‘Pantless’ South African dancer deported from Zambia


Zambian government, in line with its vow not to allow controversial South Africa dancer, Zodwa Wabantu performs within its territory on Saturday sent her back to her country.
The promoter, who packaged the event, confirmed this on Saturday saying she was deported as soon as she got off her flight which landed at the that morning at the Kenneth Kaunda international airport.
The ‘Pantless’ sensation was billed to perform at an album launch, later that day in Lusaka, the capital city of the Southern African nation.
 “I can confirm that Zodwa has been deported back to South Africa by the immigration department,” her promoter Lucky Munakampe told AFP, adding no reasons were given for her deportation.
Immigration department officials were not reachable on their phones for comment.
Zambia’s religious affairs minister Godfridah Sumaili told AFP last week that Zodwa would not be allowed to perform in the country.
“Zambia is a Christian nation where morality and ethics have to be followed. We don’t expect a woman to dance without underwear,” Sumaili said.
Zambia is a largely conservative country where the majority of people practice Christianity.
