The Department of Immigration early this week deported Congolese musician Tshite Mukenge, popularly known as Mumba Yachi

In a statement, Immigration public relations officer Namati Nshinka says Mumba was deported on Tuesday because his presence and conduct in Zambia were likely to be a danger to peace and good order.

 

Mr Nshinka says Mumba Yachi was deported under a warrant signed by the Home Affairs Minister as there were reasonable grounds to believe that his presence and conduct in Zambia were likely to be a danger to peace and good order.

 

This follows his conviction by a Lusaka Magistrates court on Monday on two counts of knowingly making a representation he knew to be false when he obtained a Zambian passport and making representation he knew to be false for purposes of obtaining a Green Zambian National Registration Card (NRC).

 

Mumba was earlier fined K10, 000 on two counts but in the turn of events, he was later deported back to the Democratic Republic of Congo.

 

And Zambia association of Musicians President Njoya Tembo yesterday confirmed that Mumba has been deported through Mukambo border Post.

Mr Tembo disclosed that Mumba is currently in Mukambo and enjoying good health stating that the singer understands the current situation he is in.
