ITS NOT MAGICAL BUT METHODICAL – HH
President Hakainde Hichilema writes below…
Our message to fellow citizens living in the United Kingdom was simply that they are welcome home anytime. Home is where the heart is. They may have left for many reasons but they are citizens and have an equal stake in the country.
We assured our brothers and sisters out there that we are determined and reigning in the economy so that we create space and opportunities for all.
We equally stated that come January, 2022, non of them will be sending school fees to children from Grade 1 to Grade 12 back home in Zambia for school because that is our job now but we encouraged them that the resources they raise since the responsibility of taking less privileged and orphans to school has been passed onto us, their income should be invested back home.
We have to rebuild and grow Zambia together. On their part, they have committed to be Ambassadors to sell Zambia’s potential in the UK and Europe at large.
Economic diplomacy is very important and while on this journey, we have made sure that this is top on the agenda.
It’s not magic but methodical, systematic and one button after another and eventually Zambia will no longer be a landlocked Nation but land-linked and will be turned into a production and processing point for goods in transit and out of it, we shall earn revenue for our people.
We also assured them that the corruption and asset recovery fight is in full gear. Soon results will begin to show.
We are one Zambia! One Nation and one people!
God bless you our people in the diaspora.
President of the Republic of Zambia.
