Government is concerned that Zambian diplomats abroad are relying on on-line publications spreading falsehood as a source of news.

Foreign Affairs Minister, Harry Kalaba, says it is unfortunate that online publications have continued to spread falsehoods and paint a bad picture of Zambia to the outside world.

Mr Kalaba is however happy that the streaming of ZNBC TV Live on the internet will help give Zambians abroad a true picture of what is happening at home.

Mr Kalaba has since praised ZNBC Management for making it possible for people to watch ZNBC TV online.

Mr Kalaba has since directed embassies to sensitise Zambians abroad on the live ZNBC streaming.

ZNBC TV can now be watched live on the Internet by going to www.znbc .co.zm and the clicking Live streaming.

Meanwhile, Charge d’ Affairs at the Zambian Embassy in France, Philomena Kachesa, says Zambians in the diaspora are following with interest various developments taking place in the country.

Ms Kachesa says the re-captilisation of Zambia Railways, the Link Zambia 8000, Pave Zambia 2000 and the L400 Road projects are some of the projects that have cheered Zambians abroad.

Ms Kachesa says the revamping of the Nitrogen Chemicals of Zambia- NCZ has inspired those in the diaspora as it will lead to the early distribution of fertilizer.

MS Kachesa says Zambians in the diaspora are also aware of the project to construct 650 health posts countrywide and the distribution of over 200 ambulances.

Ms Kachesa said this when she met Embassy officials and Zambians living in France at the Mission in France.
