ZEMA has charged Silverest Garden Housing in Chongwe and two of its employees, Hu Xinqiuo and Tan Futian for contravening the Environmental Management Act No. 12 of 2011 (EMA) and its subsidiary legislation.
The Company and the two employees have been charged for unlawful discharge of a pollutant into the environment and failure to comply with an environmental order issued by ZEMA relating to discharge of effluent.
The two employees who had been detained at Chelston Police in Lusaka will appear in Court soon.
ZEMA Spokesperson Ireen Chipilu said the agency remains committed to ensuring that all approved projects operate within the provisions of the environmental law and any other relevant laws.
Good , now arrest the Chinese buyers of mukula , they are encouraging deforestation……chinese don’t care about their environment , Zambians have to on guard…
Ba Edgar said he will arrest anyone tempering with Chinese Nationals.
Did State House ok that classic case?
Immediately i saw headline, i thought it is industrial smog, but what the faecal is that they released on zambian soil?
Nostradamas so there’s no difference between instigating violence against the Chinese and Chinese committing offenses.
Touch not Lungu’s Chinese!
A second look at the pic, boy look at the jovial mood these arresting officers are in, the arrested are indeed protect species.
Silverest – is it a Grave Yard?
why only two? an agreement was signed with a company – the company is at fault. These are scapegoats and they were probably prisoners in china anyway
These morons couldnt be bothered to build a sewer treatment plant the directly discharged sewer straight into the river.
Not to worry your chola boy in State House will release!!
LOL – affluent. Were they arrested for being rich or dirty?
LT, I’m sure you mean effluent.
The Chinese waste nothing even faeces are useful. Just look at the way they live 20 people in a two bedroom house mixed male and female.
What’s wrong with males and females living under one roof? You dirt minded chap.
Ule I kala fye HH’S lackey
What kind of reporting is this?
LT is not fluent in proper English, ati “affluent”
Having said that ,Zambians should also be charged especially in places where we saw photos of vast pollution that brought cholera.
Am also wondering why zema can’t take water and sewerage companies to court for blocked sewer pipes in various townships, these pics look like a daily scenery in some komboniz.
They should be slapped with a jail sentence so that would-be offenders learn a lesson. After dumping fake products in our country now they are also dumping effluent. What do they take us for?
Affluent or effluent? One is about wealth, the other about liquids
Well done Zambian authorities.
