Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Major General Jackson Miti says the Mission will early next year start receiving and processing applications for dual citizenship for Zambians living in that country.

Major General Miti said the process would facilitate the acquisition of Zambian citizenship for Zambians wishing to do so.

He was speaking at a Welcome Gala Dinner organised in his honour by the Zambia Association in South Africa (ZASA) at Scarlet Ribbon, Kempton Park, Johannesburg.

Ambassador Miti said challenges that prevented the process had now been resolved.

He added that the Mission would also resume immigration clinics in South Africa’s major cities to sensitive Zambians on consular matters.

He said the High Commission would engage cooperating partners to assist in mobilizing resources for the immigration clinics.

He said it was one of the Mission’s agenda to ensure that Zambians were given assistance.

Major General Miti further commended the Association for doing a good job in helping unite Zambians in South Africa.

And ZASA President Ferdinand Simanya said despite the Association receiving reports of hurdles by some Zambians to acquire work permits, entry and resident visas, his Association was generally happy with the welfare of many Zambians in South Africa.

Mr Simanya said since 2016 when he was elected into office, unity of purpose among Zambians had been achieved.

He said the Zambian culture and heritage has also been shared.

The event was punctuated by performances from popular artist Afunika and many others.

    Thanks

    • Aba bafika.la have made duo citizenship like a development agenda. This mission made this announcement in 2016. Even put it on their website. When we go there to apply they started excuses. Nothing clear in explanations. It makes one wonder exactly how Zambians think, & you wonder y we got other countries citizenships in the intreme

    • This is garbage. If you are a Zambian citizen that has been granted citizenship by a country that does not require you to denounce your Zambian citizenship, it’s done. Don’t let these criminals that cannot even police their own Kaiser Zulus tell you any different. Bunch of incompetent men and women we elected.

    • Chenda

      I would not trust kapoyongo with my details……..people in Zambia get hacked for protesting against corruption

    • Iwe John that duel citizenship you are waiting for yakulwisha. You will fight and fight. Fwebanobe we are going for dual citizenship.

  2. While some of us are trying to revoke zambian citizenship under failed pf who in their right mind is trying to get zambian citizenship and forever be cursed in poverty?

  3. Guys don’t rash into this PF project .You can have dual citizenship without involving them .All the want is ” UKULYA MULI EVERYTHING AND LEAVE YOU CRIPPLED “. What a bunch of crooks .Why forcing people to register?Another fund raising venture by a failed state.”A KULYENI FYE MUMABALA YENU” . We are not PF property. Shame on you

  5. Honestly, a person of “sound mind” shouldn’t believe any of this “cra.p”
    Having been born a Zambian, why would you let PF thieves sell you another Zambian citizenship??? Even ba kaboke are smarter than this! Thus if you have obtained another nationality which doesn’t force you to give up Zambian citizenship, just renew your passport & Reg, NO ONE WILL EVER ASK YOU whether you are DUAL – unless you just want to show off, in that instant, I really have no sympathy for whatever the Kaponya’s of PF deliver upon you!!

    • Good point, dual citizenship is for those people who like showing off that that they hold another passport when they arrive at the port of entry, you even find them joining the foreigners line. Just renew your Zambian citizenship and fly to Zambia with your Zambian passport.

  6. Major General Miti said the process would facilitate the acquisition of Zambian citizenship for Zambians wishing to do so.

    If you are living abroad means you have lost your Zambian Citizenship?

  7. I don’t trust him Meat/Miti wait next year it’s just some days not a month you will hear his stories will different
