Presidential spokesman says Uebert Angel still Ambassador at Large

Presidential spokesman George Charamba has dismissed claims that Prophet Uebert Angel has been stripped of his diplomatic passport and title.

Following a four part Al Jazeera documentary tilted “Gold Mafia”, retired opposition legislator Eddie Cross had claimed in an interview that the cleric had been stripped of the title and could face prosecution over the gold smuggling and money laundering claims in the documentary.

Charamba however was quick to bat the claims away under a Twitter post titled: “Clarifying on the status of Ambassador at Large Uebert Angel:”

“Following claims circulating in the social media that Zimbabwe’s ambassador-at-large, ambassador Uebert Angel has been stripped of his ambassadorial status, kindly be advised that His Excellency the President, Dr ED who is the sole appointing authority of all ambassadors representing the state of Zimbabwe, has not taken such a step.

“The ambassador – at -large remains in that status and executing all his duties as outlined at the time of his appointment. Please be so advised”, Charamba added.
