Zambia’s President Michael Sata has warned foreign Diplomats of expulsion from the country if they interfere with the country’s internal politics.
And President Sata has told Diplomats to stop the idea of visiting him at Statehouse without following the right procedure of going through the Minister of Foreign Affairs.
President Sata who sounded the warning a few months ago repeated in on Friday saying it will be embarrassing and sad to have a Diplomat expelled from the country. He says Diplomats should stay away from internal politics.
On the visits by Diplomats at State House, President Sata said they should stop and instead go through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and see the Minister In-Charge.
He was speaking when he received letters of credence from three foreign envoys accredited to Zambia, thus Somalia’s Mohamed Hassan Daware, Sifamu In-umoru Momoh of Nigeria and German’s Bernd Finke.
Early this week on Tuesday night top foreign diplomats in Zambia are said to have visited President Sata in hurriedly arranged meeting where they cautioned him and his ruling Patriotic Front to refrain from using the public and their allied private media partners from a careless propaganda campaign that has the potential to trigger genocide like events of Rwanda in 1994.
The Diplomats led by Ambassador of US to Zambia Mark Storella, others from the UK mission and South Africa are said to have told President Sata in no uncertain terms that he will be held accountable for any violence that would come from tribal conflicts in Zambia if he did not deal with the hate propaganda his supporters were now distributing against the Tonga tribe using public media.
