Sata chides diplomats for meddling in local politics
President Michael Sata has warned diplomats accredited to Zambia against interfering in Zambia’s internal issues.
Speaking at State House when he met outgoing Canadian High Commissioner to Zambia and Tanzania Robert Orl, Mr. Sata said his government takes great exception of foreign diplomats entertaining opposition party leaders.
President Sata has since directed the ministry of foreign affairs to look into the matter. He said this when Canadian High commissioner to Zambia Robert Orr paid a courtesy call on him at statehouse to bid farewell.
President Sata commended the diplomat for not interfering in Zambia’s national affairs. Recently opposition leaders met with the EU delegation in Zambia.
And Ambassador Orl said Canada and Zambia have continued enjoying a mutual relationship that stretches from the colonial days.
He expresses happiness at his stay in Zambia and commended President Sata for his hospitality.
