U nruly Patriotic Front thugs sent by Jean Kapata this afternoon beat Zambia Police service officers who offered security to the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema, his running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba and Dr. Maureen Mwanawasa.
The UPND President Mr. Hichilema was conducting a door to door campaign in the company of Lusaka aspiring Mayor Maureen Mwanawasa among other officials in Mandevu Constituency.
Hundreds of Mandevu Constituency residents thronged to the UPND entourage a move that agitated the PF thugs.
The police however offered security to Mr. Hichilema but PF cadres opposed the move and describing it as lack of respect to the sitting President Edgar Lungu.
The PF cadres then begun throwing stones at the UPND leaders and Police officers at Garden House Police post in Mandevu.
This move triggered the police to begin firing teargas canisters to PF cadres who also resorted to beating and insulting the police officers while accusing them of being UPND sympathisers.
And PF cadres beat up both the police and UPND members.
Meanwhile police managed to arrest the PF cadres who however continued insulting them for maintaining law and order.
