Patriotic Front leader (PF) Michael Sata says chief government spokesperson Ronnie Shikapwasha, the Drug Enforcement Commission and the Zambia police should be ashamed of their allegations that his cadres were the ones that fired tear gas canisters at the police.
Mr. Sata questioned why the Zambia police did not arrest the cadres who they claimed had missiles and tear-gas canisters, to exhibit them to the people.
He noted that tear gas canisters and fire arms are only found with the military personnel and challenged anyone with evidence to substantiate the allegations that the PF is in possession of fire arms to prove the allegations.
Mr. Sata added that it will be only possible that the PF cadres were in possession of tear gas canisters if the police officers personally gave the cadres the canisters, a situation he described as impossible.
Meanwhile, the PF leader has expressed his heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family of late All People,s Congress (APC) party leader, Kenny Ngondo.
Mr. Sata said the opposition has been robbed of one of the vibrant leaders in the opposition.
Mr. Ngondo died in Lusaka yesterday after an illness.
