Kenyan law professor and Pan-Africanist, Patrick Loch Otieno (PLO) Lumumba denied entry into Zambia to lecture on China-Africa relations.

Popular Pan-Africanist speaker PLO Lumumba was denied entry into Zambia last weekend by immigration authorities who were acting on orders of Dora Siliya, the Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services and Chief Government Spokesperson.

She said in a tweet that PLO Lumumba was denied entry “due to security considerations”. He was sent back after he landed at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka where he was due to deliver a public lecturer at Eden University under the topic: “Africa in the age of China influence and global geo-dynamics.”

The government’s decision was clearly a move to end the protests that were ongoing at the time against the growing Chinese presence in the country and the fear that China will soon control the affairs of the country.
