Authorities in Zambia on Saturday extradited to Malawi China national Lu ke—also known as Su Su—suspected of using local children to be making indecent remarks in short videos that were allegedly being sold in China.

Malawi Police Service deputy spokesperson Harry Namwaza confirmed the development.

“I can confirm that Lu ke was handed over to Malawi authorities yesterday at Mwami border. He is currently being remanded at a police station. He is expected to appear in court soon,” Namwaza said.

Meanwhile, Director of Public Prosecutions Steve Kayuni has said Su Su is expected to appear in court this week.

“We wrote the Zambian government to arrest the China national on behalf of the Malawi Government.

“However, officials from ministries of Homeland Security, Justice and Foreign Affairs followed up with the Zambian government for the extradition of Lu ke,” Kayuni said.

Lu ke fled Malawi after it was discovered that he was allegedly filming children chanting racist slogans in Chinese in Lilongwe’s Njewa area.

He was arrested in Chipata, Zambia, before he was released on bail by a magistrate court.

In one video, a child says: “I am a monster with low IQ”.

It is alleged that Lu ke was selling videos on Chinese social networks, a case revealed by the BBC.

University of Malawi Child Rights Legal Clinic leader Garton Kamchedzera demanded stiff punishment for government officials who allowed Su Su to operate in the country.

The clinic submitted a petition to the Chinese Embassy and the Ministry of Gender, Community Development and Social Welfare and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Lilongwe.
