Headlines 79 Zambians evacuated from Ukraine arrive home

About 79 Zambians who were evacuated from Ukraine after the Russian invasion have arrived back home.

Some 16 Zambians have opted to remain in Europe after changing their minds at the last minute.

The Zambians mostly students touched down Tuesday night at ZAF Airbase in Lusaka and were deceived by Foreign Affairs Minister Stanley Kakubo and other government officials.

“I am so pleased to announce the arrival of the first students to be evacuated from Ukraine via Poland. The students arrived safely this evening,” Mr. Kakubo announced on Facebook

“As previously advised, local Covid rules will be followed so the students will be in quarantine for 48 Hours before they are allowed to join their families, during this time they will also undergo counseling,” he said.

Mr Kakubo thanked Zambians for the patience exhibited and said the nation will be updated on the remaining few students.

  1. Surely good news. Now the New Dawn government would do well to call in the Russian ambassador and tell him off about the Putin invasion into Ukraine.

  2. LT do your spell check and proofing first you state ” were deceived by Foreign Affairs Minister Stanley Kakubo and other government officials.”
    yes its true most govt officials deceive us but i never knew they admit it, then you go on to say on the caption on the bottom photo that he is the minister of Home affairs welcoming 95 people , is he not minister of Foreign affairs as you say in the beginning of the story and only 79 arrived????
    By the way how did they get home and on which airline and who paid for it???

  3. Why do they still have to quarantine? Most people have had vaccines, at least in Ukraine and other European countries.
    Well done to the government on this score.
    What, if any, are the plans from the ministry of Education to ensure that these students continue their education? Some of them were in their last years of medical study. Most students in Ukraine study medicine, engineering and Data Sciences, highly demanded skills. Should we force Russia to educate them?

  4. I Feel for these kids. HH ensure continuity with their studies. Putin has disrupted a lot of lives unnecessarily. The images coming out of Ukraine and you want to cry over some, “Russia’s been good to Zambia?”

  5. Some 16 Zambians have opted to remain in Europe. Who advised them to remain in Europe, and which European country is allowing option if your home country has offered to evacuate all its nationals and without any valid reason you create personal options. Some will become destitute in Europe and Europeans will view it as the home country as irresponsible. Zambians should be sensible now PF is gone fore ever.

  6. Is this something to celebrate? This should be the expected bare minimum from a government. You even start celebrating things that are owed to you all in the name of bally bally fuseke
