Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba is the named diplomat allegedly circulating a malicious analogy of celebrated journalist Maureen Nkandu and her friend Cosmas Chileshe. An online publication yesterday reported that Chileshe, a diplomat at the Zambian mission in Washington DC, had abandoned his wife for Maureen. The former BBC News anchor took to social media to defend the allegation and lashed out at an unnamed diplomat sources have disclosed is Mwamba. “So some jealous guy whom I turned down takes to social media to lie about me and my dear friend Cosmas! A shameless deranged lunatic with a serious physical deficit!,” she posted on her twitter account. Sources have informed Zambia Reports that the said diplomat is Mwamba who allegedly attempted at an affair with Maureen but hit the woodwork after being snubbed. Mwamba enjoys a love-hate relationship with the website that is out to scandalise Maureen. On Facebook, Maureen posted, “Meet Cosmas Chileshe, my best friend. And for the record, he’s not 35 years old. He’s a journalist and a diplomat. Ignore the idiotic social media rants coming from a known jealous diplomat whom I turned down. He’s green with envy. Shame on him!!!” This morning Maureen, whose father Faxon was also a journalist, has come to the defence of Zambia’s Ambassador to Germany Anthony Mukwita who has been dragged in the drama. “Leave Anthony Mukwita out of this: I’m not one to dwell on social media issues but this I have to state: I’ve read on an online platform, Imbuto-pa-Zed, that the jealous diplomat who posted nonsense about Cosmas and I is now falsely accusing his friend Anthony Mukwita, Ambassador to Germany of having done so. “He’s lied that I’ve visited Anthony in Germany several times in recent months. The last time I was in Germany was in 1996! “This so-called diplomat hides behind a number of fake FB names to attack leadership of the the same party PF, that appointed him into diplomatic service. Reptile! Snake in the bag,” she vented. Chileshe, who sources say has enjoyed a longstanding friendship with Maureen from the time he worked with her father at Norma-Jean College, writes; “Meet Maureen Nkandu, my best friend. For the record, I am not 35 years old. My eldest child is 22. Ignore the lies being run by a known diplomat who was turned down by Maureen.” Chileshe recently divorced his former wife of 12 years in the Kitwe High Court with whom he has three of his four children. Mwamba is no stranger to allegations of being an active member of the online publication that launched the sensational reports having once been found wanting by the Lusaka High Court for such overt acts.
