The Zambia Police High Command has continued misrepresenting the facts of the happening is Sesheke where voting of a new lawmaker is peacefully in progress.
We wish to refute claims by the Zambia Police spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo is an absolute lie which should be dispelled with the contempt it deserved.
We, the UPND, and other stakeholders have demanded professionalism from the police who have always conducted themselves as PF cadres.
Just like Kakoma Kanganja the police IG misled the nation over the attempted assassination of President Hakainde Hichilema so has Mwaata Katongo.
Kakoma Kanganja in an effort to defend his pay Masters, the PF, who worked with the police in trying terminate the life of the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema he issued a statement refuting the use of live ammunition by the PF cadres in police uniforms. Much to Kanganja’s shock video clips of police shootings were shown on some TV Stations.
Today Esther Mwaata Katongo had issued a misleading statement claiming that UPND and PF clashed in Sesheke leading to the arrest of two UPND cadres who were found in possession of offensive weapons (Matchets) when in fact not.
A check at the police Station and Posts in Sesheke revealed that no UPND member has been apprehended by the police in the area this morning.
The police spokesperson is a professional who should desist from mispresentation of facts because of wanting to please the PF.
