Forced Violent Evictions of Jeremiah Island




On 11th February 2023, members of the Zambian security forces violently evicted approximately 500 members of a fishing community that were living on Jeremiah Island on Lake Kariba, Siavonga District. During the eviction, four community members were arrested and detained, and approximately 100 individuals sustained injuries. The community’s belongings, including fishing equipment and cash, were destroyed. Since their eviction, the displaced persons have not been provided with alternative accommodation or compensation and have lost their means of livelihood. The affected persons are further denied fishing rights.
