Doctors have finally managed to extract the bullet a UPND supporter who was shot and left for dead by PF Secretary General Davis Chama on Saturday in Mulobezi. The victim was evacuated to Livingstone where doctors managed to save his life. Mushaykwa also has a dip cut on the forehead meaning that apart from a bullet a knife was also used.
To protect Chama, the police have twisted the events and issued the following statement just like they did when PF cadres killed their own cadre in Livingstone and Feira in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

SUB : FOUR PEOPLE ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH MR. DAVIS
DATE: 7TH JUNE, 2015
Police in Sesheke have apprehended four people in connection with the attack of the PF Secretary General Mr. Davis Chama and his entourage which happened on 6th June 2015 in Mulobezi.
The suspects include the Sesheke Central Member of Parliament Hon. Siyanga Siyauya, Gerad Imanda, Likamba Godfrey while the fourth one Mushaukwa Mushaukwa is nursing his wound in Sesheke District Hospital under police guard.
A pistol with seven rounds of ammunition and other offensive weapons were recovered from a Toyota Hilux Reg. NO. ALD 9469 belonging to Hon. Siyauya. The Hilux was one of the vehicles that were used to block the road when the attack happened.
The vehicle has since been impounded and investigations into the matter continue.
The statement from the PF police is a clear attempt to blame the victims like they have always done. The police say Mushaukwa is nursing wounds under police guard but they are not saying who shot him exactly. Are the police insinuating that the UPND MP is the one who shot Mushaukwa? If Chama ambuished and the UPND team had guns and pangas as the police are saying, why was no one in Chama’s team hurt?
