Foreign Affairs Minister Chishimba Kambwili

Foreign Affairs Minister Chishimba Kambwili has said that government will not be selective in dealing with criminal cases involving foreigners working in Zambia.

Mr. Kambwili said that government will not use any diplomatic channels in investigating any criminal activities suspected to have been committed by foreigners.

The Minister was reacting to developments in which Police in Luanshya are holding four Chinese nationals in connection with an indecent assault case involving 9 girls between the ages of 12 and 15.

Mr. Kambwili who is also Roan Member of Parliament told ZNBC News today that he is disturbed with the developments and has urged the police to investigate the matter.

He said that the law should take its course regardless of whoever has committed the crime.

Police in Luanshya arrested four Chinese nationals in connection with an indecent assault case involving 9 girls between the ages of 12 and 15.

A ZNBC news crew found the four Chinese nationals in police custody at Roan station while the girls were also there giving statements to police on today.

Copperbelt deputy police commanding officer MILNER MUYAMBAGO says the matter is still being investigated before the four can be charged.

But some of the girls interviewed revealed how they have been exchanging sexual favours for cash with the Chinese.

The girls says they are given 90 thousand kwacha for a session of sexual intercourse and 30 thousand kwacha for being fondled.

    This is nothing new.The chaps likes the African one.I lived in one mine township where 4 or more of these jack chan relatives will hammer one girl.I think this is a case of service gone wrong.I believe they just refused to pay for the service and the tuma girls decided to change nzelu.

However, the Chinese issue with local girls is a local matter that can be handled by local police officers, not even IG. If Kabwili is posturing about foreign affairs issue, he should concentrate about the Chec nationals whose president has written to Mr Sata over spying allegations.

    Introduce sex education in schools and make sure the upcoming generation is made aware of self respect and consequences of undulging in sexual activities outside of marriage. Yes, we are poor but this is not to be used as an excuse for wanting to have sex and earn a living out of it. For promoting unwanted behavior, the girls involved must be punished so that others don’t follow the same path. They must be given a punsihment such as sweeping the streets in town, clean the hospital surroundings, sweep bus stations, etc. this they can do on saturday when there’s no school.

    Is this case indescent assault or/and defilement? Secondly poor jounalism is not helping us instead its assisting the culprits. There is no follow up in such cases, the case in view is the Kalulushi saga where a foreigner was caught using dogs on our girls,the recent one of Iris and Nathan on ZCAS porno, the Nsansa School Boarding Mistress scandal plus many others. All these cases just die out in the dim light and make it easy for offenders to offers bribes to be released as these is no follow up. Some of such cases end up being thrown out under the guise of lacking evidence.ITS TIME JOUNALISTS OR NEWS WRITERS CONDUCT A FOLLOW UP TO AVOID CASES BEING BURRIED.

    The frontal lobes have been found to play a part in impulse control, judgment, language production, working memory, motor function, sexual behavior, socialization, and spontaneity.
    The frontal lobes assist in planning, coordinating, controlling, and executing behavior.
    People who have damaged frontal lobes (example would be a result of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome) may experience problems with these aspects of cognitive function, being at times impulsive;
    Cognitive maturity associated with adulthood is marked by related maturation of cerebral fibers in the frontal lobes between late teenager years and early adult years. The frontal lobe reaches full maturity around age 25.
    Any offender should be tried by the Zambian courts and put away for a very long time. This is plain child sexual abuse!

These guys need to be investigated. They were senior Australian, South African and British expats from those two mines. My insider informed me that they use their Zambian subordinates to round up these juvenile girls for them. WHAT A SHAME, WHAT HAS BECOME OF MORAL TURPITUDE… IN THE NAME OF FOREIGN INVESTMENT????
