South Africa’s Democratic Alliance leader Mmusi Maimane was denied entry into Zambia for reasons unknown, when he landed in Zambia yesterday.


Maimane wanted to attend United Party For National Development Leader Hakainde Hichilema’s Treason Case This Morning.


His spokesperson Graham Charters said when Maimane arrived at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport at around 18:30 Hours Last Evening, there were members of the police and immigration police already waiting for him on the tarmac on the runway.


Charters said there was a stalemate between Maimane and authorities for about half an hour, while Maimane demanded to know why he was not allowed into the country.  


Charters said the authorities did not give any reason for the ill-treatment “and the blocking of a constitutional office bearer, of a fellow African state”.
