A horde of rowdy cadres from the ruling PF this afternoon protested at the Law Association of Zambia Secretariat.
The cadres carrying placards denouncing LAZ President Linda Kasonde for her alleged pro opposition stance demanded that she leaves the Secretariat.
It was not immediately clear of Ms. Kasonde was in the building at the time of the protest.
Police had to move in quickly to disperse the cadres and security the premises.
By the time of publishing, armed police were still manning the building.
A notice via SMS from LAZ advised its members and the public from entering the premises.
“Good afternoon all. Cadres have attacked secretariat. Please do not go there until further notice. I have spoken to Commissioner of Police Lusaka who says he is sending officers. I am also trying to get hold of the AG. Please do not go to the Secretariat,” the text read.
Some of the cadres were carrying weapons such as pangas and advanced directly to Ms. Kasonde’s office but she could not be found.
The cadres said they have been angered by LAZ’s decision to represent Post lawyer Nchima Nchito over the arrest warrant of instituted by former Post workers.
Cadres are demanding the dismantling of LAZ accusing it to be pro-UPND and champion the agenda of Fred M’membe.
In an interview later, Ms. Kasonde confirmed that she is safe and that the cadres have all dispersed.
