This morning we have seen the terrible impact of politically motivated violence and thuggish behaviour with our own eyes in Mongu.
After Mr Hichilema was unable to fly out of Mongu this morning due to a visit to the area by Acting President Guy Scott, PF cadres targeted UPND supporters. One UPND provincial trustee is now feared dead after being hit with a plank by a PF cadre in the presence of police.
Mr Hichilema immediately gave a statement to the press on the subject, condemning the action of thugs and calling for the arrest of the perpetrator.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the victim.
