PF Accuse UPND Of Violence In Monze

The ruling Patriotic Front has accused the opposition UPND of perpetrating violence in Monze ahead of a civic by-election set for April 24.

PF director of media Sunday Chanda says the violence in Monze has made it difficult for its candidate to campaign

BELOW IS THE STATEMENT

PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MR HICHILEMA, STOP THE UPND SPONSORED VIOLENCE IN SOUTHERN PROVINCE

Lusaka, Zambia, 15th April, 2018 – We are shocked at the violence perpetrated by UPND supporters against PF supporters in Monze District at a time when four of their Members of Parliament were in the area. We are appalled at Mr. Hakainde Hichilema’s continued silence after 48 hours since UPND members at the instigation of their Members of Parliament who were campaigning in the area savagely attacked PF members and accused them of growing the ruling party in the area while demanding that they leave Southern Province and return to their places of origin. As if that was not enough, the PF Candidate’s wife was among those badly beaten by UPND. Sadly, this reminds Zambians of the ethnic cleansing fellow citizens originating from other parts of the country experienced at the hands of the UPND in Namwala District after the 2016 elections – something Mr. Hichilema has not condemned to this day.

The scale of violence in Monze is scary and we are calling on the Electoral Commission of Zambia to assess the security situation in the area and consider postponing the Monze by-election indefinitely until public peace is assured. We do not see how the PF candidate whose wife was badly beaten can campaign in an environment where his immediate family continues to live under the naked threat of attack. Zambians must ask Mr. Hichilema whether his silence on such UPND perpetrated and sponsored violence helps the situation. He must be asked to imagine a Zambia were UPND members would be attacked in PF strongholds and if that is the Zambia he wants to contribute to.

And lastly, Mr. Hichilema, Zambians want you to halt the UPND sponsored violence in Southern Province against citizens belonging to other political parties, especially Patriotic Front. Further, Zambians expect Mr. Hichilema to come out clean on linkages to Cambridge Analytica considering the voter pattern that characterised the 2016 elections especially in Southern Province. More and more, Zambians expect Mr. Hichilema to feel for the poor retirees by telling the nation what he knows about Saturnia Trust saga and offshore accounts revealed by the Panama Papers. Zambians are also gravely concerned at the displacement of over 600 villagers in Namwala District whose customary land Mr. Hichilema bought off and leaving the locals without grazing land for their animals. We wonder if this was the reason Mr. Hichilema remained so opposed to the proposed Land Policy!

      Such statement can bring division in the country, this is the reason why HH fails election every time he contests! We don’t need politics of violence, division and brutality.people are killing each other and you so called HH responds you are defending your territory.

    we cant just campaign peacefully without pangaz sure . zambia is a haven of peace and that’s what we are known for but this kind of behavior where you want to shed innocent blood for the sake of winning an election should come to an end. ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION

Zambian Opposition leaders really dont have sences if only they immited the South African political sceen were opposition leaders talk rubbish but wen they go behind closed doors they are the same peaple helping out the ruling party why because they have brains to think critically the reason for others first then themselves letter.

    Dialogue is a share waste of time,,, this guys they’re like one another. PF sometimes Acts stupidly also the UPND Acts like fools , if the government can refrain from using abuse language also the UPND will refrain from copying what the PF is doing.

      Kikkkkkkkkkkk…………. No one has powers to claim GOD’S creation. Is he God or what ?all possesions belong to God. am a lozi by tribe and am not owned by any person. Am God’s created being. one Zambia one nation is our motto. Nothing like territories here, the country has got a territory and its guarded by the defense forces (ecl is the chief commander).

    It is sad that people were beaten and injured because they belong to the party of their choice, the leaders who are saying they are following sata’s example of doing politics are quite, there shall be no another sata, sata could have condemned the violence and handed the perpetrators of evil to police,ecz barn the election in that area, so that we can all learn a lesson, Zambian let us open our eyes, is this another Rwanda….
