Mwambia clarified that she has been capitalising on her employer's support to carry on with her career, distance notwithstanding.

"On Tuesday, I made remarks at a State Department forum in Washington DC narrating my experiences with a human rights group; experiences very well known to that group. Just note, I continue carrying my career cross proudly with the total support of my employer back home,"
