A personal argument with PF Member of Central committee Paul Moonga made New Labour Party president Fresher Siwale spend last night in Lusaka Central police cell. He has since been released and charged with conduct likely to breach peace. And PF cadres are set to silence any critics of Edgar Lungu.
Siwale was once a member of the PF central committee and was merely commenting on the state of governance in the nation when Moonga joined and accused him of hating Lungu with passion. Moonga at that stage issued derogatory remarks at Siwale who still maintained his calm but instead that the economy was doing badly under PF.
Moonga threatened to beat Siwale and later called police Inspector General Kakoma Kanganja who also in turn directed police officers to go and pick Siwale at levy Park at about midday yesterday and detained him without any charge.
Meanwhile, PF cadres have vowed that during the state of emergency they will not allow anyone to criticise or speak anything against Lungu and the PF as so doing will automatically mean effecting an ‘arrest’ by the cadres.
