We are actually not investigating Dr Mumba at all- Zambia Police
THE Zambia Police says it has no intention of arresting MMD presidential aspirant Nevers Mumba and denying him a chance to contest the MMD presidency.
Police spokesperson Elizabeth Kanjela said in an interview in Lusaka yesterday that Dr Mumba is not being investigated by the police for him to claim that the law enforcement wing intends to arrest him and put his political career in jeopardy.
Dr Mumba told party members in Mumbwa that the police want to arrest and lock him up without police bond until the May 25 MMD provincial conferences are concluded.
“We are actually not investigating Dr Mumba at all and the concerns he has raised are not true. If the police are to arrest Dr Mumba, like any other Zambian, we need to investigate him and we would not deny him police bond,” Ms Kanjela said.
She said the police have no plans to arrest Dr Mumba because he is not being investigated for any offence.
Ms Kanjela said Dr Mumba should continue with his normal life because he is a Zambian who enjoys constitutional rights.
She said Dr Mumba can raise his concerns if the police are investigating but the law enforcement agency is not probing the former diplomat at the moment.
