The Zambia Police Service has urged people who were allegedly assaulted by suspected MMD cadres over the weekend in Chongwe to expose their assailants.
Lusaka Division Commanding Officer Mhlakeni Zulu says police can not start witch hunting and that it is up to complainants to identify people behind the attacks.
Mr Zulu has told ZNBC News that that the Zambia police Service has received formal complaints through Chongwe police station that they should identify the cadres who allegedly assaulted them.
Mr Zulu has also dismissed media reports that police had deployed officers in a named village in Chongwe district.
He says the only police officers that deployed to Chongwe were those assigned at the MMD rally.
He further says the Zambia Police Service had information that the PF cadres were planning to block the president on his way to Chongwe and had to keep vigil.
Mr Zulu has also appealed to political parties to learn to co- exist as the country goes to the polls this month.
