Kidero, Koffi banned from setting foot in Zambia
Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero is the latest victim to be banned from Zambia after Congolese Rhumba Maestro Koffi Olomide suffered the same fate.
This comes after a social media storm In Zambia that saw Zambians demand the cancellation of the scheduled performance of the rhumba star at the Agriculture and Commercial Show in Lusaka.
Zambians on social media also demanded for Kidero to be banned from their country after Kenyans in Lusaka pointed out his assault case against Nairobi Women Representative Rachael Shebesh.
Below are statements for the two cases.
Following the unfortunate incident of deportation of Congolese musician Koffi Olomide from Nairobi, Kenya over an alleged assault incident, the Zambian Government has banned the musician from Zambia.
After the development, the Zambian government has also banned Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero from Zambia over a past assault case facing him after he slapped women representative Rachael Shabesh
The decisions take effect immediately.
