STATEMENT FROM THE OFFICE OF INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE
As Zambia Police, we have closely analyzed what transpired in Mongu District of Western Province on Saturday, 08th April, 2017 where UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema and other persons in his entourage obstructed the Presidential motorcade.
It has been established that the opposition leader disobeyed Police orders to give way to the Presidential motorcade on Limulunga road in an attempt to put the life of the Republican President in danger.
I would like to inform the nation that we have jointly charged and arrested Mr Hakainde Hichilema and five others with:
The dockets of case will be taken to the Director of Public Prosecutions for further dealings.
Those jointly charged with Mr Hichilema are:
Suffice to state that Police could not charge Mr Hichilema yesterday reasons being that one of his lawyers requested that the other lawyers be present who never showed up. The Lawyer further requested that their client be charged today with all lawyers present.
Furthermore, 12 other UPND members have also been arrested for Obstructing Police officers in the due execution of duty which is contrary to section 250(b) of the Penal Code.
I wish to reiterate that the actions by the opposition leader were unreasonable, reckless and criminal. Therefore, members of the public are being warned that as Police we are not going to watch such kind of behavior by any person irrespective of their status or political affiliation.
We shall ensure that all those that would want to cause unnecessary anarchy are arrested and prosecuted.
INSPECTOR GENERAL OF POLICE
