The opposition FDD has condemned actions by police in Vubwi district Eastern Province where they blocked MMD leader from addressing party officials in the same district.

FDD spokesperson Antonio Mwanza says it saddening to note that the PF government has continued to use the police as tools of oppression against the opposition in the country.

Mr. Mwanza condemned the police for following orders blindly when they are suppose to be professional in the way they apply the law.

“As FDD we wish to strongly condemn the actions by police for stopping MMD president Dr. Nevers Mumba from conducting political meetings with his members in Eastern Province.

The PF has continued to use the police as tools of oppression against us the opposition while Wynter Kabimba is going round the country canvassing for vote the police are busy stop us from having meeting with our members,” Mr. Mwanza said.

Mr Mwanza adds it is for this reason that even as members of parliament continue to fight for the constitution when parliament resumes seating next month they should also apply the same pressure when demanding for the amendment of the public order act which continues to be used in a selective manner by the law enforcers.

And the opposition leader has encouraged fellow opposition members to remain strong and resist police brutality as the country does not belong to selected individuals.

Mr. Mwanza was commenting on the harassment of MMD leader Nevers Mumba by police in Easter Province yesterday.
