State House says ZAFFICO Riots Have Xenophobic Connotations

State house says there are criminal elements inciting xenophobic attacks on the Chinese over the alleged sell of ZAFFICO will be prosecuted.

Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda says the lies on the sale of ZAFFICO borders of criminality.

Addressing journalists to give an update on the two day stay of President Lungu on the Copperbelt, Chanda said the riots over the alleged sale of ZAFFICO are unfortunate.

He says government has no intentions of selling any parastatal and that the attacks on Chinese nationals should stop.

  2. Tito

    When you have been given the instruments of power by the people’s choice you must not use it for infringing people’s rights one thing that the government should put into consideration is that governance is for a period now if you forget and think you will stay forever then a bad bacteria has invested in your syndrome at first people talked on the sale of ZNBC government refused but today they are saying no ZNBC HAS 40 CHINA HAS 60 secondly Zesco and KKI AIRPORT all these are a true reflection of a type of people leading us now it’s zaffico at last all Zambians so am alerting you all Zambians cerebrate the road construction taking place and tomorrow become slaves in your own country God bless you as you all think about so deeply

      Chinese should go kumwabo

  5. Daniel Banda

    Why are people panicking instead of waiting to see if it is true. I’m sure the reaction would be the same with same results. I’m sure those who have found themselves in the hands of the police some don’t have a reason to riot but to blindly follow and regretting missing the comfort of their peaceful home even in aporvert, your home is your home. Assuming this is truly political, then such a haste leader will be dangerous if he entered State House.

    I agreed with those who are attacking chanise people in this reason also there are killing our people. The silence of the bush doesn’t mean that there’s no animals.

  16. Cmk

    If this is true, please reverse it and repossess the institution. If not true, fabricators of this story must feel ashamed of themselves and stop misleading peaceful Zambians. God sees everything. Be carefuloo!

  17. Sinophobia

    Connotations? It’s xenophobia or chinophobia. Why is state house the only one connotating mwebantu?

  24. Bolingo

    U may wonder why one can’t wait to prove if it’s true


    All we needed was their technology bwana but not numbers in thousands coming to occupy our entire land and resources ,which we have been reserving for the future generation . Bwana when you want to solve problems look at both sides of a coin and find out the rootcourse of the problem ,not the way you are doing things just one sided ..and you think people who assured you in office will be queit just like that ?You are our servants not our bosses but you are doing the opposite .

  26. Majoni Tyson

    The country has been sold but they deny even what people can see. Mr thinks he is the only educated Zambian who can tell lies and have people’s mouths shut. Zambians are very wise pipo it’s just poverty haunting them. Just went and c they will show u what it means to be citizens in 2021.

  27. nefertiti

    White colonialists at play. They remind me of John Milton’s poem paradise lost. If they can’t have our resources then no-one should. And the poor Chinese who have dramatically chagned the face of the entire continent are bearing the brunt. To the Chinese please you know what you’re fighting. Don’t give up. To my fellow Zambians, reflect.
    By the way just Google on which country owes China the most…..

  32. concerned zambian

    As far as to I kno we have a thousand zambians In China either students,working or business men and women why should we be busy on the Chinese neck we have a lot of foreigners in our community selling sweets in small grocery shops why don’t you complain about them. China is a major partner to Africa just because Europe and the USA have been over shadowed and there are some political parties being funded by these two doesn’t give you rights to mislead the pipo face it be realistic stop insighting violence.

  33. Sibweni

    Fixing economic may take 20yrs and company sold by pf wil reposses without legal battles and if loses than govt pay heavy price. Kikikikiki….fix,fix….our economic other campigne tactic by UNPD. I wish zambia wuld riotd and protestd when mines and other companies where sold at a song price by pipo who want 2 fix it now if they bcom our president and this danger was 4 a purpose we see today.

  34. Jackson

    Chinese should go back to their native homes pantu nga twakalipa bakaya no buneneke bwabo.
