Zambian NGO accuses Zambians who are allegedly harbouring suspected former Democratic Republic of Congo soldiers

Real Life Matters Zambia, a NGO looking into the plight of vulnerable children in society, has castigated some Zambians allegedly harbouring suspected former Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) soldiers.

The organisation claims that some of the soldiers are reportedly terrorising small-scale farmers in Mufulira’s Mupena farming settlement and are also marrying Zambian school children, some as young as nine years old.

Mupena Middle Basic School head teacher, Douglas Chama, revealed that 10 pupils from the school have already been married off and taken to DRC and that the female pupils’ population at the learning institution is reducing at a fast rate.
