GOVERNMENT has summoned some Chinese from a fish farm in Siavonga over reports of sexual abuse of female workers.
Siavonga District Commissioner Ephraim Mwanjabantu, confirmed the development saying his office wanted to get to the root of the problem and ensure that perpetrators face the law.
Mr Mwanjabantu said he would engage management over the alleged abuse of female employees.
He said his office had received reports of an individual who was sexually and physically abusing young girls at the company.
Mr Mwanjabantu said his office had already engaged the labour office and the Zambia Police Victim Support Unit to investigate the matter so that appropriate action could be taken against perpetrators.
He said once the individual was identified the law would take its course.
He said the company management, his office, the police and the labour office would next week hold a meeting and identify the culprit at the company.
Mr Mwanjabantu warned that Government was not going to allow foreigners to abuse citizens under the guise of creating employment.
