“The incident happened immediately after leaving the radio station, a gunshot was heard followed by countless stones which were thrown at a vehicle carrying Mr Lubinda from suspected UPND cadres who were hiding in grass thatched fences leaving the windows shuttered,” he said.
Mr Nakacinda has wondered why the police have failed to perpetrators who allegedly seen driving UPND vehicles.

Mr Kawana said the fighting taking place in Kaumbwe constituency is only among opposition political parties.
