Police Deny UPND Permit for Demonstration


The police in Kitwe have denied the UPND the right to hold a demonstration.
According to a letter signed by an officer in charge identified as P. Mutti the police could not grant the request also on account that the political climate on the Copperbelt was volatile.  
“I refer to the above cited matter, this formation cannot grant permission due to the following reasons: According to the Public Order Act, notification should be tendered on to the police seven days before the day of the execution but this one was tendered in on 15th November 2018 which is four days before the actual day, 19th November, 2018 contrary to the Public Order Act,” read the statement.
