Traditional healers arrested for offering false remedies

0

THE Department of Immigration yesterday arrested 30 illegal immigrants, including traditional healers that have been making unsubstantiated claims of magical healing powers in the media.

 

Immigration public relations officer Namati Nshinka said in Lusaka yesterday that majority of those arrested in the clean-up operation are Ugandan traditional healers.

Mr Nshinka said immigration officers were prompted by numerous adverts in the print media, where traditional healers have been advertising their services and offering uncertified remedies.

 

“The suspected illegal immigrants were picked from various parts of Lusaka, including Chilenje, Libala, Kalingalinga, Kamwala South and Kabwata with the aid of the very contact details advertised in the newspapers,” he said.
