UPND President Hakaibde Hichilema took time to visit Mutinta Mazoka M’membe and her bodyguards currently detained at Kabwata police station. Mutinta was arrested yesterday around 17:00hrs when police ambushed their residence along Nangwenya road. HH described the action as very unfortunate and barbaric because Mrs M’membe has done nothing to be treated like a criminal. Mr Hichilema said the brutal action by police to an extent of tearing off the innocent women’s dress is unacceptable.
Mr Hichilema later proceeded to Zambia Police Headquarters to push for a bond together with Mrs M’membe’s lawyers. Upon arrival, all the senior cops who should handle the case scampered in all directions like rats to avoid facing Mr Hichilema.
The President described the situation as fear of being fired by Kampyongo and Lungu for discharging their normal duties.
