Hard labour for selling fake Zambian football kits

A Chinese man has been sentenced to nine months’ hard labour for selling replicas of Zambia’s national football kit.

Lusaka Magistrate Greenwell Malumani sentenced Huang Bing after finding him guilty of selling goods bearing a false trademark.

Bing was arrested last month for selling 24 replicas valued at $350.

In sentencing Bing, the magistrate said the offence amounted to theft.

“The trademark is patented and is a work of creativity so people can learn to be creative when their works are protected,” Malumani said.

“This is one case that should send a clear message especially for a foreign nationals that come to do business in Zambia.”
