PF charges UPND officials with aggravated robbery

 

Police in Kasama have been forced by Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo to slap UPND deputy secretary general Patrick Mucheleka, UPND Lukashya Constituency campaign Manager Elias Mubanga and Samuel Ngwira with aggravated robbery.

The charge of aggravated robbery is none bailable, just like was the case with Mwaliteta and team which means the three will remain in police custody until the case is disposed off in the courts of law which can even take 2 years or more.

None of the three were at the place where NRC equipment was confiscated by some unknown cadres in the video circulating on social media.

Sources indicate that the PF are also scheming to link the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema to the same case and keep him in detention until after elections since the charge is none bailable.

One of the accused Mr. Elias Mubanga is also the UPND aspiring candidate for Shiwangandu constituency where Kampyongo is area MP.

Mr. Mubanga has given Kampyongo some tough time in Shiwangandu so Kampyongo wants to knock out his political opponent in next year’s elections.

Mr. Mucheleka has taken the UPND in Northern Province to another level in popularity as seen by the multitudes attending the UPND rallies.

Confirming the development in an interview, Northern Province Police Commissioner Richard Mweene disclosed that the trio allegedly attacked a mobile NRC registration office, stole a printer and genset, and other items.

Recently PF thugs led by JJ Banda raided Lusaka Province Police Headquarters, beat up police officers and stole money and other items but they were given less charges.

Sometime back UPND Lusaka Province Chairperson Obvious Mwaliteta languished in jail after being slapped with the same charge. He was acquitted by the Lusaka High Court and has since sued the state.

    It is only under a dictatorial regime of PF where when opposition members try to stop criminal activities such as issuing NRCs to foreigners and under aged children, the police is forced to charge them with aggravated robbery. Why should a country be safeguarding criminals and punishing people who want to restore law and order? I hope decent Zambians will vote wisely in 2021 to restore decency, rule of law and security in Zambia.

    PF feeling the heat thus the persecution of change drivers in the opposition, however PF should ensure the ground they are treading is completely dry as slippage would hurt them more! What goes around comes around but it could have mutated into something else as it comes around!

    Mucheleka should differentiate between PF and govenment. You went at attacked civil servants and stole state property using violence. That is clear aggravated robbery. Like your leader says, nomba balakuchita ububi chikkala

    PF IS ABUSING POWER WITH IMPUNITY. THEY CREATE FAKE CHARGES NON-BAILABLE CHARGES. EVENTUALLY WE NEED TO CHANGE THE LAW AND ENSURE THAT SUCH THAT MAYBE ONLY MURDER IS NOT BAILABLE.

    Ba Mucheleka, mwikala patalala mwine apatalalika. Pilikiti pilikiti tanasha fikali. You see now what your stubborness has brought you, my friend. And you expect your madam to be visiting you in prison from Lusaka?
