Students from universities are plotting to march to parliament to protest against the scrapping off of meal allowances.
Zambia Police Public Relations Officer Esther Katongo has confirmed that police have information of the plot.
“We have information that students from learning institutions are planning to march to Parliament over issues of meal allowances. Our advice to the students is that they should follow the laid down procedures in airing their grievances as opposed to taking to the streets.
“As Police will not tolerate any acts of lawlessness and we do not want to have any unnecessary confrontation with anyone. We already have details of those orchestrating the protest. We therefore warn those involved that should the planned activity materialize, we are not going to spare them,” she said.
