Two officers from Mongu Central Police Station on Tuesday stormed Catholic-owned oblate Radio Liseli, demanding for a recording which featured opposition UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema a day before the Kuomboka Ceremony.

An Assistant Superintendent only identified as Pupe and Deputy Inspector Muyoma visited the station with a search warrant.

“The two police officers came with a search warrant and demanded for the recording which featured HH a day before the Kuomboka ceremony. There was a police Assistant Superintendent Pupe and Muyoma, a deputy inspector,” the source narrated.

“They were given what they wanted and it seems they are looking for evidence with help in the treason charges that HH is facing in court.”

The sources said the two officers later held a closed-door meeting with Liseli assistant director Fr. Faustino Kalebwe, Human Resource officer Moses Mwamba and News Sub-Editor Derrick Chityamba.

“The police officers also recorded a statement from Chityamba who conducted the interview with HH, said the source.

I hope this this time around the police were civil in their conduct. And I similarly hope the radio station has a copy of the recording handed over to policy as it can easily be manipulated – edited.
