United Party for National Development President Hakainde Hichilema has called on the Patriotic Front to invite Scotland Yard to independently investigate the gassing that has led to instant justice mobs killing suspects.
Speaking when he addressed journalists at the Party Secretariat this morning President Hichilema said the gassing of citizens around the country bears all the hallmarks of State sponsored terror.
“We are willing to work with the PF on this one to solve this problem of gassing. However, this problem has all the footprints of the Black Mamba operation and the Zero Option plan that were sponsored by the State to implicate the opposition. We also wonder why the government is failing to arrest the situation and I have no doubt in my mind that the State is aware of what is happening that’s why we would like Scotland Yard to come and be sort on an arbiter. We feel this whole thing is targeted at us so that they can silence the opposition,” President Hichilema said.
President Hichilema said the Party will be making a formal request to the British High Commissioner to explore ways experts from the British Metropolitan Police Service can help solve the riddle.
He said statements coming from senior PF officials are worrying as they are trying to blame the opposition and bring in an ethnic dimension to the problem.
