Zambia deports pantless dancing South African

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 “undermine national values”.

Zambia is a very conservative country whose constitution explicitly states that it is a Christian nation, in contrast with more liberal South Africa.

“Zodwa has been deported,” her Zambian promoter Lucky Munakampe told Reuters.

Munakampe said she had flown out at 0520 GMT on a South African Airways flight.

The dancer had been due to perform on Saturday in Lusaka at the launch of a music album organized by a local entertainment company, Sunset Sound Production.

The organizers of the show said in a statement earlier this week that Zambia’s National Arts Council had rejected their application.

I uzoigwe obinna a student of Caleb university have learned about the usefulness of African traditional dances through the study of African communication system and been able to deduce from the story that the flaw of the deported South African female dancer ‘Zodwa wabantu’ was as a result of ignorance to the fact that all countries have their different values and beliefs. Unlike her home nation ‘South Africa ’ Zambia is less liberal and more religious. I suppose she should have made more inquiry before dancing without underwear. To sum everything up I don’t see the wrong the government did by deporting her for contradicting their traditional values.
