A demonstration is scheduled to take place outside the South African High Commission in Lusaka on Wednesday, September 4. Protesters are expected to gather outside the Crossroads Mall at 13:00 (local time) before marching to the South African High Commission. The demonstration has been called to denounce a spate of incidents of xenophobic violence that took place in Johannesburg between Sunday, September 1, and Monday, September 2.
Localized transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are to be expected in the vicinity of the protest.
Individuals in Lusaka are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests and demonstrations, prepare for associated disruptions to transportation and business, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
