Defence Minister Edgar Lungu says it was miscommunication which resulted in the failure to inform the authorities in charge of sentries to withdraw the military guards following the President’s travel to Israel.
Mr. Lungu has since apologized for the communication breakdown.
Meanwhile Alliance for Better Zambia (ABZ) president Frank Bwalya has wished President Sata well on his working holiday in Israel.
Father Bwalya says President Sata should take advantage of the working holiday to woo investors to Zambia.
He says President Sata deserves a break considering that he has been working very hard.
Fr. Bwalya has told QFM News that initiatives like the one the Head of State has taken to visit Israel can help the country develop, stating that no investor can come to the country without being approached.
