In our Zambia Daily Mail edition of Saturday July 4, 2015 under a story headlined: “Ambassador Chiti injured in ‘attempted murder’,” we reported that Zambia’s Ambassador to Germany Bwalya Chiti’s wife Rosaria Vosa knocked down the diplomat with a vehicle in an attempt to murder him after a marital dispute.
It has come to our attention that the story is erroneous and a misrepresentation as Ambassador Chiti is not and has never been married to Ms Vosa. Ambassador Chiti is in Berlin and nowhere near Lusaka as alleged in the story. At no stage has Ambassador Chiti had a confrontation with Mrs Vosa.
It has also come to our attention that the man who was allegedly knocked down by Ms Vosa, who Lusaka Province commissioner of police Charity Katanga was referring to, is Bwalya Chilufya, 41, of house number 5768, Kabompo Street in Kalundu.
We unreservedly retract the story and apologise for the dismay and stress caused to Ambassador Chiti, his family and the Zambian mission in Germany
We also unreservedly apologise to Ms Katanga for this misrepresentation. – EDITOR
