Cosmas Chileshe remains recalled

A source at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed that Cosmas Chileshe, former First Secretay For Press and Public Relations at the Zambian Embassy in Washington remains recalled.

Last week, speculation ran rife when Chileshe issued a media statement on behalf of the Washington Embassy.

“It takes time to bring back recalled Diplomats as funds I’ve to be secured and released for their repatriation. And unless there is an adverse risk we encourage them to work till the last day.” A source said.

Chileshe 42, was fired after he abandoned his wife and children for veteran broadcaster, 51year old Maureen Nkandu.

The two paraded their affair on social media while the wife Claudia Musonda and the children were chased from Washington after the messy divorce.

But Minister of Foreign Affairs Joe Malanji said that the Ministry would not allow anyone abandoning family values and displaying moral degradation.

He said to this effect President Edgar Lungu had authorised the recall of the truant diplomat.

    It is like in PF the left hand does not know what the right hand does.When Malaji was telling us that the recall is with immediate effect he did not know that his friends had looted the coffers.

      The truth is that diplomats are normally given three months notice for them to wind up and return home. These recalls are not accompanied by immediate release of repatriation money. Therefore, the three months is a window which the state uses to prepare repatriation money and for the concerned officer to wind up his/her affairs at the mission. Meanwhile the officer has to continue performing his/her functions up to the time he/she returns home. So, there was nothing wrong for Chileshe to continue working as Press Attaché and churning out press releases until he returns home.
