State House has finally resolved to arrest lawyer Keith Mweemba.
During a meeting held at State House two weeks ago attended by Amos Chanda, Deputy Inspector General of Police Bonny Kapeso, Presidential Affairs Minister Freedom Sikazwe, Justice Minister Given Lubinda and officers from a group called Cyberspace cracksquad, it was resolved that Mweemba be arrested as he has been embarrassing the State during court sessions.
According to sources that attended the meeting, there is a feeling that some UPND members were deliberately insulting President Edgar Lungu with impunity knowing that lawyers like Keith Mweemba would defend them in court.
But officers tasked to carry out this operation stated that it was difficult for them to carry out such an operation, but Amos Chanda told them to raid Keith Mweemba’s law firm and his house and grab his computers, phones and other materials and if nothing implicating was found, they would plant pornography and arrest him for being in possession of obscene materials.
Other than that, the officers under cyberspace cracksquad were ordered to ransack the Keith Mweemba law firm and close it so that it can stop offering legal services to Zambians.
Recently the PF set up a cyberspace cracksquad which has infiltrated most of the WhatsApp groups especially those for the UPND.
So far one group identified is called UPND TASKFORCE (U.T.F) whose members will face arrests as the secret agents of State House are monitoring the chats in that group.
A list has also been drawn of people to be arrested and this include Keith Mweemba the lawyer, Roy Makayi the student who is said to have insulted Edgar Lungu when Hichilema was in jail for treason, Abel Mschili, and Paul Siambala.
Apparently, someone in the meeting cheated that Keith Mweemba was representing Makayi in court yet he’s not one of the defense team members in the case.
Others to be arrested under the politically influenced cyberspace cracksquad include Journalists Clayson Hamasaka, Brian Mwiinga who are in the UPND President’s press office.
On Keith Mweemba, the plan is to incapacitate him so that he becomes ineffective and stop offering legal services.
In the meeting, Sikazwe even stated that once Keith Mweemba is arrested and his law firm closed, LAZ will not act as it is in their armpits and had already agreed to back the operation.
