HH condemns PF attacks on NDC supportersBy Zondiwe Mbewe on 25 Jan 2018
UPND president Hakahinde Hichilema says all well-meaning Zambians should condemn the ruling Patriotic Front for the uncivilised politics that they continue to practice.
And Hichilema has urged the Police not to fall prey to abuse by greedy politicians who want to settle personal political scores.
In a statement Tuesday, Hichilema condemned the attacks by suspected PF cadres on NDC members at Levy Junction shopping mall on Tuesday.
He urged the general public to condemn the ruling party for the uncivilised politics that they practiced.
“We would like to condemn in the strongest terms the violent attacks by known Patriotic Front cadres on the members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Lusaka this morning (Tuesday). Our country has already experienced enough bloodshed and we cannot continue witnessing such behaviour in full view of the police. Violence must not have room in our country’s governance and as such all well-meaning Zambians must condemn the PF for these uncivilised politics that they continue to practice,” he said
Hichilema observed that the country needed issue-based politics and not intimidation by those who claimed to be in charge of the nation.
“We sympathise with the NDC members who were hacked this morning and we would like to encourage the Roan Member of Parliament, Honourable Dr Chishimba Kambwili to remain strong even amidst such inhuman treatment. We call on the country to join hands and end politics of violence and this must be done by telling PF leaders to stop violence with immediate effect. This violence is coming from the top PF office, this is why there is impunity which has never been seen before. Our country needs issue-based politics and not intimidation by those who claim to be in charge of our nation. This country has no one in control, people are surviving by the grace of God. If there was someone in charge, people would not be killed and maimed in broad daylight by fellow citizens,” he said.
“If there was ever a time for the police to rise above partisan politics, it is now. The Police, must not fall prey to abuse by greedy politicians who want to settle personal political scores. We have, for a long time now been stating that the PF has no plan for our country other than violence, corruption and dictatorship and now we are being vindicated. This is the police that will charge a victim and not the perpetrators of these heinous crimes. This has happened to NDC members,” he said.
Hichilema said PF leaders kept dragging the country backwards.
“This is our pledge as UPND. We will run a government based on the true tenets of democracy. This means that violence will have no place in our country. When people have no idea what to do, they create confusion in order to be seen to be doing something about it. This is the oldest trick in the politics manual.The country needs healing but typical of the PF leaders, they keep dragging our country backwards, this must be stopped forthwith. We should move on to civilisation once and for all,” said Hichilema.
