POLICE in Lusaka have arrested and detained 27 year old political activist Moses Mpomwa Mwenge Kampasa for demanding for the resignation of President Hakainde.
Police spokesperson Rae Hamoonga has confirmed the arrest of Kampasa whom they have detained for making a false document and proposing violence.
According to Hamoonga, Kampasa was detained for asking President Hichilema to resign.
“….at 1730hrs, Lusaka Central Police Station detained Mr. Moses Mpomwa Mwenge Kampasa, a 27-year-old resident of Chalala along Shantumbu Road, in connection with the offenses of Making a False Document and Proposing Violence, as stipulated under Section 344 and Section 91 of the Penal Code Act, Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia. Kampasa is alleged to have presented a document titled “Notification on the Protest by youths demanding President Hakainde Hichilema to step down on moral grounds.” The document was purportedly co-authored by Mr. Kampasa and Mr. Charles Kakula. However, investigations revealed that Mr. Charles Kakula is currently out of the country, indicating that the document was falsely attributed to him.”
Hamoonga said the alleged false document was submitted to the Lusaka Division Police Headquarters Command Registry on January 29, 2024, around 1700hrs.
