Letter to the Editor

Chibamba Kanyama puts record right

I REFER to a tweet published on Friday 24 August 2018 about the recall of an IMF Staff member to Zambia.
I admit that it was an inadvertent error of judgement for me to publish the tweet, based on academic exercise of precedence, before engaging the government authorities to get the full picture over what had transpired.
It is against this backdrop I clarify my position that the tweet was purely an opinion.
In regretting the tweet, which may have negatively affected government operations, I hereby tender my unreserved apology to the Government of the Republic of Zambia for any inconveniences the tweet may have caused.
I wish to state that my commentaries on the economy are meant to help in the advancement of sustainable development for the country and that they are not meant to challenge the status quo or intended to be offensive to the government.
