Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini has directed Home Affairs Minister Davies Mwila to issue a ministerial statement on the continued heavy presence of Paramilitary Police officers in Choma district.

This follows a point of order raised by Choma central Member of Parliament Cornelius Mweetwa over the continued heavy presence of Police officers whom he said are arbitrary arresting people.

Mr Mweetwa wondered whether Choma is under a curfew which has not been officially declared in view of the heavy police presence.

He said his office has received numerous complaints from the residents of Choma over the harassment they are being subjected to by Police officers at night.

Police were deployed to Choma following the outbreak of political violence last month.

And the Speaker has also directed the Home Affairs Minister to issue a ministerial statement on the arrest of alleged UPND militia members.

Behave as national leaders not regional or party caders. Throw away your parties and tribes. Be Zambians all the time. After lungu one of U
