Event:  Demonstrations are expected to take place today, June 22, 2020 at the National Assembly of Zambia along Great East Road between Manda Hill and the University of Zambia, Katima Mulilo Road, and Levy Junction.  Although most protests in Zambia are peaceful, these gatherings can attract large groups of supporters and at the minimum, may impede traffic and cause significant delays.  The demonstrations will result in increased police presence around the area.

U.S. government personnel are advised to avoid those areas while the demonstrations are ongoing.

  • Avoid the areas of the demonstrations.
  • Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings or protests.
  • Monitor local media for updates.
