Foreign Affairs Minister Joe Malanji announced at a media briefing then that government had decided to recall Pastor Chileshe and that he would be replaced immediately.

But Chileshe is working at the embassy and government has not told the nation about it’s decision to reinstate him.

Sources close to Pastor Chileshe told Zambian Eye that some people had to intervene and plead for him to the powers that be.

“Someone close spoke to the boss and pleaded that the young man be forgiven especially that the whole saga had nothing to do with his job. It is a private thing so he has been told to stay away from talking about his private life to the media,” a source close to Pastor Chileshe told Zambian Eye.

Efforts to get a comment from Foreign Affairs Minister this morning failed as his phone was not reachable.

Chileshe on Friday issued a press release below to the media in his capacity as First Secretary for Press at the Zambian Mission in Washington.

  4. I remember in those days. For one to be considered for promotion to a higher post, one had to be subjected to thorough screening, including one’s family status, social habits, etc. All this was meant to ensure engagement of a person with solid morals and character. It was also a measure of someone’s stability.
