UPND Weighs On PF Demos To Oust Mutati

The opposition UPND has come to the defence of Finance Minister Felix Mutati saying PF cadres should not be allowed to demonstrate while the nation is under the Threatened State of Public Security.

UPND General Secretary Stephen Katuka noted the selective application of the Public Order Act as evidenced by demonstrations against Mutati.

Katuka states that PF demonstrations have continued to take centre stage at a time when the country was under the threatened State of Public Security where such activities are not allowed.

The UPND CEO wondered why the PF continue to abrogate the law with impunity while the law enforcers pay a blind eye to them.

“..But our interest is on the usual selective application of the Public Order Act in the country where PF members can easily get into the busy streets without a police “permit” and start demonstrating.

“Of interest equally is how these PF members are being allowed to demonstrate especially at a time when the country is under the State of Emergency where such activities are not allowed,” he said.

The opposition SG hopes Zambia Police will not stop other political parties from exercising their democratic rights including that of holding mobilization meetings.

“We therefore wish to commend the Zambia Police Service for this seemingly change of heart and professional conduct and hope that from now onwards, they will also allow the UPND members who wish to hold thanksgiving rallies on the release of their party leader Mr. Hichilema to do so according to the provisions of the Public Order Act.

“As a matter of fact, the UPND intends to hold several thanksgiving rallies across the country some that will be addressed by the UPND senior leadership that includes the UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and his Vice-President Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM).

“We believe that peaceful and lawful assemblies, demonstrations, meetings and rallies are part of the democratic tenets that must be allowed like the PF members have been doing against Finance Minister Felix Mutati of late,” he said.

Katuka is the latest to condemn the actions of the lawless behaviour of the PF cadres and the silence of the police service and party leadership.

    Let Felix Mutation himself respond to these domos. His the one at the centre of controversy. Keeping quiet won’t help matters let us know your position now because the aim of any political part is to form government. Is your aim to remain in alliance with PF or form government? Tell us.
