The department of immigration in Zambia has today temporarily refused to clear Former Archbishop Emmanuel Milingo to leave the country for South Korea.
In a statement today, Department public relations officer Namati Nshinka revealed that this occurred at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport.
Mr. Nshinka said the former Archbishop was in the company of his South Korean wife when Immigration Officers stopped him from boarding an Ethiopian Airline Flight at around noon.
Mr. Nshinka explained that the department of immigration is just keeping in line with its mandate of facilitating and regulating the movement of persons into and out of the country.
He however disclosed that the decision to deny the former Archbishop exit is based on confidential information received by the Department from his immediate family members.
“Effectively, we have instituted investigations into the matter.” Mr. Nshinka said.
