Main opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema Sunday duped the state when he announced that he will be touring Chawama constituency.

By 8AM Police in riot gear were seen patrolling streets of Chawama anticipating to block HH who last week was stopped from donating a power Generator.

HH does not announce such visits. A UPND Insider tells Zambian Eye that it was a planned scheme to see how government would react.

The UPND president did not even attempt to go to Chawama and later posted the following message on Facebook:

We understand there was heavy police presence in the streets of Chawama constituency today. All this we are informed was in effort to stop us from doing some charity work and blocking us from a planned tour of Chawama.

The heavy presence of police officers in Chawama today should be a daily routine to protect our citizens, as opposed to blocking one individual whose right of movement is guaranteed by the constitution.

We fully sympathise with police officers for being abused in such a manner. When citizens notify the police to conduct a peaceful protest, hold a rally or any public event, the usual response is that there is not enough manpower. But here we are with heavy police presence in the streets of Chawama mobilised at short notice for only one individual.

As UPND when we take over the reigns of power in 2021 from day one, we shall undertake to restore the rule of law and ensure all citizens regardless of political affiliation, enjoy all fundamental freedoms and basic rights as enshrined in our constitution.

To the police, please remain there and other places to protect property and life in Chawama.

  1. Just as much as HH needs to enjoy his rights of association and movement, being apublic figure he is, he also needs security by state agents. Don’t think that all those people who throng him are friendly. So the presence of police officers is not meant to intimidate anyone but to provide security just like we are when the republican president is costing.

    • @Goodson, stop hallucinating! Those police are not there to protect a perceived enemy and thorny in the PF flesh.
