Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa, His Excellency Mr. Muyeba Chikonde, with his wife in green, welcomes South Africa’s Energy Deputy Minister, Ambassador Thembisile Majola.

ZAMBIA’S High Commissioner to South Africa Muyeba Chikonde has assured that no Zambians have been affected by xenophobic attacks.

In a telephone interview from Pretoria yesterday, Mr Chikonde allayed fears that some Zambians resident in South Africa have been affected by the xenophobic attacks.

Mr Chikonde said the mission is engaging all relevant South African government wings to ensure the safety of all Zambians.

Most of Zambians live in areas far from the settlements affected by xenophobia.

The mission has put in place measures to protect Zambians in that country.

“We have also dispatched a team to Durban to assess the situation and secure the lives of Zambians,” he said.

The mission is taking the situation with precaution even though Zambians are not affected in the attacks.

And Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili says Zambians working in South Africa have not been affected by the ongoing Xenophobic attacks in that country.

Mr Kambwili also says government has not received reports of any affected Zambian.

He has since condemned the attacks in South Africa.

Mr Kambwili says the world is a global village and people need to coexist.
The Minister said this in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka.

There have been sporadic attacks on foreigners living in South Africa.

  1. Sporadic and Very Brutal and inhumane attacks that can only happen by those South African Animals we died for.

    sanctions are needed against this country by fellow African countries to bring them back to war where they can destroy that useless country and slaughter only themselves.

    They have no right to kill other peoples children like that.

    go forbid and hope Africa comes together against this faecal country.

    • South Africans are cursing themselves just like Zimbabweans did when their country was paradise. Who thought Zimbabweans could be refugees in Zambia when they were day in day out in Victoria Falls Towns mocking Zambians our poverty. God is greater than this small country of RSA. He can bring it down and allow them to massacre each other to zero while we are gone. this xenophobia wont end with blacks. after blacks are gone they will realise that things are not any better and will go for whites. After whites things will degenerate to where they will slaughter each other and burn this country down completely, after all there is already tribalism here among them.

    • Mr Chikonde the thugs have just not caught up with you yet. They will come to your embassy, put a tyre around your neck and set it on fire. The people Zambians voted for need to ensure the livelihoods of their people are improved to try and retain their citizens. Why should we have more Zambians living in SA than the South Africans themselves?

    • It is amazing that our High Commissioner is “reactionary” and not proactive.
      Everyone who is not South African is affected particularly those who are black. One doesnt have to have a tyre around his neck to be considered “affected”. Fear itself is a measure of being affected and it is such irresponsibility that makes insult these people living of the public purse but doing nothing other than enriching themselves.
      Zambia really needs new and vibrant brains who are willing to serve and deliver in public service.

  2. The Highcommissioner is not telling you the Truth, I was told that they don’t have money and there is nothing They can do after my daughter who is 4 was affected on Tuesday.

    • How was your daughter affected? Please do not spread alarm on this forum. I live in Johannesburg and so far none of my friends who also live in Johannesburg have been affected. My maid who is from Zimbabwe and lives in an informal settlement also indicated that they have not been affected.

  4. Too say no Zambian’s have been affected is to put it mildly. To be affected should not only mean being physically attacked. The Chairperson of Zambia association in South Africa was on Highveld radio (SA radio station) hardly 2hrs ago where he talked about the fact that Zambian’s and other African national can no longer feel free to say where there a from in public. He also talked about how Zambians who have travelled to JHB for businesses are holed up on their hotel rooms because they fear to go out into the JHB CBD to conduct business. Are these not effects? Children of foreign national also no longer feel free to go to school right now for fear of being identified and possibly victimised so I can definitely understand when #2 Samson says his 4year old daughter has bee affected.

    • I think ni chizungu pa last, in trying too hard to be diplomatic maybe Chikonde swapped the word “butchered” with “affected”.

  5. I want to believe that being affected goes beyond physical involvement. If that be the case then HE high Commissioner. When we participated in their liberation struggle, it wasn’t that we were physically abused by their oppressive govts. We felt for them. HEHC see your role in that perspective. May be you are too young to have experienced that struggle.

