The Chinese embassy in Lusaka has ignored a mob of PF thugs and officials who wanted to recruit the ambassador in their hatred for UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema. The PF mob wanted to present what they called a petition to Chinese Ambassador, Yang Youming for being absent at a luncheon hosted for diplomats by UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
No official from one the embassy welcomed the mob despite being sponsored by Zambia’ State house to the tune of K500 000.
The mob led by PF Media Committee Vice chairperson Banda and Lusaka Province Youth Chairperson, Kennedy Kamba (an old man) ended up dropping the petition at the reception like an application letter for a job while Chinese officials were busy working.
Later and in shame, the mob starting giving interviews to ZNBC which was part of the procession.
The Watchdog is reliably informed the Chinese embassy is actually okay with other envoys’ visit to Hichilema’s house. He was just busy that day.
In their eternal ignorance, the PF say the the move by the 15 diplomats to visit Hichilema is against the provisions of the United Nations’ Vienna Convention charter, but they expect the Chinese ambassador to take their side.
An expert on diplomacy told the Watchdog that it was unthinkable that the Chinese envoy was going to be seen to taking sides against other diplomats.
