UPND, PF Cadres Clash at Sesheke Police

UPND and PF cadres clashed at Sesheke Police Station this morning when a suspected supporter of the opposition party was allegedly found with a voters’ register by ruling party members.

Police spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo has stated that the confrontation took place around 07:30 hours when a UPND supporter was dragged to the police station by PF cadres for allegedly being in possession of a voters’ register.

Police dispersed the cadres to quell the confusion.

At this point, PF cadres ran to Sesheke Council Guest House but police pursued them.

In their pursuit, police broke doors to the Guest House rooms where the PF cadres were, but it is not known whether any arrests were made.

“At about 07:30 hours today 12th February, 2019, there was a confrontation between supporters of the Patriotic Front and UPND in Sesheke. This was after a suspected UPND supporter was allegedly found with a voter register by some suspected PF cadres who later apprehended him and took him to Sesheke Police Station.

When word went around that a UPND cadre had been dragged to the Police, a group of UPND supporters went to the Police Station with a view of rescuing their colleague who had been dragged to Police and that was when the two camps, the PF and UPND, clashed right at the Police Station and confusion ensued,” Katongo stated. “Police moved in to disperse the unruly cadres from both UPND and PF and in the process, some PF cadres dashed to Sesheke Council Guest house where they were pursued by Police. Police command in Western Province has instituted investigations to establish what could have transpired at the Council Guest house between Police and the cadres. Two suspected UPND cadres have been apprehended and detained for being in possession of offensive weapons (machetes) while six suspected PF cadres sustained injuries and are admitted to Sesheke District Hospital.”

    Why not leave the foolish carders to fight so they teach each other some lessons meanwhile their bosses relaxed drinking all sorts of alcohol and non alcoholic drinks depending on the devil on likes

    I had an impression that any party can buy the voter’s registration book from ECZ, as for UPNDcadres having machetes, it is a sad development. He who kills by the sword shall perish by the sword

    These are foolish and destitute people fighting for two rich selfish individuals. Me I cannot be convinced to fight for ECL or HH, unless these two brings their relatives and children forward to participate. HH and ECL are sitted in the comfort of their riches while foolish poor people are fighting for what will not benefit them. Idiots. Your power is a vote and only you knows whom you’re going to vote. Why risking your precious life while HH is facebooking and drinking Fanta 300KM away from the confusion while his counterpart ECL is sipping in a nice hard drunk at state house. Wake up you Africans.

    What’s with all this confusion in sesheke?I strongly believe that the leaders of both the ruling and opposition parties are to blame for all the confusion,a true leader will definitely advice his party members (supporters)not to engage in any form of violence. Yes it is a well known fact that politics is a dirty game but that doesn’t necessarily mean that these supporters should kill themselves all in the name of supporting a political party. Why fight when you gain nothing but misery,think wise before you get yourself in bigger problems that you can never afford.

      Ba lombe. Sit up! There is no thing as they’re both wrong. Be genuine. Between two warring parties there’s always one who I responsible for having caused the fracas. You’re better off shutting up than providing a mediocre counsel

    They are both useless, their thinking capacity is very low, even if you injure yourself or someone else, will you be praised by your office? If you are jailed, will you be supported by your office? Especially the UPND, most of them are rotting in the jail, no one to rescue them .

      King cool just swallow your foolish pride. Your traditional victims have fought back and you’re feeling the pain. Like little lions they have tested blood. Next time they will follow you to you bedroom. You should have learnt that no condition is permanent. Bakucitani

    It’s pointless to fight one another. personally I don’t support either side because what they’re doing is totally nonsensical. This country needs both groups to develop not fighting each other. The need for sensitization is so high. what both camps forget is that we are all Zambians. fighting won’t take us anywhere. The devils are those leaders from both camps who instigate violence. am not supporting anyone because they are both wrong. Please my fellow country men let’s fight using the ballot.

    In this world,there are two types of pipo,”Drivers and Passangers”.In this world,there pipo who introduce themselves to life and the others whose introduction is given by life itself.Its a matter of finding out who you are and think about others.Pipo like Mandela,Nyerere,Nkhruma to mention but a few when one time youths and this is the time they found out who they were and thought about others so they became great sons of mother Africa.
