PF regime ambassador to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba has trashed reports that he has been fired and replaced by Sunday Chanda. Reports circulating on social media indicate that Mwamba has been fired for causing Edgar Lungu unnecessary but unprecedented embarrassment and humiliation when he went to attend a SADC summit in Johannesburg last week.
While in South Africa, Lungu became an object of scorn and contempt when his attempt to summon opposition leaders in that country was met with ridicule. Lungu who has since gone into hibernation, in shame, somewhere in Mfuwe is trying to blame Mwamba for the embarrassment, although Lungu sanctioned the attempt to summon Julius Malema and Mmusi Maimane.
Mwamba has however told people close to him that Lungu can’t fire him. He told several confidants that if at all he will be moved as envoy to South Africa, he will simply be given another big position. Mwamba has reportedly told his allies who include Antony Mukwita that Lungu owes him a lot so he can’t touch him.
