Home Affairs Minister Hon. Stephen Kampyongo has said that it is the duty of Zambian diplomats to clarify misrepresentations against the country on social media and other platforms.

Speaking when he addressed diplomatic staff at the Embassy of the Republic of Zambia in Ethiopia, Mr. Kampyongo said it was unfortunate that some people were using social media to tarnish the image of government to the outside world.

He gave an example of reports that falsely suggest that Zambia has become ungovernable and was sliding into a debt trap, adding that diplomats must ensure that such misconceptions are clarified.

Mr. Kampyongo also warned diplomats against engaging in partisan politics saying diplomats could only show their partisan stance when voting as this was the right of every Zambian.

And the Minister said Government is doing everything possible to see to it that it eases on the changes that Zambians are faced with that include load shedding which he attributed to effects of climate change.

He also said Government had put in place mechanisms that would see it repay its debt obligation as opposed to social media reports that it had failed to do so.

Mr. Kampyongo said President Lungu had an ambitious development agenda that had resulted into the construction of roads, schools and hospitals among others.

He urged the diplomats to be loyal to President Edgar Lungu and the government of the day.

And Zambia Embassy Charge’d’Affaires Mrs. Nadine Chabwe thanked the Minister for finding time to address the diplomats on pertinent issues that affect the country.

The Minister was in Addis Ababa to attend the Minister Session of the 3rd Technical Committee Meeting on Migration , Refugees and Internally Displaced People.

    • These days it’s mostly party cadres who are journalists, or those cadres who heavily sponsored and funded PF have had their children who can speak English sent into diplomatic as payment. Look at the Kapijipanga’s and other similar families.

  1. Yea right. That is like saying Christians must not read other religious books. Let them discharge their duties as diplomats but hang on to their deeply held positions in terms of what they really follow. After all, within the same party you have extreme, moderate, and centrist views. So which is which now? Elo wamene uyu should be at HOME dealing with HOME affairs? Anali kucita cani kunja?

  2. I am back after taking a long break from this silly website. During my time off I have come to learn that lungu finally held a conference. Unfortunately the media were told what questions to ask before hand so that lungu could prepare answers. Very sad. Zambia is a laughing stock c

  3. Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk thats the problem u awez want to be loyal to the President instead of our Country and its people. Who is bigger an individual or the Country? Thats where our problems begin coz u tend to exalt a human being. Is it about doing good for an individual(President) or doing good for the whole Country? Shame indeed.
