The Ministry of Home Affairs has deported a Rwandese priest based at Lundazi Parish indentified as Fr.Viateur Banyangandora aged 40 to his country of origin for violating the laws of this country.
Minister of Home Affairs, Edgar Lungu has confirmed the deportation of Fr. Banyangandora.
“Fr. Banyangandora’s conduct was found to be a danger to peace and good order in Zambia contrary to Section 39(2) of the Immigration and Deportation Act, No. 18 of 2010.” Mr Lungu said
Mr Lungu disclosed that the priest who was picked and brought to Lusaka on Monday by a team of Immigration Officers for interviews, was deported to Rwanda on Wednesday.
Mr Lungu said that “Fr. Banyangandora was a holder of Employment Permit No. 008955 issued on 27th November, 2006 when he entered the country.”
Mr Lungu stated that government would like to warn those who violate laws of the land to desist from doing so as the law will visit them.
He said as minister he will not sit idle by seeing the culture of anarchy prevail and become the order of the day in the country because, he was charged with the responsibility of ensuring that law and order in the country is maintained.
