Kabwe Mayor Richard Bango’s son Kedrick Bango last night viciously assaulted Lazarous Mulomba, a UPND cadre for playing UPND songs in his father’s constituency. Beer bottles were used in hitting Mulomba as Kedrick boasted that he cannot be jailed because his father is Mayor and if arrested he would come out at once.
Kedrick who recently defiled a minor but was saved from jail due to his father’s intervention descended on Mulomba in Ngungu’s Manyoni area. Mulomba is currently at Kabwe General hospital where he is being treated, some medics have described his condition as critical. No arrests have been made as the police are waiting for the medical report to ascertain the charge but it is heard that Mayor Bango has already started negotiating for police not to arrest his notorious son.
After the assault, Kedrick was almost lynched by onlookers who have been incensed by his violence in the area thereby nicknaming him as the Ngungu Castro. Bango is PF Ngungu ward councillor and is currently aspiring to become the party’s MP for Bwacha constituency.
