Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo has directed security personnel at all border entry points to closely monitor the conduct of illegal money changers.

Mr. Kampyongo says the Ministry of Home Affairs has received complaints that illegal money dealers at border points are harassing tourists visiting Zambia by forcing the visitors to transact.

He was speaking when he toured the Victoria Falls border post between Zambia and Zimbabwe in Livingstone.

Mr. Kampyongo said government will not allow illegal activities that dent the image of Zambia and negatively affect the country’s tourism industry.

He promised that the Ministry of Home Affairs will put in place measures to increase manpower at all borders to get rid of illegal activities.

And Mr. Kampyongo has appealed to people to celebrate the festive season responsibly.

The Home Affairs Minister said all law enforcement agencies will be on high alert for those who want to break the law with impunity.

  1. I am very impressed with stature of the Inspector -General of Police, Kakoma Kanganja. He is very well built, looks very good in his Combat fatigues and looks like a proper cop-boss. Because I don’t live in Zambia, I can only hope that he is as good a Police Chief as he looks. Good luck , IG.

  2. This Minister is talking about things he has very little knowledge about. The parallel currency market by its very nature is private and secret and is self regulating. The Police cannot police and regulate a black market. U therefore cannot police a currency parallel market. The Minister should expend his energy in policing formal markets. Parallel currency matters are solved by market forces. This is an area better left to the Ministry of Finance and Bank of Zambia. It looks like Edward’s Ministers have no idea about their roles or Division of Labour.Maybe they need some induction to appreciate their Ministerial mandates.

  3. Too late! Already dented with the previous Minister of Tourism and Arts we had to the recent one who is a quiet mouse including the permanent secretary. This tourism case is a part of them and they remain quiet about it. How can we forget the racism from The Horseshoe restaurant they have failed to investigate and do a press conference. All of them are ignorant fools who need to lose their jobs.
