The National Democratic Congress, NDC is urging all the youths to turn up in great numbers to demonstrate against the Electoral Commission of Zambia(ECZ).
NDC National Youth Chairman Charles Kabwita said that the youths will also be protesting against bad governance and selective allocation of the law, among other issues.
Mr Kabwita said that this has resulted into the opposition like the NDC failing to mobilise as much as it would like to.
“Further to the successful notification for demonstrations made to the police by NDC and UPND, I direct the youths in all provinces to turn out in great numbers to demonstrate against Mr Esau Chulu, Mrs Emily Sikazwe and Mr Patrick Nshindano.
“We have met all the requirements of the Public Order Act hence our expectations of the police are that they do not interfere with the demonstrations. The police should be there to police the demonstrations and not be a source of confusion or violence against peaceful demonstrators,” he said.
He said the youths will not take no for an answer for this undertaking so we expect the rule of law to prevail.
Mr Kabwita has also encourage youths in Lusaka from both the NDC and UPND, as well as from other parties and those that are not aligned to any political party, but they are aggrieved with what is happening in the country, to show up for the protest.
He said the police have, of late, granted a number of rallies to the PF, the recent one being in Chingola.
Mr Kabwita said that with or without permit the demonstration will go ahead and our notification to go ahead was already successfully given to the police last week.
