Copperbelt PF Youths Stage Protest Against Xenophobia

Hundreds of Patriotic Front youths on the Copperbelt have responded to the call by the party provincial leadership to stage a solidarity march with some foreign nationals being persecuted.

Copperbelt PF Youth chairperson Nathan Chanda who is also Luanshya Mayor rallied the call in the party circles for a march in Ndola.

Chanda noted that xenophobic attacks were on the rise in the country and needed to be curbed.

Although there has been no mention of nationality the protest is apparently in solidarity with Chinese nationals who have come under attack from some sections of Zambian political leaders.

“To all the Youths on the Copperbelt Province who may wish to attend a solidarity march in support of peace and unity against incitement of xenophobic attacks on all foreign investors and riots on the Copperbelt Province join us in Ndola tomorrow morning (Tuesday),” he said in an alert.

    Zambia wants to experience a civil wall which have never happened since indipendence.because some people see themselves super Stars.these are symptoms if u are not seeing and wait and see

    Give “ophans Zambians” jobs you promised them, stop abusing them. You make them drink and then drag them on to the streets to protect your lot, no, no. Those Chinese you’re protecting have been funded by their government take over Z.

    Chinese a true friend of zambia more b done 2 protect them evil and sick mind of promote xenophobia by opposition parties 2 win major support that they represent poor pipo. Zambian can carry a research and checking what china has done in southafrica and are bin appreciated by the pipo. South african’s is more developed than zambia and pipo are thirsty 4 chinese develop it.

      We dnt need Chinese in this country ar thief so let them go!! Back to china

  13. Bishop joseph

    It is better to have a blind leader than to have leaders without a vision to foster national unity and development. Zambians need good healthy facilities, education,sanitation, improve infrastructure, good agricultural policies as the country is experiencing weather changes we are expecting rainfall to be in small amount this season. We don’t need to protest it make no difference and help.this is an indication that this government have no agenda to improve the standard of living. I don’t know the impression it will give for an unemployed youth to protest,this is adding more advantage to the Chinese to have access to our asset and after which they squander and live zambians laughing in poverty.youths why should you be used in useless endeavors and when it comes to developmental issues u are left out?Y do want your time to wasted when u have many things to do for your life?if youths can not change their mindset then this country is going nowhere.

  22. INVESTOR

    Comment: By the way how many Zambians are learning in Chinese Universities.Therefore, am appealing to those who want rise against Chinese to think of their neighbor’s children who are learning in Chinese. Secondly, don’t bury your head in politics. HH maybe saying this as a politician while on the other side as a businessman he maybe trading with the Chinese. So persue your own personal future everyday

  23. Dj one

    I don’t know weather these protesters are Zambians or Chinese because my reason is simple and straight forward Chinese are in trouble they are protesting , wen Zambians are treated badly by Chinese u people are quiet learn how to balance nonsense.

  24. Mr. K

    The nosense we are going through now is having opposition political parties without visions all what they want is going to state house they cannot tell an alternative to the challenges you cannot develop without borrowing Zambia since 1991 has never seen what is going on under pf the county’s landscape is changing everywhere hakainde has now to issue propagandas in order to divert pipos mind to Chinese he has been embarrassed by developmental objectives of pf go go go and shame hakainde who has a degree of failure behind him are 5,presidential losses what can you say?

    Why are YOUTHS being used as shields in the march, if ten Youths were to be asked @ this same place to look in the CAMERA TO EXPLAIN why they are there. I doubt they’d be able to explain off caff unless they’re couched. Comment

  39. chendabusiku

    If HH was really patriotic to our great nation he would have been in the forefront leading against the Xenophobia against the Chinese nationals. Yes we need jobs for Zambians. Yes we need to regulate what foreign nationals can or cannot own in our great nation. But for a leader of the opposition to be in the fore front to lead Xenophobia just for an extra vote it is unbelievable. HH must know that the majority of Zambians do not approve of this cheap and dangerous move. Yes, we must resolve problems as they arise but not to incite the poeple to rise against foreign nationals. There is a better way to critisize but as usaul the Namwala boy always choses the (Underfive) childish way.

  40. Samuel sikalongo

    It is stupidity of the PF to protest on behalf of the Chinese over the sale of Zaffico using AVIC dump trucks as transport.
    China should stay away from our internal politics.

  41. One Zambia one Nation

    Some pipo are not Zambian coz if you are a true Zambian you can not encourage riots that’s shows us that you are not a true leader

  42. Jms

  43. leon

    Nothing will change in Zambia till 2021 why because the leadership likes pretending the moment they do away with pretence Zambia will become rich

  44. Razor

    So these can march without permit it’s ok? But when people march against the purchase of fire tenders at exorbitant prices they are arrested and up to this day still appearing in court.
