Zambia, Ndola: The Zambia Police Service would like to issue a public advisory to all soccer fans attending the upcoming Zambia football match in Ndola.
The match is scheduled to take place today, November 17, 2023, at Levy Mwanawasa, and we anticipate an enthusiastic turnout from passionate soccer supporters.
It is important to note that this football match is a sporting event aimed at fostering a sense of unity, entertainment, and healthy competition. In light of this, we kindly request all attendees to refrain from wearing any form of political regalia or displaying political symbols during the event, said Zambia Police.
Furthermore, “Zambia Police added that the primary objective of this advisory is to maintain a peaceful and enjoyable atmosphere for all spectators, irrespective of their political affiliations. Wearing political regalia to a non-political event has the potential to create unnecessary tensions and detract from the positive spirit of sportsmanship that we aim to promote.”
The Police of Zambia said, “We understand and respect the right to express one’s political beliefs; however, we emphasize the need for a focused and harmonious environment during the football match. Our officers will be on-site to ensure the safety and security of all attendees, and they will be vigilant in enforcing this advisory. ”
Moreover, they also appreciate all soccer fans’ cooperation in adhering to this request, which will contribute to a successful and incident-free event. Let us come together as a community to celebrate the sport we love and create lasting memories in the spirit of unity.”
Ndola residents supported Zambia Police and loved them for their initiative. One of the residents said, “Exactly, sir. Football unites people, while POLITICS divide people. Very good observation.”
“Thank you, Zambia Police Service, I am really impressed with how you are handling matters. I feel safe, said another user.
