South African diplomat represents a little too much, recalled from Shanghai 4

Lassy Chiwayo and partner

Sorry, I have no nude photos of Mr Chiwayo or his partner

JISHOU, HUNAN — Chinese people already have a pretty poor opinion of Africans, and South Africa’s consul-general to China has not helped matters.

Lassy Chiwayo (at left, with his partner) was allegedly caught three months ago wandering naked near his home in Shanghai. Chiwayo also allegedly assaulted the South African ambassador to China, Bheki Langa, at a Beijing function.

So, according to news sources in China and South Africa, he’s been ordered home (some say deported, but it’s not clear) and relieved of his duties. The official word is that he’s experiencing medical problems that have caused his erratic behavior.

Chiwayo denies he’s done anything wrong, and insists he is still consul-general to China, although he is now in Pretoria.

And the only reason I am blogging this tidbit is that I get to mention China and South Africa, where I have both lived, in the same post.
