Pan-Africanist Professor PLO Lumumba has been denied entry into Zambia

Zambia has denied entry and deported Kenyan lawyer and renowned pan-Africanist Professor Patrick Loch Otieno Lumumba.

Prof. Lumumba was sent back by Immigration officials shortly after he landed at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka today.

He was due to deliver a public lecturer on China-Africa relations on Saturday night at Eden University.

The topic for his public lecture was “Africa in the age of China influence and global geo-dynamics.”

Chief Government Spokesperson Dora Siliya confirmed that Prof. Lumumba was deported because he posed a security threat.

“Govt thru immigration dept has denied entry into Zambia of Prof. Patrick Lumumba, a Kenyan national due to security considerations. Immigration is a security wing working with agencies within and beyond Zambia,” Ms Siliya said.

Zambia has in the recent last deported leading figures such as of SA’s leading opposition leader Mmusi Maimane, dancer Zodwa Wabantu and Zimbabwe’s Tendai Biti.
