One PF cadre has been arrested while another is on the run, in connection with the theft of two Television sets that were stolen at the home of the Former Head of State Edgar Lungu.
On Saturday August 13, 2022, Police managed to trace one known Patriotic Front (PF) Party Cadre Angel Chipasha of Chipata Township who was linked to the theft.
Police raided his home but drew a blank because he had shifted during the day to unknown location.
Inspector General of Police Lemmy Kajoba said Police managed to trace him in Ten Miles where he had relocated and on Sunday August 14, 2022, officers raided his new place and successfully managed to arrest the suspect and in the process recovered one of the stolen Televisions.
Mr Kajoba said upon interrogations, he alleged that a colleague of his Emmanuel Bwalya, commonly known as Emma also a PF Cadre, had the other Television set.
He said the two suspects are known to have been frequenting the residence of the former Head of State.
“Police is aware that Emmanuel Bwalya is currently on the Copperbelt where he is suspected to have sold the other Television Set. We would like to appeal to members of the public who could have bought the Television or may have been approached to purchase the stolen Television to report to the nearest Police Station.
“Failure to do so may lead to the arrest and prosecution of any person who will be found in Possession of the Stolen Television,” he said.
Mr Kajoba said Police have since launched a manhunt for Emmanuel Bwalya so that he is brought to book and possibly recover the remaining Television.
He said investigations are on-going and more details will be availed to members of the public accordingly.
