INCARCERATED NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili’s daughter, Chanda, has finally been released after spending two nights in police custody.
Confirming this in an interview, Thursday, police spokesperson Esther Katongo said the charge had been reduced from assault to conduct likely to cause breach of peace.
“She has been released. The charge was reduced from assault to conduct likely to cause a breach of peace. Officers just decided to charge her for conduct likely to cause a breach of peace. She has paid the admission of guilt fine and the matter has closed,” said Katongo.
On Tuesday, police in Lusaka picked Kambwili’s wife Carol and Chanda at the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court on allegations that the two misconducted themselves as officers were performing their duties.
The two women were manhandled before being bundled into a police vehicle and taken to Kabwata Police Station where they were detained.
Carol was charged with conduct likely to cause a breach of peace and released a day later after paying a fine but Chanda was slapped with a more serious offence of assault and police had said they would take her to court on Thursday.
