Heavily armed police officers in the company of known armed PF cadres have just arrested UPND Lusaka Province Chairman, Obvious Mwaliteta and driven him to an unknown destination.
According to eyewitnesses at the Lusaka Magistrates Court, heavily armed police in civil clothes moved in to airlift Mwaliteta shortly after the case was discontinued.
This is despite the State entering into a nolle prosequi in the matter that has been dragging for over a month.
But after some UPND youths demanded to know where Mwaliteta was being taken, police started firing live ammunition which resulted in some UPND youths suffering injuries ranging from broken legs, limbs and arms.
It is believed the Police, who have since driven Mwaliteta to an unknown destination, wants to charge him a fake case of aggravated robbery.
The owner of the said phone in this case has vehemently refused to accuse Mwaliteta of having stolen the phone which PF wants to use for the trumped up aggravated case against Mwaliteta.
PF like in the HH’s trumped up treason case even without investigations have gone ahead and treated him like a dangerous criminal.
The move is believed to be a calculated move aimed at pushing him to rejoin the PF.
Mwaliteta was on 27 March, 2019 arrested and charged with being in possession of offensive weapons.
