FDD Spokesperson Antonio Mwanza has lodged a complaint against Inspector General of Police for failure to arrest and charge Mr Davies Mwila for inciting PF cadres to take over the running of markets and bus stations in Kabwe.
Mr Mwanza reported Mr Mwila to the Police IG last week after a video of the PF General Secretary inciting cadres to take over markets, bus stations and share land went viral.
In the latter dated 31st January, 2017, Mr Mwanza said he has reported to the Police Public Complaints Authority because he finds the conduct of Mr Kakoma Kaganja, the Police IG, improper, unprofessional and bordering on complicity as well as abetting of crime.
He explained that the failure by the Police to act on his complaint is not only unprofessional but a serious violation of the laws of Zambia.
“Cap 87 of the laws of Zambia clearly states that anyone who incites civil disobedience against (herein being the Local Authority) is guilty of a criminal offence and is liable to imprisonment. Inciting lawlessness and promoting acts of subversion of the lawful authority is a serious criminal offence that should be should be punished,” reads the complaint latter in part.
Mr Mwanza bemoaned that the same police was quick to act and arrest UPND Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba who “threatened” the Republican President after he was reported by the PF deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya.
He said it shows that the police only act when it is the opposition which makes pronouncements against the law as Mr Mwila who is on video was clearly inciting his members to mutilate the Republican Constitution which the Republican President Edgar Lungu who is the leader of the PF swore to defend when he took his oath.
The FDD spokesperson pointed out that it was not the first time that the PF Secretary General has made a public blunder, late last year Mr Mwila described Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) President Linda Kasonde who heads an institution formed by an act of Parliament as a political enemy of the ruling Party.
Further Mr Mwila was entangled in controversy after he instructed independent MPs to stop using the name President because they did not belong to the PF which the President later reversed.
