Segregation At Zambia’s Diplomatic Missions Worrys First Lady

First lady Dr Christine Kaseba says some of Zambia’s missions abroad are painting a negative picture of the country.

Addressing mission staff at the Zambia High Commission in South Africa on Friday, Dr Kaseba said she was excited that she had finally visited the chancery because it was difficult to do so in the last 10 years because mission staff was afraid to receive other people who belonged to opposition political parties.

She hoped the new mission staff at all missions would not be afraid to receive those viewed to be from the opposition.

“Missions are meant for Zambians, not party cadres. We need to help every Zambian,” she said in a statement released by first secretary for press at the Zambian High Commission in South Africa Patson Chilemba.

Dr Kaseba said indications showed that there would be massive development in Zambia over the coming years, but that would only come about if the missions worked hard to attract investment into the country.
