Police are still holding UPND Vice president for administration, Geoffrey Mwamba in custody.
Police on Friday arrested and charged Mr. Mwamba with proposing violence.
UPND spokesperson, Charles Kakoma told ZNBC News in Lusaka on Saturday that Mr. Mwamba is still held at Lusaka Central Police awaiting court hearing.
Mr. Kakoma said Mr. Mwamba’s lawyers are still trying to engage the Police on possibilities of granting him police bond.
He said it is unfortunate that the Police have denied Mr. Mwamba police bond when in fact the case is bondable.
Police on Friday Lusaka arrested and charged United Party for National Development (UPND) vice-president for administration Geoffrey Mwamba for allegedly proposing violence.
Police spokesperson Charity Chanda said this is in connection with a statement Mr Mwamba made on Wednesday this week that he would go for President Lungu’s throat.
Mrs Chanda said in an interview in Lusaka that Mr Mwamba committed an offence of proposing violence or breaches of the law to assemblies.
“Yes, we have arrested Mr Mwamba for proposing violence or breaches of the law to assemblies contrary to section 91(I) a and b of the Penal Code.
“This is in connection with the statement he made on March 2, 2016 proposing to cause death to President Lungu that he would go for his throat. Mr Mwamba is currently in custody,” Mrs Chanda said.
