POLICE in Kabwe have said they will allow only people with invitation cards into the Kabwe High Court premises when the treason trial of four members of the Barotse Freedom Movement (BFM) starts today.
Central Province commissioner of police Lombe Kamukoshi said in an interview yesterday that the case will come up before the Kabwe High Court today.

“The case is sensitive and only the people with cards will be allowed at Kabwe High Court,” Ms Kamukoshi said.
She said the families of the accused persons have each been given four invitation cards.

Ms Kamukoshi said the police will not allow access to the Kabwe High Court grounds without invitation cards because of the sensitive nature of the case.
