UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) vice-president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba has been summoned by Kasama Police for holding political meetings without notifying the police.
According to the Police in Kasama, Mr Mwamba has allegedly gone into hiding after police in Kasama sought him for “an interview” over meetings he held.
Northern Province acting commissioner of police Lackson Sakala said in an interview yesterday that Mr Mwamba has allegedly been holding political meetings without notifying the police.
Mr Sakala said Mr Mwamba has allegedly gone into hiding but that the police will “fish” him out.
“We want him to come to the police tomorrow for some interviews. He was holding meetings without notifying the police.
“He is in hiding and we are looking for him,” Mr Sakala said.
He urged Mr Mwamba to lead by example as a person who has served as a member of Parliament (MP).
“He has actually been a law-maker, so he should lead by example and abide by the laws of Zambia. If he wants to hold any meeting, he should notify the police,” he said.
Mr Sakala said the police will diligently execute their duties and firmly deal with individuals who break the law, regardless of their political affiliation.
“Anything to the contrary, we are not going to spare anyone because no-one is above the law,” he said.
And in a posting on his Facebook wall, Mr Mwamba admits that the police are looking for him and he will avail himself today.
