Sioma Independent Candidate Arrested for alleged malicious damage to property

Rural News Sioma Independent Candidate Arrested for alleged malicious damage to property

Police in Western Province have arrested and charged Sioma Independent Parliamentary candidate, Albert Mundia and his driver for alleged malicious damage to property.

This follows an alleged fight between his supporters and those for PF Parliamentary candidate, Mbololwa Sibulwa.

Police Spokesperson, Esther Katongo in a statement says the two suspects were also found in possession of a firearm with 14 rounds of ammunition.

But in an interview with this reporter, Mr. Mundia’s lawyer, Christopher Mundia, has described the arrest of his client as illegal and has urged the police to release him.

Ms. Subulya had earlier complained that she was living in fear after Mr. Mundia fired gunshots at her and went into hiding. He allegedly fired gunshots at her after accusing her of using Government vehicles to campaign and later went into hiding.

“After being shot at and the extensive damage on my car, my life is in danger for as long as my attackers are still on the loose,” Ms. Subulwa lamented.

Meanwhile, the Electoral Commission of Zambia-ECZ-has suspended Mr. Mundia’s campaign activities due to violence.

The Commission has also suspended UPND campaign activities in Ikelenge District of North Western Province following incidents of violence.

  1. When will this violence come to an end? The main cause of violence is when one party starts paying particular interest at the opponents’ campaign activities. We have few days before 12 August and let us campaign peacefully. It’s one Zambia, one Nation. As for the man who fired gun shots, let the law take its own course.

  2. ZP after 12 August can yo follow on this case of economic sabotage. Lusambo mentioned that when you come to the Copperbelt today, the railway line between Ndola and Luanshya has been stripped and I have been asking this question to Kambwili; who participated in the stripping off of the railway line between Ndola and Luanshya [but] he has failed to answer that question and I’m still asking that question – who participated in the stripping off of the railway line between Ndola and Luanshya?”
    Lusambo,one of the richest thieves in Zambia, asked.
