The Patriotic Front Stands With Chingola Residents – Chanda

The Patriotic Front says it stands with Chingola residents in calling for heightened security and bringing those behind a spate of killings to justice.

PF Media Director Sunday Chanda, in a statement issued to the media on Wednesday, appealed to all Zambians with information to cooperate with the Police so as to bring the perpetrators to justice.

“Patriotic Front (PF) wishes to convey its heartfelt condolences to the families of those murdered in suspected ritual killings on the Copperbelt Province. We stand with the residents in calling for heightened security and bringing those behind the spate of killings to justice. In calling on the Zambia Police to ensure that the suspected ritual killings on the Copperbelt Province are brought to a stop and perpetrators brought to justice, we are also appealing to all Zambians with information to cooperate with the Police. Further we wish to appeal to all Citizens that while the matter at hand is sensitive and emotional, we must all avoid the temptation of taking the law in their own hands,” Chanda said.

Meanwhile, Chanda has expressed concern over a “politically-charged video circulating where members of a known opposition party are chanting political slogans” while residents rioted.

“Society must not be left to think a named opposition party is either behind these spate of killings or taking advantage of the loss of lives to score cheap political gains. This is because matters of national security and public order must be kept away from cheap partisan politics,” Chanda lamented.

He has added that there are lives at stake and that “it is immoral for any political leader or party to incite members to politically exploit these suspected ritual killings”.

“And when citizens link certain political parties to dark forces, some politicians cry foul. We are calling on Zambians to condemn such immorality in politics,” Chanda said.

      While I support the police to increase its presence in the area, I detesit the insinuation by this stupid sunday chanda that opposition party may be linked to these murders. How stupid can one be? Indeed anyone contemplating voting for PF in its current form must be an idiot like sunday chanda

    It is all about hunger. Why loot if the issue is about ritual killings? Pf is a failed party that will make Zambia far worse if given another chance.
