LITUNGA’S SON, MUHABI AMONG OVER 100 DIPLOMATS RECALLED

Recalled diplomats have now reached in excess of well over 100, including the Litunga’s son, Brian Imwiko and former permanent secretary Bornface Chimbwali’s daughter, Kunda.

Well placed sources in the UPND administration have told Daily Revelation that the recalls are more widespread and have now gone beyond 100 from the 13 initially announced when President Hakainde Hichilema came into office.

“The recalls are actually more widespread than you think. You recently reported that prince Imasiku Mutangelwa’s recall has been rescinded as deputy Ambassador to Russia, but there is something you have missed out because the Litunga’s son Brian has been recalled from Brasilia and Chimbwali’s daughter Kunda also,” sources said.

Sources further said deputy permanent representative to the the United Nations Muhabi Lungu has also been recalled, and that the government is looking into effecting the recall on Kanchibiya member of parliament Sunday Chanda’s wife in London. Her recall letter was sent in 2018.

“The UPND government is set to spend around US$2.5 million on transportation alone on these massive 100 recalled diplomats back home,” sources said. “But of course the recalled diplomats should not be surprised because this happens with every administration that comes into office, because every administration wants to work with people they are familiar with. If Edgar Lungu could carry out those massive recalls when he replaced Michael in the same PF administration, how about a different administration coming in with a new party.”

  1. So what us wrong with that? MMD did and pf also did it. Each administration has its own policies so its normal. All the ambassadors under trump were retired but you never heard Americans complaining about that. Grow Up!

  2. True @ Piranha for I had that a hunch of malice in the article above with no relevance to be qualified as worthy news! Mentioning notable names of some of the recalled exposes the rot that was in the PF government of nepotism and gratification of favors afforded to PF! I just pray that the New Dawn government will tap into the large “enlightened” reserve of Zambians to sanitize diplomatic missions. Indeed it must not come as a surprise to anyone that the recalls are in effect and those in diplomatic missions should have known better and seen it coming for it’s the norm for a change of government administration aligned with the policies that are to be shared with the rest of the world! When diplomatic services embrace professional appointments and ethics then maybe a point where not all may be recalled at a go will be arrived at as then they would be representing Zambia policy and not limited to party politics! How I wish Zambians would be furnished with the credentials of their diplomats who in essence are the representatives of the presidency in nations that they are posted! As the recalled arrive they need to tell the nation what they achieved for it!

  3. This is partly because we lack career diplomats MMD and PF used to send cadres abroad many of whom were an embarrassment. They got themselves into problems abroad such as mistreating maids and fighting with spouses.

  4. IAM HAPPY WITH ALL MY FELLOW LOZIS IN GOVERNMENT TODAY FOR STANDING WITH HH7 THROUGTH THICK AND THIN DURNG THE TRUMPED UP TREASON CHARGES. IT HAPPENED IN LIMULUNGA YET THE BRE NEVER RAISED A FINGER. MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE THE LITUNGA’S SON WAS AN AMBASSADOR IN THE PF GOVERNMENT.

  5. This where all appointed due to nepotism, favoritism and cadreism so they need to come back. Look at all the children of politicians occupying jobs meant for the qualified poor. How can Mondays wife be a diplomat just as a favor because Monday was PF spokesperson? A lot of mischief was happening in the Civil service.

  6. As far as I can remember Muhabi Lungu is not Litunga’s son. Munkhondo Lungu(late) the former chief of Protocol was Muhabi’s Father. Please check your facts.
