There is no single Zambian student on scholarship stranded in China-Wina

VICE-PRESIDENT Inonge Wina has told Parliament that the Zambian embassy in Beijing and the Chinese government are working out ways to help 500 Zambian students that are stranded in China.

Mrs Wina said yesterday that the stranded students were duped by fraudulent sponsors, and she warned parents to be wary of such fraudsters who claim they can sponsor students in China.

She was responding to Mangango member of Parliament Rodgers Lingweshi (PF), who asked, during Vice-President’s Question Time, what government is doing on reports of stranded Zambian students in China.

Mrs Wina said the stranded students are those on self-sponsorship and were duped that they would be sponsored by fraudsters.

“These students are stranded because they were expelled from colleges and universities for non-payment of fees. Some are flouting immigration rules,” she said.

Mrs Wina said most students were victims of phony organisations that had asked them to make certain payments of money.
She said no Zambian student on government sponsorship is stranded in China.

Zambia’s Ambassador to China Winnie Chibesakunda told the Daily Mail in an interview this week that over 500 Zambians are stranded in China for failure to pay full school fees, while five others are in detention for flouting immigration rules.

“The number of expulsions, arrests and deportations of Zambian students in China has been on the upswing since 2014 and is now approaching crisis levels,” Ms Chibesakunda had said.

Official estimates from the Chinese Government indicate that there are about 1,800 Zambian students in China.
“Mr Speaker, this is a very serious matter. I actually jotted down some points.

There is no single Zambian student on scholarship stranded in China.

Those stranded are the ones on self-sponsorship,” Mrs Wina told Parliament yesterday.

She said the Zambian government, in collaboration with China, is sponsoring 161 students and none of them are stranded.

Meanwhile, Minister of Higher Education Michael Kaingu says President Lungu is a God-fearing man whom Zambians must vote for again this year so that he can complete constructing the universities.

“Zambia has a God-fearing President. In October last year on the 18th, he called for prayers so that we can have rain.
Now it is raining Mr Speaker and I am sure the Minister of Agriculture is happy.

“So I appeal to Zambians to pray for President Lungu so that he can be voted for again,” Dr Kaingu said.

  1. You are right Madame, it is Zambian diplomats in China which are spreading lies?

    Same as there is no Israeli consultancy company “Timor Consulting” on PF/GRZ payroll?

    It is either case of acute senility or politically induced 1mbecility? Which one Madame?

    • I am not surprised why this demented geriatric is Edgar’s vice and will be his running mate for the Aug 11 elections. She is just as clueless as he is.

    • The Human hair boutiques must also fashion artificial hair that matches the age of the wearer. I thought she was in her early seventies?

    • The Mother of All Liars & Liar of all mothers is at it again!! Denying the undeniable!! This women, has been cursed by PamaFi!! It is like acancer to her, BUT SHE LOVES IT SO DEARLY, only that “Dola Taangalala” & Mumbi “Firi” might upset her cart!!

  2. The Veep job description must have contained the words ‘deny at all costs’ coz whenever a denial is needed the Veep always has one ready. Careful not to over use it. One day you will be denying ever having been Veep…

  3. I had respect for this bitch before she dribbled PF convention and propelled Loadshedding Chakolwa Lungu.

  4. Quote “Meanwhile, Minister of Higher Education Michael Kaingu says President Lungu is a God-fearing man whom Zambians must vote for again this year so that he can complete constructing the universities.”

    This is the most farcical, illogical, nonsensical and unbelievably f00lish statement yet to come from Kaingu. This man is the enemy of progress.
    But again, religious people, Christians in particular are the easiest to manipulate and brainwash.

  5. …that’s were we need investigate journalism here…the ambassador says this the Veep says that…irrespective of the sponsors…the fact is that Zambian students are stranded which automatically becomes govt concern and to some extent govt responsibility…

    • ….when there was a terror threat at that Egypt pleasure resort…UK govt had to send planes on govt expense to evacuate its citizens despite having gone there on a private trip…..

    • @ Scrutinizerer

      You are right. But remember that UK government has given us POA, mind you, they have amended that legislation long, long time ago.

  6. Kaingu are you sure Kadansa is god fearing. The bum tried that ruse. Its not worked for him now he’s gone for outright brutality the Mugabe style.
    How do you have an idyot like this for Minister of Higher Education. I don’t think properly trained people like Dr John Phiri or Dr Kasonde will make such a ridiculous statement.

  7. Inonge Wina that is a shame that you can not say any sense,we don’t need to know about the relatives you sponsored,we want to hear how the stranded students are managing and when they are coming back home,they should be assisted to come back home,because regardless of how they went they are still Zambians.

  8. Thanks Fridah, thanks Scrutinizerer this old lady should be ashamed of herself, the Zambian Govt should come in quickly to assist all of them regardless of how they got there! Awe sure.
