yesterday evening visited the mourning house of a Chawama female cadre who was allegedly shot dead following a spate of violence which resulted in bloodshed and her death on Friday.
Ms Mapenzi Chibula was shot dead in unclear circumstances as police attempted to stop a demonstration by UPND cadresfollowing the cancellation of the UPND Chawama rally by police for security reasons.
In the aftermath, police arrested 22 UPND cadres for alleged malicious damage to property.
Police have instituted an inquiry to establish the shooting, and an inquest to determine the cause of death.
Police have advised motorists that the Kafue and Chawama Roads were being watched for possible escalation of violence.
Police are reportedly closely monitoring the situation encouraging the UPND group to remain orderly and peaceful.
But Green Party leader Mr Peter Sinkamba has called for the total ban of elections in Lusaka and Namwala due to an escalation of in violence.
