Release of HH suspected assassin by police angers UPND

Opposition UPND on the Copperbelt has strongly condemned police’s decision to release a suspected ring leader in the assassination attempt on its president Hakainde Hichilema in Ndola last week.

Provincial Information and publicity Secretary Kennedy Kalunga argued that Chile should not have been released on police bond because he was a danger to society as evidenced from the way he was harassing people using guns and other assortment of weapons.

Copperbelt Police Commissioner Joyce Kasosa confirmed the arrest of the PF cadre Chile  also known as Jerabo among fellow Jerabos. Ms Kasosa said Chile was arrested on Thursday and released on police bond the same day, but would appear in court next week on the charge of malicious damage.

But Mr Kalunga said Chile harassed people especially UPND cadres with weapons and at, one time fired a gun at the UPND offices in Ndola and so it was not right for the police to release him on bond.

“Chile should not have been released on police bond because he is a danger to the society. He was harassing and threatening people with guns and other weapons. He was literally beating and insulting police officers.

“He was carrying guns, pangas and other weapons and insulting people. Such kind of people should be kept in police custody or in  prison because if they are moving freely, the freedom of other people can suffer,” Mr Kalunga said. Chile was among Patriotic Front (PF) thugs who beat up UPND supporters who accompanied Mr Hichilema to Sun FM Radio Station in Ndola on Saturday last weekend.

“I don’t know his other name, I just know that he is Chile. He was arrested on Thursday and released on police bond on the same day. He is facing the charge of malicious damage and will appear in court next week,” Ms Kasosa said

    SHAME ON POLICE

    ZAMBIA POLICE MUST KNOW THAT THE SAME WAY PF CADRES HAVE ACCESSED GUNS AND PANGAS IS THE SAME WAY OPPOSITION PARTY CADRES CAN ACQUIRE THE SAME. SO ITS LOGICAL TO CONTROL THE SITUATION BEFORE OTHER TEAMS BECOME VIOLENCE.THIS BEHAVIOUR OF POLICE IS NOT HELPING MATTERS. THE POLICE MUST WORK AS PROFESSIONALS AS WE HAVE GOT ONLY ONE ZAMBIA. THE POLICE ARE DRAWING TAX PAYERS SALARIES AND THEREFORE, WE EXPECT THE STATE POLICE TO BE STRAIGHT IN DEALING WITH PF CADRES. PF CADRES ARE DESTROYING THIS COUNTRY TOGETHER WITH THEIR PRESIDENT . FOR WE EXPECTED PRESIDENT MICHEAL SATA TO STOP VIOLENCE BUT HE HAS FAILED TO CONTROL HIS CADRES. BUT YOU SHOULD REMMEMBER THAT HH HAS GOT FOLLOWERS AS WELL WHO CAN TURN VIOLENCE WORST THAN EXPECTED. BECAUSE A PERSON WHO KNOWS HE HAS GOT NOT PROTECTION FROM ANY WHERE ELSE TURNS TO BE MORE VICIOUS FOR SELF DEFENCE UNLIKE SOME ONE WHO KNOWS HE WILL GET HELP.SO PEOPLE ARE WATCHING THE UNPROFESSIONAL WAY OF DISCHARGE OF DUTY BY THE POLICE WITH GREAT DISMAY. tHERE IS ROOM FOR THE POLICE BEFORE EVERY CITIZEN STARTING TO THINK OTHER WISE.AS CAN BE SEEN NOW PF GOVERNMENT IS WORSE THAN UNIP DAYS.
