PF CADRES today stormed and threatened to burn down Mafken Radio Station for hosting UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema.
But Copperbelt Police commissioner Charity Katanga says she does not have any information on the matter.
Sources at the radio station said the PF cadres had gone to the station wanting to torch it.
“UPND offices have been broken into. PF cadres are roaming around the Central Business District carrying machetes. They came to the radio station threatening to torch the radio station. The PF have also called the Independent Broadcasting Authority to come and close the station just because we hosted HH. And some of the cadres are using a car belonging to the area member of parliament (Evans Chibanda). The IBA are going to the station. It is rumored they want to close it,” said the sources.
But when contacted for confirmation, Katanga said she had not received any details yet.
Yesterday, some PF cadres sustained injuries after being beaten by some Mufulira residents, taxi drivers and UPND cadres for trying to disrupt a radio programme featuring HH.
More details later.
