Police briefly arrested 37 Patriotic Front (PF) thugs in Mufumbwe Constituency for conduct likely to cause confusion in the run up to the By-elections.
The thugs are all imported from the Copperbelt and were in PF material.
The 37 PF cadres were arrested in Mufumbwe for conduct likely to cause breach of peace after causing unnecessary confusion.
This was just after PF’s Steven Masumba, MMD’s Mulusa, and UNIP’s Stephen Kamwendo filed their nominations.
But the thugs were released almost immediately.
