Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Police in Luanshya have arrested National Democratic Congress (NDC) Lusaka District Chairman Andrew Lupindula.

According to the NDC media department, Lupindula was arrested after he, in the company of other NDC officials, had gone to report an alleged shooting incident at NDC consultant Chishimba Kambwili’s residence.

Campaigns are at a crescendo in Roan Constituency in the run up to this week’s by-election that was necessitated by the expulsion of incumbent MP Chishimba Kambwili from the ruling Patriotic Front (PF).

The NDC is fielding Joseph Chishala whose main competition is the ruling party’s Joel Chibuye.

Below is a report by the NDC media department.

The Police in Luanshya have arrested National Democratic Congress (NDC) Lusaka District Chairman Andrew Lupindula.

This was after the NDC leadership and members had gone to report the shooting at Dr. Chishimba Kambwili’s house.

The NDC had earlier gone to report the suspected ballot papers at Choolwe lodge but the police did nothing. This time around, the NDC went to report the shooting at Dr. Kambwili’s house but matters took an interesting turn when PF cadres stormed the police station and accused Lupindula and other NDC members of stoning their vehicles.

As per custom with the Zambia Police that is currently working under so much intimidation from the PF, Andrew was immediately arrested at the command of the cadres.

Copperbelt province Police Commissioner Charity Katanga was on hand to ensure that the police arrested the NDC district chairman. She personally supervised the arrest and as usual was not interested to hear what the opposition had to say but only bent to please her pay masters. Kaizer Zulu had also left Choolwe lodge and was at the police station talking to the senior police officers in their office.

It is sad that the police cannot move when the opposition report but are quick to move when the cadres and PF officials fabricate lies against the opposition.
