A Kafue Resident Emmanuel Nangwale has told Zambian Eye that he was on Thursday badly beaten and detained by the police for being a Tonga by tribe.

 

The incidence happened at Kafue Estate Police Post where Nangwale had escorted his friends to collect police reports so they can replace their National Registration Cards (NRC) and register as voters.

 

He narrated in an interview that when police discovered that he was Tonga, they told him that he was going to be beaten in revenge of the alleged Bweengwa attacks on the Police last Saturday in Monze.

 

Nangwale said he was beaten, detained for about six hours. He said he was only rescued by Kafue Police In-charge who concidently passed through the Police Post and ordered for his release. He says he was first accused of unlawful assembly but when he challenged the police that he was not in any assembly the charge was changed to misconduct likely to cause breach of peace.

 

And UPND Kafue Deputy constituency Secretary Mudenda charged that what happenined to Nangwale whom he saidentfied as a party member was disheartening.

 

Mudenda said:

 

“It is disheatening this morning a member of our party was briefly detained by the Police in revenge of the alleged Bweengwa attacks on the Police. The poor man simply escorted people who wanted a police report (for having lost NRCs). The report was to enable them replace their lost NRCs. To his surprise, the Police asked him whether he was a Tonga or not even before attempting to attend to his problem. (He was accused of unlawful assembly and misconduct likely to cause havoc). As soon as he responded in affirmative, they told him that they were going to give him a beating of his life before he can administer his Bweengwa discipline on them.

 

They sorted him out good and throw him into the cooler. In there the fellow inmates also had a field day and baptized him with further punishment. Some officers were heard saying he should rot there until after elections. The poor chap was only rescued by the Officer in Charge Kafue Police who coincidentally passed through there and inquired what the badly beaten man had done. Without any good response from his officers, he ordered them to release him forthwith. It however took a good number of hours before the instruction was carried out. All this took place at Kafue Estates Police Post. Are we safe under ECL or the political game has changed?”

 

Police in Kafue could not be reached for a comment Friday morning.

 

Nangwale by 8am Friday morning was at Kafue Police station to report the incidence.

 

We shall give you update as the story develops.

  1. ECL you are the Republican Press of Zambia why are you acting like you are not. Take it easy, you never know who the next press of Zambia will be. Emulate the previous Press who ruled this country without any problem. Your one year in office has been something else. I supported you but i am becoming worried of the happening in the country.

  2. This is all because of the failed Pf, Lungu should realise that he is the president for all the Zambian people regardless of their tribe & political affiliation, otherwise, pf a desperate political party.

    • Mr silencer, are you marking spelling here? Get the point Mary is saying, period! PF is a pathetic party & very divisive, with failed & pathetic leaders, Zulu Kaizer shoot a citizen of this country & the case has died a natural death, Zambians are watching the selective application of justice in this country & time will judge us whether we like it or not.

  5. The story sounds made up under the influence of kachasu. Is Zambia a failed state to witness such nonsense? To start with if the story was true and Zambia was still a Nation, the Officer In Charge would have disciplined/charged his officers immediately after collecting the facts.

    Has this country gone so low?

  7. Repression is a sign of desperation and desperation comes when one has failed to deliver. where there is anger there is no wisdom and the opposite is true. Let me remind every body the official languages at any Police station are English…Yes Sir! and Nyanja…Inde Bwana..otherwise uzakambila kusogolo
