PATRIOTIC Front (PF) Secretary General Wynter Kabimba has that United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema was not attacked by PF members when he featured on a radio show in Ndola.
Speaking today when he featured through a telephone call on ‘Big Issue’ Radio Programme on Feel Free FM in Chipata, Mr Kabimba, however, condemned the violence which took place in Ndola.
Mr Kabimba said that Mr Hichilema was merely attacked by ordinary citizens who were angered with his outbursts on the Head of State.
“Mr Hakainde Hichilema was not attack by PF members but ordinary citizens who were angered with his outburst on the radio in Ndola,” he said.
Last month, Mr Hichilema disclosed that the suspected PF cadres attacked his entourage and interrupted an interview he was attending at a radio station in Ndola and that they were armed with among other things guns and machetes.
Mr. Hichilema said that he suspects that the PF cadres whom he referred to as being thugs may have come from Kitwe and Luanshya specifically sent to allegedly kill him.
Mr. Hichilema told the media that his conviction that the said suspected PF cadres came for his life is based on the fact that even after he left the radio station to open up his party’s new office in within Ndola, the same cadres pounced again on his entourage discharging fire arms while the Police watched the ordeal.
The UPND leader also wondered why up now the Police have not arrested any of the suspected PF cadres when they were present at both incidents when members of his party were being attacked by the suspected PF cadres.
