On his official Facebook Page, President Elect Hakainde Hichilema Wrote:
We wish to restate our position and be categorically clear that those wishing to take part in illegal acts; including the destruction of public and private property, must immediately stop or be dealt with by the law.
As we take office, we will not allow crime to be committed under the guise of celebrating an election victory, nor will we accept disruption to our peaceful transition by a small group of trouble makers.
As outgoing Republican President and Commander In Chief, it is still incumbent upon President Edgar Lungu during this transition period, to ensure that law and order is maintained to the fullest extent, and we urge him to do so.
