Police have arrested and tortured United Party for National Development (UPND) Chawama Constituency 2011 aspiring candidate, Morgan Muunda, for allegedly defaming President Rupiah Banda.
UPND Lusaka Province Youth Coordinator, Brian Hapunda, disclosed to QFM in an interview Sunday afternoon.
Mr. Hapunda says police on Saturday night arrested and abducted Mr. Muunda to kafue where they tortured him in the Kafue river, and threatened to kill him with a gun which they pointed on his anus.
Meanwhile, Mr. Hapunda has advised the arresting officer, a Mr. Daka of Chawama, to drop the alleged illegal charges against Mr. Muunda within 24 hours failure to which the UPND/PF youths will organise mass protests against the alleged illegal and unprofessional manner the police are operating in the contemporary.
He says it is unfortunate that the Police under President Rupiah Banda have introduced a double standard kind of law, one for the opposition and common citizens, while the other for the MMD and those in the corridors of power.
And Mr. Hapunda has challenged the police to arrest Copperbelt Province MMD Youth Treasurer, Chiko Chibale, who threatened to go to Western province with his thugs to manhandle Father Duffy for issuing a statement that the people in Western province want a change of government.
Mr. Hapunda also challenged the police to arrest Lusaka Province MMD Chairman, William Banda, who he says has on many occasions been threatening innocent citizens with violence.
He says if the police do not arrest the two mentioned MMD cadres, the UPND/PF youths will protest against its unprofessional operation.
