Deputy Inspector General of police Solomon Jere is admitted in intensive care at Malcolm Watson Hospitalin Mufulira.
Information reaching the Watchdog is that Jere is currently on oxygen therapy though his ailment is still not revealed.
Jere’s illness appears to be treated as another state secret as the hospital especially where Jere is bedridden is surrounded by heavily armed police officers.
It appears that inspector General of Police Stella Libongani visited jere on Monday and was afterwards so irritable and suspicious of anyone following her motorcade that she ended up ordering her body guards to beat up an MP for driving behind her motorcade.
Libongani’s bodyguards beat up Senanga Member of Parliament Likando Mufalali between Kabwe and Kapiri Mposhi on Monday afternoon after accusing him of trailing Libongani’s motorcade. She was returning from the Copperbelt. The MP was just driving along the road like anyone else.
Jere was promoted to position of deputy Inspector General of Police by ailing dictator Michael Sata on Friday, October 26, 2012, replacing a more professional officer Peter Chingaipe.
Jere took his appointment as PF deputy police chief seriously and blocked all opposition political rallies.
Jere has a reputation for young recruits’ skirts.
