Newsline: Zambian diplomats allegedly in sham marriages in the US for fear of going back home

Several diplomats in Zambian embassies abroad are afraid that they will be sacked and sent packing back to Zambia after the August elections. The diplomats are aware that many host countries if not all require diplomats to return home when their diplomatic assignment ends otherwise they risk becoming illegal aliens like many Zambians in the diaspora. The sources say many diplomats have asserted that it is better to be illegal in the US than to have no employment in Zambia. The only way for a diplomat to remain in America is to marry an American for papers. So these diplomats are getting engaged to Americans and even to Zambians in the diaspora who have obtained legal papers. Recently a diplomat in Washington DC embassy displayed her engagement ring on social media receiving great praise and admiration from her social media friends and fellow diplomats. It is expected that she will have a quick marriage in order to secure her place in America.
