Zambia’s honorary consul in Hungary Gyula Simko has offered 10 scholarships to Zambian students to pursue studies in game management services in order to create jobs and reduce poverty.
Mr. Simko, an influential businessman, says the scholarships could empower young Zambians with skills necessary to manage wildlife, which is one of Zambia’s best gifts of nature as Government diversifies the economy.
He was speaking last evening during dinner aboard the famed spoon stationary ship restaurant on the landmark Danube River, which he hosted for Zambia’s ambassador to Germany and Hungary Anthony Mukwita.
The Zambian envoy is in Budapest, the Hungarian capital to present credentials to the head of state Janos Ader, as Hungary is one of the six countries he is accredited to on a non-residential basis.
Mr. Mukwita is based in Berlin, the German capital.
Ambassador Mukwita expressed gratitude and undertook to take the necessary administrative measures to operationalize the scholarships through the ministry of foreign affairs in Lusaka.
