PF and UPND supporters today clashed at the police station after a suspected UPND supporter was allegedly found with a voter register by some suspected PF cadres.

The cadres later apprehended him and took him to Sesheke Police Station, but when word went round that a UPND Cadre had been dragged to the Police, a group of UPND supporters went to the Police Station with a view of rescuing their colleague.

In the process a fierce fight ensued at the police station where the two camps, the PF and UPND clashed.

Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo confirmed this in a statement to The Independent Observer that the two camps clashed.

Ms Katongo said Police moved in to disperse the unruly cadres from both UPND and PF.

She said in the process, some PF cadres dashed to Sesheke Council Guest house where they were pursued by Police.

Ms Katongo said the Police command in Western Province has instituted investigations to establish what could have transpired at the Council Guest house between Police and the cadres.

She said the two suspected UPND cadres have been apprehended and detained for being in possession of offensive weapons (machetes) while six suspected PF cadres sustained injuries and are admitted to Sesheke District Hospital.
