The Immigration Officers responded to a call from the owner of the house, who discovered the foreign nationals in her house, which she had rented out to a Zambian woman currently only known as Doreen Mwanza.

She became concerned when Mukulama, the caretaker, denied her access to the house, prompting her to peep through the window.

At that point, she saw the foreign nationals and immediately informed Immigration Officers, who rushed to the scene.

Mukulama is currently detained pending court appearance, while the eight Ethiopians and six Somalis are at Mwembeshi Correctional Facility pending further immigration formalities as Mwanza remains at large.

“We wish to warn perpetrators of transnational organised crimes such as human trafficking and smuggling to desist from these grave crimes as they will be arrested,” Malambo said.

The Department is determined and shall continue to work closely with other law enforcement agencies to bring perpetrators to book
