Lungu makes new appointments, sends Emmanuel Mwamba out

President Edgar Lungu has made four new appointments to the Foreign Service and challenged the appointees to justify their postings by delivering efficiently.The appointments, which will take effect upon the receiving countries’ acceptance of the nominees’ credentials, are as follows:
Mr. Humphrey Chibanda: Ambassador-Designate to France (Chief of State Protocol, Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba: Ambassador-Designate to Malaysia (former Information Permanent Secretary)
Dr. Solomon Jere: High Commissioner-Designate to Nigeria (former Deputy Inspector-General of Police)
Mrs. Brenda Muntemba-Sichilemba: High Commissioner-Designate to Kenya (former Commissioner of Police)
The President has emphasised that he was in a hurry to reposition Zambia in international affairs and he therefore expects robust performance from all Zambian envoys serving abroad.
“I expect very high performance from all those serving in the Foreign Service and will not tolerate misconduct and laziness from anyone. We are in hurry to deliver.”
