Ms Katanga says it is for this reason that the police called for a stakeholders’ meeting to find solutions to the matter.
ZANIS reports that Ms Katanga says it is important that political parties and other stakeholders meet to find solutions to the matter before political violence escalates to unmanageable levels.
Ms Katanga says the police wants to ensure that campaigns are without intimidation and are done in a peaceful environment.
She said this during a stakeholders’ meeting on peace ahead of the August 11 general elections.
She further said the essence of the meeting is also to ensure that conflict mechanism resolutions are put in place and to address the issue of political party cadres contravening traffics regulations.
Ms Katanga has since warned aspiring candidates and political cadres not to use false registration number plants on their campaign vehicles.
She warned that perpetrators of this act will have their vehicles impounded whether they are from the ruling party or opposition political party.
She also urged political parties on the Copperbelt to collaborate with the police when placing notifications of political meetings.
Ms Katanga further expressed disappointment over the poor attendance of the meeting by stakeholders despite being invited.
