Police have charged UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema with treason.
Treason is an attempt to overthrow government.
According to UPND lawyer Jack Mwiimbu police have not yet officially charged HH but had detained him on treason charges before recording a warn and caution statement from him.
Mwiimbu explained that the charge was nonsensical and complained that the police were acting on orders from officials in the ruling party.
“The reason behind that charge is that Treason is non bailable. The charge is nonsensical and no sensible lawyer can come up with such a charge. There is no Treason that was committed along that Limulunga Road on that basis. That is just being nonsensical. And the unfortunate part is that the police are being unprofessional considering that it is the PF who have been proposing that HH must be charged with Treason,” said Mwiimbi.
