INSPECTOR General of Police Kakoma Kanganja has warned opposition UPND cadres who stormed a registration centre in Chitamba village in Lukashya constituency.

Kanganja said the said cadres destroyed some machinery which were being used during the on -going mobile National Registration card (NRC) exercise and stole equipment, and also beat up officers whom they found at the centre.

“I wish to sound a strong and timely warning to the suspected United Party for National Development (UPND) Cadres who stormed a registration centre in Chitamba village in Lukashya of Northern Province on 13th September, 2020 and destroyed some machinery being used during the on -going mobile National Registration card (NRC) exercise, stealing some equipment as well as beating up officers they found at the centre,” Kanganja said in a statement.

He condemned the action taken by the cadres saying that everyone was aware that the mobile registration exercise is not a hidden process.

The I. G said if there are any suspicions or concerns around the NRC registration procesa, police are open and ready to receive complaints from anyone concerned regarding the exercise.

“In addition, this process has no bearing on the by-elections currently taking place in Lukanshya and Mwansabombwe Constituencies but it is being done in preparation for the 2021 general elections. It is therefore disheartening to note that Political Parties that pledged to maintain peace during and after the by elections are the ones in the forefront perpetuating violence,” said the I. G.

He warned that the police will follow the matter to the latter and will take punitive action against all those found wanting.
