29.05.2024 – A combined team of Immigration and Police Officers in Chinsali have apprehended twelve (12) undocumented Ethiopians aged between 14 and 26 for failing to appear before the nearest Immigration Officer on entry. They were nabbed yesterday, 28th May, 2024 as they wandered the bushes of Mutambe Akasuba Area in Shiwang’andu District at around 11:40 hours. The Chinsali Immigration Office was alerted to the presence of the Ethiopians by alert members of the public. An abandoned Mitsubishi Pajero Vehicle Registration number BAG 4282 was later discovered in the area.

Preliminary investigations suggest that they may have been transported from Nakonde in the Mitsubishi Pajero by unknown persons and were heading to Lusaka before they were abandoned in the bush. It is believed that there could be more suspects apart from the driver of the Pajero yet to be nabbed and, therefore, the search for them has continued.  The Ethiopians have since been taken to Chinsali pending prosecution.
