UPND are mobilizing following the summoning of party leader Hakainde Hichilema by Chinsali police as they want a thousand vehicle convoy to escort their party leader.

The minister said government will not entertain any form of violence regardless of who perpetrates it.
He further warned the UPND against moving with a thousand vehicle convoy.
And Kampyongo disclosed that Sesheke UPND MP Romeo Kang’ombe was on the vehicle where two abducted police officers and five civil servants of Muchinga Province were bundled and later assaulted.
He also said some political parties have been going to East Africa to seek funding adding that their funders were encouraging them to engage in lawlessness.
My Kampyongo further revealed plans by the opposition to deliberately cause violence ahead of 2021.
