Minister of information Mark Botomani has said no City, District, Town Assembly or Council has granted permission to the Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) to conduct demonstrations that are expected to take place today.
This has been said in a statement released by the office minister yesterday.
The statement said government prohibited the demonstrations in view of the extensive damage to property following the protests.
