Govt confesses its diplomats depend on online publications


The Zambian Government has grudgingly confessed that Zambian diplomats abroad are relying on on-line publications for news inside Zambia.

Foreign Affairs Minister Harry Kalaba who made the confession however claimed that online publications have continued to spread falsehoods and paint a bad picture of Zambia to the outside world.

He wished and directed Zambian diplomats to start relying on ZNBC TV Live streams on the Internet saying it will help give Zambians abroad a true picture of what is happening at home.

ZNBC publishes propaganda and non-existent developments and PF news which most Zambians are not interested in.

Mr Kalaba has since directed embassies to sensitise Zambians abroad on the live ZNBC streaming.

The Watchdog will respond to Kalaba fully in due course.
