Miles Sampa shuts down a Chinese Restaurant for discriminating against Zambians

General News Miles Sampa shuts down a Chinese Restaurant for discriminating against Zambians

Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa this morning shut down a Chinese Restaurant in Lusaka’s Long acres area for discriminating against Zambians.

Mr Sampa who was in the company of his Director of Health Edgar Mulwanda closed indefinitely the Chinese LANTIAN restaurant in Longacres.

He told Journalists after closing down the business that the action was taken because the owners abrogated laws under the Food and Health Act namely selling products labeled in Chinese and not English as prescribed by law, Trading without a License from the Council and had expired Fire certificate.

Mr Sampa said the Council will move in on all Restaurants and other hospitality services especially of Chinese owned that are conducting business without proper documentation or in an unethical manner.

Latian restaurant was reported by Muvi TV yesterday for only allowing entrance to Chinese and denying Blacks for apparently Covid19 related reasons.

Mr Sampa said he strongly reprimanded the owner a Mr Tang on that Malpractice as well.

He said apartheid finished a long time ago in Lusaka after Zambia gained Independence in 1964.

Mr Sampa has urged all residents of Lusaka to whistle blow on any business or trading place exhibiting unethical practices saying the Council shall move in decisively with supersonic speed.

  1. Excellent quick action by our mayor. We do not tolerate discrimination in our country. Our friends in diaspora will still criticize this and yet in their countries abroad they are discriminated against daily

  2. Oh oh oh Sampa business partners of Chinese will remove you as mayor or you will not be adopted in any position next year. Touch not Chinese if you are truly Zambian. Chinese are our God parents. Sampa please reverse your decision now and ignore wrong things you see

  3. Eat your own Zambian food, it’s healthier and you don’t risk eating dog and bat meat. Why go to Chinese restaurant?

  4. Never take it seriously with PF officials, he is looking for another way of getting bribed.
    Believe me, you will soon hear that the restaurant is open after getting 10000 US dollars from the Chinese. Miles Sampa is broke. You don’t close the restaurants but fine or penalize them under the law. PF must go!

  5. This is one of the few actions I totally agree with the Mayor and applaud his action. I am sure the expired certificates and chinese labelling are a good legal way of closing them down but what drove the mayor there was the racism report. Chinese are actually more racist than white people, and they prefer to be with their own kind. They abuse and insult black people and it’s time they were taken through a crash course of civil rights…otherwise they will never be capable of being the global leader that they want/aspire to be….

  6. This demonstrates a nation has laws and morals to adhere to, well done Mayor Miles Sampa. Extend your inspection and closure of businesses abrogating our laws – distasteful to hear there is even discrimination in Zambia, worse by Chinese. Save KK from BP – honestly.

  7. Well done! In Nigeria a similar incident happened a few months ago, the Chinese restaurant in Lagos was immediately closed Apparently the Chinese restaurant in Lagos was also used as a strip- club and brothel by Chinese prostitutes in other rooms at the back of the restaurant

  8. @6 Muna..et al Please DON’T heap praise on this inept mayor and his confused and near moribund political party!! IF THEY WERE REALLY WORKING THESE RESTAURANT AND SOME SHOPS SHOULD CLOSED A LONG TIME AGO FOR SELLING THINGS WHICH ARE NOT LABELED IN ENGLISH OUR OFFICIAL LANGUAGE AND EMPLOYING CHINESE WHO DON”T SPEAK ENGLISH AND WHO DO JOBS THAT CAN BE DONE BY ZAMBIANS!! Where have they been all this time when all these wrongs have been happening?? I even tend to agree with @ 5 Madilu System, bcoz IF THE MAYOR IS SERIOUS HE SHOULD HAVE GONE WITH A LEGAL TEAM TO PREPARE A SOLID CASE FOR PROSECUTION! NOT THIS KNEE- JERK REACTION!!

    • My fellow blogger, certainly I agree with you, this is a case for legal minded persons. Things must be looked into another perspective. Does the mayor have powers to close the business on the point discrimination? The business and its owners are both separate entities, why not censure and chargeor penalize the owners rather than close the whole businesses. You will hear tomorrow the Chinese owners suing the LCC for unlawful closure of business. The Mayor know the weakness of Chinese and thereby taking advantage to get some bribes. PF must go!

