Movement for Multiparty Democracy (MMD) Serenje District Youth Chairperson Michael Mambwe is nursing wounds in Serenje District Hospital after being beaten by PF carders at Nchimishi in Chief Chibale’s area yesterday.
Both District Police Officer Commanding Daniel M’seteka and District Hospital Medical Doctor, Reached Kanki confirmed the incident to ZANIS.
M’seteka said the incident happened Monday around 18:00 hours when PF carders went to Mr. Mambwe’s home and started confronting him after which a fight ensued.
Dr. Kanki described the condition of Mambwe as critical and that medical staff were observing him.
Meanwhile MMD Serenje District Council Chairman Evans Chola has condemned the behavior of the suspected PF carders saying it was wrong for people in the ruling part to mistreat people over the elections.
Chola added that he was surprised that the police had let free the culprits who were involved in beating up the MMD official.
The victim was picked up by the police after a tip off from the general public.
