United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres, led by party secretary general Winstone Chibwe and deputy spokesperson, Edwin Lifwekelo were yesterday attacked at Parliament building by suspected PF cadres.

The UPND cadres were at Parliament to present a petition meant to stop the allocation of K1.4 billion to Zambia’s fifth President’s retirement home.

The suspected PF cadres arrived in different minibuses and threw stones at the unsuspecting UPND cadres forcing journalists and security personnel at the Parliament gates to run for safety. Quick action by police quelled the confusion leading to the arrest of the 18 suspected PF cadres.

Lusaka Police Chief, Joyce Kasosa confirmed that the 18 had been detained and were being screened to ascertain who were involved in the unruly behaviour.

“We have apprehended 18 people during the confusion at Parliament, though we have not charged them yet as we are still screening them,” Ms Kasosa said.

When calm was restored, Mr Chibwe proceeded to hand the petition to UPND Kabompo West Member of Parliament (MP), Lufuma Ambrose.

  1. Non charged Yet?
    So its legal for them to get past the gates!

    Lets see how many are charged out of the whole ot ad who paid for te minibuses?
    They have a sponsor who needs to be charged with inciting violence at a govt location.

  2. You see that?This whole party never plays by set rules from its head to the village cadre and when i said yesterday that Sata may have orchestrated the move to rid parliament of opposition they attacked me like bees.No protocol for Sata,no rules & no laws for cadres,no opposition in parliament and woe unto you if you’re not Bemba Sata won’t notice you for cushy appoinments.

  3. Not suspected, they are pf cadres as reported by muvi tv.

    Zambia, country with Sata in the drivers seat. A man as blind as a bat. Although he’s got a good sized congregation of thieves around him.

  4. The Policce knew and wanted the UPND Crew to be stoned. They only allowed 5 to carry out a peaceful demo. next time UPND just notify the Police and go ahead with or without police excort as u just need to Notify them.
    Most cadres were let GO and innocent passer by were arrested so that NO PF Cadre is charged.

    PF Police we tired of u.

  5. Bloggers were hurling insults after the unfortunate stoning of our players in SA. Now, if I may ask, what is the difference between these stone throwing ZAMBIANS and those SOUTH AFRICANS??? The target? The nationality? Huh?

    • Some people think MMD and UPND are not Zambians and therefore fair meat to target for insults, attacks and the like. They are so swallowed into cheap politics that they don’t realise that it is  infact the whole “Zambia” that suffers as a result. Not even the President is able to see this judging by his mute mouthpiece at a time he should be coming out strong in condemning such primitive and barbaric acts.

  14. The pf is taking us back to the sixties during the struggle for independence.what kind of human beings make up this evil organisation? Why are they struke with deadening fear each time the UPND pursues a noble cause? One day Zambia will go up in flames and the world will squarely hold sata culpable.Zambians who voted for sata should be blamed for giving power to a wrong person.

  17. It seems all major police divisions are headed by women cops, what’s up?
    As long as the president chooses to be quiet on these unfortunate incidences people will be excused to conclude that this PF thuggery is organised and commanded from the very top.

  18. LT it’s well and good to have beauties in ZP as most look like models now, but when you report on serious matters you should accompany the article with appropriate photos depicting the scenerio, or the tempo of the article.

  19. Declaring Psalm 35 and Psalm 109 over everyone and the root cause of violence and chaos in the country. Zambia is a peaceful country and we do not need it to be tainted, the legacy of a peaceful nation shall live on to the next generations. Opposition Parties continue maintaining your calm and Maturity and Zambians themselves will decide. Why are the churches, NGO’s so quiet over what is going on in the country, tribalism, Barotseland, oppression and refusal of rallies. May the Lord arise over our Land, Zambia belongs to Jesus and our land shall not be defiled by evil, Jesus defeated all evil on the cross of Calvary.

  23. May i ask what is the duty of the police for law breakers? other law breakers are released others are in jail in kaoma.Several times UNZA students break property such as windows, cars etc when they are demostrating but usually they are released equally the same with Coppebelt University students.But for poor Lozis they are detained for just tearing part of the draft constitution.Very shameful indeed.PF cadres break the law they are released.

  24. Those sending these youths(PF & MMD) should stop this habit. Sata will defitely get his house because that is what the law says. So I dont see why PF should stop UPND from demostrating and I dont see why Upnd should protest either.

  25. Zambian youths join hands and fight leaders who break the law like pf president who boasts that he’s untouchable. He’s supreme. Meaning he can ignore the zambian constitution. Our constitution does’nt provide for untouchable president his powers are under checks by alert opposition. Under this president the country has drifted into dictatorship. We have to stand up against dictatorship at all cost now!

  27. Violence perpetuated by PF cadres is official under the jungle rules formulated by the PF Secretariat with the approval of State House. The Police have been directed never to arrest such thugs in the service of PF. The unfortunate reality is that this country is piling up explosive material that will later explode to uncontrolabloe levels. If God ever exists, MAY GOD HEAR THE SILENT PRAYERS of the down-trodden people of Zambia. As for the Botswana Ministers, let them stay out of our country’s affairs.

  28. Typical, very unfortunate as such behaviors have been associated with our President during his times in MMD and even UNIP. I thought being president now, he would condemn such. ZAMBIA WILL NEVER MOVE FORWARD.
