As Zambia Police, we are appealing to you the people of Zambia to remain calm and peaceful as we together await the final outcome of the Presidential by-election. Political parties are therefore being advised not to get involved in early celebrations as such conduct can be a source of violence. We will not hesitate to arrest and charge all those who will get on public roads and places celebrating prematurely because that may lead to the breach of peace.
It is important that the nation waits until the only mandated institution which is the Electoral Commission of Zambia, declares the winner at the end of the whole process.
We still want to advise all those wishing to hold public processions, meetings or gatherings to abide by the provisions of the public order act failure to which they will be charged according to the provisions of the law.
