Police in Lusaka have detained about 42 youths from ActionAid who took part in this morning’s Youth Day March past for wearing Tshirts demanding for a new constitution.
ActionAid Executive Director Pamela Chisanga confirmed the development to Journalists this morning.
Ms Chisanga expressed shock that Police could detain innocent young Zambians for demanding a new constitution.
She said the youths from ActionAid were peacefully marching alongside their colleagues from other organisations when they were stopped and taken to Lusaka Central Police.
Ms Chisanga has since demanded for the immediate release of the 42 youths.
Yesterday, Parliament rejected a private members motion urging Government to release a roadmap for the enactment of a new constitution.
