KAIZER Zulu has denied beating Chitambo Constituency PF member of parliament Chanda Mutale saying he just picked the lawmaker and took him to the police for insulting President Edgar Lungu.
According to a story published by the Daily Nation yesterday, Zulu, a former special advisor for politics for President Edgar Lungu was at Chicagos on Saturday when Mutale started insulting the Head of State.
The paper reported that Mutale was charging that he had no reason to support Zulu because him and President Lungu had done nothing for him.
Kaizer stressed that Chicagos had CCTV cameras and that police could easily review the footage and establish what transpired.
“The place where l picked him up to take him to the police has CCTV. If the police reviewed the footage they will certainly know how distanced myself when became cantankerous and started insulting during the conversation we had,” Zulu explained.
He said on arrival at Central Police, officers took a statement from him and other witnesses.
“The exact words he used were ‘iwe na Chika… Lungu, what have you done for me? What have you done for me to continue supporting whatever agenda you want us to push?’
I responded and told him that you can insult me maybe because I am your friend but not the President. Please move away from me.
“He resisted to move that is how he was taken out and upon realising that what he had said was an offence, l took and laid a complaint against him,” explained Zulu.
But when contacted Mutale insisted that Zulu had assaulted him.
“He is not normal. He assaulted me very badly. He beat me twice for nothing. I got all the medicals and went to the hospital but I am now out of hospital. I reported the case to Central Police and the police are investigating the matter,” explained Mutale.
