Suspected United Party for National Developed (UPND) are alleged to have attacked some Patriotic Front cadres in the area.
The cadre whose identity is yet to be revealed is currently admitted at Mukinge Hospital where he is nursing wounds after an attack from suspected UPND cadres.
And North Western Province Patriotic Front Chairman Jackson Kungo has condemned the violent acts in Kanongo ward of Kasempa District.
Kungo has accused the UPND of pressing the panic button after realising that the ruling party has made inroads in the opposition stronghold territory.
He said it was shameful that the opposition political party leadership is panicking and is allegedly asking Party President Hakainde Hichilema to help in drumming up support for its candidate in the local government by election slated for 24th April, 2018.
“The violence we are witnessing is very unfortunate and we condemn these acts in the strongest terms. It is however clear that people of North Western Province have lost interest and confidence in the opposition UPND as evidenced by the mass resignations of their councillors,” Kungo said.
He said the Patriotic Front is ready to scoop all the four (4) by elections slated for the April 24 in North Western Province.
Kungo further urged the opposition to own up and conduct violence free campaign adding that the Patriotic Front will not resort to violence at any time.
