Hon. Miles Sampa, the Mayor of Lusaka, this morning, together with the LCC Director of Health Edgar Mulwanda, closed indefinitely the Chinese LANTIAN restaurant in Long acres. The official reason, according to the Mayor, was because they abrogated laws under the Food and Health Act namely:
1. Selling products labelled in Chinese and not English as prescribed by law.
2. Trading without a License from LCC.
3. Expired Fire certificate.
“We are moving in on all restaurants and other hospitality services especially of Chinese onwed that are conducting business without proper documentation or in an unethical manner,” the Mayor said.
Latian Restaurant, however, was reported by Muvi TV yesterday for only allowing entrance to the Chinese and denying native black Zambians for apparently COVID-19 related reasons. The Mayor added, “We strongly reprimanded the owner, a Mr. Tang, on that malpractice as well. Apartheid finished a long time ago in Lusaka after Zambia gained independence in 1964.”
The Mayor continued, “We urge all residents of Lusaka to whistle blow on any business or trading place exhibiting unethical practices. We shall move in decisively with supersonic speed. Together we can.”
