The ruling PF has written to the Zambia Police requesting a permit to hold a demonstration where it will denounce some Ambassadors accredited to Zambia for holding a luncheon with UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
PF sources said the demonstration is planned for next week and that placards insulting some diplomats have already been prepared.
The demonstration is expected to start from Addis Ababa Round About and the PF cadres will walk around the diplomatic square which houses a number of Embassies before reaching the Chinese Embassy to present what they are calling a Letter of Appreciation to the Chinese Embassy for not participating in the luncheon.
Below is the letter written by the PF’s Information Committee to the Zambia Police Service.
