UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema refused to answer questions from police officers who summoned him to Woodlands station Wednesday morning.
The police, working under orders from president Edgar Lungu just ended up recording a warn and caution statement against Hakainde Hichilema before letting him go.
An excited HH was later seen waving to multitudes of supporters who gathered outside the police station. Some supporters led by William Banda spent the night at his residence to protect him. HH lost the last presidential by election by less than 2 per cent and is gearing for the next elections in September 2016.
PF cadres who had gathered outside earlier retreated and disappeared after seeing UPND supporters wearing red berets.
Inside the station, police asked HH Such questions:
Did you hold a press briefing?
What was agenda?
You did say you receive intelligence reports, from who?
Do you know implications of such public statements?
Hichilema’ answer to all the questions was ‘no comment’.
As can be seen from the photos
, the event turned into a free rally for HH as Woodlands residents climbed on roof tops to wave at him.
