Police, through anti-fraud and cyber crimes department, on Tuesday morning interrogated Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General, Raphael Nakacinda, over undisclosed information allegedly issued at one of the media briefings recently.
Nakacinda who appeared before the Police around 10 hours, however, refused to divulge any information relating to party activities until it was allowed to hold its Central Committee Meeting without disruption like it happened on Monday afternoon.
He spoke to Journalists at the Police Headquarters in Lusaka on Tuesday in the company of party Legal Counsel, Makebi Zulu.
“They were trying to extract information out of me that Information and the fact that they were indications of recordings, they wanted those recordings,” Nakacinda said.
He said he could not provide any information to the police because he had no access to such information but only after a Central Committee holds its meeting.
Nakacinda said he needed to seek clearance from the Central Committee before he could provide an information on any matter relating to party activities to the Police.
“It’s all related to the illegal activities of Miles Sampa and clearly this government is determined to continue aiding this criminal activities and enterprise of Sampa,” he said.
Nakacinda said the party would not allow itself to be intimidate through the use of law enforcement agencies such as the Police.
Meanwhile, Zulu said the summoning of Nakacinda arose from the confusion being created by Sampa.
Zulu said following the maneouvers to have Sampa’s faction registered at the Registrar of Societies, the party did communicate that it had information of attempts to interfere with the office of the Registrar.
He said this was the information which the Police needed but that they had been advised that it could only be provided after the Central Committee meeting.
“We also did indicate that for us to have a Central Committee meeting, we do not want disruption like it happened yesterday where they brought about the confusion after police were sent to the meeting place,” Zulu said.
