THE fact that only two persons were killed in suspicious circumstances without widespread gunshot injuries shows that this assasination may have been preplanned, Patriot for Economic Progress (PEP) president Sean Tembo has said.

Mr Tembo said the preciseness of the placement of both shots, the uniformity of the two shots as well as the fact that there are no other reported gunshot wounds among the people that were in the vicinity of the fracas, meaning that it was not a case of a random spray of gunfire

 “We say so because of the preciseness of the placement of both shots, the uniformity of the two shots as well as the fact that there are no other reported gunshot wounds among the people that were in the vicinity of the fracas, meaning that it was not a case of a random spray of gunfire,” he said.

And police have not received reports of anyone being treated for gun shot wounds following the fracas on Wednesday.

Police spokesperson, Esther Katongo said she did not have any such reports on her desk.

And Mr Tembo told the Daily Nation yesterday that if the shooting incident was done randomly there would have been more reports of people being affected.

The opposition leader said  this  points to the fact that the snipers were the ones who killed the two victims.

“As Patriots for Economic Progress, we are aware that some people, he said, were capable of various diabolical acts,” he said.

The opposition leader indicated that some individuals had a large appetite for painting Zambia as a country where the rule of law had broken down, especially in the eyes of the international community hence they can engage in evil acts.

Mr Tembo said “We are also aware that acts such as the shooting down of these two innocent citizens in such circumstances has the overall effect of enhancing some opposition leader’s fortunes through public sympathy.

“We are also aware that soliciting public sympathy has been a major stock-in-trade of some opposition political player’s journey,” Mr Tembo said.
