Lungu Calls For Urgent Measures To End S.A Xenophobia

President Edgar Lungu has condemned the ongoing xenophobic attacks in South Africa in all its forms and manifestations.

President Lungu has said attacks of this nature targeted at foreigners call for urgent concerted measures by the South African Government and the regional bodies.

“I call on all Zambians both locally and abroad to remain calm and disengage from acts of violence as they voice out their grievance.  I wish to assure you all that together, we are working on solutions to combat xenophobia and bring back the spirit of Ubuntu. Let us continue praying for peace and unity across the region,” stated President Lungu in a message posted on his Facebook page.

  6. kufahakurambwe

    “attacks o foreigners”.. It appears that Americans, British, Asians, Australians etc are not considered foreigners by these ignorant South African sons of black bitches? I pray the Dutch return and take South Africa back. These uneducated self loathing no good for nothing styopet swines were better left confined to Soweto where they could continue killing each other. To think the sacrifices several neighboring countries endured to help bring freedom. This is how they pay us back! Blinded with jealousy and inferiority complex.

  7. lusaka

    why cant the south african government allow armed force to control the situation cause some of our relatives are in s.a we don’t what can happened, what about s.a citizen in our country.

  8. magical minds

    God he ll never forgive that country

  9. KASAMA RABAN

    every thing you do in this world shall come back to you, it is the matter of time. enough is enough, why killing our people like flies sure?

  10. Kalok

    You African leaders STOP STEALING. Put up infrastructure and opportunity that will attract your people BACK. Let South Africa collapse under its sheer weight of ignorance while you attract your skilled citizens BACK!!!! Fipuli fyenu!

    • Luboy

      Thanks for the “words of Advise” Mr President,
      Looking at the situation it’s so tense that it has become the talk of the day, many hearts are touched by us their family members either biologically or something. Till when will justice be served but we are glad that you took time and are part of the countries concern, hoping for better things indeed.

  11. James

    People just kill the south African people

  12. Idiocy Detector

    Being ignorant is a disease people must avoid at all costs. How does Malema come into the picture when he is the only guy who has condemned the barbaric attacks in strong terms? Ala tulebelenga no kutamba ifikope. But the gentleman on the picture looks like an instigator, with all the xenophobic attacks against opposition in Zambia, a verdict of not guilty can be 150m km away.

    • Amos zuze

      I think chale cool is the only idiot and satanic person here.. Leave malema alone and hung

    • Mukanwa mukikopo

      The South African Envoy to Ghana’s comment is so sad to read. She talks of African countries to create employment for thier citizens so that they stop flocking to South Africa for what she calls “green pastures”. She has such a short memory to forget even her country is other African countries for green pastures, for what is shoprite, pickAndpay, pep, budget to mention a few common ones, doing in other countries if not for green pastures? At her age she must be able to remember that the liberation of South Africa came at great cost to many African countries. She thinks the shops owned by busyness men from other countries are given to them by her Govt at the expense of her brothers, sisters uncles, mothers, grandchildren. Shame on her. May I remind her and those supporting her negative, backward thinking that it’s of paramount importance to have a Africa in which its people are free to move, interact, share knowledge and learn from each others despite where they come from. May her ignorance of reality rest in eternal peace.

    The simplest way to end xenophobia is all of us foreigners to pull out from this nation because it is the way they have chosen as a government to create employment for their people. The whole nation and tribes have one song, foreigners should pack their bags and leave or face death, who can stop them? because the voice is one and the nation is theirs. Lets leave because it is everyone’s mandate to force foreignes out this nation in order to make space for jobs.

  14. @Lusaka_78✅

    The only way to stop this is to ask the Almighty for help!

  15. mwelalala

    God help us in such. …..

