Zhang Jian, the association’s president, said his organization will work closely with the police and ensure that Chinese nationals doing business in Zambia abide by the country’s labor laws.

Chinese firms have fallen prey to attacks by criminals in Zambia in recent months.

Last week, the police shot dead five bandits who had attempted to rob a Chinese-owned company in capital, Lusaka. One Chinese also got injured in the robbery.

In November, three Chinese nationals died while three others sustained injuries when criminals broke into their living quarters at their company in Kitwe city in Copperbelt Province. The criminals got away with undisclosed amounts of money.

The attack prompted the Chinese Ambassador to Zambia Yang Youming to appeal to authorities to take necessary action to safeguard the Chinese community in the country. Enditem
