HH refuses to apologise or go to police, tells DPP Nchito to hang

A victim of Thursday’s police brutality

UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has vowed not to retract his statement in which he revealed that the Patriotic Front was sending its cadres to Sudan for militia training.


And Hichilema Friday refused to go to the police station saying they want to kill him as eveidenced by the brutality they exhibited on Thursday.

Hichilema says he is aware that the Director for Public Prosecutions Mutembo Nchito is trying to create evidence to use against him once he admits and retracts the statement.

The opposition leader says that he will not allow  Nchito to hold him to ransom as well as blackmail him.

He says Nchito is faced with the conflict of interest in the DBZ case and is trying to silence the opposition as they seem to speak on the matter in the interest of the nation.

Hichilema has further stated that Mr. Nchito does not deserve to be the Director of Public Prosecutions on the basis that he is compromised.

The UPND leader has charged that Mr. Nchito is behaving like a cadre for the PF and has questioned why the DPP seems to be talking on behalf of the ruling party.

And Mr. Hichilema says he will not appear before the Police who have summoned him to appear before them today.

Mr. Hichilema says following the Police brutality that took place Thursday, he will not allow the police to continue violating his human rights.

The opposition leader has also challenged the Lusaka Province Commissioner of Police Solomon Jere to stop issuing misleading statements indicating that he is on the run.

Mr. Hichilema has since advised the Police investigations team to concentrate on bringing to book the police officers who allegedly brutalized people yesterday leaving two in a critical condition.
