Police detain 2 councillors over land

CHRISTINE CHIHAME, Kitwe
POLICE in Kitwe have detained two councillors for allegedly obtaining money by false pretences on pretext they had land for sale.
Copperbelt commissioner of police Charity Katanga said in an interview yesterday that police have detained John Chilupula, 41, and Evans Siame, 37, of Bupe and Ndeke wards, respectively.
“I can confirm that two councillors are in custody for allegedly obtaining money by false pretences. Mr Chilupula was arrested on Saturday while Mr Siame was arrested on Sunday,” Ms Katanga said.
She said Mr Chilupula is detained at Nkana East Police Station while Mr Siame is at Wusakile Police Station.
Ms Katanga said the two suspects have not yet been arrested officially because police are still recording statements from complainants.
