Zambia police Deputy Spokesperson Rae Hamoonga has appealed to members of the public to tip off the police with information leading to the arrest of suspected Patriotic Front (PF) cadres who allegedly killed a University of Zambia (UNZA) student opposing the ruling party, reports Pan African Radio Journalist Hermit Hachilonde.
On 24th June, 2016 a United Party for National Development (UPND) supporter Malesu Mukonka was slain by suspected PF cadres for cladding himself with the UPND regalia in Lusaka.
Mukonka a fourth year student was subsequently rushed to Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital where he later died on Monday the 27th June, 2016.
Mr. Hamoonga noted that the Police Service is having challenges investigating the case because the deceased was left unconscious after the attack.
“We appeal to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the culprits” Mr. Hamoonga said
Meanwhile UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has made assertions that President Edgar Lungu has a hand in the deaths of most UPND supporters.
Hichilema has since urged President Lungu to think twice on his uncalled for attitude towards his desire to retain power on 11th August 2016 as Zambians are determined to vote him out.
“Lungu must stop killing citizens because after 11th August, 2016 he will no longer be president of Zambia” he said
