Germany’s ambassador to Zambia and special representative to COMESA, Anne Wagner-Mitchell declined Christmas gifts from a CEO of a Zambian company because the presents violated the ethics of German government officials.
In rejecting the gifts listed – among others, a power bank, a flash drive, and a thermos flask with a digital temperature display – she said she was “compelled to avoid even the appearance of gaining any personal advantage or to be susceptible to influence with regard to official duties”.
