Professor Saasa notes that Dr Kalyalya will work well because he is familiar with the operations of the Bank of Zambia having served in that position from February 2015.
“The appointment of Dr Kalyalya is a good move, I would like to thank his Excellency President Hakainde Hichilema for this appointment, Dr Kalyalya is a re- known Banker at Central Bank and he is respected here in Zambia by most professionals and he is also recognized globally,” he said.
