A Chinese filmmaker wanted by Malawi as part of an investigation into allegations of racism and child exploitation has been fined in neighbouring Zambia for unlawfully entering the country, Zambia’s state-owned Daily Mail newspaper reports.
Lu Ke was a Malawi resident when he was exposed by BBC Africa Eye, which reported he had used local children to film personalised greetings videos, some of which included racist content.
These videos can be bought for up to $70 (£55) on Chinese social media and internet platforms.
Lu Ke denied making derogatory videos.
He said he made his videos in order to spread Chinese culture to the local community.
Lu Ke fled to Zambia after the BBC documentary was released.
