Police in Lusaka have summoned the Edgar Lungu-led Patriotic Front (PF) Vice President, Given Lubinda, and Secretary-General, Raphael Nakacinda, for questioning.
The Police summon also include party Chairperson for Information and Publicity, Emmanuel Mwamba.
The trio who appeared for questioning at the Force Headquarters around 09:30hours on Tuesday morning, were turned away and advised to report themselves at the Ibex Police Station.
Addressing supporters before reporting themselves to Ibex Police, Lubinda said the PF members were now living between the courts of law and police stations.
He stated that the PF would not give up on the struggle for the sake of Zambia, and until the country is liberated from the current dictatorship tendencies.
“I have stated several times before that for as long as you belong to the opposition and you live in Zambia, you expect this kind of treatment,” Lubinda said.

Meanwhile, Nakacinda noted that the scheme to silence the opposition through Police brutality and harrassment had continued and that Zambians should brace themselves for tougher times ahead.
He said champions of democracy, and good governance had never been defeated by undemocratic tendencies which were now manifesting under the watch of President Hakainde Hichilema and his administration.
“It may look fashionable and romantic for Hakainde to continue using the Police to brutalize the opposition but the end result is that the Zambians are watching and will decide at the end of his term,” Nakacinda lamented.
