HH must condemn Monze violence – PF

General News HH must condemn Monze violence – PF

The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) has challenged opposition UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema to condemn the attack on PF members in Monze Friday by suspected UPND cadres.

In a statement made available to media yesterday, Mr. Chanda says Mr. Hichilema knows too well that PF officials were arrested on the Copperbelt Province after his meetings were allegedly disrupted and the Head of State made clear and firm directives in that instance.

WE ARE CALLING ON UPND LEADER HAKAINDE HICHILEMA TO CONDEMN HIS CADRES ATTACKS AGAINST PF MOBILIZATION MEETING IN MONZE – SUNDAY CHANDA, VICE CHAIRPERSON, PF MEDIA AND PUBLICITY COMMITTEE

Lusaka, Zambia, 1STAugust 2015 – The Patriotic Front (PF) is concerned at United Party for National Development (UPND) and its leader Hakainde Hichilema’s play-victim attitude, that even after His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has shown dedicated political will to bring to book members of his own party to account for being accused of perpetrating violence against those with dissenting views. Mr. Hichilema knows too well that PF officials were arrested on the Copperbelt Province after his meetings were allegedly disrupted and the Head of State made clear and firm directives in that instance.

Mr. Hichilema knows that while he has been in Kasama, Northern Province, his UPND Cadres in Monze violently attacked a PF mobilization meeting which was scheduled to take place at Monze Golf Club. About 500 people among them former UPND provincial youth Secretary Twaambo Ndhlovu were defecting to the PF. Mr. Hichilema knows that before the defectors were formally received, about 150 suspected UPND cadres wielding an array of weapons including knives and pistols stormed the meeting and started attacking the people that had gathered for the PF meeting. Some of the attackers threatened to harm PF national mobilisation chairman Paul Moonga. The aggressors threw stones at the crowd seriously injuring two people who were rushed to Monze District Hospital.

While Mr. Hichilema is being welcomed peacefully in other parts of the country, including Kasama, we demand that he extends that goodwill in areas where his cadres enforce UPND’s Mapatizya formula. While in Kasama, Mr. Hichilema is reported to have said he felt at home as though he was in Monze. Once again we ask which Monze he referred to because the latest attack from his cadres in Monze does not fit into the hospitality he was given in Kasama. We are therefore demanding a clear condemnation of the violent attacks by Mr. Hichilema if indeed he is opposed to violence. Zambia has no space for political tendencies to play victim all the time.

We are also concerned that Police officers stood by and watched helplessly as some PF members begged them to stop the attackers. While it is not our intention to bring the Police into such matters, it is only prudent that the Zambia Police authorities investigate to establish the reported attitude from identified police officers.

Lastly, it is important for political parties to demand that citizens co-exist, irrespective of political or any other affiliation. The assorted political space Zambia has can only bring about the benefits of democracy if all leaders, without exception, condemn violence and celebrate the diversity.

    • But this chanda thing looks sick…..kikiki. no wonder his madness ..yaba!!!! Y do u hate hh so much? Show humility mr ***** u ar a human being not an animal chisushi cha jemerson

    • Right, with this kind of attitude by UPND cadres, next time don’t be CRYBABIES when some of you get your brains knocked out!

      Just because this kind of violence took place in Monze (a perceived UPND stronghold) does NOT justify such backward and barbaric acts. Always remember that Monze (Southern Province) is but just a part of Zambia. UPND will also need to meet and organize in places outside of SP for them to have any remote chance of wining presidential elections. Now imagine this kind of violence visiting UPND supporters in every place they try to organize outside of Monze. Can you see the futility of such behavior?

      But hey, all Political parties are free to chose the kind of legacy they want to be remembered by—just don’t CRY when others decide to reciprocate!

    • You PF have made the police to be very weak and unprofessional; that is what you get. When there is violence, you don’t necessarily need politicians to just be condemning the violence, but you need a strong and professional police that can act accordingly.

      The police are paid from tax payers to bring order and if they did not do there job, they are the ones that you should be addressing to and not HH.

