PRESS STATEMENT FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.
PF THUGS STAY AWAY FROM NDOLA POLICE STATION ON TUESDAY, IF YOU WANT PEACE
We wish to warn the Patriotic Front Party here on the Copperbelt to stay away from Ndola Police station on Tuesday when our party President, Mr Hakainde Hichilema, will be appearing for questioning over what is known by many as flimsy grounds and alleged sale of ZAFFICO to the Chinese.
We are aware that the Patriotic Front Party has printed our party regalia to dress their thugs and cause chaos on that day and blame us for their own actions. This will not be allowed and we shall screen these known elements of violence if the Police will not do so.
At the same time, we would like to appeal to the Police to place the interest of the country first when interrogating our President because his fight for a better Zambia is meant to improve their conditions of service as opposed to a select few top corrupt PF leaders and some senior officers in the service.
Our party President, Mr Hakainde Hichilema, was robbed of the 2016 electoral victory with only 13, 000 votes and this means that half of this country believes in his vision for a better Zambia.
If anything, the Police and the Patriotic Front Party cadres must realise that Mr Hichilema is placing the interest of our country first by questioning the rampant corruption and sale of state assets by the PF to its associates.
The PF cadres must know that this time around it will not only be our party members to say no to their illegality but the country as whole.
The country is solidly behind our party President, and so you touch him, you touch the country.
At the same time our friendly advice to the PF Copperbelt Youth Chairman, Nathan Chanda is don’t allow your cadres to dress in our party regalia and cause havoc because this time around the country is ready for your malfeasance.
Like our party President says, for us in the UPND it is Zambia and Zambians first.
People power! Our power! Our land!
UPND Copperbelt province Youth Chairman.
