Justice Chulu And The IG Must Resign Demands The UPND

The UPND says it is taken aback at the Zambia Police and Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) failure to control the political violence in Chilubi Constituency.

“We are shocked that the Zambia Police Service and the ECZ have continued to ignore these violent attacks on our officials and have continued to hope for free, fair and peaceful elections in a violent political atmosphere,” stated Stephen Katuka, the UPND Secretary General.

“Our ECZ is highly compromised and we wonder how they will manage the general elections in 2021 given the high level of complacency exhibited by ECZ and the inept chairmanship of Justice Essau Chulu,” he continued.

He bemoaned the many attacks on their campaign team which the Police and ECZ, he claimed, have opted to ignore. He reckoned that in an ideal situation, he expected the ECZ to act on the matter by punishing the perpetrators through disqualification.

“ECZ has failed to enforce the Electoral Process Act to disqualify the Patriotic Front (PF) for perpetrating violence in Chilubi. Consequently, we would like to demand that Justice Chulu steps aside with immediate effect. Under his Chairmanship, ECZ has lamentably failed to hold free, fair and credible elections. Similarly, Police Inspector General Kakoma Kanganja should retire as the task ahead is too big for him,” demanded Mr. Katuka.

However, the Patriotic Front, through its Media Director, Mr. Sunday Chanda has rubbished UPND claims stating that the party leadership has reduced itself to cry babies knowing too well that there is no way they can win the Chilubi by-election.

    It Seems upnd has no strategy of campaigning .politics is as same as football u have to plan for the game whenever u are facing your opponent.upnd has no game plan that is why they are complaining whenever the elections are held.Plan Guys For The Battle.See U In 2021.

    Ecz and police wil continue 2 run election and political leaders 2 respect ecz chairman and IG. U Can call them 2 resign but upnd 2 focus on campaign and mobilazation than fighting innocent pipo. A farmer in maize growing area meal mealie price is not reason remove pf when he has receive 8 bags fisp fertilizer. Upnd cry wil change 2021 pipo voting 4 pf again. If the two resign stil president lungu wil other and upnd wil praise them as clear pipo bcoz are out of govt jobs.

    Let all political parties must follow ECZ Directive 2 respect the campaigning timetable. Violence wil end if days are divide when 2 campaigning then playing victim yet u involved in mitete where u ejoy support. Western province upnd are abusing young lozi’s hoping if they win mongu wil b lusaka. Let him also address gasing in lusake other parts if what we seeing mwebantu is true that his is funding gasing. The firing of ECZ Chairman and IG wil not change anything but respecting electral laws wil help u

  17. l.ci

    Had HH taken the law into his, u could have said he is violent. Now that he has used the channel u say, he is a crying baby.you wanted him to keep quiet? Zambia is not for the pf but all Zambians. There4,the police should treat every Zambian equally. HH, if the pf continue
    doing this, sue them to the International Criminal Court.

  18. Truth

    Icc was created not b abuse it no lik upnd does but hh insult zambia justice system day and night 2 again political mileage if ruling is not in his favour. In 2016, upnd had no strong case that pf rigged but in 2014 in malawi tippex was and jocy banda own but again tippex was used pipo saw same mistakes. Chilubi results are pf heading 4 a win and NDC And UPND sensed defeat bcoz in upnd strong is same but upnd use violence policy 2 win western province and police as cadres 4 pf and if upnd win 2021,police wil turn 2 upnd cadres. Kikikiki pf accused police of bin MMD Cadres this political language by opposition parties 2 undermind police.

  19. Angoni
