I wish to air my complaint against the Zambian Embassy in South Africa. When an American is stranded or mistreated in another country,their embassy and US government moves in to help that person like a responsible father would do to his son.
In one week, a total of 87 Zambians where sent back at Beit bridge border after being denied entry into South Africa for not having yellow fever books and for having old yellow fever books even if it is valid but as long as it is not deep yellow in color. They were dumped at the Zimbabwean side.
The experience is very horrific and I wouldn’t like a fellow Zambian to go through the same.This continued and one lady was robbed and became stranded at the Zim border. The Zambian government never attends to such issues with concern, it never bothers them.
Bravo to the Nigerian government for the way they reacted by sending back South africans also after 150 Nigerians were denied entry and sent back from the South africa O.R Tambo airport for not having yellow fever books.
Whenever a Zambian visits the embassy in South Africa, they are not treated like their own.Why is this so?
I hope the PF government will do better in this area. I urge the new ambassador to Souht Africa to be more welcoming and helpful. A lot of people
complain about the treatment they get from there. The Zambian government must also start sending back South Africans who do not produce yellow books
upon entry into Zambia. Its time Zambians became united and supported one another. Matter of fact, we have no yellow fever in Zambia, so the South African government must stop discrimination against foreigners.
