Chinese National operating in Norton have been accused of sexual abusing women and infecting them with sexually transmitted diseases in exchange for jobs.

The matter came to light after one Chief Chivero was assaulted by a Chinese businessman when he went to inquire why his subjects are not being employed by the company.

Norton member of parliament Temba Mliswa said that when he was doing follow up on the matter he discovered that lots was being done by the Chinese.

"I was very angry and disappointed to learn that Chief Chivero was yesterday assaulted by a Chinese National at Sunny Yi Feng Tiles Zimbabwe. This action is disrespect of the highest order and I'll be following up on the police report made for more details." Mliswa said. "Whilst making a follow up on the above I was shocked and appalled to receive reports of sexual harassment for jobs and cases of untreatable STIs being contracted by ladies from some of the Chinese nationals at the company. This too will be investigated."

Mliswa added that the company was conducting slavery tendencies on the employees so that it can produce tiles that are cheap.

"I'm disappointed by the above allegations as they're compounded by further reports that the company is able to charge low prices for their tiles because they underpay and mistreat their workers. This is a despicable practice which if proved won't be tolerated at all."

Mliswa has called for the immediate deportation of the Chinese national warning that it will be hell if he is not deported.

Chinese nationals in Zambia are known for assaulting government officials and traditional leaders.
