Police Violence: Cop threatens to shoot UPND cadre in Kasama

Over-zealousness of PF police has spread to Northern Province with police commissioner Bonny Kapeso and his officers threatening to shoot UPND cadres in Kasama for displaying their party’s regalia in public.
On Tuesday last week, Kapeso personally pointed a pistol at a UPND cadre Frank Kabwe for refusing to pull down a party chitenge flag hovering from a pole.
Kapeso using his official car took to the streets of Kasama to remove all UPND chitenge materials stuck to different poles following instructions he got from his superiors in Lusaka.
He later threatened to shot Kabwe in the chest for disobeying his
orders of removing UPND chitenges tied to a pole.
However, Kabwe resisted Kapeso’s unprofessional orders forcing the police commissioner offered a K10 bribe to the UPND cadre to pull down his party chitenges from the wooden pole.
But what is surprising is that Kapeso has allowed PF chitenges to be stuck to metal poles around Kasama town while the opposition campaign materials were being removed at will.
UPND Northern Province chairman Nathan Ilunga has labelled Kapeso a PF cadre with ill-motive to frustrate the opposition from campaigning in the region.
Ilunga said Kapeso is a danger to national peace and must be caged. He advised the top police command to immediately discipline Kapeso for using a firearm to threaten innocent people’s lives.
