THE Immigration Department in Chirundu has arrested 23 Zimbabwean women suspected to be commercial sex workers for unlawful entry and stay in Zambia.
The 23 suspected commercial sex workers were nabbed on Sunday in various shanty townships which include Gabon, Apollo, and Chibakete where they had been renting small shacks locally known as ‘Mudadada’.

Others were found at Oasis and Auntie Lontia truck bays within Chirundu during the operation in which two Congolese, one Somali and two Zimbabwean men were also arrested for a similar offence.
Meanwhile, the Chipata regional immigration office on Monday arrested six Malawian women for unlawful stay in Zambia.

Immigration Department public relations officer Namati Nshinka said the six were also suspected to be engaged in commercial sex work.
Mr Nshinka said two Malawian men were deported through Mwami Border for unlawful entry.
The Lusaka regional immigration office last Saturday deported 23 Congolese from Zambia via Kasumbalesa Border Post.
In Kasama, the regional immigration office last Friday intercepted 14 Congolese and seven Burundese at a road block.

Thirteen of the 14 Congolese comprising four adults and nine minors, together with two Burundians, were deported on Saturday for using temporary passes beyond the permitted parameter.

“Arrangements to remove the remaining Congolese national and five Burundians are underway,” Mr Nshinka said in a statement released yesterday.
The Mufulira immigration office also arrested five Congolese nationals for unlawful entry.
