New SADC high commissioner vows support for regional peace, development


Zambia’s new High Commissioner to the Southern African Development Community (SADC), Pamela Chisanga, presented her credentials today, pledging proactive support for regional peace and development initiatives.

The ceremony, held at SADC headquarters in Gaborone, saw Chisanga officially appointed as Zambia’s representative to the regional bloc.

Notably, the presentation took place in a boardroom named after Zambia’s founding President, Kenneth David Kaunda, a key figure in SADC’s establishment.

SADC executive secretary Elias Magosi commended Zambia’s current role in leading the regional security bloc through President Hakainde Hichilema’s chairmanship of the Organ on Politics, Defense and Security Cooperation.

Chisanga, in turn, reaffirmed her mission’s dedication to improving communication and engagement between SADC and Zambia, particularly given the latter’s current leadership role.

She pledged a more proactive approach in supporting SADC initiatives, mobilising support, and influencing positive outcomes.

The high commissioner further applauded SADC’s achievements and expressed her desire to facilitate stronger interaction between the Secretariat and member state representatives in Gaborone.

“I am committed to supporting SADC in its endeavours towards a thriving and prosperous Southern Africa,” Chisanga declared.
