UPND Vice President for Administration Geoffrey Mwamba has charged that his summoning by Police in Kasama for merely buying fishing attests to how scared the ruling Patriotic Front is of him.
Mr. Mwamba says the PF who have been claiming that he is a political nonentity are now feeling his weight the reason why the Police are now following every move that he makes.
He has told Qfm News by telephone that he however does not mind because he is fully aware that the Police are merely being controlled by political forces in Lusaka.
Mr. Mwamba who on Tuesday was cleared of wrong doing by the Police after being suspected of holding public political meetings in Kasama, has however described the conduct of acting Northern Province Police Commissioner Lackson Sakala as unprofessional.
He says by suggesting that he went into hiding after being summoned to appear for questioning, Mr. Sakala might have used it as opportunity to earn confirmation as the Northern Province Police Commissioner.
Mr. Mwamba has wondered how possibly he can go into hiding when his House in Kasama is only about a kilometer away from where the Police confronted him.
He says as a former Defence Minister he understands perfectly well the implication of not turning up when one is summoned for questioning by the Police.
He explains that he opted not to go for questioning on Monday because he knew the Police were only up to harass him, his family and his supporters.
Mr Mwamba states that he has never gone into hiding nor has he been afraid of the Police, as history itself can confirm how he conducted himself during the struggle that led to the PF forming government.
