And Sata has revealed that he plans to ask British Prime Minister David Cameroon to extend the stay in Zambia of the British envoys.
Sata made the statement about the unnamed MP being a refugee at State House on Tuesday when he met the Archbishop of Anglican Church Rowan Williams who wanted to know the position of the Government on refugees.
In saying that Zambia will continue hosting refugees, Sata claimed that one refugee was elected a Member of Parliament in Western Province after the MMD government provided him with a national registration card and voter’s card.
Earlier, Sata told British High Commission to Zambia Carter that he would ask British Prime minister Cameron to keep him and his wife Carolyn Davison longer in Zambia.
Mr Carter shares his position with Ms Davison as double high Commissioners.
The two envoys escorted the Anglican church leader to state house.
Sata knelt down and kissed the hands of the Church leader.
