On 5 August 2021, the U.K. Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO) issued updated travel advice regarding upcoming elections, which reads in part as follows: “Zambia will hold a general election on Thursday 12 August and the result may not be known for 3 to 5 days. There will be political rallies in the days before the election and until the result is announced. You should respect local sensitivities and avoid large crowds.”
