Opposition United Party For National Development Vice President For Administration Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba Has Demanded for The dismissal Of Home Affairs Minister Steven Kampyongo and Inspector General Of Police Kakoma Kanganja.

Mr. Mwamba has accused the duo for failing to provide enough security detail to President Edgar Lungu while in Western province for the Kuomboka Ceremony.


He said that it is unreasonable for Security Agencies to blame the UPND Convoy of failing to give way to the Presidential Motorcade.

Meanwhile the Former Defence Minister has claimed that police intend to arrest him once President Lungu returns from Muchinga Province.

But The Zambia Police Spokeswoman Esther Katongo has denied having such motives stating that arrests are not done by the Head of State.

Meanwhile the United States government is concerned with the political situation in Zambia especially with the arrest of United Party for National Development Leader Hakainde Hichilema on Monday night.

This is according to a statement issued to 5FM RADIO by the American Embassy Public Relations Office in Lusaka this afternoon.

The statement says recent events underscore the need for peaceful dialogue between the opposition and ruling party on matters of national concern. 

It has further urged all actors to exercise restraint in addressing differences.

By broadcast time Chief Government Spokeswoman Kampamba Mulenga was unavailable to comment on the concerns raised by the United States Embassy in Zambia.
