It has emerged that the UPND cadre who was shot and reported to have mysteriously disappeared from his Livingstone General hospital bed has in fact been arrested by Police and charged with threatening violence.
Home Affairs Minister Davis Mwila has disclosed that the UNPD cadre Mushaukwa Mushaukwa, who is alleged to have been short by PF Secretary General Davis Chama in Mulobezi, was arrested and charged shortly after being discharged from Hospital.
Mr. Mwila has further disclosed to Qfm News by telephone that Mr. Mushaukwa has however been released on Police bond.
He says the Police want the UPND cadre to help with investigations into the recent violence that took place in Mulobezi.
And Mr. Mwila says he finds the opposition UPND, which earlier disclosed in a statement that Mr. Mushaukwa had mysteriously disappeared from his hospital bed, to be a party of jokers.
Earlier, UPND Chairperson for Legal Jack Mwiimbu alleged that UPND cadre Mushaukwa Mushaukwa, who was allegedly shot by PF Secretary General Davies Chama in Mulobezi had mysteriously gone missing from his Livingstone General Hospital bed where he was receiving treatment.
Mr Mwiimbu told the media that this was a serious concern to the party especially that during UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s visit to his hospital bed yesterday, the victim revealed on camera that he was allegedly shot by the PF Secretary General Davies Chama and not the driver.
Mr Mwiimbu said that strangely, Mushaukwa had now gone missing from his hospital bed.
He further stated that the UPND would hold the Zambia Police and the PF government responsible for whatever happens to their party member whose whereabouts are currently not known.
