Flashback: Police detain UPND leader in connection with Menyani Zulu killing

The arrest of UPND campaigners in Mulobezi by PF police on allegations of attacking PF SG davies Chama is nothing new. They have done this before as the article below published by the Daily Mail in 2012 show. In that case, the PF killed their own member Menyani Zulu but twisted the story and the police arrested UPND officials. Later, the truth came out and innocent UPND officials were set free. Here is the video on how Menayi was killed by PF led by Kaizer Zulu. The same happened in Livingstone where   PF cadres their own member when they were fighting for money but arrested UPND MP Garry Nkombo and others. The UPND members were released after the truth came out but after suffering in jail and their campaigns negatively affected. This is what is happening in Mulobezi.

Below is what the Daily Mail wrote when Menyani Zulu was murdered:

Published by the Daily Mail on November 13, 2012

POLICE have detained United Party for National Development (UPND) Lusaka Province chairman Adrian Bauleni to assist with investigations into the murder of Patriotic Front (PF) member Crispin Menyani Zulu.
Police assistant public relations officer Esther Katongo confirmed yesterday that police have information linking Mr Bauleni to the murder.
“We have apprehended Mr Bauleni .We want him to assist us in the investigation into the murder of Mr Menyani Zulu,” Mrs Katongo said.
Chongwe member of Parliament Silvia Masebo has urged the police to do their work professionally.

Two other people sustained injuries when campaigns during a local government by-election in Rufunsa turned violent.
Mr Zulu was allegedly killed by MMD and UPND cadres.
Meanwhile, police have deployed a contingent of investigators to Rufunsa to boost the on-going investigation into last Thursday’s killing of Mr Zulu.
President Sata condemned the killing and described the death of Mr Zulu as disheartening.
The investigators led by division criminal investigations officer Andrew Mbewe left Lusaka for Rufunsa on Saturday to probe the death.
Lusaka Province police commissioner Joyce Kasosa said in an interview on Saturday that the command will not rest until the culprits are brought to book.
Mrs Kasosa said the deployment of officers to Rufunsa indicates that investigations into the murder have been intensified.
“Police are still investigating the matter. More officers, including senior officers, have travelled to Rufunsa to get to the bottom of the incident and bring all culprits to justice,” she said.
She said after the probe, police will have to make some arrests.
And police are investigating former Innscor Church Road Complex manager George Tembo for allegedly stealing from the company.
Mrs Kasosa, however, could not immediately confirm the development.
According to sources, Mr Tembo allegedly stole an upright Pepsi fridge, a microwave, 18 restaurant chairs, a restaurant table, four table stands and tops, two menu frames and six scone trays valued at more than K19 million.
He also allegedly got over K2.3 million from the company without permission.
According to police officers investigating the matter, they went to Mr Tembo’s home in Mtendere yesterday around 03:00 hours to pick him up but they did not find him.
But Mr Tembo said from Nyimba that he got the fridge for safe-keeping and he is ready to return it when the company needs it.
Mr Tembo said he got the fridge because he was told to find a place for safe storage.
“I was told to find somewhere to keep the fridge. So, I said that I will take it somewhere and I would bring it back when it was needed,” he said.
He also said he borrowed some money from the company for transport and promised to return it later.
