Economy UK High Commissioner to Zambia praises UPND 2022 National Budget

United Kingdom (UK) High Commissioner to Zambia Nicholas Woolley has hailed the United Party for National Development (UPND) government for what he terms as satisfying 2022 National budget.

Mr Nickolas says the budget has clearly reflected the UPND manifesto as promised during the 2021 general election.

The High Commissioner was speaking when he paid a courtesy call on Republican Vice President WK Mutale Nalumango at her office in Lusaka today.

And the Vice President expressed gratitude to the UK for several aid that has been rendered to Zambia in an ongoing bilateral cooperation between the two commonwealth countries, adding that the new administration is willing to strengthen the relationship even further for the benefit of the general citizenry.

And British Deputy High Commissioner to Zambia, Will Eckersley emphasized on the need by the Zambian government to prepare for a possible disastrous drought.

The duo further praised President Hakainde Hichilema’s maturity and personal charisma during their interactions in the just ended Cop26 summit in Glasgow.

Others who attended the courtesy call included Head of Economic growth and prosperity, Serah Bloom, Steven Bickers and Ben Powis, Second Secretary Political and Head of Governance and Political Development respectively.

  1. Of course they would be happy with a budget made by a puppet government they control. Why can’t I hear upnd members shouting the words “IMF measures” in celebration? We warned you haha failures

    The choice of words from the UK high commissioner to Zambia needs reflection, he is accountable to United Kingdom taxpayers. It’s not time to play politics with Taxpayers in both countries.

    “Add the same amount to both sides (either x’s or ones) Subtract the same amount from both sides (either x’s or ones) Multiply both sides by the same number (but not by zero) Divide both sides by the same number (but not by zero

    How it’s going to work.If CDF 1.6 Million was
    Difficult to manage and misappropriated then what about 25.6 Million?

  6. I don’t know what this high commissioner means, he knows very well that Zambia has problems with money to sustain the budget, has he promised to donate some to this government or he is just joking.
    Mr high commissioner Zambia is highly in debts from the lenders.
    All the money there is borrowed money how can this budget be good when all the money will be taken away by lenders and Zambians will be back with zero.

  7. The High Commissioner is simply confirming the OLD COLONIAL ADAGE OF saying ” CHALO ENA KAWENA, MALI ENA KATINA”
    Simply translated as THE COUNTRY IS YOURS BUT “WEALTH or MONEY IS THEIRS”
    Diplomatic etiquette bars Diplomats from interfering in other Country’s affairs. Its not a secret that we shall receive a lot of AID
    from our Colonial Masters but in Return for us surrendering some of if not ALL remaining Strategic Parastatals.

    Why has TONY BLAIR shown interest in Zambia ALL OF A SUDDEN and not IRAQ ? FILI UKO TULEYA