    We expect you to champion the protest. South Africans are more likely to listen to Zambia than anybody else. Use your advantage to bring this barbarism to an immediate end with sanctions on perpetrators. They can be identified from those gruesome pictures!

  6. They should recall this sorry excuse of a diplomat who happens to be late dictator Satans’ relative.How can he say no Zambians have been affected?
    As for us Zambians let us take advantage of this foolihness by these rogues to hit them where it hurts.Let us stop buying there goods and encourage locals to take their place.You mean we cant make cornflakes and the like?And why is Lungu and his gramps Mugabe the Sadc and AU chairman quiet even when his own pipo are being slaughtered?
    Boycott Shoprite,Game Debbonnairs Pick n Pay.When you buy from there you are creating employment for these dogs.
    And i hope the old fool KK is seeing how we are being rewarded for losing our loved ones in helping these dogs.

    • While boycotting SA products sounds like a solution, boycotting stores like Shoprite, Game and PnP will have quite significant negative impact in Zambia too. Think of how many Zambians are employed by these businesses. I think a boycott of all things South African would be counter-productive. That said there are some business that if we boycotted would affect South Africa more directly. For instance If one could use alternative airlines to South African airways. I think they employ very few Zambians.

  7. This is what happens when you don’t study about self, you call your own “kwere kweres” and self distract this is exactly what religion does to you…these ignorant RSA morons are more brutal to their own than their slave masters were to them…how they must be laughing at us now doing the work for them.
    People dedicate time off to study about self and where we came from; teach your children about Afrikan consciousness instead of letting them be brainwashed in Sunday school. People always see Mandela as a hero the man that walked out of prison was a puppet..tell me where outside Africa have you heard of a reconciliation commission even today the Jews and Mosad “hit squads” are still hunting down Nazi collaborators and bringing them to trial.

    • So what if it is only Africa that truth and reconciliation commissions existed? Similar ones also took place in Rwanda. Does it make them wrong? It might just be one of those few things that African’s have done wrong. If Mandela was a puppet because he pushed for forgiveness then I salute him being a puppet!! If it was not for those concessions that Mandela agreed to apartheid would have continued for much longer and cost many more lives. Same can be said for the progress that Rwanda has made after the genocide..in part due to the willingness for people to forgive and look forward instead of backwards.

    • Umusungu temunobe!!! South africans have been damaged too much!!! How can you destroy your own fellow africans. If we as africans had garveyism, pan africanism taught to our children in schools right from kindergarten, our people would learn to put africa first. I dont know what our education ministers in africa are doing in terms of curriculum development. it should be compulsory across all borders of africa that pan africanism is taught in schools. Africans should love themselves first before they even think about a butter milk complexion, blond blue eyed jesus. We would rather kill our own people than these fake Jesus look alike cave men from the caucasuses,we call whites. And i know why. its because we have been programed this way. African leaders guide us with proper strategies!!

  8. To believe what these backward SA fools do to other Africans you MUST now believe how Guy Scott described these South Africans. They are still backwards and indeed not appreciative of what the other African countries did for them……..Mandela must be turning round in his grave to what is happening in SA today.Surely can you rejoice when another human being is being burnt to death? Shame on these maroons and for theirs, shall be the ever lasting fire in hell. What are our African Presidents waiting for?? Let us isolate them and boycott their goods and keep a distance away from their madness….If this situation happened in Europe, Us Africans would have been the first ones to organise demos in support of the suffering muzungu….Africa for you!

  9. In the 90’s I crossed into Zimbabwe at Vic Falls, all of us black Zambians (mostly cross-border traders) where ordered to wait outside the border post while they processed ALL Europeans & asians. After clearing them we were asked “why do you keep coming to our country? do you see us coming to your country”. To those who were adults in the 90’s I think you will agree with me when I say NEVER in my wildest imagination did I ever think I would see the day when Lusaka would have so many of their traders, artisans even see Livingstone battling with their cheap prostitutes. Karma is a B…… Still do you see any harassment? I forgave them, but to date I have never set foot in Zimbabwe since that incident, I am considering the same with S.A. There is a saying “the sun also shines on dog poo

    • Am with you my brother the Zimbabweans were really a nasty breed. We were once there on holidays in the 2000s, I tell those customs people are evil. They convinced us that it was okey to try and bring fish back to Zambia when we were entering Zimbabwe. Alas on our way back the story changed we were told we had to go to harare to get a license for an Eski of fish, this was in Kariba. We thought that was pointless and decided to drive back in and we gave the fish to some locals. How wicked can some people be honestly.

