This decision is to ensure that our Government is not distracted from continuing to look for solutions for bettering the lives of our people.

I remain loyal to his Excellency, The President, to the Government of Zambia and to our party the United Party for National Development, that has sponsored me twice as Member of Parliament.
I will continue to diligently serve the people of Kapiri Mposhi as Member of Parliament.

Let me take this opportunity to thank His Excellency the President, my cabinet colleagues, the staff at Ministery of Foreign Affairs for their support while I served as Minister.

In due course we shall put the story into correct context.
