Charge D’ Affaires at the Zambian Embassy in Germany Mrs. Theresa Kimena has called on the Zambian community to make available their expertise for the benefit of their home country. Speaking when she addressed scores of Zambians, their family members and friends who turned up to celebrate the country’s 53rd Independence anniversary, Mrs. Kimena said some of them have lived in Germany far much longer than the diplomats thereby placing them in a more favorable position.
 
“You know this country much better than some of us working at the embassy”, the Charge D’ Affaires said adding, “therefore visit us regularly and we shall in turn reciprocate”. While statistics regarding the number of Zambians living in Germany are being reviewed and updated, there are those that have lived in the country close 40 years. They work in various sectors that include health, business and media.

In line with this year’s independence theme, Mrs. Kimena urged Zambians to speak well of their country. She said the views and sentiments they expressed in the hearing of others determined how their family members, friends and others feel about the country and its people. The Charge D’ Affaires said decisions to visit Zambia and invest could be negatively affected depending on what its citizens say about their country on foreign soil.
In a poetic-like-tone, Mrs. Kimena described her love for Zambia by referring to the country’s natural beauty. “Let me just remind all of us that Mother Zambia is a beautiful land, one of the most beautiful and richly endowed pieces of land to be found on Planet Earth for which we shall eternally be grateful to God, our Creator. It’s endowed with large bodies of water, rivers that are ever flowing, come rain, come sunshine; hills and mountains gracefully rise and fall while valleys and gorges interspaced with forests live side by side; and animals of all kinds call this their natural habitat. I love Mother Zambia, and I know you do, too”, Mrs. Kimena said.
The newly appointed ambassador to Germany, His Excellency Mr. Anthony Mukwita who is expected to assume his official duties in the next few weeks, attended the celebrations. In his greetings to the guests attending the celebrations, the ambassador-designate called for a minute of silence in memory of the 5th President of Zambia, the late Michael Chilufya Sata who died on the 28th of October in a London hospital in 2014.
