Lusaka street vendors protest
- Updated: July 20, 2012
POLICE in Lusaka this afternoon managed to disperse street vendors who almost started a demonstration in protest of their pending removal from the streets.
The peaceful demonstrators carried banners which had messages calling for the dismissal of Prof. Nkandu Lou not just from her ministerial position but from the PF.
The vendors that seemed more than willing to get the attention of the media, sang songs asking President Sata to protect them from the ‘evil’ govt officials that wanted them off the streets.
Police spokesperson Charity Chanda said the vendors who were marching along Lumumba road were peaceful and heeded police advice not to demonstrate but seek dialogue with the appropriate authorities. This happened around 14:30 hours.
Meanwhile, In Livingstone, Ms Chanda said in Livingstone, police have arrested
five ex-convicts after they broke into the Mosi-o-tunya Baptist Church in stealing goods worth millions of Kwacha.
“The church which is located along Kombe drive and still under renovations was broken into in the early hours of today, 20th July 2012. The suspects aged between 29 and 48 years were rounded up at the graveyard by the police after a tip off from alert members of the public. All the stolen property has been recovered,” Ms Chanda said.
The suspects are in custody and will appear in court soon.
