Zambia’s opposition political party, the United Party for National Development (UPND) says its celebrating the African Freedom day 50th Anniversary ‘without’ that freedom as they have been denied the permit to hold its political rally in the Lusaka’s Chawama township.

The party which requested for the permits some two weeks ago had its request turned down by Police in Lusaka.

Lusaka Province Police Commissioner, Joyce Kasosa confirmed that Police has not given the opposition political party permit to hold the meeting.

But the party has vowed to go ahead with the meeting as scheduled tomorrow.

The opposition party has also disclosed that it will shun the official celebrations of the African day celebrations in Zambia that are being held at the Showgrounds.
