PF National Youth Chairman Chishimba Kambwili has attacked the UPND describing the opposition party as a violent and tribal grouping that will never form Government.
Mr Kambwili has since likened the UPND to South Africa’s Inkhata Freedom Party which he said has gone into extinction because of its violent nature.
Addressing a media briefing at his office in Lusaka, Mr Kambwili said Zambians will continue rejecting the UPND because it is full of violence.
Mr Kambwili who is also Youth and Sports Minister was commenting on the recent confusion at the Magistrate Court involving UPND cadres which resulted in a dozen party members sustaining injuries after a car bashed into them.
“You remember the Inkhata Freedom Party of South Africa, where is it today? It has died because of its violence. Members of the Inkhata Freedom Party were moved around South Africa with spears threatening people all over the place and the people rejected it. This is what will happen to the UPND very soon,” Mr Kambwili said.
He said the UPND is tribal and violent and accused party leader Hakainde Hichilema of wanting to use violence to go to State House.
“HH knows that Zambians can never vote for him so he is trying to use violence and cause confusion in the country so that the international community can condemn this government, we know his tricks and this is why I have told our youths not to react to the UPND’s provocation,” he said.
Mr Kambwili also ruled out possibilities of dialogue between PF and UPND youths.
“We cannot dialogue with people from the UPND because they are not sober minded. Even if we called them for a meeting here they will pick up a fight, how do you then dialogue with such violent and unruly people?”
