Police attempt to block HH in Mongu

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |


More than 300 heavily armed Police in Mongu, Western Province, have once again blocked meetings by UPND president Hakainde Hichilema.


The police also blocked roads leading to Limulunga, the Litunga’s palace, where the UPND leader was paying a courtesy call on the Litunga, especially after he lost his wife recently.


The Litunga has personally intervened through his Indunas from Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) who have questioned the police on why they are stopping Mr. Hichilema from greeting him after he (the Litunga) lost his wife.


UPND president Hakainde Hichilema said there was total breakdown of the law in Zambia, where people now cannot even be allowed to visit funeral homes, unless with a police permit.


Mr. Hichilema said the UPND team also has police notification to hold their in-door meetings, but police now want to cancel them at short notice.


The Indunas from BRE have since directly sought audience with the police to find out what was wrong for anyone to visit the Litunga, who has just lost his wife.


More details later as as the story is still unfolding.
