National Democratic Congress Vice President Joseph has reiterated the party’s call for Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo to be arrested for his involvement in the murder of its Lusaka Province youth Chairperson Obed Kasongo.
Mr. Akafumba has urged the Police to exhibit professionalism in the manner they will handle Mr. Lusambo’s involvement in a murder case
He said the death of the NDC Lusaka province youth chairman was caused by the assault on him by Mr. Lusambo with a metal bar on April 11th 2019, last month and is regrettable.
Mr. Akafumba a seasoned lawyer and former Justice Permanent Secretary has given police 24 hours to arrest Mr. Lusambo.
He lamented that NDC has previously reported a number of PF cadres for violent behaviour but police have failed to arrest such characters.
However, Mr. Lusambo recently denied any involvement in Mr. Kasongo’s death and described the allegations levelled against him by NDC as malicious and baseless.
In a statement Mr. Lusambo said the malicious allegations issued by the NDC border on criminal defamation of his personal character and that of the public office he occupy.
He said the scheme to link him to the reported death of an NDC official is not only callous but cheap and a very unafrican manner of mourning a departed colleague.
