Zambia has smashed a scam to adopt children and flow out of Zambia without following proper procedures, Times of Zambia reported on Saturday.

It quoted Community and Social Welfare Minister Catherine Manual as saying here Friday that several children have since been withdrawn from some American nationals because the adoption is not legally binding.

She said that unconfirmed reports indicate that over 17 children have already been adopted and taken out of the country without the consent of the government and the ministry is trying to establish people behind the scam.

The government is determined to stop such illegal acts and protect the citizens, said the minter.

When paying a surprise visit to one of the orphanages in Lusaka, Manual said orphanages should assist the government in protecting them instead of giving them away to people whose background is questionable.

The minister warned those in habit of adopting children illegally to be on the look out as the law will soon visit them and that they should not complain of victimization once caught in such vices.
