Zambian victims, including children, of South African Xenophobic violence return home

Twenty Zambians, affected by the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa, have been repatriated back home, Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Leslie Mbulu disclosed. Mbulu said the 20, who included six children, were part of the 43 Zambians who had registered for repatriation, adding the repatriation would continue until all the registered displaced Zambians were sent back home. “We have bought tickets at R650 for bus to transport those who are being repatri ated and we are giving each one R100 out-of-pocket allowance. The bus left Johan n esburg Wednesday,” the state-run Zambia Daily Mail quoted Mbulu as saying Friday . Chimange Mpunga, who survived the attacks in Johannesburg’s Doorfontein, said he was not ready for repatriation because he would find it difficult to start afresh.
