PF DITCHES OWN MILITIA, CALLS FOR FAKE ARRESTS.
PF have been rattled by the video circulating on social media, of known party thugs that they imported from Lusaka to Roan to kill NDC consultant Chishimba Kambwili.
Sunday Chanda the PF Media Director has denied the existence of the militia who were using vehicles believed to be belonging to Home Affairs Minister Steven Kampyongo.
Meanwhile, some people have recognised some of the thugs as having been in the group that hacked and robbed mourners in Leopards Hills Memorial park two years ago. The matter was reported to Woodlands Police Station but the police failed to arrest the PF militia even though they were known to them.
Below is the PF statement:
Lusaka, 15th April 2019 – Patriotic Front Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila has distanced the ruling Party from a video circulating where people unknown to the Party are heard threatening the life of former Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili and issuing unprintables against his mother.
Hon Mwila says the Party finds the video to be highly offensive to its values and that the content thereof borders on nothing else but criminality.
On that score, the Party Secretary General is calling on the Zambia Police to immediately investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book.
The Secretary General has further reminded the Party members at large that President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has constantly called for non-violence in the Party and no such criminality would be tolerated.
PF believes that while we may hold differences with our opponents, they do not become our sworn enemies to the point of shedding blood or wishing for one’s cessation of life.
