UPND Damage Control Tactic: William ‘Tekere’ Banda To Apologize Tomorrow Friday 8/24

OPPOSITION United Party for National Development [UPND] head of security and advisor to UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema, William ‘Tekere’ Banda is tomorrow Friday expected to hold a press briefing in Lusaka.

Mr Banda will among other things apologize to all media houses by ‘repenting’ from what is termed as his hooligan behavior journalists have suffered through his hand.

Tekere atteempts to strangle a journalist

The hooliganism in former MMD Lusaka Province chairperson, William Banda yesterday came to the fore when he pounced on a television cameraperson and attempted to strangle him.

Mr Banda, who had just been arrested on two counts of being in possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime, shocked everyone including police officers when he sprung like a tiger towards a group of journalists, grabbing a Muvi Television cameraperson Lloyd Kapusa by the neck, before being restrained.

Journalists found Mr Banda at Woodlands Police Station negotiating with a group of police officers who were about to lock him up but was incensed upon realising that photographers and camerapersons had been taking photographs all the while.

Mr Banda immediately abandoned his discussion with the police and in a flash was seen going for the Muvi Television camera but could not easily reach the gadget as Kapusa shielded it away from the rampaging Mr Banda.

Out of further rage, the former MMD member who has now joined the United Party for National Development (UPND) went for Kapusa’s throat in full view of the police and other on-lookers.

It took a good while before some police officers could unclench Mr Banda, who was clearly oblivious of the surroundings but just bent on inflicting punishment on Mr Kapusa.

The police managed to free Mr Kapusa and hauled Mr Banda, as if he was a common criminal, to the police cell.

His lawyer, Rabson Malipenga, had been arranging Mr Banda’s bond as these events were unfolding outside the police station.

Mr Banda was earlier questioned by the Government Joint Investigations Team at the former Task Force on Corruption offices before he was taken to Woodlands Police Station for formal arrest.

    Why did the other 3 police officers become spectators when someone’s throat was being choked to death? Please cage this so-called Tekere for life so we can move on. We are spending too much of our valuable time needed for productivity discussing useless people!!
