A DELEGATION from the American Embassy was yesterday snubbed by the Patriotic Front (PF) leadership.

PF acting President, Given Lubinda refused to meet  with the delegation which had requested for a meeting with the former ruling party top brass.

This happened when the US Political Unit Chief, Alexandra King Pile and her counterpart, Mr. David Chibanda, the Political Specialist at the Embassy, visited the PF Secretariat on Panganani Road in Lusaka yesterday.

According to PF Media Director Antonio Mwanza, Mr Lubinda told the duo that he would not meet them or anyone from the American Embassy until the American Embassy in Lusaka responded to a letter that he had written to them, two months ago, protesting the remarks, President Joe Biden made against the PF at the UN General Assembly last September.

Mr Lubinda refused to engage Ms Pile and Mr Chibanda saying he could not proceed to engage with the American Embassy until they responded to the numerous matters that he raised in his protest letter against Mr. Biden’s remarks.

Mr. Lubinda said it would be an act of hypocrisy and a lack of courtesy for the American Embassy to sweep the many critical issues that he raised in his letter under the carpet and pretend that nothing happened.
