Information has emerged that Zambia Police have taken special interest in UPND lawyer Martha Mushipe’s law firm because she is handling the in which the police savagely brutalised a UPND member at Woodlands Police station.
Sources within the police service and State House have revealed that the brutal incident that went viral on main stream and social media was so dehumanising and amounted to cruel and inhuman treatment which is against the constitution.
The police and government wings are very sensitive with anyone handling that case and they even ordered the Human Rights Commission to abandon the case despite the body’s earlier indication that they would pursue it.
Martha’s law firm is also handling other sensitive cases involving UPND members including that of Vice-President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba and others linked to UPND such as Chongwe MP Silvia Masebo.
There is also an attempt to plant in information on her law firm that would lead to the incriminating of UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and GBM into treason charges.
“We are very scared of the coming elections and so far we don’t think as PF we can win on a free and fair platform. We are looking for ways to postpone these elections and blame it on the opposition UPND. That’s why we keep heaping blame on the UPND for all problems affecting the country such mealie meal shortages and other issues. Even that letter by the criminal Shakafuswa brothers was drafted by OP as part of the steps towards the scheme to implicate innocent people and later defer the elections,” sources revealed.
As at now, police are still camped the law firm from yesterday while UPND supporters keep vigil.
