Patriotic Front(PF) Secretary General Davies Chama has refuted media reports saying PF cadres on Sunday attacked Rainbow party Secretary General Wynter Kabimba in Chipata.
Mr. Chama said that PF has nothing to do with Mr. Kabimba for him to accuse the ruling party members to engage in such acts.
Mr. Chama said that the Rainbow party Secretary General is not a threat to the ruling party adding that he is not even a popular politician.
Mr. Chama has further accused Mr. Kabimba of hiring youths to masquerade as PF supporters in a bid to de-campaign the ruling party.
Mr. Chama said that the party is yet to gather more information on the alleged attacks.
Yesterday suspected Patriotic Front cadres interrupted a radio programme on Breeze FM in Chipata which featured Rainbow Party leader Wynter Kabimba.
Mr Kabimba was a guest on the Political Hour radio programme but with only 10 minutes into the programme, the cadres started throwing stones forcing Mr. Kabimba to immediately abandon the programme and vacate the station.
Mr Kabimba sped off with his team while other Rainbow party members who accompanied Mr. Kabimba and Breeze FM staff were forced to scamper for safety as the unruly cadres forced themselves into the station building.
Breeze FM management regretted the incident and disclosed that no member of staff or the Rainbow party officials was hurt in the incident.
Some Breeze FM staff who opted to remain anonymous revealed that the cadres were mostly from the MMD paid by a known MMD Member of Parliament who is serving in the PF government to disrupt the programme.
But in an interview shortly after the incident, Mr Kabimba said he will be back on Breeze FM last evening at 18 Hrs to 19 Hours to finish off the programme.
“The die is cast and there is no looking back until our people are set free from the jaws of oppression the struggle continues no amount of intimidation will stop us”, Mr Kabimba said.
And Sports Minister Vincent Mwale has denied being linked to PF cadres who attacked Rainbow Party General Secretary Wynter Kabimba in Chipata when he featured on Breeze FM.
Mr. Mwale, who is also Chipangali MMD Member of Parliament, has told QFM News via telephone that accusations that he sent the suspected PF cadres to attack Mr. Kabimba are unfair.
Mr. Mwale says just because he was in Chipata yesterday and went to Breeze FM minutes before Mr. Kabimba’s scheduled radio program does not mean he organized the suspected PF youths.
He explains that he went to the radio station because to pick up a reporter to cover his donation of roofing sheets to Kamutundu Reformed Church in Zambia and Chanyumbu primary School.
Mr. Mwale says in his ten years of being in politics, he has never at any one time engaged or organize cadres to engage in violent activities.
