    Congratulations, Mayor Kang’ombe. It is so wonderful for us in the diaspora to hear of the successes of young Zambian leadership. There are so many disheartening tales of politicians becoming famous and well known for nefarious reasons, such as corruption, etc. The news of Chris Kang’ombe being elected as a Vice President of UCLGA (Southern Region) makes me my day.
