Mazabuka Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo has been abducted by Zambia police from the Livingstone General Hospital.
UPND Livingstone District spokesperson Neto Halwabala confirmed that Nkombo was abducted from the hospital at midnight without hospital authorities.
Mr. Halwabala disclosed that a group of paramilitary officers went to the hospital to pick him up without hospital authorities in the middle of the night.
He said that the officer who picked Nkombo from the hospital told him that the police commissioner wanted to see him but was only surprised to be taken to the prison.
Mr. Halwabala said that the UPND is demanding an explanation from both police and hosp-ital on what happened to their member.
He charged the current situation was not heath for Nkombo adding that UPND will not accept any lies but the truth.
And a check on Saturday afternoon found that Nkombo was not in the hospital.
Efforts to get a comment from the police proved futile by press time but hospital authorities confirmed the development.
