UK warns its citizens of possible violence in Zambia

22 April 2016, 14:53

Lusaka – The British government has issued a warning to its citizens living in Zambia or traveling to the southern African country amid the political violence that has ensued over the past few days.

According to The Post the British High Commission also issued a warning against poor medical facilities and poor communication in rural areas.

Britons were told not to be around political rallies, gatherings or demonstrations ahead of the general elections on August 11.

This came a few days after at least two people were reportedly burnt to death in Lusaka during riots targeting Rwandan-owned shops, over allegations that foreigners were behind a string of ritual killings. 

The violence erupted earlier this week in slum areas of the capital after the recent murders of at least seven people, whose body parts - such as ears, hearts and penises - had been removed.

Hundreds of residents stoned houses and shops owned by foreign nationals, with some foreigners seeking refuge at police stations as looters took food, drinks, refrigerators and other electrical appliances.

The Zambian government on Wednesday deployed more than 400 soldiers to help end the violence.
