The Ambassador of the Republic of Zambia to the Republic of Korea, H.E. Ambassador Mumba Kapumpa today 12th June 2015 paid a courtesy call upon H.E. Ambassador Omrie Michael Golley, Ambassador of the Republic of Sierra Leone to Korea, at the Sierra Leone Mission in Seoul.
Recalling the excellent relations that have existed between the two countries for over 50 years, Ambassador Kapumba recalled a visit that he had made to Sierra Leone in 1982, when as a young lawyer, and part of a Presidential delegation to Sierra Leone, he had accompanied the late Zambian President Kenneth Kaunda to Freetown to visit our late Sierra Leone President Siaka Stevens.
Recalling fond memories of this visit, the Ambassador said that he had been struck with the beauty of the country, informing Ambassador Golley of the extent of the personal relationship between the two late Leaders, further recalling the late President Stevens personally driving the late President Kaunda around the streets of the capital Freetown.
H.E. Ambassador Golley responding said it was a great pleasure and honour to receive his Zambian counterpart to the Sierra Leone Mission, and further stated that he looked forward to working with Ambassador Kapumpa during their joint stay together in Korea advancing the bilateral relationship of the two countries, and also solidifying a positive common African regional position with their Korean partners.
