Former Finance Minister Katele Kalumba has cautioned government against create uncertainty in the economy in manner it is handling information pertaining to President Michael Sata’s working visit to Israel.

Dr. Kalumba who served as Foreign Affairs Minister in Levy Mwanawasa administration said there are economic and vital security interests that can be provoked by conflicting statements coming from government officials about the President’s visit to Israel.

He said this is especially that the Zambian people have lost a sitting President before and are therefore anxious to know facts about President Sata’s health in view of widespread speculations surrounding his working visit to Israel.

Dr. Kalumba told QFM News in an interview that the health of the Head of State is of national and strategic interest to Zambians, the country’s cooperating partners and enemies of the State.

He said that this therefore calls for responsible and compassionate public utterances and intelligent management of information about the health of the President.

Dr. Kalumba said government should be as factual as possible by giving out convincing information to the people in order to sustain the confidence that there is constitutional continuity in the governance of the country. – QFM
