Opposition EPP leader Chilufya Tayali has revealed plans to carry out a lone protest march in Lusaka against Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja.
Mr Tayali said he was due to undertake the protest on Tuesday but that his lawyers advised him to first write to the Police to formally notify them.
“I have been advised by my lawyers, that, I should formerly write the police over my intended protest walk, so that i don’t play in the hands of Mwami One (I.G),” Mr Tayali said.
“I will present the letter to Lusaka Province Commissioner tomorrow, expressing the intention to do a LONE (I don’t want to risk anyone in this fight) protest walk from Freedom’s statue to Police force Headquarters to present a petition to the Inspector General of Police.”
Mr Tayali said,”My petition will be on the demand that “Kanganja must go” and “Decriminalize Siandenge”.
He said he is a law abiding citizen and that he will follow what is prescribed in the constitution.
And Mr. Tayali has insisted that he will continue posting on Facebook comments that will expose “incompetent” Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja.
In April, Mr Kanganja dragged Mr Tayali to court after he posted on Facebook that the I.G was trying to hide his inefficiency by charging UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema with treason in that same month.
However, Lusaka magistrate Felix Kaoma dismissed the matter on Friday morning after the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Lillian Siyunyi entered a nolle prosequi.
