Event

Youth activists have called for protests in Lusaka on Monday, June 22, to highlight several issues, including corruption, freedom of speech, and alleged police brutality. Participants will reportedly gather at 11:00 (local time) at the Main Post Office before marching towards the National Assembly building at around 14:00, where protesters will remain until 16:00. The organizers have vowed to proceed despite being denied an official permit for the event, while the ruling Patriotic Front party's youth wing has threatened to hold a counter-demonstration on the day.

A heightened security presence is expected around protests sites and clashes between demonstrators and law enforcement are possible.
