Government is appalled by reports that Chinese employers at Hua Ling Construction Company allegedly forces their Zambian workers to partake in the eating of dog meat.

Labour and Social Security Minister Fackson Shamenda has told QFM News in an interview that government will not condone such unacceptable conduct.

Mr. Shamenda says he will dispatch a team of officers from his ministry to follow up the reports and investigate the matter.

Mr. Shamenda has since encouraged Zambian workers especially those working for private companies to come up with unions to avoid being exploited by employers.

He says belonging to unions will help workers to have their grievances addressed.

Mr Shamenda says it is difficult for his Ministry to know how many foreign employers are exploiting their workers if workers do not belong to unions.
