In the video, suspected UPND cadres adorned in their party regalia are seen lynching a lone suspected PF cadre.

However, the police have denied receiving an official report about such an incident but were quick to encourage anyone with information to come forward and report.

“Effort’s have been made and are still being made to locate the victim and place of this incident. So far Police officers have been dispatched to Southern and Western Provinces to try and locate the victim of this incident.

“We are therefore appealing to any person or persons who may know the whereabouts of this victim to report to the nearest police station so that the offenders can be brought to book. We would like to still appeal to all peace-loving Zambians to desist from engaging in violent activities. As Zambia Police Service we will sternly deal with perpetrators of violence regardless of their political affiliation.” Police said in  press release.
