PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu says some professional organisations such as the Engineering Institution of Zambia (EIZ) have let down Government by failing to provide expert advice.
He has also noted lots of fake news on Zambia’s economic status.
The Head of State said the lack of participation in national matters by some professional bodies has cost the country resources.
Mr Lungu said lawyers have dominated discussions on national matters because there has been lack of participation from other professionals.
