Lungu personally knows the girl killed by his PF police

Outgoing President Edgar Lungu personally knows the girl who was shot dead by his PF police and is a personal friend to the father to the deceased.
The late Mapenzi Chibulo’s family are neighbours with the young sister to first Lady Esher Lungu in Jack Compound and are close to a place where President Lungu used to drink Kachasu from at a ‘bar’ that was popularly called ‘pa ba maake Andala.’
‘Actually the father to the girl used to buy some castle lager for Lungu before he joined politics,’ said one resident of Jack Compound while sipping Mosi beer.
And some PF members in the area who personally knew the deceased expressed sadness at the level of violence perpetrated by the PF and said they can no longer vote for such a party.
‘I am PF but I am so devastated because I have lost a friend, how do I vote for PF with this kind of conduct? Asked one lady.
Mapenzi was shot by the PF police on Friday after President Lungu ordered his PF Police to cancel the ‘permit ‘for the UPND rally which was to be held in Chawama at the last minute.
President Lungu always attends funerals of his former neighbours and friends in Jack Compound but has not attended this one though his sister-in-law is attending the funeral.
According to the latest funeral programme, Mapenzi will be buried at Leopards Hill Memorial Park cemetery on Monday after which family members will proceed to Southern Province.
Dozens of PF police officers in riot gear were dispatched to Chawama after they heard that Hakainde Hichilema was visiting the funeral house on Sunday morning.
