The NGOs that have planned to hold a public rally in Lusaka have backpedalled, claiming the police have not granted them a notice to go ahead.
According to Citizens Forum executive secretary, Simon Kabanda, the NGOs have, however, threatened to go ahead with the red card campaigns and will remain committed to demanding for good governance and a good Constitution.
In the same vein, the African Institute for Democracy and Good Governance has welcomed the cancellation of the planned rally in support of the red card campaign, saying dialogue should always prevail over unnecessary protests. Spokesperson Thabo Kawana says the police acted wisely in not giving a notice to the NGOs to hold the rally, adding that it was clear that the campaign lacked credibility, and that Zambians would not have supported it.
