UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba and his wife Chama today managed to visit incarcerated UPND president Hakainde Hichilema at Mukobeko Correctional Facility in Kabwe.
But Chief Mukuni and Chief Hamusonde were denied entry by officers on grounds that they had instructions from high authorities not to allow the two chiefs to visit Hichilema.
While Mr Geoffrey Mwamba was happy to see Hichilema, he expressed concern that the two traditional leaders could not be allowed to see Hichilema.
Chief Mukuni who was accompanied by his wife explained that prison officials told him that they were under instructions not to allow him to see Hichilema.
PF Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri was on one radio station in Lusaka today attacking the two chiefs for speaking against Hichilema’s arrest.
