Zambia on Saturday deported a controversial female South African dancer, Zodwa Wabantu, who is popularly known for performing without underwear, on the grounds that her performance would ‚Äúundermine national values‚ÄĚ.
Zambia is a very conservative country whose constitution explicitly states that it is a Christian nation, in contrast with more liberal South Africa.
‚ÄúZodwa has been deported,‚ÄĚ her Zambian promoter Lucky Munakampe told Reuters. Munakampe said she had flown out at 0520 GMT on a South African Airways flight.
The organisers of the show said in a statement earlier this week that Zambia‚Äôs National Arts Council had rejected their application.
‚ÄúThe Council stated that… Zodwa‚Äôs performances were not in the public interest and undermined our national values,‚ÄĚ the statement said.
