THE Immigration Department on Friday last week arrested 27 suspected Zimbabwean sex workers  at Katete Guest House in Chawama Township, Lusaka.
The  27 were arrested in the early hours on Friday because they had no proper documentation.
According to a statement issued by Immigration Department public relations officer Namati Nshinka, a suspected prohibited immigrant who was claiming to be Zambian and working at the same guest house was also arrested.
Mr Nshinka said two Zambian security officers at the guest house were apprehended for wilfully obstructing immigration officers in the due execution of their duties contrary to the Immigration laws.
The arrest of the Zimbabwean women came barely 20 days after the arrest and removal of 79 others arrested in Lusaka and Chirundu.
“It is apparent that some of those arrested during the operation were among those who were removed 20 days ago,” Mr Nshinka said.
On the same evening 16 Egyptians were arrested at house number 20135, New Munali for trading without permits.
Preliminary investigations have revealed that the carpet traders’ days as visitors were exhausted as far back as in 2013. The officers found carpets in two of the vehicles parked at their premises.
Others arrested include seven Chinese in Kamwala trading area for abrogating the provisions of their permits by engaging in occupations not stipulated on their permits.
Two Congolese men were also arrested in Zingalume for unlawful stay.
And a 25-year-old man of Chipakila Village in Chief Kambwali’s area in Nchelenge was hit by a vehicle between Thursday evening and Friday 06:30 hours yesterday on Mbereshi-Nchelenge Road at Chipakila Village. Luapula Province Police Commissioner Malcolm Mulenga confirmed the incident.
