Tutwa rubbishes PF lies over Sinda clash with UPNDBy Joseph Mwenda on 19 Feb 2018
Kabwe Central member of parliament Tutwa Ngulube yesterday ordered PF youths to pull down false reports they published on Facebook claiming that opposition UPND cadres attacked ruling party supporters in a violent clash that left one person shot dead.
Renowned PF youth Max Chongu posted a statement on Facebook saying: “One person shot in Sinda as UPND becomes violent, beating anyone sympathising with PF”
But Ngulube who is a PF lawyer ordered Chongu to delete the false claim and asked him to apologise for misleading people.
“Max, can you retract your post about one person being shot dead in Sinda and please apologise for misleading all the blogs with unverified information,” ordered Ngulube, adding “We are trying to get rid of alarmists. There is too much rumour mongering on social media to the extent that any lies occupy more space than the truth. Zambia is slowly being damaged by busy bodies seeking recognition through unsolicited publication of fake news.”
On Saturday, violent scenes characterised the newly established Sinda District as PF cadres who were attending party activities organised by Secretary General Davies Mwila, spotted UPND youths mobilising to go to Chipata for their card renewal exercise.
The confrontation that ensued left opposition UPND supporters seriously injured before police could separate the rival camps.
“Contrary to reports circulating that one person was shot in Sinda of Eastern Province, the correct position is that while some UPND supporters from Sinda were getting ready to proceed to Chipata for their party programme today, some PF supporters coming from Petauke who also had their party activity in Sinda spotted them, disembarked from their motor vehicle and begun throwing stones at them. Police officers rushed there and managed to calm the situation,” police spokesperson Esther Katongo explained the incident in a statement.
“Two UPND supporters identified as Thobias Banda aged 46 and Patricia Banda aged 50 sustained injuries. Medical report forms have been issued.”
