Facts are that the six accused persons organised a demonstrating at Parliament building over the purchase of the fire trucks by the government.

When the matter came up for plea before Lusaka Magistrate Mwaka Mikalile, the accused could not take plea as only two of the six were present before court

Magistrate Mikalile extended the accused police bond and adjourned the matter to January 29th, 2018 for a plea.
