Another United Party for National Development (UPND) member has been murdered by Patriotic Front cadres commandeered by Lusaka Province Youth Chairperson Kennedy Kamba.
Sources from the Police intelligence unit have disclosed that Lewis Mwila was murdered by PF cadres between Tuesday night and Wednesday early morning.
The sources say the group of PF cadres that murdered Mwila is the same group that caused Mayhem at the Youth Day celebrations in full view of Vice President Inonge Wina.
” We have to question Kennnedy Kamba because the suspects are the same that caused problems at the Freedom Statue during the Youth day celebrations and Kamba is the commander of this group,” one officer said.
The other officer however lamented that on several times, Police have asked to question Kamba including on the violence at Freedom Statue but the Inspector General of Police has stopped them because he has instructions from State House.
” We have been told never to touch Kamba. The other day we wanted to talk to him he was with the President and IG in Chelstone at the official hand over of Police Houses. How can you summon such a person? That person in the picture in sunglasses behind President Lungu swinging is Kamba. So at the office we wondered to say how can a President that condemns violence bé with Kamba who is wanted by the Police,” the source said.
Chilanga Member of Parliament Keith Mukata visited the family of the slain UPND member yesterday.
Lewis Mwila was murdered a day when another PF cadre who killed Glazer Matapa Shadreck Chibebe appeared in the Lusaka Magistrate Court for explaination of murder charges.
MUVI TV VERSION:
Family members and the decead’s friends told Muvi TV that Lewis lodged complaints to the police about the PF cadres who were trailing him and his friends over their move to work with Keith Mukata and the UPND, but as usual the PF police being headed by Kakoma Kanganja rubbished the complaint despite showing them anonymous letters to stop working with Hon. Mukata and the UPND.
According to Muvi TV, in the evenings of 5 April 2016 PF thugs abducted, killed and hanged the body of Lewis Mwila with a wire to a branch of a tree less than 1 metre from the ground. Passersby found Lewis’ Body in a sitting position in the early hours of Wednesday 6 April 2016.
Meanwhile, Chilanga member of parliament Keith Mukata regrets the death of Lewis charging that PF should go after him instead of gruesomely murdering innocent citizens who are exercising their democratic right of belonging to any political party of their choice.
Recently, three church mother bodies called a meeting for political parties which was aimed at addressing various national issues to mitigate the escalating political violence in the country. The meeting was concluded and a communique was issued to be implemented by all stakeholders, recent indications show that nothing has been done by the President to implement this as PF cadres and leaders have continued with what they do best, violence and hate speech.
