Unkown people are circulating flyers in Kaoma demanding that non-Nkoya-speaking people leave the district.
And Chief Government spokesperson Ronnie Shikapwasha has warned that the law will firmly deal with the people circulating the flyers.
Lieutenant-General Shikapwasha, who is also Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services, said on February 1 that Government has a duty to protect its citizens and all those causing confusion would be dealt with.
The flyers dated January 28, 2011, threaten that failure to comply with the demand will result in undisclosed consequences.
Other than the Nkoya, Kaoma district is home to the Luchazi, Luvale, Lunda, Chokwe and Mbunda among others.
And Inspector-General of Police Francis Kabonde has advised Zambians against making utterances and threats that border on ethnicity and tribalism.
Mr Kabonde said such remarks may lead to the breakdown of law and order in the country.
He said such utterances may have serious repercussions to the country’s socio-economic development.
He advised Zambians to stop issuing such threats against those that do not originate or hail from their areas. –
