Today from Hiiraan Online:
Zambia says there is no Somalian ambassador in Zambia
Friday, May 11, 2012
A media release from the Zambian Ministry of Foreign Affairs obtained by ZANIS says the Somali Embassy in Lusaka does not have an Ambassador following the demise of Omar Muhamud Umal in August, 2010.
The Statement says the Somali Government is yet to replace the late Umal while Mr. Shirwa Abdullahi Ibrahim is First Counsellor In-Charge of Political Affairs at the Embassy.
The Statement further says the matter at hand is an internal matter pertaining to the Embassy and the Somali community in Zambia.
It states that the Government of the Republic of Zambia stands ready to facilitate the resolution of disputes involving any member of the diplomatic Corps.
The statement further refutes allegations that Somalia nationals have access to Government Departments in Zambia a move that is contrary to the PF government’s policy on corruption.
“The Ministry will highly appreciate if any member of the diplomatic community has information on this so that it can be brought to the attention of the Ministry in order to ensure that culprits are brought to book,” the statement reads in part.
Zambia was reacting to the incidence where two people were fighting at the Somali embassy each claiming to be the duly accredited envoy to Zambia.
