Lusambo gives police seven days ultimatum over PF cadre permits

Opposition MMD Die-Hard youth Coordinator Bowman Lusambo has given the Zambia Police a seven days ultimatum in which to explain to the nation the procedure it has continued use to permit Patriotic Front (PF) cadres to stage conduct protests.

Lusambo says his party would like to know the procedure the PF cadres have been following for Police to continue granting them permission to stage protests against PF Secretary General Wynter Kabimba.

He says failure by the police command to explain to the nation the procedure PF cadres have been using to obtain police permits will force youths from the opposition to demonstrate against the police.

Lusambo has stated that there is no way the opposition can continue being denied police permits to hold political public gatherings when the PF cadres are allowed to hold protests almost on a daily basis.

He tells QFM that such double standards by the Police in administering the Public Order are unfair and discouraging to the opposition in the country.
