Zambia’s Ambassador to Germany Bwalya Chiti has refuted claims of an attempted murder on his life by Mrs. Rosaria Vosa, who is claimed to be his wife, describing the media reports as outrageously false.
Ambassador Chiti said he wishes it to be known that there has been a heinous disregard for the truth in the story.
This is a statement issued by First Secretary Press and Public Relations at Zambian Embassy in Germany Yvonne Shibemba.
‘The reports erroneously claim that Ambassador Chiti was knocked down by Mrs. Vosa with a vehicle after a marital dispute, stressing further that Mrs Vosa has been arrested by the Lusaka Police for attempted murder. The reports also state that Ambassador Chiti is presently hospitalised at the University Teaching Hospital in Lusaka after sustaining serious injury on his head,’ Ms Shibemba said.
‘To state it categorically, the allegations are false and insidious as Ambassador Chiti and his wife Mrs. Beauty Chiti are presently in Berlin, Germany and at no stage has he had a confrontation with Mrs Vosa who is also not his wife as alleged.’
She said Ambassador Chiti who has not been to Zambia for a couple of months, received the news with shock and dismay and therefore assures the general public that he is well and fit.
Ms Shibemba said the Embassy of Zambia in Berlin demands that an immediate apology, a retraction and a correction be issued by the respective news agencies, the Zambia Daily Mail and Lusaka Times.
Lusaka Times Stands by the Press Statement released by First Secretary Press and Public Relations at Zambian Embassy in Germany Yvonne Shibemba as the whole truth.
