05TH JUNE, 2018 – We received a report that people who were going to vote at a School in Kalundu area were being waylaid by some suspected UPND caders camping in the area and were beating them up.
They are also reported to have gone to the PF camp and damaged some motor vehicles belonging to PF supporters and one person was injured and rushed to Kanyama first level hospital, later referred to UTH due to head injuries.
Officers have been deployed to the area and order has been restored. Investigations have been instituted to bring to book perpetrators.
In Mundawanga, some UPND and PF Officials are reported to have imported cadres to the area which resulted in commotion. However , sanity has been restored.
We urge all political players to keep the peace and avoid acts that may bring confusion during the remaining period of the Chilanga bye elections.
