A picture where Masaiti member of Parliament (MP) Michael Katambo, the Zambian minister of livestock and fisheries, is seen kneeling for President Edgar Lungu has gone viral. This was during a discussion after attending Mass at Mary Immaculate in Lusaka on Sunday, March 19th. While Lungu sat comfortably on the only chair in the office, Katambo with fear all over him, clenched both hands as he knelt.
Lungu and Katambo have become the butt of jokes across the continent, as Fikile Mbalula, South African minister of sports, taunted them on Twitter.
“Zambia’s president holding discussions with his livestock minister. No seat for him, not even kneeling,” Mbalula wrote.
