UTM party says two of its witnesses in presidential elections case have been intimidated.
The party’s Publicity secretary Joseph Chidanti Malunga says a gang of thieves donning G4S security uniforms and with painted faces attacked home of Darlington Ndasauka and caused personal injuries to his wife and other family members on 4th January.
Chidanti Malunga says the thieves indicated that they were looking for Ndasauka who was away at the time, his laptops and money.
“They went away with a few items, promising to launch another attack until they find Ndasauka,” he adds
According to Chidanti Malunga on 25th December another key witness Miriam Gwalidi was visited by DPP party functionally who insulted and threatened to be dealt with her but was rescued by her neighbor.
Therefore, he has called upon police to investigate and prosecute those responsible for these acts without fear or favour.
DPP spokesperson Nicholus Dausi quashed UTM’s allegations saying “they just want sympathy from the public.”
In his remarks, national police spokesperson James Kadadzera said UTM has taken the right step by reporting the case to police.
He said they will investigate the matter.