      Okay, lets say HH condemns the violence in Monze, will that bring justice to the victims of those crimes? The police should act above politics; and this should start by police appointments not being made by politicians.

      Lets learn to find practical solutions to our problems.

    • PeterB, my thoughts exactly.
      These guys should also know that no local will attack HH or anyone anywhere in this country.
      Political violence in this country is carried out by the Kennedy Kamba boys from Lusaka & CB.
      The police in Monze stood by & watched helplessly because they knew who those violent thugs were, they also knew that if they did anything to them Libongani wouldn’t protect them against Kamba.

    • Disgusting to read such Nonsense from this fool?? Now they are complaining yet they embrace violence, which is one of the main pillars of PF?

      Let them be taught how it feels to be oppressed..

    • UPND should learn from PF and MMD on their conduct before being in power although they are still not good examples they were not violent , as of after being in power that was a different story which should not be condoned because they have been big let downs in a country that never knew pangas and guns, very sad indeed. In short if before being in power UPND is showing traits of violence one wonders what would happen if they are in power and yet UPND is branded as a party of intellectuals. A book is the most effective weapon against intolerance and ignorance Lyndon Baines Johnson. Education is the ability to listen to almost anything without losing your temper. FDD and NAREP have been violent free hope they can pull up their socks and start providing leadership and direction to the nation

    • Violent Free parties should be issuing such statements, actions speak louder than words,

    • HH is a gentleman leave him out of this rubbish. If you have been reading of late I believe you know that the UPND president hates violence.

  1. HH is known to distaste & condemn violence,& has been on record doing exactly that since his presidency over self sustained & rational resilient UPND!This purported fracas in Monze is believed to be instigated within pathetic PF mercenary mafias over money just like the Livingstone which lead to the dying of one Mafia from Monze!This corruptly newly acquired $1.25m eurobond will soon lead to many deaths as more pathetic PF mercenary mafias are smelling it & know very well that if they make such a noise,Jameson,Chama Kambwili will fund their activities!We told you that Paul Moonga is up to nothing & is just like many illiterate ‘Lounge Lizards’ like Fr. Bwalya,Sunday,Chama,Kaizer,RB,Kapita,Mumbi,… in pathetic PF.In any case,this attack is not there,no sane adult can take it as a gospel…

  3. Hh litole he can’t condemn this violence because he is on record telling his cadres to attack at pf . Never mind him because he is not a presidential material.

  4. Did UPND ask PF to ask for apology? Have you heard Chiefs , VJ and others condemning the act? The problem is with the police who could not arrest them. UPND fought MMD in Mufumbwe the blame was on MMD. The best we can do is to keep UPND away from the corridors of power

    • I was telling your leader hh that litole fye not your parents. If you want to insult back say Edgar not my parents mwembutuma shabantu. No wonder you are politically irrelevant in zambians politics.

  5. Jackass Chanda,

    Who you think you are to demand apology from anybody?

    You unadulterated piece of tr1bal1st scum have courage to ask others to apologize whilst hiding under the skirt of an old woman.

    Instead, make Nation happy, hung yourself.

  6. This street boy chanda makes me feel like vomiting whenever i see his article,his education is a loss Once met him in the streets of lusaka recently the boy looks miserable and desperate This life awe sure

  7. Mafia chanda sunday,upnd cadres were shot by known pf thugs in mulobezi no one condemned the vice,yo visionless kachasu man was quoted saying the opposite including kambwili led znbc,police all lied befor zed pipo,mind u we’re equiping ourselves fo self defence come 2016,mwanya no apology, after all those were pf sponsord thugs, all yo evil plans shall perish with u chi chanda chimbwi,God bless peaceful party & leader HH

  8. Very clever people these southerners , you want defectors, what’s your offer, peanuts NO!, moonga that pf cadre failed to honor the deal and they hammered, he thought he can buy defectors with vitenges, not southerners my friend, what they want is someone who is ready to restock the Cattle population and provide state of the art vet services, pf has no properly led down agricultural policies that’s it is not appealing to them. Next time pf cadres come demand for thousands make sure you finish their latest aquired eurobond, make sure after payment is made that’s when handle them diligently, no matter how many divide and rule tactics you come up with, you will always be caught up in your own web of deceit ba pf.

