The Impounded Trucks

The Zambia High Commission in South Africa has observed with concern reports of some Zambian Truck Drivers being threatened with violence following a planed National wide work stoppage by the South African Truck Drivers.

According to the information made available to the Zambian Mission, some Zambian Truck Drivers have faced physical attacks and threats from their South African counterparts who are fighting for better conditions of services from their employers.

So far, a notice from unidentified Association alleging to represent South Africa Truck Drivers has been issued calling for nationwide work stoppage among South Africa drivers from 2nd September.

It is with this background that the Mission would like to advise all Zambian Truck Drivers who are scheduled to travel to South Africa on the mentioned date not to do so until security is guaranteed.

The Mission has also advised Zambian Truck Drivers who will enter or would be working in South Africa on the 2nd September 2019 to park their trucks in safe and secure designated places in order avoid loss of life and property.

The Mission has in the past engaged the Department of International Relations DIRCO on the safety of Zambian Truck drivers and assured the Mission of tight security measures that the South African Government was putting in place.

This is contained in a statement issued to the media by First Secretary for Press and Public Relations at the Zambian High Commission in South Africa Naomi Nyawali.

  1. The problem with Zambian is that they are cowards who do not exercise and so they have weak bodies with pot bellies. Here in UK the men are strong tell and fit. I have also joined the gym with my boyfriend and am making gains.


  2. They will not listen as they have to
    Think about the belly.These problems are common in South Africa. How will they survive if they
    Don’t work and that is the only work?


  3. Sounding a warning is not instructing one not to. Its take it or leave it but do not say you were not warned. Mind you, you only live once and alertness in the way we conduct our day to day dealings is very important hence the warning because also the fact that not all drivers know whats on the ground in South Africa today. In Bemba they say “ukwebele imfwa ya noko mutanshi”. In English” he who is fore warned is fore armed” The dead do not work!


  4. South Africans, white and black are the most ridiculous on the whole continent. How do you live in a prosperous nation, and always want to resort to violence to solve issues?


    • I wonder why Zambians import food from South Africa while they have more fertile land and water than SAns. Did you know South Africa import bulk fresh water through an artificial river to run the most sophisticated economy in Africa from Lesotho?
