Patriotic Front party vice president Hon. Given Lubinda says it is totally unexpected and unacceptable for President Hakainde Hichilema to call for an eye for an eye.
Addressing the media at the PF secretariat in Lusaka, Hon. Lubinda said it is disturbing that President Hichilema openly encouraged UPND thugs to continue hacking and harrasing innocent Zambians and PF members.
The PF vice president said it is unacceptable for the Head of State to ask his cadres to go and seek for revenge on PF members.
” President Hichilema should not reduce himself to be a partisan President. The remarks that attacks on PF are expected human nature makes sad reading. The extremely unguarded statement made by the highest office of the land must be condemned in its entirety,” Hon. Lubinda said.
” PF cadres are being attacked ruthlessly, tortured at the the hands of UPND cadres and our complaints to the Police, Human Rights Commission and the International community are being met with defeating silence,” He said.
Hon. Lubinda reminded President Hichilema that he was elected by Zambians and he is a President for all including criminals.
” On the hand President Hichilema is saying there is need for rule of law and on the other hand he is calling for a law of the jungle. I want to remind President Hichilema that he is a President for all including criminals and not only for the holy ones. He swore to defend the constitution of the country.
And Hon. Lubinda said the PF is not weak and its meekness should not be taken for granted.
He said the PF will forever not manage to tame its cadres.
” We are not weak and our being meek should not be taken for granted. We dont want to act the same way the UPND behaved while in opposition where they encouraged their members to defend themselves, because we will be adding fuel and recipe for anarchy,” Hon. Lubinda said.
” President Hichilema must not encourage Zambians to ignore the provision of the justice system. He must be reminded that if people committed atrocities against each other, there are procedures to follow and an eye for an eye is not one of them,” Hon. Lubinda said.
