the police on the UPND cadres.

And the UPND has vowed to stage serious nationwide demonstrations.
Douglas Syakalima told reporters Thursday that what was witness on Wednesday was nothing.
He said the few youths who were brutalised by the police were only from one branch in Lusaka but that will soon more youths to demonstrate.

MMD Treasurer Mwansa Mbulakulima says the behavior exhibited by Lusaka province commissioner of police Charity Katanga only shows that she has turned herself into a PF cadre.

Mr. Mbulakulima has warned Ms. Katanga to be careful with how she conducts herself during operations stating that she might be currently pleasing her masters and making a name for herself but risks making history by being the first Zambian to stand before the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Speaking at a media briefing this morning, Mr. Mbulakulima says Ms Katanga, as a woman, should have been more systematic in handling the UPND youths who were trying to protest.

He says Ms Katanga, being a professional she is known to be, must have used the professional methods of crowd control instead of declaring war on the youths who are Zambian citizens.

Mr. Mbulakulima has since challenged the Lusaka province police commissioner to clearly state what she meant when she stated that what happened yesterday was just the beginning of things to come.
