplomatic cops is saturated with Sata’s relatives and those of PF ministers etc, let them starve!
