Zambia is a source, transit, and destination country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking. Zambian children may be forced by jerabo gangs, who work in the illegal mining sector, to load stolen copper ore onto trucks in the Copperbelt Province. Children are also recruited and transported from villages, brought to cities, and made to serve as guides for groups of blind beggars.
While orphans and street children are the most vulnerable, children of affluent village families are also vulnerable to trafficking because sending children to the city for work is perceived to confer status. Zambian boys and girls are recruited into prostitution by women formerly engaged in prostitution and subsequently exploited by truck drivers in towns along the Zimbabwean and Tanzanian borders and by miners in the growing mining town of Solwezi.
Zambian boys are taken to Zimbabwe for prostitution and women and girls are exploited in forced prostitution in South Africa. Zambia is a transit and destination country for victims of many nationalities. Women and children from Zimbabwe, Malawi, and Mozambique are forced into labor or prostitution after arriving in Zambia.
Chinese, Indian, and Lebanese nationals are exploited in forced labor in textile factories and bakeries. Chinese traffickers brought in a growing number of Chinese women and underage girls for sexual exploitation in brothels and massage parlors in Lusaka that cater to local Chinese clientele; traffickers used front companies that posed as travel agencies to lure Chinese victims and coordinated this exploitation with Zambian facilitators and middle men.
The transnational labor trafficking of Indians, Pakistanis, and Bangladeshis through Zambia for use in construction in South Africa continued and was linked to criminal groups based there. During the year, an increasing number of Ethiopians, Somalis, and Egyptians arrived in Zambia for unknown purposes.
