Africa-PressZambia. A mob of UPND Cadres closed down Choma’s Debonairs Pizza on Monday for not displaying President Hakainde Hichilema’s portrait.

Businessman, who is also Patriotic Front, (PF) Member of the Central Committee, Kebby Mbewe runs the franchise name in Choma.

A group of youths accuse the former ruling party’s senior official of tearing up a portrait earlier displayed, but the store manager and workers have denied the allegations.

The store manager, only identified as Banda said they have never bought a portrait until Monday after the youths protested.

It is not clear if there is law that requires public places to display the Presidential Portrait, but a Byta FM check into the Penal Code, Local Government Act and Zambian Constitution finds no provision demanding the displaying of the portrait.

A similar fact-check of the Alliance for Community Action, (ACA) in 2018 concluded that no law demands the need for a Presidential Portrait in public places.

Choma Town Clerk, Embassy Chembo could not immediately comment on the matter and promised to issue a comprehensive statement later.
