North-Western Province Permanent Secretary Willies Mangimela disclosed that the unruly crowd which thronged the facility were threatening officers who are issuing cards to stop.
He however indicated that the disruption was thwarted by quick action by police officers who dispersed the people.
“We had an incident in Mufumbwe were some members of the public wanted to disrupt the ongoing issuance of national registration cards and voters cards to inmates. But they were easily dispersed by police officers,” he said.
He revealed that the situation is now back to normal and that the exercise is going on smoothly.
Asked what the reason was for the people to disrupt the exercise, Mr Mangimela said the unruly members of the public had no proper reason for their action.
He stated that if they had any reason, they should have brought it before his office than resorting to disrupting the exercise.
He said they were not happy with the exercise, they should have complained when the court ruling was done by putting up a court injunction.
The Permanent Secretary was speaking when he inspected the ongoing issuance of national registration cards and voter’s cards at Solwezi Central Correctional Facility.
