Police summon HH again (updated)

Police in Lusaka have issued a fresh summon to UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema for questioning after realising the first one had date for last month.

The new summons requires Hichilema go to the police Thursday at 10 hours, according to his lawyers.

The police have not said what the questioning is in connection with but said he should report at police headquarters .

In their earliar summon, police made a mistake on the call-out seen by the Watchdog.  Instead of writing August 8, the police wrote July 8.

The wrong call out read: ‘I have to inform you Mr. Hakainde Hichilema, said to be in employment is required at Lusaka Headquarters at 15 hours on 8th July for the purpose of interview/discussion.

‘Signed by senior supretendant katoka whose phone number is ….’.

A few weeks ago, police under the instructions and orders  of defence minister summoned Hichilema for referring to president Sata as ‘Chimbwi no plan’ (CNP).

But police sources say Hichilema this time is being wanted for addressing students at Evely Hone college without a permit. They say he is also wanted for calling on the PF government to dialogue over minimum wage.

Labour minister Fackson Shamenda revealed that he will order police to arrest anyone who opposes the minimum wage imposition.
