Social media not good source of info – Kampyongo

By Staff Reporter

 

Home Affairs minister Stephen Kampyongo has warned Zambian diplomats serving in missions abroad against the use of social media as the source of information about their country.

Kampyongo said he had noted that social media was full of falsehood, hence the need for people in the diaspora to countercheck the information posted on such platforms before taking it seriously.

He said contrary to what people read on social media, Zambia was peaceful and that all developmental programmes were being rolled out properly.

‘I’m advising Zambians serving in missions abroad and others in the diaspora to ensure that they represent the country well by being above reproach,” said Kampyongo on Thursday when he called on Zambian’s acting head of mission in Geneva, Margaret Kaemba.