  9. backpackers lodges, camping sites owned by Boers . have also been discriminating black Zambians, for many years. Same as Indians, ( ba Mwenye) with houses, apartments for rent, only rent out to fellow Indians, ”mwenyes”. Black Zambians there are not welcome.
    Arab families in Zambia that employ Zambians to work as maids or gardeners are abusive to Zambian women and men working for them, some women are tricked to go and work in Arab countries just to find themselves in real slavery once they arrive in Lebanon, Egypt, Saudi, etc..

  11. It is PF that facilitates this superiority complex of foreigners in Zambia ….

    When CK was harrangueing an Indian for taking a job that a Zambian could do we had the whole PF up in arms , even that ka Nathan Chanda organising a protest in favour of these foreigners……

    We are not advocating xenophobia but Zambians should be masters of their country ……..look what these same Chinese do to blacks in China ?

  12. As Zambians and Africans, we don’t need the Chinese or white people period. It is time Africans stopped being nice to a lot of these creatures. Most are not of God, but their father satan. They are satanic for no reason. They brought their evil from Europe and Asia filthy racist creatures. Stay blessed Africans stay blessed.

  13. Let us as Zambians work together. We don’t need these evil morons insulting our brothers and sisters on our home soil. Built businesses so a Zambian is employed and does not need these creatures.

  14. good move mr.Sampa, and fellow zambians please stop eating from chinese restaurants they don’t choose what to eat imagine products labeled in chinese mukalalya nabapushi

  15. Chinese are not trustworthy people. Our governments should lean towards the western superpowers because they are honesty. A friend who can’t tell you when you are wrong is not a trustworthy friend. And a person who disowns a friend for being corrected is heading for a crash. We disowned the west in preference to China because the later doesn’t ask us about governance issues. They are not good friends. Only time will tell.

  16. @ lets kick them out
    Yes and I’ve always said as Zambians we have enough resources to sustain ourselves and we can work together instead of depending on boers to open Lodges and chinese opening restaurants….we dont need useless and broke investors…Indians insult and mistreat Zambians every day…corruption by our leaders no wonder these foreigners take advantage of us…tomorrow Miles Sampa will be asking for bribes to reopen the restaurant

  17. Africans easily settle in Europe and North America. Its not so in China and India. These two nations have benefited more in Africa than any country but they still mistreat workers. When will Indians in Zambia begin to trust Zambians and give them respect? Check all Indian businesses in Zambia and compare the conditions of services with those belonging to Americans and Europeans. What kind of people are we who don’t learn anything from the past? If Chinese and Indians can’t respect us here immigration should restrict the number of new comers and deport all offenders.

    You are wrong and you are also part of the problem…why depend on the Western countries when we can start depending on ourselves…get rid of that slave mentality of yours….western Countries dont even have enough resources and yet we have plenty resources….western Countries just survive on TAX….and stolen natural resources….We have Pompwe gumu gumu Kaizar Zulu who thinks marrying a white woman is an achievement

  19. Job well done but then again, was it really supposed to be ba Mayor to handle this matter? was he not supposed to be delegating his juniors to handle matters such as this? I see a strong man syndrome in some of our leaders and time has since moved. Its only cheap minds that will be sold on these shenanigans – there are elections next year and I know its time to start positioning strategically, in fact I expect to see a lot of bullhorn like this.
    What is he teaching us the young and aspiring leaders?

    In back packer Lodges owned by boers even fellow blacks that work there discriminate against fellow blacks….even in white owned restaurants you find blacks that work there very nasty towards fellow blacks and they treat white customers with respect

  22. It’s so nice to see that GRZ is finally on the people’s side, close it n if possible let them go home…..totally unexceptable. I love the fact that you acted swiftly on this , wish I could say the same on the 48 spalas.

  23. no fire certificate and operating illegally under the same mayor that closed. meanwhile all this was happening under his watch. for how long has the restaurant been operating without the said permits? Was someone in the council secreting collecting this money for their personal use?

  24. AK

    Indians own the immigration department.
    Only broke Africans are targeted by immigration.

