Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has warned all road users against lawlessness ahead of the Nc’wala traditional ceremony this weekend.
The RTSA is therefore urging all road users attending the ceremony to follow traffic rules and regulations to avoid any road crashes.
RTSA Head of Public Relations Fredric Mubanga said the Agency has deployed adequate officers to ensure adherence to road traffic rules and regulations.
Mr Mubanga said this is by way of conducting highway traffic patrols along the Great East Road with the aim of screening drivers for drunk driving and excessive speeding among others.
He said RTSA is also conducting road safety education and publicity campaigns to raise public awareness on matters of road safety.
Mr Mubanga said RTSA would continue conducting such activities in all parts of the country to ensure that all road users are abreast with road safety rules and regulations in order to continue saving more lives from avoidable road traffic crashes.
The Ngoni people of Eastern province will this weekend celebrate the annual traditional ceremony, Nc’wala, which is one of the biggest ceremonies in Zambia and attracts people from all parts of the country and abroad
