Home Affairs Minister, Mr. STEPHEN KAMPYONGO has again warned that foreign nationals working in Zambia that they will be deported to their Countries once apprehended for breaking the law.
On Thursday, last week police in Ndola arrested about 31 Chinese nationals for various offences which include immigration irregularities.
Information obtained by 5FM RADIO suggests that some of the Chinese nationals were implicated in illegal acquisition of mineral products.
And Mr. KAMPYONGO stated that they will not tolerate those coming into the Country using investment permit and in the end become criminals.
The Minister was speaking when he met management at Konkola Copper Mines yesterday in Chingola to get first hand information on reports of illegal miners besieging the mine, attacking employees and damaging property.
