The Alliance for Better Zambia (ABZ) has called for the immediate arrest of Patriotic Front Secretary General Wynter Kabimba for allegedly smuggling foreigners into Zambia prior to the 2011 general elections.
Reacting to Mr. Kabimba’s revelation that he smuggled Kenyan nationals into Zambia through Nakonde border to assist the Patriotic Front with Parallel Vote Tabulation (PVT) during the 2011 tripartite elections, Frank Bwalya says his party wants the Police and other law enforcement wings to demonstrate that no one is above the law by dealing with Mr. Kabimba the way the same way other opposition leaders are dealt with when they break the law.
Fr. Bwalya in a statement issued to QFM News says his party demands professionalism and impartiality on the part of the police in dealing with this matter as the revelations by Mr. Kabimba amount to a serious criminal offence over which he should be arrested immediately.
He says his party’s conclusion is that the people Mr. Kabimba smuggled into Zambia could have had criminal records or similar impediments to prevent them from entering Zambia.
Fr. Bwalya this is why his party is calling for a thorough investigation into this matter so that the public can know the truth.
And MMD National Treasurer Mwansa Mbulakulima his party will pursue to bitter end Mr. Kabimba’s revelation until justice prevails.
Mr Mbulakulima has told Qfm News that people in the country should also take keen in the matter as no one should be allowed to break the law with impunity as Mr. Kabimba allegedly did to smuggle foreigners into the country.
Mr. Mbulakulima, who is also MMD Chembe Member of Parliament, has observed that Mr. Kabimba’s revelations have also given some clue how his party lost the 2011 general elections to the ruling Patriotic Front.
But when contacted for a comment, Mr Kabimba in a brief reaction challenged those calling for his arrest to state which law he broke.
