Minister of justice Given Lubinda has condemned politicians championing xenophobia against Chinese and other investors in the country.
Mr. Lubinda says it is important that Zambians realize that the country cannot work in isolation but needs cooperation with other countries.
He says the world has become a global village and that Zambia needs to work with various nations for the interest of Zambians.
Mr. Lubinda says many Zambians are living in the Diaspora and need to be protected and given the necessary support.
The minister was speaking during the 2018 temple fair of the Chinese spring festival in Lusaka.
And Chinese Ambassador to Zambia Yang Youming said his government is committed to working with the Zambian government to enhance development and investment.
Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili is alleged to have told his supporters to stone any Chinese National in Luanshya because they are employing people outside the district.
