Rustenburg - Zambian president Edgar Lungu was considering setting up a commission of inquiry into the chemical spraying and mob justice activities that had affected the country, it was reported on Friday.

According to a report in the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC), Lungu said government would get to the bottom of the issue and bring the culprits to book.

He told the broadcaster that those who were involved would be found regardless of their status in society because Zambians deserved to live in peace and harmony.

He said the enemies, whose aim was to disturb the peace, had moved to rural areas where they were spreading false news.

Zambia recently experienced a wave of criminals allegedly spraying a gas that immobilised their victims before they attacked them, the gas reportedly makes people dizzy.
