Responding to numerous queries in the Zambi Police WhatsApp group, Police spokeswoman, Esther Katongo, said that Woodlands Police Station has not received any such report.
“We wish to state that Police at Woodlands have not received any report suggesting that the UPND Mayoral candidate Mr Kangwa Chileshe was attacked last night,” Katongo said.
She instead indicated that UPND Chairperson, for Elections, Sylvia Masebo reported a case of being trailed by suspected PF Cadres.
“The only report received by the station was from Ms Silvia Masebo who went to the station to report that they had spotted four Land cruisers moving around on Burma road near a house where the UPND were distributing their campaign materials and that they suspected the same people to be members of the Patriotic Front” stated Katongo.
She said that Police Officers rushed to the same area and did not find anyone at the said place.
“If the UPND Mayarol candidate was attacked, then may we be informed on where the matter was reported” demanded Katongo.
