Larry Mweetwa faces arrest

LARRY Mweetwa, a UPND zealot based in London, has been officially reported to the Zambia Police Service and the British government through the Zambian high comission in London for allegedly agitating and inciting civil unrest in Zambia.

Ephraim Shakafuswa, who is a Patriotic Front (PF) member, told the Daily Nation yesterday that he had decided to officially report Mr Mweetwa to police so that a red alert could be placed on him because his facebook posting had the potential to cause civil unrest in Zambia.

Mr Mweetwa, who is a former University of Glasgow pharmacology student, yesterday suggested that war may break out in Zambia if the Constitutional Court judges made what he termed “useless ruling”.

In his posting, Mr Mweetwa alerted Zambian citizens to be on the lookout for war and keep themselves (citizens) safe because, according to him, the military was ready to take over the country should the Constitutional Court throw out a petition by Hakainde Hichilema and  Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba to have the election of President Lungu nullified.

“Today will be a dangerous day if judges decide to rape our Constitution. How can someone say mention hearing and judgment of a case be passed within 24 hrs. Not even subordinate courts behave this way,” Mr Mweetwa posted on his facebook page.

But Mr Shakafuswa, a former UPND Lusaka Province youth coordinator who defected to the PF, told the Daily Nation yesterday that he has written to the Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja and was currently consulting on how he could also alert the British government through the diplomatic mission office on how best to deal with Mr Mweetwa.

“I have seen what Larry Mweetwa has posted on his facebook page today. It has the potential to put this country on fire,” he said.

Ms Shakafuswa said the more Mr Mweetwa continued posting alarming messages, the more it was becoming dangerous and he must be stopped and arrested.
