President Michael Sata has called on Zambians to ignore individuals who are demanding for the immediate release of the new constitution.


The President reiterated that the country already has a constitution in place hence the need for people to stop talking about the country getting a new constitution.


He noted that it would have been impossible for his administration to run the three arms of government without a constitution.


The President said this at State House in Lusaka today.


And President Sata has appointed former Kitwe Town Clerk Ali Simwinga as ambassador to Egypt.


Mr. Sata has also appointed Godwin Phiri as Commissioner of Police at State House, Robert Kasezya and Pride Kabuswe as Public Policy Specialists under the Policy Analysis and Coordination Division at Cabinet Office.


President Sata has since sworn in all the newly appointed officers at a swearing in ceremony at State House in Lusaka today.


Vice President Guy Scott, Foreign Affairs Minister Wylbur Simuusa, Home Affairs Minister Ngosa Simbyakula, Commerce Minister Emmanuel Chenda, Gender and Child Development Minister Inonge Wina, Lusaka Province Minister Philip Kosamu and other senior government officials attended the ceremony.


And speaking to journalists in an interview, Zambia’s Ambassador designate to Egypt Ali Simwinga said his main priority will be to strengthen the bilateral links that exist between Zambia and Egypt for the development of the two countries.


He noted that there were outstanding agreements that already exist between Zambian and Egypt that need to be strengthened.


Mr. Simwinga said there were also a lot of things that Zambia can learn from Egypt especially in areas of trade and tourism.


He has since pledged to do his best to ensure that Zambia maximises the friendship ties it has with Egypt for the good of the nation.
