Kambwili Arrested and Denied Bond
Police have arrested NDC consultant Chishimba Kambwili with ‘expression or showing hatred ridicule, or contempt for persons because of race, tribe or place of Origin or colour.’
This comes after footage emerged last week showing the Roan MP yelling at an Indian national who was working on a construction site.
Police had summoned Mr. Kambwili for questioning at Lusaka Central Police at 10:00 hours in connection with the alleged racial remarks he issued against a man of Indian Origin he found operating a compactor under the Lusaka decongestion project.
Mr. Kambwili arrived around 09:50 hours at Lusaka Central Police station and was accompanied by his wife, daughter, leaders of opposition alliance member political parties and lawyers among others.
Chief Government Spokesperson Dora Siliya recently said the Roan law maker faces up to two years jail sentence for uttering derogatory and racial remarks aimed at an Indian national seen in a video that has gone viral on social media.
Mr Kambwili is currently detained in police custody.
Mr Kambwili was flanked by his wife and Opposition Alliance partners led by Hakainde Hichilema and several supporters.
