These are good and bad appointments because some career diplomats like Mphonda have been motivated, However what has been happening over the years has been a systematic effort to demotivate diplomats at a mission by giving them a Head of mission who has no knowledge or background of the job eg bringing cops to the otherwise noble profession. Cops and any other such people do not add value to our diplomatic service, They simply subject us to ridicule before the International community

Kenna Mphonda (not Kenny) is a good appointment. He started work as a Protocol Officer and rose through the rank.

I don’t know many of the appointed diplomats. However, let me say “thumbs up” for the appointment of two, bwana Michael Kamphambe Nkhoma and K. K. Mphonda. They are level-headed people which is one of the tenets for a diplomat. I wish you well as you return ku Embassy to continue where you stopped from.

Annie Kumwenda cannot refuse a position simply because northeners don’t want. Are Northerners going to contribute money to sustain her family and upkeep?. Refusing a position simply because you want to please Northerners would be both stupid and tribalistic. I am a Northener and if we take the appointments proportionally, then Central region only should complain.

You don’t realise a good wife until you lose her. (You don’t realise a deep well until its dry). Kunena kwa ndithe ndithe Nanthambwe anadzitengera. Mukamayankhula musathe mau, you don’t know what tomorrow brings.
