Government offers its deep-felt congratulations to opposition MMD Lunte Member of Parliament Hon. Felix Mutati on his election as a member of the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) Committee of Elders, as contained in a communiqué just released on the 17th summit of COMESA Authority of Heads of State and Government held in the DRC capital of Kinshasa from 26th to 27th February, 2014.

Established by the COMESA Ministers of Foreign Affairs, the COMESA Committee of Elders has a crucial role of preventive diplomacy on issues of peace, security and stability as fundamental pre-requisite for the attainment of sustainable development in the COMESA region and beyond.

Hon. Mutati’s election as a member of this high profile organ of COMESA is not only well deserved, but is also a source of immense pride and honour to the people of Zambia.

It is also a sign of the confidence COMESA member states have in Zambia’s political and governance system under the leadership of His Excellency President Michael Chilufya Sata.

Government is confident Hon. Mutati, will represent the country effectively in this important regional assignment.

On behalf of the Government and people of Zambia, I convey our deep-felt appreciation to COMESA member states for the honour and privilege bestowed on Zambia through this election.

Zambia pledges to use this position to work with fellow member states in fostering peace, stability and unity in making the COMESA region a prosperous and better place to live in.

Hon. Mwansa Kapeya, MP
MINISTER OF INFORMATION AND BROADCASTING SERVICES AND CHIEF GOVERNMENT SPOKESPERSON
