UNPD cadres in Mr. Hichilema’s convoy attacked and abducted Police Officers-Kampyongo

Headlines UNPD cadres in Mr. Hichilema’s convoy attacked and abducted Police Officers-Kampyongo

Minister of Home Affairs Hon. Stephen Kampyongo says the Zambia Police will conduct a thorough and speedy investigation into the matter where suspected UNPD cadres in the company of their party leader Hakainde Hichilema allegedly attacked and abducted two police officers who were deployed to provide safe passage of the UPND and its leader from Muchinga Province.

He said on Wednesday, 14th October 2020 in Lavushimanda district of Muchinga province Mr. Hichilema’s convoy whilst traveling from Kasama to Lusaka on the Great North Road, stopped and attacked innocent people with matchets, pan bricks, hammers, axe handles, and other lethal weapons.

“Two police officers who were deployed to facilitate the smooth passage of the opposition leader were attacked, abducted and disarmed of an AK 47 riffle with six rounds of ammunition and four (4) teargas canisters.

The two police officers were beaten terribly using a hammer, an axe, machetes and fists after being abducted and bundled into a white Toyota Hilux double cab. The occupants of the motor vehicle in which officers were bundled included UPND Member of Parliament for Sesheke constituency Hon. Romeo Kangombe.” He said

Speaking when he addressed the media in Lusaka today, Hon. Kampyongo said the government will not tolerate any form of violence any longer and whoever is found perpetuating violence will be dealt with.

“I wish to reiterate the sentiments of Her Honour the Vice President of the Republic of Zambia Mrs. Inonge Mutukwa Wina in parliament yesterday; that the police should conduct a thorough investigation in this matter, and ensure that all culprits who participated in attacking innocent citizens are brought to book. The government shall not entertain any form of violence any longer and whoever shall be found perpetrating political violence shall be dealt with according to the law” he reiterated.

And the Minister disclosed that the government has unearthed a scheme where a known political grouping is planning to blow up the government procured anti-riot motor vehicles for the Police Service using explosives.

“The source for the explosives is already established and the culprits are also known. This anti-riot equipment has been procured at a high cost and it is irresponsible and criminal for any individual or organization to begin scheming to destroy the equipment” Hon Kampyongo said.
He said the government will continue to invest in the security of the country to ensure that all citizens are safe at all times.

  1. Ummm! Police provided safe passage on a public road? Since when? Ba Kampyongo ?. Was HH told about this unusual Presidential security detail? PF providing security to HH unsolicited and without his knowledge is like a kiss from Judas.

  5. Tasting own medicine now. We told you to tame the police now others have decided to tame them for you. Clearly you have failed sir. Just resign why should civilians tame the police. We saw it coming. By the way since when did you provide HH free passage apart from stoning him? Just start packing time is up bwana.
    Disaster!!!!

  6. We are tired of created lies aimed at tainting HH to be bad. When your caders are clobbered you cry like babies but when the PF caders have an upper hand in the violence you do nothing. Going forward it will be NO RETREAT NO SURRENDER now.

  7. This is what we mean when we say stop calling criminal suspects by their party affiliations. If the so called MP was in the vehicle that the thugs used to abduct police officers had a member of parliament in it then he is a suspect and must be asked to help the pice with the investigations. Say that the suspected criminal elements who were in HH’s entourage.

  12. Iwe Kampyongo, now that you’re on board, who gassed n killed 50 innocent Zambians? We want answers so we can move forward.

  13. Back to square one!
    DISGRACED State House Aide Kaizer Zulu his counterpart Amos Chanda, Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo and Minister in-charge of National Development Planning Lucky Mulusa on Tuesday night celebrated the arrest of UPND President Hakainde Hichilema in style at a pub on 8 Reedbuck road in Kabulonga.
    The four senior PF officials took turns boasting how they had made sure they had fixed the opposition leader and how they were controlling state institution.
    The officials who were in the company of another mercenary, Lewis Mosho and some former Post Journalist and what looked like prostitutes, drunk the night out and only left 8 reedbuck after midnight.
    “Natuka chita ka cikala…kalemona kwati ni ka President nako. In fact Ba (kakoma) Kankanja is very weak if I didn’t…

  14. — URGENT —-
    Name and shame all those PF cadres, send evidence, petition; Commonwealth Secretary-General Baroness Patricia Scotland , the UN, EU, AU and the ICC over what has become of Zambia.

  15. Given such a highmedia platform just to tell an endless and usual chain of lies…Shame on you misfit. Who are you trying to impress

  16. But ba VP sure! at her age she continues to dance to the tune of falsehoods! It is tragic that in PF, politicians never grow up. Bo Inonge sure talking things that are a figment of wild imagination! I get disgusted. No dignity at all.

  17. You PF attack , injure and kill innocent people then you put police in civilian clothes mixed with stone , knives carrying Pf cadres and expected the UPND to feel safe and guess that those police men in civilian clothes were police meant to provide security to UPND. What are you doing tearing this country to pieces bit by bit and preparing to put it on flames. Just for your inner circle benefit ? 500 of you against 17 million people.

  18. Honorable Kapyongo, government needs to make an example of someone on this case. Disarming and abducting a policeman on duty is an act of war. The government doesn’t have to wait for the suspects to travel to Mpika; break into his house by force and carry him like a pig to Mpika. On this one case Honourable Kapyongo, show yourself a real man.

  19. You people do not under estimate bo Inonge she is the most influential witch of this mob PF impersonating thieves all of them coming from mmd.Bo inonge held dark corner meetings with RB soon after the the demise of late president SATA and they agreed that he RB help her planing on how to hijack others when they go for a convention since she was the party’s president and had the powers to endorse who should succeed the late SATA.She is very very venomous influential atom of these autocrats so be careful with that witch.

  20. What just surprises me is the level of rumour mongering that Zambians tolerate. Everything is a rumour including such serious issues. We are always investigating this or that. Calling this one or that one. We are seriously backward. Even convoy data cant be easily traced.

  21. The summoning of HH has a lot of political benefits. If
    UPND manages to get the 1000+ cars on Great North road, it will give HH 101% positive publist. HH go for it. GRZ will also take in in excess of K160,000 in toll fees. If each one of them was to spend a K50.00, over K250,000 will be injected into the economy. Villagers along the road will have drawn benefits. Don’t Go give up.

  22. Dear Mr. President,why do you dear to fire your incompetent ministers, your corrupt ministers, you always defend your people who are the skirmmers of violence…Anyways God is watching you and you know yourself well so does Jehovah God. Stay blessed

  23. The 48 houses were a campaign tool for upnd against of., now that the very houses they made noise about are linked to their SNR member, they are mute. If you listen to thier campaign, they no longer talk about the 48 houses. They will get a shock of their lives when they will discover that the person behind gassing is infact upnd cader. Bola ni 90 minutes.

  24. Kaizer, Kateka takapite please step in as promoted by that Mwansa chap. You are two grades above him in cadre mentality and certainly one above Kampyongo.

  25. “stopped and attacked innocent people with matchets, pan bricks, hammers, axe handles, and other lethal weapons.” This sounds more of a propaganda. You guys are really taking Zambians for granted. Play politics on plain ground and not this propaganda theory.
