Riots break out in Ndola

Ndola residents have taken to the streets demanding the announcement of presidential results.

Some shops owned by Somalians were gutted by riotious youths near ndeke township.

Goods worth  millions of kwacha have been destroyed as shop owners went into hiding.

Police and  fire-brigade arrived at the scene very late as damage was already done

“They are on the streets with stones and we can only urge them to stop the riotous behavior,” Copper Belt police chief Martin Malama said.

“We have not assessed the extent of the damage yet because we are still trying to contain the situation.”
