The Bishop of Eastern Zambia, the Rt Revd William Mchombo, has expressed his “great concern” about the rise in political violence ahead of the country’s tripartite general election which is due to take place on 11 August. Britain and the US have warned their citizens to be careful of political violence when visiting the country, and now the head of the tourism body says that visitor numbers are beginning to fall.
