Zambia probes Chinese clothes factory murders
27. May. 2020 BBC

Zambia has reported 920 cases of Covid-19.
The Chinese embassy in Zambia said the killings were `appalling
and vicious acts of violence`.
Police say the motive for the attack, which took place in the
Makeni suburb of the capital, is unclear.
One of those arrested had fled to the city of Ndola some 310km
(192 miles) north of Lusaka, police spokesperson Esther Katongo
told the state-run ZNBC broadcaster.
Impromptu raids on factories
For the last few weeks, Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa has been leading
an operation to close Chinese-owned businesses, including barber
shops and restaurants, after locals complained about
discrimination.
He has also been sharing posts on Facebook, including videos, of
his impromptu raids on Chinese-owned factories where workers are
allegedly being mistreated.
In one video, he confronts Chinese managers at a truck assembly
plant about their policy of detaining workers and orders them to
allow the Zambian workers to go home.
Mr Sampa, who is a ruling party member, has not commented on the



 


killings.
He has clashed with the government over his operation against
Chinese firms.
However, the mayor has accused his colleagues of not taking
seriously the reports of discrimination against Zambians, our
reporter says.
`This is anarchy`
According to China`s state-run Global Times news site, Sunday`s
attack was likely to have been prompted by Zambians who
misunderstood the good intentions of some Chinese firms that have
recently been prohibiting employees from going home after their
shifts in response to the coronavirus crisis.
`This is interpreted by locals as an invasion of freedom,` the
Global Times quoted a Chinese person living in Zambia as saying.
Zambia`s Foreign Affairs Minister Joseph Malanji has sought to
reassure foreign investors that they are welcome in the southern
African nation.
`This is something regrettable... this is anarchy and this
government will not tolerate anarchy,` he said on Tuesday.

terms section 26C of the Skills Development Act 97 of 1998 as amended, the Minister of Higher Education is required to establish a register of artisans. This register unfortunately could not be implemented as the regulations were not yet in place to establish this register, therefore the NAMB letters were acceptable as they pointed to the absence of the National Register of Artisans. In the absence of a clear framework on how to recognize foreign artisans in the republic it meant that the Department of Home Affairs was left to its own devices hence the constant changes in approach. V.5759
