Arrested PF thug says senior party leaders sent them to attack church

In an effort to hoodwink the visiting Commonwealth secretariat team, PF government arrested one thug over the violence at BIGOCA church who has since disclosed that Lusaka District Commissioner Ashwell Kampengele and Muchinga ward councilor in Matero Lee Mukupa were directly involved in mobilising them to invade and attack worshipers at the church.

According to Police intelligence reports intercepted by the Zambian Watchdog, the unnamed thug whom the police refer to as BIGOCA 1, the suspect has told investigators that apart from PF leaders Kampengele and Mukupa, he personally received orders from PF Lusaka province youth chairman Kennedy Kamba, Matero area MP Miles Sampa and his thug Oppah Hamiyanze.

And a Police source has told the Watchdog that police are under pressure not to name all the above in their reports especially the MP and the District Commissioner because it would embarrass the appointing authority.

The source said there is also pressure from Mr. Lee Mukupa because he congregates at the same church he ordered the attacks.
