UPND Vice President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba commonly known as GBM has assured his supporters that he is in high spirit as he prepares for police questioning set for Woodlands Police Station on Wednesday.
Police in Lusaka originally planned to question Mr Mwamba on Tuesday over a police raid at his business premises in Lusaka where some youths were apprehended after they were found with what police called offensive weapons.
But Mr Mwamba has confirmed that he will attend the interviews at 09 Hours and that he is in high spirits.
He said the youths apprehended by police are not a militia wing of the UPND.
Mr Mwamba reiterated that it is the ruling PF that has a militia youth which he said disrupted the UPND’s recent mobilisation on the Copperbelt.
He has since thanked the UPND youths for having protected his delegation whilst on the Copperbelt.
“These thugs are the same ones that endangered the life of Hon Miles Sampa and numerous others on board a flight that was due to land at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe recently. The thugs are led by someone known as Chile 1, others are Tobi, Solo, Obert, Niza, Laz, Kabobola,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Lusaka Magistrate on Tuesday granted bail to 17 youths belonging to the UPND that were arrested by police after a raid at a business premises belonging to Mr. Mwamba.
The youths who included one female have been charged with offensive drilling.