    • I’m Zimbabwean and has experienced nasty treatment from Zambian Police and customs officials when i pass through your country enroute to Tanzania. Must i then conclude that all Zambians are a nasty breed. Did you ever fear for your life during your visits to Zimbabwe, fearing ordinary local people or it was just the nasty treatment you got from the customs officials. for you parallel you experience with the arrogant customs official in zim to the situation in South Africa is not only unfair but also unfair

    • True my brother, the Zim customs officials were a nasty breed then, still are even today. It is an inherent arrogant system that was designed to save a few white masters who wanted to ensure that Zimbabwe is some kind of a “little England”. They treat us black Zimbabweans the same way they treated you even today. White people from any country are not treated that way. Its an inherently predudiced systems against all blacks. and for your information my brother so is your system. Your will be treated so badly by the Zambian police and customs officials in your own country that you will wonder why the white next to you who has been caught smuggling drugs into the country, is being treated like royalty, pampered with 5 treatment, yet you have done nothing wrong

    • A lot of Zambians migrated to Zimbabwe during the colonial days of both countries. They are still here today and have been intergrated into the Zim societies. As a result we have had to learn each other’s languages so i do understand a bit nasty words in some of your languages. “Zvima Zimbabwe zvabwera”, “ndiwagaru awa”. All this I have heard being referred to me. How different is this from being called a kwerekwere. All of us a guilt of name calling other nationalities. Noone is squeaky clean in this regard. What you are doing my Zambian brothers is just as arrogant as what the Zimbabweans were back then. Are you not just as arrogant to Malawians, Mozambiqueans. People who believe they are better off than their neighbour are arrogant

  12. My brothers Great Scholar Mushunfwa and Spellchek would be asking for too much if i were to request you to respond to my comments on my email [email protected]? Pardon me if you feel like I’m doing so but I would be greatfull if you can respond. I feel like we do not engage as much as we should so that we can learn from each. This forum affords us a opportunity for such engagement

  15. I am shocked by our High Commissioner to SA. No Zambian affected!! what measures have you put in place. Malawians are transporting their people back to Malawi. Suppose there is a dead Zambian, is he going to communicate to you.

    Sir, with all honest link up with other High Commissioners from Africa and engage the SA Govt to protect life and compensation for looted property.

    Mr President, if you read this, please fire this man. He has no foresight. He does not even know how many Zambians are in SA. if they beat Malawians, Zimbabweans, you think they will spare Zambians. They cannot even tell the difference between Zambians and Zimbabweans, let alone Malawians.

  16. May be the high commissioner is trying not to offend South Africa, their favorite destination for their medicals. Did he watch on youtube how the savages, in no hurry , with crowds cheering, casually butchered three foreigners, one of whom was a woman after undressing her, and then killed slowly by hitting her head repeatedly with heavy stones, on the street in CBD JHB with police driving by and doing nothing? He says Zambians are not affected, i.e. as long as there isn’t a Zambian among those reported dead. And isn’t there? Does the incompetent Zambian govt keep track of all Zambians living in RSA?

  17. Although many of us Zambians cannot really say we are all that surprised. This is their usual train of thought. Wait until you see Zambian blood flowing in the streets before you lift a finger to do something. That’s their M.O.

  18. Sad to read and see the S Africans killing fellow black Africans. After 1st hand experience, being. called Were jeered, the best is to stick around home, make the best out of it. These people will never stop. Global village is not known to these guys. The king zwelethini was in the fore front instigating this senseless brutal wave of killing & zuma is quite. South Africa has more to loose, coz if people stop going there for bizness, opt to go to China, too bad for them. They must not forget that We can hurt them where it hurts most by boycotting there bizness. The deafening silence exhibited by their big guys in SA govt is shocking. What is going to happen to SA living in other African countries? Let love lead in Jesus name, Amen!
