FORMER Minister of Defence Geoffrey Mwamba is today scheduled to avail himself before law enforcement officers at Matero Police station to answer allegations of assault.
Mr Mwamba, who is Kasama member of Parliament (MP), is accused of assaulting one of his employees and is scheduled to appear at the police station at 11:30 hours.
Police deputy spokesperson Rae Hamoonga said in an interview in Lusaka yesterday that police will be “waiting” for Mr Mwamba and his lawyers at the scheduled time.
Asked what course of action will be meted if Mr Mwamba, fondly known as GBM, does not show up, Mr Hamoonga said that will be determined at the right time.
“As police, we do not speculate. So we will only tell you the action we will take after that happens,” Mr Hamoonga said.
One of Mr Mwamba’s lawyers, Sakwiba Sikota also confirmed in a separate interview that his client will appear before police today.
On Saturday, police searched Mr Mwamba’s Kabulonga home after he allegedly failed to report to Matero Police Station.
Police conducted a thorough search at his residence in the presence of his lawyers Makebi Zulu and Mr Sikota but did not find him.
Mr Mwamba, is accused of assaulting one of his accountants, Collins Mudayi, at Arizona Marketing and Distributors.
