The PF government is scheming to arrest UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and his vice Geoffrey Mwamba and charge them with unbailable treason charges.
HOME Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has confirmed that Hichilema referred to by many as HH will be arrested for insisting that the 2016 general elections be heard before the courts of law.
Kampyongo told a media briefing this morning that he will direct the police to arrest HH and any other citizen who will insist that the election petition be heard.
Kampyongo urged journalists to report to Hichilema that he will arrest him, “You close to him, go and tell him that Kampyongo has said he will arrest you, and anyone who will be spreading reports that the petition be heard will be arrested, and charged with treason and will be dealt with firmly.”
Kampyongo further said he will not allow the police to give UPND a permit to hold a rally because he will sway people that President Lungu is not President.
