CLEAR ME, MUCHEMWA ASKS POLICE

By CHARLES MUSONDA

PATRIOTIC Front (PF) member and businessman Francis Muchemwa has demanded that the Zambia Police Service issue a public statement through its spokesperson to clear his name over various allegations of criminal offences levelled against him.

In a letter addressed to the Attorney General’s Chambers, his lawyer TutwaNgulube says Mr. Muchemwa has suffered a serious prejudice and risks being killed by mobs that may mistake him for a fugitive when in fact not.

Mr. Ngulube said Mr. Muchemwa is demanding for an official statement from the Zambia Police Spokesperson as to whether there is a murder investigation or he is a suspect as maliciously alleged by PF cadre Innocent Kalimashi or not.

He said during a by-election in Kaoma in 2019, Mr. Muchemwa was maliciously accused of having killed a person using a firearm when in fact not. 

Mr. Ngulube said after the allegation, his client presented himself to the Zambia Police at the headquarters where he was cleared of  involvement in any wrong doing. 

“Our client states that as a result of the several accusations by one Innocent Kalimashi, whom he later sued in the Lusaka High Court under case number 2020/HP/0632, our client is desirous to clear his name against such allegations,” reads the letter in part.
