Katanga threatens to lock up Chieftainess LesaBy Daniel Chansa on 13 Sep 2018
Copperbelt Police Commissioner Charity Katanga has warned that Chietainess Lesa of the Lamba speaking people in Mpongwe will be arrested for inciting violence.
Katanga said Chietainess Lesa should stop using her “criminal ways of doing things” to create anarchy in Mpongwe.
The threat follows a land dispute between Chieftainess Lesa and Chief Mwinuma where it has emerged that the Chieftainess allegedly instructed her subjects to go and set ablaze a house belonging to the rival chief.
And Katanga revealed that a headman from Chietainess Lesa is in police custody, charged with arson.
Addressing journalists in her office, Katanga said the law would not be used selectively regardless of who was involved.
“Chietainess Lesa will be warned against threatening violence which is creating anarchy in the area. She has elected to use the criminal way of doing things. The chief is no exception and she will get the wrath of the police, me and the law,” Katanga warned.
She also identified the arrested headman as John Chala, 78, of Mwanga village in Chieftainess Lesa’s chiefdom.
“John Chala, 78, a headman of Mwanga village in Chieftainess Lesa’s chiefdom on September 9, 2018 in the company of other unknown persons did allegedly acting on instructions from Chieftainess Lesa burnt to ashes a house and other property in a bid to halt a meeting which was scheduled to be addressed by chief Mwinuna,” said Katanga.
Katanga said the police have also identified the vehicle which was used by the assailant in executing the crime.
She said Chala would not be released until he appeared in court.Related Items
