Rating Justification

Mr. Emmanuel Mwamba was appointed as an Ambassador to Ethiopia by the Patriotic Front administration and has since been serving in that capacity. On the 31st of August 2021, Mr. Mwamba published an article attaching a picture to it on his Facebook page. The post mentioned that Kenneth Kaunda was nominated for the prestigious Noble peace prize in 2020. Mr Mwamba further alluded that the shirt worn in the picture was made to celebrate Kenneth Kaunda’s life. The picture that depicts Mr. Mwamba wearing the “Our Bally will fix it” shirt was photoshopped. The correct picture depicts Mr.” Mwamba wearing a shirt labelled “I love Kenneth Kaunda”.
