Ever smiling Presidential Affairs minister Freedom Sikazwe says no sane person can appoint a Tonga as a spokesperson or any public relations position because they lack communication skills and will only talk of development in Southern Province.
Mr Sikazwe admitted that their is a vacuum or vacancy to replace Mr Amos Chanda as President Edgar Lungu’s press aide but one thing for sure is that the position is not open for Tongas.
“We are not tribal or hate Tonga people but let’s call a spade a spade ” said Mr Sikazwe in Mfuwe were he accompanied President Edgar Lungu for a work visit.
Mr Sikazwe says he loves Tongas and he has some working at his farms and Automotive Garage in Mpulungu”.
” Tongas are good at trade skills for example (Agriculture, Mechanics,Bricklaying and Carpentry ) but not diplomatic jobs”he said.
Mr Sikazwe has assured Zambians that soon his office through president Lungu will announce who will take over from Amos Chanda’s duties.
