UPND cadre’s arrest is legal and non-political- Southern Province Minister

General News UPND cadre's arrest is legal and non-political- Southern Province Minister

Southern Province Minister Edify Hamukale has urged UPND Choma Member of Parliament Cornelius Mweetwa not to politize the arrest of a UNPD Cadre Tom Silwiindi.

Mr. Hamukale says Mr. Silwiindi of Choma was not abducted as alleged by Mr. Mweetwa but arrested by Zambia Police on operation for a suspected offence.

He says the arrest is legal and non-political.

Dr. Hamukale says leaders should not agitate the citizens-through stage managed revolt especially in an election year like 2021.

And Deputy Chief Whip Tutwa Ngulube said Police should not shy away from applying the law on members of the opposition for fear of been accused of victimization.

In an interview with ZNBC News, Mr. Ngulube said Police should not look at tribe or political affiliation when dealing with suspects in criminal matters.

He is disappointed that the opposition UPND is allegedly blaming the police for picking up a suspects Mr. Silwindi.

  1. Well done police for arresting that thug. Southern province is part of Zambia and is not untouchable. We cannot have a situation whereby criminals are let free for the sake of political convenience for hh. Can it be with hard labour. I can come and beat him for you if you need backup manpower

  2. These are effects of being led by people who have suspended the constitution. Shamelessly justifying an illegal act. Life is temporal and state power is even more temporal. Look at one former minister what has befallen him. After campaigning for the regime.
    People can’t even learn from Yundu. This world has seen people who abused their powers beyond anyone’s imagination. Some are now history while others the world has even forgotten about them and is silent on them.

  11. It’s strange how arrests are effected on people who are not affiliated to the criminal party. PF caders have openly committed crimes but no abductions on them have been effected some of them in the likes of Kaiser have shot people, muchemwa shot a person, bull dozer caused death of obed others are purchasing planes with proceeds of crime but none of them has been abducted!!

    Such nonsense only happen in failed states!!

  12. Why didn’t ZPS issue him with a Call asking him to report to the nearest Police Station? Why did armed Policemen abduct him in the presence of his Family? Clearly Zambia is a Police State where Human Rights are violated daily and with impunity. Should ECL retain Power on August 12, 2021 Zambia will become a fully fledged pariah State where there is no respect 4 Constitutionalism, Rule of Law, Good Governance and Human Rights.Zambia will effectively become a One Man Party Dictatorship. ECL has said that “U voted me out in 2015 and 2016 but I am still here and I am not going anywhere. The message is very clear. ECL will rig the 2021 Elections by Hook or Crook. Already the Voters Roll has been rigged by inflating the number of Voters in PF strongholds and deflating the votes in UPND…

  13. The UPND when they commit a crime and get arrested they cry tribe and political. Keith Mukata murdered a human being but still cried tribe. If God forbid UPND was to form government the sacred cows will not be getting arrested.
