  1. what do african diplomats do? we only hear about them when they are present their credentials and when bidding farewell. have seen diplomats from US, UK, Japan and Scadnavian countries visiting community projects and engange other stakeholders in the country.

  2. Excellent my wise boss. Pan africanism is important and even more important than our relationships with non African states. In fact I would rather allow a Nigerian or any other African into our borders before letting in an evil diasporan who was born in Zambia but has now lost his citizenship.
