——A career diplomat, Lameck Kamalo, says Zambians in the diaspora are not doing enough to bring investment opportunities in the country.

Mr Kamalo told ZANIS in Lusaka today that some Ambassadors and High Commissioners particularly are not attracting real investment into Zambia.

He advised President Michael Sata to recall or fire non performing Ambassadors and replace them with vibrant youths whom he said are readily available graduate diplomats.

Meanwhile, Mr Kamalo recommended that the Zambia Institute of Diplomacy and International Studies (ZIDIS) be upgraded to a university for it to attract international students which would later lead to Zambia coordinating conflict management in Africa.

And Mr Kamalo, who earlier visited Mufumbwe Member of Parliament, Steven Masumba and Zambian Musician Clifford Dimba, popularly known as “General Kanene” in prison, has called on the youths to stand by each other at all times.

Mr Kamalo who is also Chief Executive Officer of Big 5 Africa awards international described prison as a college where people are reformed and learn not to repeat the crime they committed.
