The Zambian Police says only a few family members and GBM’s legal representatives be allowed at the Woodlands Police Station premises when he appears at the Station for question on Wednesday.
Police Spokesperson Charity Muganga Chanda said the purported rally which will be addressed by UPND Vice President Geofrey Mwamba was nothing but a rumor as Mr Mwamba has been summoned in connection with the case involving 21 suspected UPND cadres apprehended from his premises.
Below is the statement issued by the Zambia Police.
The Zambia Police Service would like to dispel rumors going round that there will be a United Party for National Development (UPND) rally that will be held at Woodlands Police Station to be addressed by Mr Geoffrey Mwamba Bwalya on Wednesday 2nd March 2016 at 09:00 hours.
The correct position is that we have summoned Mr. Geoffrey Mwamba Bwalya in connection with the case involving the 21 suspected UPND cadres who were apprehended from his premises along Luanshya road on 28th February 2016.
What will be happening there are police investigations and not a political rally. Therefore only Mr Geoffrey Mwamba Bwalya, his legal representatives and a few family members will be allowed at the Police station.
We look forward to receiving maximum cooperation from the few individuals who will accompany Mr. Mwamba as unwanted people will not be tolerated.
