Zambian diplomats not paid for 3 months – Kambwili

Zambian Diplomats Go Three Months Without Pay, says Kambwili

NDC President Chishimba Kambwili says Zambian diplomats have gone for three months without pay.

Kambwili says the treasury is in red, hence the failure by Government to pay diplomats.

Kambwili says it makes no logic to maintain a bloated diplomatic service when the country has no money to carter for officers in foreign missions.

He has described the none payment of salaries as the worst form of cruelty.

He observes that the best the government could do is to recall diplomats so as not to subject them to embarrassment.
Kambwili disclosed this in Lusaka today.

And the NDC leader has urged Government to address the load shedding the country is experiencing.

He has bemoaned that the persistent power rationing is affecting trade and commerce.

He wonders what has happened to the new projects that Government started in 2015 meant to cushion the energy blues.

Meanwhile, Kambwili asked President Edgar Lungu to respect the findings of the Financial Intelligence Unit FIC.

The NDC leader says sentiments by President Lungu that the findings of the FIC are speculative are regrettable.

He adds that Mr. Lungu is afraid to act on the findings of the FIC report because he is one of the culprits mentioned in the trends report.

Kambwili is calling for the immediate arrest of all those mentioned in the latest FIC dossier.

And in another development, the NDC leader has expressed dismay at the illicit activities at the Ndola City Council.

He charges that he has information that the local authority has revoked land offers awarded to Zambian nationals at Dola Hill area.

He adds that the land in question has been ins

    Mr. Kambwili, just being negative about the issues that you raise is rather uaeless, if you don’t provide solutions. For example, you state “the NDC leader has urged Government to address the load shedding the country is experiencing”, it would be much better if you tell the government what they should be doing rather than leaving that up in the air. Government has as evwrybody knows totally failed with the energy supply – and that has everything to do with robbing Zesco of their budget time and again: the three last tariff increases never went to Zesco, vut went straight into state coffers; also no GRZ institution pays for any electricity – ministries, any government office, police station, school don’t even have a Zesco meter. The Zesco invoice for the Government has grown to more than 700 million US dollars – no mean feat! Imagine how many solar plants Zesco could hve built qith the money that is rightfully theirs but is systematically taken away. The energy sector could quite easily be part privatised, and the power deficit would disappear within two years, without even a cent from Government, and without another tariff increase. So, Mr. Kambwili, be positive and advise the government what to do rather than focussing and telling them what not to do……
