THE police have instituted investigations into Congolese rumba musician Koffi Olomide's alleged assault of a freelance journalist on Friday.
Police spokesperson Elizabeth Kajenla said in Lusaka yesterday that police were on the ground to investigate the matter before they could make a move.
Koffi is alleged to have assaulted photojournalist Jean Ndayisenga commonly known as Mandela by allegedly kicking him in the face.
This was as he tried to take photographs of the musician after a live performance at Pamodzi Hotel in Lusaka.
Mr Ndayisenga reported Koffi for assault at Kabwata Police Station but the case has been transferred to Lusaka Central Police.
Koffi arrived in the country on Wednesday for two performances in Lusaka before moving to Kitwe for another show at Moba Hotel today.
