Mr Lungu says has since appealed to the Bemba Traditional Council not to feel intimidated with the presence of Police officers in the area.

He has told Q-News that the deployment of Police officers to the area which has raised suspicions means no harm.

Mr. Lungu says the presence of the Police should assure the residents in the area of total security as it an operational instruction.

Mr. Lungu adds that the presence of Police Officers in the area should also reassure the Bemba traditional Council of safety measures in case anything arises.

He states that the Bemba Traditional Council should get back to their daily activities without worrying as the Police are there to protect and secure them.
