Zambia Deports Controversial SA Pantless Dancer Zodwa Wabantu

Zambian immigration authorities Saturday deported South African entertainer Rebeca Libram,  known as Zodwa Wabantu, local media reported.

Wabantu, who was due to appear as star guest at an album launch in Lusaka, was reportedly detained upon arrival at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport at 21:00 hours Friday night.

Zambian authorities did not state reasons for her deportation, but the government had earlier said Wabantu would not be granted permission to enter the country to perform because that would be contrary to national morals.

That statement from the National Guidance and Religious Affairs Minister Godfridah Sumaili was followed by the National Arts Council who told the promoter, Sunset Sound Production, that she could only attend as a guest because allowing her to perform was against “public interest and national values”.

“I have just confirmed with South African Airways that she was deported and left for South Africa aboard the 07:20hrs flight (today),” Sunset Sound proprietor Lucky Cheelo Munakampe was quoted as saying by a private daily, The Mast.
