Dick Masebo was appointed as Zambia deputy ambassador to Japan by president Michael Sata in June last year but was demoted to a lower rank after revelations by the Watchdog that he was a 23-year old retard without requisite qualification for that high position.
Dick Masebo is also said to have failed to organise the visit by Sata to Japan resulting in the president sometimes waiting for embassy staff in scheduled meeting rooms.
But the son of the Tourism minister has now been transfered to Malaysia to be in Charge of Economic affairs at the embassy.
The High Commission of Zambia in Malaysia is relatively new and was opened in April 2009 under the leadership of then president Rupiah Banda to tap into the economies of the east Asian bloc.
The Zambian High Commission in Malaysia als0 oversees countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Vietnam, Brunei and Laos.
It was president Banda’s vision that Zambia should enhance economic cooperation with those countries as no other Zambian leader had openned a mission in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.
