Immigration Department deports British businessman

Zambia Times 1 February 2007

A 46-YEAR-OLD Briton has been deported for allegedly contravening immigration laws.
Immigration Department spokesperson, Mulako Mbangweta, said in Lusaka yesterday that Michaelson Mathew Ross, proprietor of Leopards Ridge Company and Gatewell Limited that drills boreholes in Lusaka, was deported after investigations instituted recently. Ms Mbangweta said it was the opinion of the ministry of Home Affairs that the presence of Mr Ross was likely to be a danger to the peace and good order of Zambia. Mr Ross was deported under Section 269 (2) of the Immigration and Deportation Act. The order followed investigations and several warnings issued against him. Ms Mbangweta said the Immigration Department would not hesitate to deal with any person found contravening immigration laws and added that it was saddening that some foreigners were abusing the hospitality they enjoyed in Zambia
