There was no protest; people were playing cousinship-Police

Zambia Police Acting Spokesperson Esther Katongo has claimed that people who were playing cousinship (Chimbuya) in Lusaka on Thursday were wrongly thought to have been protesting against the appointment of Guy Scott as Acting President.
Katongo said Friday that the Police received a report of a demonstration in town but investigations revealed that there was no demonstration but mere cousinship between Bembas and Easterners.
“There was no demonstration in Lusaka yesterday, (Thursday) we received a report and sent our officers there but it turned out that what they were doing was cousinship (Chimbuya), Katongo claimed.
The fact however is that Patriotic Front cadres protested against the appointment of Guy Scott as Acting President and marched through Cairo road to Cabinet Office carrying placards denouncing Guy Scott.
The protesting cadres were led by Lusaka District Chairperson Yelisa Khondowe who issued a statement that Guy Scott’s appointment was illegal.
