Kasama Central Patriotic Front Member of Parliament Geoffrey Mwamba has been reported to Police by his sister-in-law for allegedly threatening violence.
Doreen Sefuke who is married to Mr. Mwamba’s young brother reported the MP to Emmasdale police station around 11:40 hours today.
Mrs. Sefuke says she has reported the Parliamentarian, popularly known as GBM, to police for physical harassment and threatening violence, when she attempted to follow up on the 11. 5 million kwacha debt owed by Mr. Mwamba’s Company.
She says Mr. Mwamba in the full view of some police officers at Manda Hill Police station on Tuesday physically harassed her and threatened to beat her up at the police station.
Mrs Sefuke says she had gone to report Mr Mwamba after he threatened to beat her for asking for the money which was due to her, when he followed her and continued with his threats.
She said she is suing Mr. Mwamba not because of the money but on principle of violence against women.
But when contacted for a comment, Mr. Mwamba denied the allegations leveled against him by Mrs. Sefuke.
Mr. Mwamba accused Mrs. Sefuke of being a hired MMD member who is out to tarnish his political image.
Mr. Mwamba says Mrs. Sefuke should have channeled any complaint against him to his young brother, other than going to speak to him directly.
Mr. Mwamba also challenged Mrs. Sefuke to proceed with legal action.
The Lusaka Magistrates Court recently discontinued a case of wife battery against Mr Mwamba after he reconciled with his wife.
Mr Mwamba had been charged with battering his wife Chama.