  9. This Sunday Chanda is a fool. Sunday grow up and learn to talk about real issues. Talk about cbu/unza/ loadsheding problems in the country not this rubbish.

  10. We are waiting for VJ and the Chiefs to condemn the Monze violence.This kind of hypocrisy should not be tolerated in Zambia.

    When others also react on Cow dung in other provinces,do not be cry babies.This behaviour is what will make UP and DOWN never form govt in our time….i mean in this century.

  11. HH is a hypocrite in my view.The way he is quick to do fake press briefings on meaningless issues,let him show leadership by condemning the violence.It is abnormal to expect your party to be respected in other peoples strong holds/Provinces while in Southern ,you think it should just be Janza…UPND only.

    People can easily tell that EL is a quality leader….on C/B,his staunch supporters were condemned and arrested.If it were UPND in power,i don’t think they would have the propensity to condemn Mapatizya formular.

  12. Yes show them in 2016 that tribalism is evil by rejecting them in all the 9 provinces and they can have their 100% Mapatizya vote in Southern !

  13. When the UPND cadre Mutepa was killed in Mutendere, ECL said it was a “normal”killing as he was killed when he had gone drinking beer. Even Kambwili went on to publicly conclude that Mutepa was not killed by PF cadres even before the police had even started their investigations. Now you want HH to condemn the violence in Monze??? Ciwamina galu??
    Zambia has never seen such a f00lish government it it’s history. It’s up to us to rescue ourselves in 2016

  14. This Sunday Chanda man (on behalf of PF) never saw the importance of political parties to demand that citizens co-exist, irrespective of political or any other affiliation when UPND were being battered by PF left, right and centre. Now that the the tables have turned, the game is being played in PF’s own half, they are now asking all leaders to condemn violence and accept diversity.

  15. This Sunday Chanda man (on behalf of PF) never saw the importance of political parties to demand that citizens co-exist, irrespective of political or any other affiliation when UPND were being battered by PF left, right and centre. Now that the the tables have turned, the game is being played in PF’s own half and sensing defeat, they are toning down and now asking all leaders to condemn violence and accept diversity.

  16. Those are suspected UPND but not yet known whether they are UPND or not. Who knows maybe they are your PFOOLS.

  17. I am disappointed on how Upnd can justify violence. Those blocking from overseas think they cannot be affected by the results of such violence. They are wrong!

    • When the attack is coming from UPND, it is violence but when it is from PF ,it is defending themselves . Your Chama shot and nearly killed a person with his gun in Western Province, and you are happy with that because it is PF. I will glorify anyone who stands up against the savageness or ruthlessness of the PF.

  18. Low-thinking Zambians! Clearly, PF are merely preparing a counter-attack…. It’s the abyss of Zambian politics. They want to use HH as a scapegoat. But UPND are not the government. PF are. The responsibility for maintaining law and order is in the hands of the PF government, not in UPND’s.

  19. LOL Chanda, you stage manage an attack then you condemn others for it? Shame on you boy! Just go and drink Jameson

  20. Why, should HH apologies , they were , PF , who promised defectors k200, for defecting, and not everyone was paid hence the fighting , HH , don’t apologies.

  21. hh must apologize…he cries the loudest when he is scratched by own shadows but now sees no need to condemn mapatizya violence by his cadres? shame!

  22. The. Upnd mapatizya formular is the reason they will never form govt.They think nega nega will give them all the votes to rule zambia….never ever.

  23. to start with you cant get 500 defecters in monze to joint the pfools . not true . that is why the police were supprised because they knew it was self styled attack by pf cadres. chanda is sick he needs chainama attention. any way 2016 kuya bebele . madam nawakwi is right these people need bana chimbusa.

  24. What is so special with Monze…..who told you that it is only for up and down.PF is ruling whether you like it or not…..even in 2016 victory is assured by the people of Zambia.
