No Zambia Foreign Minister for AU Summit

Zambia's foreign affairs minister, Given Lubinda, will not be representing the country at the AU after the president suspended him from the delegation. His suspension is rumoured to stem from either leaking of confidential information to media outlets or an internal power-struggle within the party (here and here).

Meanwhile, in other Zambia news, President Michael Sata has announced his new job creation plan. It's called 'Pave Zambia 2000'. [Which doesn't seem like the best possible choice of names.] The plan pushes industrialisation and (the reason for the name) aims to repair all major urban roads in the country. Rural roads already fall under the "Link-Zambia 8000" project. [Again with the names.]
