Political campaigns suspended in Zambia due to violence

Political campaigns in the capital Lusaka and Namwala have been suspended due to violent clashes between opposing parties in next month’s national elections. Three days ago, police killed an opposition supporter after the UPND party refused to cancel a campaign meeting in Lusaka’s Chawama area.

Advice

Travellers should be cautious and avoid all public and political gatherings since they may become violent without notice