    Soon , very soon Zambia will be over run by Indians. The difference is Chinese find it difficult to work under cover while Indians are full of them under your covers.
    By the time you realise , you have millions of Indians.

  26. Job well done Miles.!!! Now sort out the mess in your house because that restaurant started its operations with fake papers from the city council. Let heads roll

  27. Officials should be going undercover as clients to these foreign Owned businesses to root out this evil vice. Discrimination in their countries ( even denying pregnant black women in their hospitals) , discrimination in our country n I guess they’ll discriminate again when our paths cross in heaven/ hell but to hell with them.

  28. On a serious note guys, has anyone seen Sampa of late? The guys is clearly going mad in the head. I swear he is not normal.

  29. Coming all the way from China to come and open a restaurant in Zambia…I blame our bandit leaders and bandit political party PF….

  30. This Matero boy Miles Sampa is working, he has fired some thieving chap at intercity, he has closed a racist restaurant, his rants are usually very sensible but of course the element of derangement in his head is visible, maybe divorce issues, maybe that expulsion from the party before the reconciliation affected him. I think he can work, he should just avoid those vima funny videos from his home, they do a lot of damage to this poor soul

  31. Well done Miles Sampa, but wait a minute!! What have the Health Officers been doing all along? Is reprimanding the owner the equivalent of racially abusing a Zambian patron? Shouldn’t this case by handled by the Police and the Immigration officers? Was Sampa bribed to drop the case of racial abuse and go for the lower case of expiry date for food? Just thinking aloud and trying to cross the t and dot the i.

  32. How I wish Miles can be this swift also PF Anti-Tonga Tribalists. Tribalism is worse form of discrimination!

  33. I see posts comparing Chinese with Western powers. How the hell would a black man not see the evil the west has committed on the black man? It’s just a slave mentality to compare masters. The truth is Emancipate yourselves from all masters! I can’t believe that a black man thinks the west is better than China or anyone save ourselves. Is it because they are a familiar devil?

  34. Send them back , the more of them we have around , the longer this covid19 will be in our midst as their kind will keep coming n going between the two countries. Let them go.

  36. This is the fooolishness and weakness we have right here. Mayor Miles Sampa, reprimanded the restaurant owner and proceeded to give him a lecture on how ” apartheid finished a long time ago .” There lies the weakness of this mayor right here. It’s not that the Chinese don’t know that racism and discrimination are illegal in Zambia…they do it because THEY DON”T RESPECT ZAMBIAN LEADERS. In other words they’re outrightly insulting you with a middle finger. What you should’ve done is to have them arrested, heavily fined, and then thrown out of the country. That’s how foreigners know that you’re serious and get to respect you. How can a Chinese foreigner be calling a Zambian, “a foreigner” in his own country? Or is Zambia now a full-blown Chinese colony? And when the world…

  37. This is what we need, young and energetic Mayor with quick turnaround time. Chinese must not be allowed to bring racism to our country. Let them go back to their country if they don’t want blacks. Racism is totally ancient thinking and acting!!

  38. Mile Sampa, Thanks for moving in fast but that is not enough, those chinese have to be deported because that kind of mentality can not change, I miss Kaunda, because those guys could have been given 24 hours to pack and go, just shutting their place and leaving it at that is a sign of weakness, let us send a strong massage out their, where is handsome tiger?

  39. How can you apologise to a Zambian foreigner? Chambia belongs to China!
    Zambians, learn to appreciate your own things. You leave Zambian women and marry foreigners. You don’t want to shop from Zambian shops and you are always the first at foreign owned shops. How can you be respected? You are a lost people fit to be called foreigners on your own land!

  40. Good move,but it’s not enough.Their cat eating behinds need to be deported ASAP.That’s how they will know that they can’t come here and get away with a bunch of bullcrap.I bet you that they know better than to go to South Africa,Nigeria and other African countries with that crap mentality. They will probably be blown up. Just watch,these fools will be back in business in less than a month.It’s a shame.

  41. Its a shame that a strong fall weak so easy .shame we’re called black woman and black man by every race, do they apologise “No”,but here go a black trying to stand for his people,got corrected by a china man whom is a foreigner.

  42.
