The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) has summoned eight motorists for throwing litter out of their moving vehicles.
RTSA Head of Public Relations Fredrick Mubanga says this is because of the warning that the Agency has evoked the Road Traffic Act of 2012.
Mr. Mubanga says the eight will now be prosecuted in accordance with the law.
And Police in Lusaka have arrested and charged 8 people for illegal disposal of waste after citizens imposed a citizen’s arrest.
Police working with the Zambia Environmental Management Agency ZEMA charged the 8 in line with the Environmental Management Act of 2012.
ZEMA Head of Corporate Affairs Ireen Lungu says four of the 8 have since been charged and paid a fine of 1-thousand 8-hundred kwacha.
Ms Lungu says the Agency has also issued a restoration order for the 8 to clean up the same area they had illegally dumped waste.
