A Chinese restaurant in Lusaka was closed by the local authorities after denying the entry to a local resident.
The accusations came after a Zambian citizen was denied entry due to “being a foreigner.”
After the incident was brought up by a national television, Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa ordered the closure of the establishment.
The mayor said that “Chinese-owned hospitality services are conducting business without proper documentation or in an unethical manner.”
“Apartheid finished a long time ago in Lusaka after Zambia gained independence in 1964,” the mayor added.
