Dr. Mumba took a position that President Lungu must considering delegating Mr. Kalaba, a Patriotic Front (PF) Bahati Member of Parliament (MP), on account of current financial and economic woes confronting Zambia.

Dr. Mumba protested that it is very expensive for a seating Republican President to travel anywhere in the world as such expenditure can be reduced through delegating diplomatic subordinates.

“A lot of people that are supposed to travel with a Head of State and Government, so it is prudent to delegate Zambian missions or send his Mr. Kalaba,” advised Dr. Mumba

Meanwhile, Patriotic Front (PF) Media and Publicity Committee Vice-Chairperson Sunday Chanda criticized Dr. Mumba arguing that as a former Zambian diplomat in Canada, the televangelist turned politician must appreciate the importance of President Lungu travelling.

Chanda said Zambia and Tanzania has a very good economic relationship therefore Dr Mumba should not engage in mare chip politicking of name calling and rubbishing anything president lungu does all in the name of opposition.
