Failure by PF Government to pay allowances to diplomats is shameful and embarrassing to Zambia

Economy Failure by PF Government to pay allowances to diplomats is shameful...

All People’s Congress Leader Nason Msoni says the reported failure by the Zambian government to pay allowances to envoys representing the country abroad makes sad reading.

Mr Msoni says what is even perturbing behaviour is that this same government is busy pushing for the reintroduction of Deputy Ministers another super structure requiring resources through the infamous bill 10 and yet it is plainly failing to meet its subsisting financial obligations to those serving the Country in foreign missions.

He said the failure to pay allowances to diplomats is absolutely shameful and extremely embarrassing to the country.

Mr Msoni said this behaviour absolutely stinks and in a way is putting Zambia’s envoys in an awkward and vulnerable position being in foreign Countries thereby rendering them destitute.

“It speaks for itself that this government has miserably failed to manage and ran state affairs looking at the catalogue of failures”, he added.

Mr Msoni has observed that at no time has any previous Zambian government failed to support and supplement the effort of diplomats.

He has denounced this conduct in the strongest term and demand that the envoys be paid all their outstanding allowances in line with their terms and conditions of service.

Mr Msoni said the payment of allowances should not be viewed as a privilege but it is an entitlement and a necessity for them to meet their social and economic obligations saying Zambia should not have destitute diplomats manning foreign missions abroad.

  2. No diplomat has complained and last time I checked you are not a bloody diplomat. So where are you getting this information. I think we need stringent laws to deal with fake news

  3. Msoni is right, Kainyo Zulu is only s silly ignorant former State House whiskey distillery lab technician who is ignorant about diplomats. Besides, 99 % of them are either Bemba or Nyanja, let them sell bakoswe, bakolwe and mukula trees wherever they are, kunya nomba!

  5. The President we have in Zambia today, has NEVER managed or run a “successful” establishment / venture, or business that ever thrived.
    Evident is ba [email protected] was an attorney / practicing Lawyer & all his peers /contemporaries were living in nice neighborhoods, running successful Law firms, BUT AIK0NA BA J0N.4, he was busy stealing from a vulnerable Widow, drinking Kachasu, & living in a Chimunzi – Komboni.
    He also confessed to being visionless, & hence his priorities are back to front, buying an expensive Jet when retirees have not been paid.
    WHY ARE WE NOW SURPRISED AT THE NATION FAILING TO THRIVE, BEING IN REVERSE GEAR, WHILST CADRES & P.F OFFICIALS ARE HELPING THEMSELVES TO TAXPAYERS CASH, GETTING WEALTHY & BOASTING ABOUT IT, AS CIVIL SERVANTS REMAIN UNPAID?
    Lastly #P.F…

  9. I will ask this query again… Lets imagine for a minute that you are an employer about to interview some candidates for a job. Remove all the titles of president or opposition leader with 6 people vying for a job. Who would you employ to improve your organisation based on their background… Lets be honest… Candidates are Chishimba Kambwili, Nevers Mumba, Hakainde Hachilema, Harry Kalaba, Alex Mulyokela, Edgar Lungu
    They would be tested on the following; Honesty and integrity, Confidence, Inspire Others, Commitment and Passion, Good Communicator.
    Decision Making Capabilities, Accountability…

    Here would be my Shortlist based on ability– Whats yours?? ECL has no evidence of managing even a kantemba and you expect him to manage a country?
    1. Hakainde Hachilema
    2.Nevers Mumba

  11. It’s u Nason Msoni who feels embarrassed. To the PF govt and Lubinda Habazoka, there’s nothing to be embarrassed about here.

  12. If there are any diplomats struggling in London, please come to my house in Greenwich, South London, I will be happy to offer you Nshima.

  13. diplomats have free housing with nothing to do. Washington DC diplomats will be the first to tell you that there’s no work, they just sit around browing the internet. Why should they get paid? What is the country representing abroad anyway?
