The UPND has condemned police in Mongu for indiscriminately using brutality in their quest to investigate the persons behind the fracas that occurred at Vice President, Inonge Wina’s residence in Nalolo district last week.

This follows the beating up of UPND Western Province Provincial vice Youth Chairperson, Mbangu Mbangu’s family, by armed police officers in Mongu in the early hours of Monday.

Police went to Mbangu’s house to seek him but did not find him.

UPND Kaoma District Coordinator, Kenny Ndumba, said the police officers, who executed the beatings, were being overzealous and their action was what President Edgar Lungu alluded to in his last press conference.

President Lungu, in answering to a query on political violence, said his government does not want to engage the police in resolving political violence as some officers can be excited when executing their duty.

Mr Ndumba said the police in Mongu exercised the very excitement that President Lungu talked about when they beat up innocent people who might not have even travelled to Nalolo district for them to be subjected to brutality.

He said Zambia is a Christian nation where dialogue should be used as opposed to violence just as the Head of State advised during the last press conference.

Mr Ndumba said even when there has been a change of government in Zambia all past presidents have handed over the mantle of power peacefully and this trend should continue.

He said that the use of police brutality to solve political violence will only breed more violence and eventually result in anarchy.

Efforts to get a comment from Western Province Police Commissioner, Standwell Lungu, failed as his mobile phone went unanswered.

  1. what do you expect from pf police? ba davies mwila pls make sure that these stray dogs called police are disciplined. you ordered them to stop mounting road blocks but they are seen doing so even in townships like chikola in chingola. once they are broke all they think off is mounting road blocks in order to get bribes.

  5. The police did not find Mbangu Mbangu at his house in the early hours of Monday morning. Well, where was he at that time of morning when normal people are sleeping? Why is he hiding and what is he hiding from? He went to commit more violence or ubuloshi? Have upnd cadres taken to witchcraft now?
    Anyway, you have to be mad to attack the Vice President’s family and hope to get away with it. That would apply even if HH was the Vice President, so don’t make empty arguments. Zambia police, pleSe sort out those upnd criminals. And where was this Kenny Ndumba another (upnd criminal) when inonge’sfamily was attAcked? Didn’t we call upon the upnd leadership including himself to condemn the criminals cum paid upnd cadres? Today he should be lecturing us about Christianity and prayers? No sir,…

  6. DEAL WITH UPND VIOLENT CADRES AND THEIR LEADERS. GBM WENT TO KASAMA AND PEOPLE IN MARKETS WERE AXED AND 3 OF HIS CADRES ARE IN POLICE REMAND YET GBM AND HH ARE DRINKING COFFEE.

    CAGING THESE CADRES IS THE BEST ZAMBIA POLICE CAN DO SO THAT OTHERS CAN LEARN THAT HH AND GBM WILL USE THEM AND DUMP THEM LIKE USED TISSUE.

    TO ALL THE YOUTHS ITS YOUR FAMILIES THAT WILL SUFFER WHEN YOU ARE IN JAIL HH AND GBM WILL NEVER EVEN BRING YOU A SWEET WHEN YOU ARE IN CELLS SO WAKE.

  7. In fact the police are even kind only to beat the unruly UPND trouble makers. Libongani why haven’t you involved young men and women from Kamfinsa and Lilayi who are still energetic to give good beating? Why should some body attack another person just because the other person differs on political affiliation! Don’t complain the police are carrying out their diligent duty of protecting innocent individuals like the Inonge Wina family. Why should people complain now for police action without condemning what happened to the relatives of the VP! “Mukula mbulu yange namaka”

  8. Police continue beating up the trouble shooters in that part of the country because they think they are untouchable.

  9. to all of you saluting the police for beating people, i think you have something wrong with your heads. no one deseres to be beaten PF, ADD, UPND or anyone for that matter. the police is actually decampaigning PF in the long run. any party in government that applies bias in application of the law does so at its own peril. what made MMD to go is partially because they were oppressing the opposition. i remember how they alledged that MCS had collapsed and i met him at the same guest house in Kaoma thats when i told myself that i dont need MMD anymore. if you care for PF, please tell them this barbaric practice of the police must be curtailed. whatever the police are doing is perceived to be coming from the party in government. perceptions are very difficult to erase unless with concrete…

      It appears that you are not aware that PF does not accept any more members which have IQ above 80? Only simpletons which believe in “90 days” and 2 million jobs are welcomed.

  12. The police in Zambia were initially called a police force. Now they have changed the name to police service and rendered themselves a police farce. That is the problem we have in this country; we do not adopt professionalism along with perceived name-change – we simply ape what we think will please index collectors and time wasters… Stop the brutality whether it is on UPND or UNDP, or UNIP…
