UNITED Party for National Development (UPND) cadres have blocked law enforcement officers from accessing the business premises of lawyer Martha Mushipe.
A check at Ms Mushipe’s offices within Mulungushi Village Complex in Lusaka around 17:00 hours yesterday found scores of both police and UPND cadres keeping vigil on the premises.
By press time, police were waiting for reinforcements and further instructions from the high command.
“There is a stand-off here between us and the police since yesterday [Monday]. We will not allow the police to get into Ms Mushipe’s prem-ises,” said a UPND cadre found at the office premises who identified himself only as Kebby.
Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja said that on Monday night, police met resistance.
