POLICE in Chinsali have summoned United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema and Sesheke UPND Member of Parliament Romeo Kang’ombe for questioning next week on Tuesday, October 21, 2020 at 09:00 hours.
According to the UPND, police officers from Force Headquarters in Lusaka attempted to serve the summons on Mr. Hichilema at the UPND Headquarters in Lusaka after 17.00 hours today but failed because there was no senior person to sign the summons.
The party says the summons did not state the reasons for summoning Mr. Hichilema. Yesterday, police in Mpika also summoned Mr. Kang’ombe to appear before them today.
When questioned over the development, police spokesperson Esther Katongo could neither confirm nor deny the summoning of the duo but said if they have been summoned, they have to appear.
“If he (HH) has been summoned, it will be known once he appears. If he is wanted by the police, then he has to appear. So wait until we reach the bridge if we are to cross it,” Ms. Katongo said.
