CYSLA Seeks Permanent Solution to PF/UPND Violence

Centre for Young Leaders in Africa (CYLA) Communications Director Gerald Chiluba says his organisation has taken advantage of the peace accord signed by the ruling Patriotic Front (PF) and the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) to come up with a road map on how to completely eradicate political violence in the country.

And Lusaka Province UPND Youth Spokesperson Otis Bwalya has pledged his party’s commitment to the peace accord which he described as a step in the right direction.

Meanwhile Edward Siwale of the PF observed that youths were being used as tools of violence by political parties because they did not know their role.

Speaking when the trio featured on Hot FM’s Talk on Monday radio program Chiluba known for being leader of the reneged Youth wing of the former ruling party-MMD Diehards said his organisation is sceptical that the accord will produce the desired results as it is seemingly a repeat of the same things done in the past hence their interest to design a road map to ensure that the scourge is eradicated for good.

    Poverty is a danger to our democracy. The poor youths are easily engaging into political violence for petty monetary rewards. The ruling party should invest in poverty reduction, alotte financial and human resources in curbing political violence. ” My tribe is Zambian, One Zambia, One Nation, ” and other rhetoric Statements have so far FAILED. Pragmatic action is the answer.
