Police refuse to take HH to court, want to move him out of Livingstone

Police in Livingstone have refused to give UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema police bond or to take him to court.

According to Cornelius Mweetwa, the police have said they can’t take Hichilema to court in Livingstone but will have to take him to another town.

He said he was initially supposed to be taken to court at 11 hours where his lawyers were ready to ask for court bail but the police changed the plan.

Mweetwa complained that  this sudden change of plans by the police is meant to allow the police to keep Hichilema in jail.
