This is to allow for measures to be put in place to avoid the spread of cholera,” Kampyongo said.
On Sunday, Zambia declared a curfew in a poor Lusaka township badly affected by a cholera outbreak to avoid crowding and street vending at night.
The curfew in Kanyama, a densely populated slum of iron-roofed shacks and dirt tracks runs from between 6 p.m.
30 directed the military to help to fight the spread of the waterborne disease.
