Political Violence: Who is the Villain and Victim?

Could this be a classic case of the villain playing victim to political violence and attacks? A Patriotic Front campaign vehicle found itself on the end of an attack after the political rally addressed by President Edgar Lungu on Monday afternoon in Chawama Constituency.

Some political parties have successfully coned the whole world of their innocence in perpetrating political violence. Could this not be an embodiment of what they truly are?


  1. kopala.

    we know this moooooooo party is more violent such that they even forget that we know them.they always play victim while they r in the forefront sponsoring violence. there so called leader r on record saying panga for panga,Armageddon, and many more violent inciting words.but they r always crying pretending as if they r the victims. nowonder their councillors r leaving them on a daily basis after knowing the type of people they hv as leaders.viva PF.nankwe nankwe. continue with violence,and see if violence will take u to state house.

        young boy!it’s not my fault that ur party is losing councilors. it’s just that people hv realized,what a worst of time to support this violent party,which has got nothing to offer but just full of dunderheads like u idiots who r empty.

    I think you guys have not done justice to this story. You should have told us the number plate of this vehicle. This vehicle had one of those nasty number plate “ECL 2021”. I strongly commend the guys who stoned this vehicle BECAUSE RTSA and police have failed to remove these vehicles with PF illegal number plates.

    When they c something lyk dat they feel happy. Chiwamina galu!

    Now u Chosen if the vehicle has ECL 2021 is to be stoned…i head RTSA saying these plates are leagal…even us we can put GBM 2021 only that HH has 2 letters otherwise we can also put..nothing wrong with that according to RTSA..don’t support the violence if it’s us UPND who stoned that vehicle we need to apologise to the PF for that condemn the act….!!!

    • The Chosen One

      @Ba Mwaata,
      RTSA said such a number plate is not there in the system. No one has patented it. Letters in a number plate can be from 1 up to a maximum of 3. Such letters are followed by number(s) from a single digit up to 4 digits. So, “HH 2021” or “H1” etc are perfectly legal. All you do is go to RTSA and pay K8000 and it will be given to anyone. But what we’re seeing is a convoy of vehicles all spotting ECL 2021 and driving on our roads with impunity and no regard for other motorists. Police can’t even arrest them. I repeat: The vehicle that was stoned had an ILLEGAL (non-existing) number plate. That number plate hasn’t been assigned to any car according to the confession made by RTSA.

    If that vehicle was indeed carrying an illegal number plate and police or Ratsa were failing to impound it then it is their own fault. But if it has a proper registration and was attacked then the attackers must be brought to justice.

    I support mr chosen let them go ahead and finish those vehicles.

  14. FuManchu

    Violence can not be always aligned with a party but can also be attributed to individuals who have their own reasons to engage violence and other anti social behaviour movements therefore the law enforcement wings must up their game to protect the citizenry!

  15. ndamwumfwa maisa
