Police Cancel Hichilema Solidarity March in Choma

Southern Province Police Commissioner Bonny Kapeso has warned UPND members in the area against going ahead with the planned demonstration on Monday over the incarceration of their leader.

The UPND leadership in Southern Province have notified the police that they will hold a demonstration on Monday to press for the release of Hichilema who has been in detention since April 11 over a charge of treason.

Kapeso has however said that the police will not allow the demonstration to take place as it would amount to contempt of court.

He said that anybody who will dare defy the order will be dealt with forcefully.

“I wish to state that it will be contempt of court for anyone to demonstration over the incarceration of UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema,” he said.

The UPND have announced that the demonstration will go ahead with the officials set to deliver a petition to Southern Province Minister Edify Hamukale.

    Kapeso should not hide in the name of court procedures, if it was pf cadres demonstrating, he would have given a go ahead. What foolish decision to make in a democratic nation. This is purely an acceptable and cheating democracy.

    Ba Kapeso if you respect people they will also respect you, know if take them for granted they will also take you for granted, every one have a right to to express his/her freedom, us Zambians we are not foolish, the arrest of Hakainde Hichilema HH we all know how it started and people are calling for the release of HH because there is no matter which is showing that Hichilema committed a crime, and the police officers arrested him without an investigation, so we are pleased to you Kapeso don’t think that you will countineu to be in power everlasting.
    WE ARE ONE PEOPLE RELEASE HH!!!

    There are many treason trials that have been held in Zambia before. Which one one did people demonstrate or were allowed to demonstrate on, if there is any precedence?

    UPND does not mean well for this country.They want to cause chaos and confusion so that foreign powers will have an excuse of invading this country.We have now seen how ill gotten wealth can used to make the country ungovernable.HH should just come to terms with reality and swallow his inflated pride.
