ZAMBIA POLICE ON THE ECL JOGGING ROUTINE
Below is the Statement:
September 23, 2023-The Zambia Police Service has noted with concern the unlawful assembly and political activism that was conducted by Patriotic cadres on Saturday September 23,2023, when the Former President Mr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu was conducting his morning Jogging routine.
We would like to warn the Patriotic Front cadres that public gatherings or demonstrations, including political events should be notified to the police as by law established. Failure to do so amounts to a breach of the law. This is to ensure public safety, traffic management, and to prevent disruptions to the daily lives of citizens.
What transpired yesterday where Patriotic Cadres went about disrupting the free flow of traffic amounts to Unlawful assembly and going forward shall not be tolerated. Such a procession of a former Head of State should be done with his security detail and devoid of political activism.
