Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Copperbelt Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has been conferred with an honorary doctorate in public administration for his contribution to the growth of democracy in Zambia.

He becomes the second politician from the ruling Patriotic Front in the last two years to receive such and honour, the first bein Roan parliamentarian Chishimba Kambwili.

At the honorary award ceremony held in Pretoria, South Africa over the weekend by the Pan African Missionary Association, an affiliate of St Thomas-A-Beckett University of Canterbury, Kent in England, Dr Thinus Van Dyk said Lusambo was a true inspiration for many young people in Zambia and across the world.

Dr Dyk said the university had closely followed Lusambo’s political activities and was impressed by his strong commitment to uplifting the lives of the vulnerable in society especially young people.

He said the honorary doctorate should serve as motivation for other young people in Africa to rise and contribute to the development of the continent.

And Dr Johnny Johnson said Lusambo’s political activism should encourage young people to venture into politics as a way of serving humanity.

Receiving the gesture, Lusambo described it as humbling.

He thanked President Edgar Chagwa Lungu for entrusting young people with leadership roles in his administration.

“The doctorate should motivate me do even more for the people of Zambia especially my fellow youths. This would not have happened if it weren’t for the sound vision of His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu who saw leadership potential in me and appointed me to administer affairs of a very sensitive province,” said Lusambo .
