[SIZE=7]Lusaka City Mayor Miles B Sampa Shuts Down A Chinese Barber shop For Racism[/SIZE]

Three days after he indefinitely closed Lantian restaurant in Lusaka’s Longacres area for discriminating against Zambians, Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa has closed Chinese owned Angels Barbershop at Arcades Shopping Mall for discriminating against blacks.

The Barbershop was also found displaying their prices in Chinese contrary to the Food and Health Act.

We had a tip off from a whistle blower who took his son to cut hair but was told K300 as price just to put him off. When he agreed to pay, they then changed their mind and said the Barbershop was actually closed and had to leave”, said the Mayor.

Mr Sampa said when he went to Angels Barbershop for a fact finding mission on 21st March 2020, he found a closed sign at the door but upon entering, he noticed a Chinese having his haircut.

“They did not recognize us as we had a mask on. We pretended wanting to have our haircut and they said ‘We Closed’ said Mr Sampa who upon inspecting their price board noticed also that nearly everything was labeled in Chinese and not English as prescribed by the Food and Health Act.

Mr Sampa has since retrieved Council licenses from them and closed them indefinitely and a formal sign closure notice from the Council has since been sent to them.

“We are happy to support 100% all law abiding Investors”, he added.
Mr Sampa has vowed not to condone any Investor that discriminates customers or employees based on their color of skin or pricing in other foreign languages other than English which is the constitutionally prescribed official language for Zambia.

He has encouraged residents not to hesitate to inform him if mistreated by any investor including local investors.

I find it absurd that this kind of stuff happens in Africa. They are coming to descriminate against us in our own countries while they are kicking Africans out of their apartments in china and refusing to serve Africans in their supermarkets with the tacit approval of their govt

I applaud this Mayor

I applaud this mayor too. Thank God to cellphones and video cameras. They give proper evidence

Since Africans tend to be discriminated against alot, I think African countries should have institutions that are tasked to deal with this kind of crap. Remember there was a case in kenya with a chinese restaurant in kilimani area. And this is one that was lucky enough to make it to the news and therefore action was taken. Imagine how many go unreported.

Tushome washina

This is actually what convinces me that Africans have a problem. The fact that someone can come here and open a business and have the nerves to discriminates against locals. Forget about discrimination or closing the business.
The thought “I’m going to Africa and open a business that will not be serving Africans”.
It’s not about them being evil, it’s about us letting them get away with these things and the way tunajibeba

The Chinese barber is an idiot. He should have just said he does not know how to cut African hair.

The way things work, its very possible the Zambian president calls mayor Miles Sampa and tells him to go vv slow on the Chinese.
They now own the Zambia national power company.

Na Sampa atatii.
