Court Adjourns Su Su Case


The Senior Resident Magistrate James Mankhwazi has adjourned a case involving a Chinese National Lu Ke who is on populary known as Susu to 19 August.

Susu faces five charges of child trafficking and was brought to court today to take plea.

Lu Ke also known as Susu fled Malawi to Zambia in June 2022 after a BBC Africa Eye investigation exposed his  illegal conduct of making racist videos involving Malawian children.

Susu was arrested in Zambia and on 24 June, the Chipata Resident Magistrate Mercy Chibo ordered him to pay 13,000 Zambian Kwacha -about MK780,000  for illegal entry and illegal stay.

The Malawi Government through cooperation among Ministries of Homeland Security, Justice and Foreign Affairs, reached out to the Zambian Government to request the extradition of  Susu.

Lu Ke taught the children phrases in Mandarin in which they praised Chinese people, made fun of poverty, and chanted a racist epithet saying they are "a black monster" and that their "IQ is low."

A BBC investigation found the man, Lu Ke, paid children to sing and speak Mandarin in disturbing videos that he sold online.

The BBC's investigation found that Lu Ke was shooting hundreds of videos per day and selling them at up to $70 apiece to a Chinese website. The kids performing in the videos were paid about half a dollar each.
