The scheme by the PF regime to implicate UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and his party in the on going gassing of citizens is in high gear with the latest arrested of Charles Sinyangwe, the 2016 UPND candidate for Nakonde constituency in Northern Province and some other suspects in Eastern Province this morning.
Mr. Sinyangwe is currently being driven to Chinsali District in Muchinga Province where they will link him to gassing of citizens.
Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo who is among those masterminding this gassing of citizens operations is currently in Muchinga Province where he blamed the opposition for the gassing of citizens.
And latest information from the Police Command indicates that there are differences within the service with a few like Deputy Inspector General of the Police Bonny Kapeso siding with politicians like Kampyongo and Kennedy Kamba to implicate Mr. Hichilema and have him arrested on treason charges while Inspector General of the Police Kakoma Kanganja is still opposed to taking the political route in handling this crime.
Sources say the ultimate motive for Kampyongo, Kennedy Kamba and Bonny Kapeso is to lead to a situation where the citizens will react when HH is arrested and result in the firing of Kanganja so that Bonny Kapeso takes over as the IG.
In Eastern Province, state operatives Malon Banda and Given Phiri were arrested by state police and when they were interrogated, they admitted to being among those that have been sent to gass people. The two were given brand new UPND cards and are currently being driven to Lusaka where they will be coached on how to implicate the UPND President Mr. Hichilema and have him arrested on treason with other UPND members.
Some people that will be arrested will simply be given money to implicate Mr. Hichilema in the gassing of citizens.
So far, the whole gassing operation has backfired as citizens have implicated the state and the PF regime of being behind the gassing, going by the length it has taken from the time it started on the Copperbelt.
The operation is also being executed in a manner that a mere citizen can’t manage unless the state.
