Police in Lusaka have arrested five UPND cadres after they were found defacing PF billboards along Cairo road on Sunday night.

The five are Lawrence Banda, Soft Bwalya, Benjamin Mavuli, Simonda Simonda and Jaid Hamize.

Police Deputy Spokesman Rae Hamoonga said the cadre were found removing PF posters and replacing them with their posters along Cairo road yesterday between 22:00 and 23:00 Hours.

Mr Hamoonga said the cadres were using a Toyota Land Cruiser Registration AAL 5818 and upon searching the motor vehicle two machetes were found.

“The same also injured Kasosa Mukuka in the head who sustained a cut in the head after confronting them.

Mukuka has since been issued with a medical report.

The five have been charged with assault and contravention of the Code of Conduct of the Electoral Process Act 35 of 2016.

    • There is zero change for a violent opposition party that is stuck in indelible historic issues and worse still struggling to win souls and minds of the masses on votes that it can expect a miracle out of this unprecedented level of violence it has launched. It will be a miracle if the drug addict Sibongile is not going to take the same concoction of her father GBV Chief.

    • Useless Police, why have they not arrested the PF cadres that were removing UPND posters in day light when campaigns started? How many HH billboards were destroyed before UPND retaliated?

    • I think this is the work of PF thugs playing a game. They are impersonating a peaceful party like UPND to dent the image of this great and peace loving party. Everybody in Lusaka knows who is violent and who carries Pangas everywhere killing and raping Innocent people. It is PF thugs and Bastards. Zambians need to stop Kambwili’s boys before it is too late.

    • DO WE REALLY HAVE A POLICE FORCE IN ZAMBIA? BAD THINGS JUST HAPPEN UNDER OUR POLICE FORCE’S NOSE. TO MAKE MATTERS WORSE, WHENEVER YOU SEE A POLICEMAN IN ZAMBIA IT IS EITHER HE/SHE IS BEGGING FOR MONEY FROM VICTIMS OR VERY DRUNK NAINYLAWILA NOKUISUNDILA MU UNIFORM. PHYSICALLY, THEY LOOK SO UNFIT I DON’T KNOW IF THEIR IS A DAILY PHYSICAL FITNESS TRAINING PROGRAMME FOR OUR POLICE FORCE. THEY PORTRAY A HOPELESS SECURITY SITUATION IN THE COUNTRY.

  1. Losers take desperate actions when he going get tough. UPND knows they are facing an uphill battle and therefore taking such actions. In the coming days you may see more of what really UPND is. This the type of leadership GBM has brought into UPND.

    PF keep on with the good campaigns and dununa them hard. The harder they come, the harder they fall.

  2. oh cry my beloved country is this what we are getting to very sad indeed those guys must be caged.
    i keep wondering why arrests are only made on one front there is something fishy as a straw down lusaka streets shows opposition posters defaced and police are only swift if the aggrieved is the party in power ECL as the head of state should put aside political affiliation and protect zambian citizens as per his sworn duty and not talk about his caders being provoked he is a very useless president

  3. This keeps recurring because the Police are weak on the implementation of the laws. Charge these people with attempted murder and keep them in remand. They must be used as an example. The vehicle should be forfeited yo the state as it was used in the commitment of a crime. This will be a message to all

  4. That is all a set up to frame UPND. that cut you see is self inflicted by his friends all in the vain of pointing the finger at the opposition. Those are all PF thugs in disguise.

  6. I WONDER POLICE IF THEY ARE THEIR ONLY TO FRUSTRATE UPND. PLEASE ARREST THE FIVE AND IMPRISON THEM. I KNOW THAT THE ARRESTED HAVE BEEN GIVEN MONEY BY THE PF TO PRETENT AS THOUGHTHEY ARE UPND CADRES. MAY I ASK THIS QUESTION PLEASE. MAY THE POLICE REVIEW TO THE PUBLIC THE OWNER OF THE VEHICLE FROM RTSA.
    I KNOW THAT IF THEY KEEP SILENT THEN THE GUYS ARE PF CADRES. WE KNOW THE PLANS OF PF BECAUSE ALL ARRESTS ARE UPND AND NO PF ARRESTS EVEN WHEN THEY ARE BEATINGS IN THE PRESENCE OF THE OFFICERS, PF CADRES ARE LEFT FREE.

    • This is as ridiculous as catching someone committing adultery with your wife right in your bed. But when the adulterer is confronted with the reality, he pleads innocence, claiming that he is only pretending to do it with your wife!

  8. President Edgar Lungu amassed astronomical worth in a short space of time. Yet UPND is branded a violent party by the bloggers on this forum. You fail to ask the right questions all the time. How many times have the UPND been attacked, and how many of them have been injured? What did the Police ever do about it? Yet UPND are termed bastards. We are such a disunited people in this country called Zambia.

    • Lord Confucious, I think you are pretending to be ignorant. It is on record and reported by press on a number of occasion where PF cadres have been arrested even imprisoned for committing offences you are alluding to. Let the Police do their work.

      A crime like this is stupid and indefensible regardless of the party committing it.

  9. I never thought Zambia could reach this stage. I condemn violence from any party. But Lungu is to blame for this kind of violence. His PF police are to blame for this violence. They arrest UPND cadres but they are soft on PF who have killed and injured many people and have removed many UPND posters. Hope this was not a work of PF injuring their fellow cadres since they have done this before to frame up the opposition. in any case, let the guilty be punished.

  11. How can you blame UPND, when they are merely retaliating. PF have been removing UPND billboards for a long time without any arrests. However, two wrongs don’t make a right

  13. This is so amateur. 1st you take a photo behind a pick up truck with a poster which is nicely parked in perhaps a car park. How I know is because the car parked next to the truck is nicely aligned to the vehicle next to it. Secondly, The guy with a machete positioned has head in a manner that doesn’t show his face. The other person only the legs were captured in the picture. Come on guys, you can do better than that. And LT. Don’t you have an editor? Show us the faces of the 5 criminals.
