Matero Member of Parliament Miles Sampa has disclosed that the Zambia Police Service on the Copperbelt has cancelled his scheduled press conference in Kitwe today.
The former Commerce, Trade and Industries Deputy Minister was supposed to have a press conference at Moba Hotel in Kitwe at 14:30hrs but later announced that it has been called off by the police.
The Matero Lawmaker resigned from the ruling party on Thursday saying the decision was as a result of intolerance, hate, vengeance and violent conduct towards party members; including those who supported him at the Kabwe convention in 2014.
But Copperbelt Police Commissioner Charity Katanga has however denied the claims by Mr. Sampa saying the police have not cancelled any event organized by him.
Ms Katanga tells QFM News via telephone that as a Police Commissioner, she is not aware that Mr. Sampa’s event was called off.
She says she has not directed any officer to cancel the briefing for Mr. Sampa.
