According to a police document, UPND’s presidential spokesperson Anthony Bwalya and special assistant for special duties Mubita Nawa are wanted for theft and forgery.

Last year, Mr Bwalya and Mr Nawa appeared on television where they brandished NRCs and claimed that the same were being issued to underage persons by the Department of National Registration, Passport and Citizenship.

Meanwhile, Mr Bwalya has confirmed that his legal counsel was in touch with the police and a date has been agreed for him and Mr Nawa to present themselves to the police.  He said he and Mr Nawa were not fugitives and wondered why the police decided to sound as if they (Bwalya and Nawa) were on the run.
