    Is it true that Zambia is the first Chinese colony in Africa? If that is the case then Lungu had legitimate concerns that PLO was going to pluck off his feathers without boiling him….in the open….at day time!

    The current Zambian Leaders’s mode òf thinking is 50 years backwards. Where on Earth would you find find a Leader who denies other Intellectuals to share the views of other Intellectuals? This is utter stupidity on the part of a Zambian Leader. That act alone shows the Intellectual bankruptcy of Mr Lungu as a President.

    Messy – Yes, but you can also not make this a place for any charlatan to come and play their silly games. There are limits to anything. Just demand that the government is fair in decisions of this nature. Lumumba is a critic of Chinese investment in Africa, and the whole world through people like you are talking about how Zambia is being recolonized. So, Prof Lumumba’s talk was going to have the potential of even inciting violence against the Chinese in this country – and I am not a fun of the behavior of some Chinese in this country.

    By Top Secret.
    President Edgar Lungu has stated that Professor Plo Lumumba of Kenya was deported from Zambia in line with the laws.

    And President Lungu says no one will be allowed to speak ill of the Chinese investment in Zambia.

    The President was speaking in an exclusive interview with Top Secret’s State House correspondent Chomba 

    And President Edgar Lungu adds that Lumumba’s entry into Zambia proved as a security risk as he was going to talk about and against the Chinese alleged colonisation of Africa.

    “We have laws and this is our country and I decide which country to dine with just like I can decide who my Ministers must allow entry, you cannot come and start talking about those investing in my country,” said President Edgar  Lungu

    The Kenyan renowned professor was yesterday sent back home and was not even allowed to even step foot on the Zambian soil by the government authorities.

    This is unacceptable, we are not in police state where even ideas, thinking have to be controlled. Even in Kaundas time we didn’t see such repression. This country was a refuge for people running away from repressive regimes but alas now we are the hallmark of repression.What is the government scared of and what message are they portraying to the outside world.  
    For the people who organized the aborted presentation please arrange for a video or Skype conference for the Prof to air his views.

    The only reason the professor has not been allowed into the country is because after the arrest of HH resulting from the Mongu road fiasco, the professor in a lecture said “There is need for hygiene in Zambia.”

    Zambia being a Christian nation, I could have hoped that the national leadership found his professor Lumumba’s offense and told it to him before blocking his entry. Like this we Zambians who move alot will be facing rejection in other countries. This is not good for me, not good for our children and not Zambian.

    Chinese nationals who are poachers, those who want to have mercenaries on our soil, criminals who send to death our citizens, and those who rob innocent citizens with their flashy phones are the ones who deserve deportations back to China.

    PIG Kanganjia and the Police system had the audacity to recruit Chinese nationals as “Reserve Police Officers”. What a criminal offense Kangania committed! I was told by a Chinese lady seated next to me on our Zim flight from Beijing to Harare about how bad Chinese nationals are. It shocked me as it was coming from a fellow Chinese national. 

    Now these are the heartless kind of people we have brought into our country and whom we are protecting by deporting our genuine learned brothers and sisters from our African soil. What a shame!

    A dancer from RSA. was deported, Tendai Biti was denied entry which amounted to a deportation. Hey let’s put a stop to this! Is this not dictatorship? If foreign nationals can be treated like that then those of us with dissenting views within the country are arrested at their discretion for no good reason,, (Pilato, Laura, lone protestors etc), imprisoned, our emails and phones tempered with. We even claim to be 54 years independent! What a disgrace!

    Noble citizens who bought tickets must not claim refunds as a way of showing solidarity with Eden University and sending a strong signal to dimwits that intelligent Zambians are not averse to intellectual debate.

    Our President  made a good speech in New York this week where he said the World must focus on human dignity.. What dignity is there in deporting people from the Zambian soil who have no criminal records in the world?

    I don’t know why you guys are complaining, what did you expect from kaponyas? This was expected even by lumumba himself unless he is dumb. If he had been allowed in now that would have been something out of the ordinary!

    Melania Trump visits Africa next week and guess what? Zambia is not on the list, despite pronouncements that we are a democratic state and many appreciating what Zambia has achieved. The first lady leaves Monday on a weeklong trip to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt, 

    Stories of deporting reknown world citizens do not sit well in most developed and democratic states. We simply have a bad record. There is urgent need to stop this trend. Power needs to be handled carefully and deporting Professor Lumumba and Mmusi Maimane is being unpatriotic to our nation’s well being with other countries in the World.

    We  knew that professor Lumumba was coming and should have stopped the process in the beginning and not wait until he is at our airport. As a Zambian I feel embarrassed given the fact that not long ago, DA leader Mmusi Maimane  was also deported at our airport. What message is Zambia sending to the World? Do we really have democracy alive?
