UPND will not stop escorting leaders to police stations- Siakalima

Political Advisor to UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has said UPND cadres will not stop escorting their party leaders to the Police Stations.

Mr. Douglas Siakalima has told the Zambia Watchdog that there is no law in Zambia that prescribes who and when to visit public places.

Mr. Siakalima said Police Stations just like government hospitals are public places and can’t be restricted areas.

He said the announcement by Home Affairs Minister Edgar Lungu was null and void because Zambia was not under a state of emergency.

He said even the time of one party dictatorship under President Kenneth Kaunda, Police stations were open to the public but only taking of photographs was restricted.

“It is a futile move, even the time of Kaunda the only sign you could see on police stations was photographing prohibited” he said.

Mr. Siakalima said the PF government will find its match in the UPND because it will not tolerate political chauvinism.

“Next time these people will be prescribing who and when to go to the hospital because government hospitals are just like police stations.

He also said President Sata as a dictator will end up badly together with his family because history has shown that dictators families also suffer.

He gave an example of  Saddam Hussein, Gaddafi, Mubarak and the former Tunisian president’s families that are now suffering because of their parents.
