“ The response has so far been generally good more especially in Lusaka , Copperbelt including Nakonde border town is also doing fine compared to the other boarders towns the response has not been good,’’ he said.
Once the Amnesty period is over on the May 26 ,2021, the Authority will not extend the amnesty to the public and will thus impound all the vehicles illegally imported in the country.
