The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has again directed all former diplomats to surrender their diplomatic passports and CD vehicles.
Ministry Spokesperson Dorcas Chileshe said, “following the deadline of 31st January, 2017 given to recalled Zambian diplomats, cautioning against the continued use of CD number plates and Diplomatic passports, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has requested relevant authorities to ensure that the set deadline issued is adhered to.”
She said, “Last month, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Hon. Harry Kalaba expressed concern over the continued use of CD number plates and diplomatic passports by recalled diplomats who had been in the country for more than six months following their recall from the Foreign Service.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to remind all recalled diplomats of the obligation to surrender the passports and number plates within the required stipulated period. In this regard, the Ministry wishes to appeal to all concerned recalled Diplomats who have not yet done so, to kindly surrender their diplomatic passports and CD number plates to the Ministry to avoid being inconvenienced.”
