Some public service union bodies have been offering belated apologies for accepting a measly increment of between 7.4 and 9 percent from government. The Civil Servants and Allied Workers Union (CSAWU) has stated that it only accepted the miniscule adjustment to avoid entering into a dispute with government. Union president David Chiyobe says that the unions would do better next year during negotiations for the 2018/19 collective bargaining. Chiyobe said that the unions would continue pressing for other possible side benefits for their members. On Sunday the Zambia Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU) and the Public Service Management Division (PSMD) penned a collective agreement covering 11 public service unions with a nine percent salary increment effective January 2018.

Traffic police officers were back in bad light with a runaway motorist hitting and killing a pedestrian whilst running away from over-zealous law enforcement officers. The incident sparked a riot from Ndola residents that pelted stones at police officers as they attempted to retrieve the body of the deceased teenager who died on the spot. Police had been pursuing a motorist who had allegedly committed a traffic offence with the chase going horribly wrong when he hit a pedestrian who died on the spot sparking riots. The angry mob attacked police whom they blamed for the death of the teenager after having pursued the motorist forcefully. Traffic police officers have become synonymous with scandal with a Lusaka resident engaging in a fist fight with officers last week over a disagreement on the manner they handled his case.