  16. Bombshell

    The way I look at it Xenophobia in SA can only be stopped by the S/African government n this can b done by the concerned governments teaming up and raise the voice. By posting the condermination on Facebook to me doesn’t carry enough weight.Y is it that our drivers ar always victims from both ends,(Congo & SA)?I have enough faith in our president that he will find means to save our pipo

  17. Andreas

    S.A will soon become poor and suffer after all we are the ones supplying copper and electricity for them, let’s just stop supplying raw materials to them

  18. Chief Mumbo

    The new leader of South Africa is like a sleeping dog .How can you allow such a bad thing to happen at your palace or country.Can a one man fight 5 or 7 men.So if you have army and police officers in how can you let such your poor general and your army poor wonder watching like a small dog 🐶 .When Something bad is happening if you want war or third world war to begin south Africa you can’t fight seven country and we believe that we let our people died and killed in country like rats and the other things which I can give you president of please try by whole mean to Stop those Violence and bring peace to your country.Because we have many more of you people of South Africa in our countries
    Please don’t be poor South Africa leaders
    May God bring peace to South Africa

    AFRICA UNITED, Let the rest of Africa come together and show de South Africa that we are annoyed and not happy by CLOSING all their Embassies across Africa and send their staffs back to S.A,Close all their businesses and de borders, stop all flight connections to and from South Africa and I believe this will bring South Africa to ITs KNEES.

  20. Joe London

    Can de AFRICAN UNION ,SADCC and deUN do something about de situation in south Africa, to show de relevance of belonging to them,because we can no longer trust their police and army.

  21. Joe London

  33. II FLAMZ

    Every time something goes on in Zambia,all the Government says is “WE’RE GOING SOMETHING TO ABOUT THE SITUATION, “the meal mile prices are high and yet nothing happened had been done about it. Our own people are been killed there in South Africa yet nothing has been done abou.
    Please Mr President tell us,WHAT MEASURES HAS YOUR GOVERNMENT PUT IN PLACE TO RESOLVE THE SITUATION? ??
    We need aanswers. Agently….

  34. P.M

    There will be a Former Liberation Movement (FLM) conference in Victorial Falls in Zimbabwe from 8 to 12 september 2019. Invited are ANC , SWAPO, FRELIMO, ZANU-PF, MPLA, CHAMA CHAMAPINDUZI and Botswana. My concern and disgust is that, how can any sane person talk about liberation movements in southern africa without mentiinung Zambia. This is insane and an insult to KK, the father of liberation struggle in southern africa. Iam hurt

  35. Daniel

    It’s not good and we Zambians are not happy for this. God will work this.

  41. Frank

    It’s very unfortunate that all this is going on. Are the South Africans are forgetting that they have their own people in other countries making them vulnerable in foreign countries.lets work towards stoping this evil act. Otherwise we will have no choice but to do unto them what they are doing to our people.

  42. KELVIN LUNGU

    Here in zambia we have alots of big shops running by South Africa which makes a lots of profit for there country….what about if we close them can there survive….??… sometimes humbleness dose not pay…let’s fight back

  43. KELVIN LUNGU

    Let’s close all South Africa shops….such as shoplite,,, pick-pay,,,chopise and many more

  44. Kenson

    You south Africans you are all dogs

  45. Samwamowa

    I condemn what South Africans are doing. Its heartless and unthinkable. A quick solution is for us to pull out all our citizens from that country. Why are our citizens clinging there. Last time Malawi sent buses to collect them from camps but after a short while they went back even without passports. South Africa should let the whites handle all immigration issues. And you will see what will happen. No one will be killed but all illegal people will be sent back to their homes paid for by their governmwnts and will not go back as finger prints will taken and used for incoming migrants. With corrupt Police and Home Affairs officials forget about end to this.

  46. James pengele

    Forgive them father,for they don’t know what they are doing.

  47. Katongo Patrick

    Please Lord manifest yourself in this crisis,we really need your help Lord please 🙏🏼🙏

  48. KAPAMBWE BESAM

    only God knows what is going on,for how long and how the end of this rubbish and useless behaviour shall be.

  49. Congratulations your Excellency Dr. ECL

    Your Excellency thank you for your wise counsel and leadership direction on this heart breaking Xpobic issue which the world is witnessing in disbelief. As part of the army who fought the Rhodes and Boers at the time, I wish on behalf of all our friends, some who paid the ultimate price of death during the Rhodes/Boer illegal assaults on our people and infrastructure, to express our disappointment at this continued turn of events.

    SADC must urgently take action against RSA
