Government has warned that all perpetrators of the violence that occurred in Bweengwa in Monze district over the weekend will not escape the long arm of the law.

Chief Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili said the act is criminal, barbaric and incompatible with the country’s democratic dispensation which espouses unity and co-existence in diversity.

Mr. Kambwili who is also Minister of Information and Broadcasting Services said the violence perpetrated by the alleged United Party for National Development (UPND) carders in Bweengwa should be condemned with the contempt it deserves.

The Minister said this in a statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka today following the attack and holding captive of a convoy of government vehicles and officers including a ZANIS media crew in Bweengwa over the weekend by suspected UPND Carders.

And Mr. Kambwili said government is disappointed and holds the UPND liable for the Bweengwa violence which occurred over the weekend.

Mr. Kambwili said government’s conviction about the perpetrators of the violence being UPND is supported by the statement by UPND member Douglass Syakalima in today Post newspaper where he has endorsed the Bweengwa violence.

Meanwhile, Mr. Kambwili said competition for political office should be on merit and issue based and not through violence, tribalism regionalism or any other consideration.

Mr. Kambwili has since urged Zambians to reject political parties that believe in violence saying the nation has enjoyed peace for over 50 years which should not be sacrificed by selfish motives of few disgruntled and misguided individuals.

    • To try and cot Kambwili to any political party or alliance is naive. Then again OA is naive from top to bottom. KAMBWILI is a liability to any political party and is to be distanced with. OA is not under 5, it’s under 3 political ‘alliance’. It’s not even an alliance it’s a group of people masquerading as politicians. They are a reservoir of some people that may be useful for other uses.

    • The video and pictures are bad. They need parental guidance to view them. Upnd is the worst violent party in the history of politics in Zambia.

  4. The midiocrity of African politics is that violence is okay if it’s beneficial to his political party

  6. I actually praised Kambwili for his statement he posted on Facebook earlier today where he condemned all forms of violence including the attack on Miles Sampa. But this ZANIS report seems to be off tangent to the former.

  7. This whole story is confusing. The abducted Govt officials and PF Cadres were rescued by the Police, how did the police fail to condone the area to arrest the culprits that same day?
    On violence, both HH and ECL must condemn and tame their cadres and ensure that Police are given full authority to deal with any cadre causing violence.
    Those of us who are not into politics are now living in fear in our own country. We do not want to go back to the time Kaunda introduced Vigilantes, who terrorised innocent citizens.

  8. Thickneck is right on one thing. We are determined to kick out perpetrators of violence & we know them.
    We also know that this incidence was stage managed. Where are the people who were abducted? With this excitement we would have seen at least the Zanis guy on TV telling us his ordeal.
    If we can’t live together we surely can live apart. Unity is by choice not by coercion.

  9. These are signs of panic mode by the PF. The symptoms are almost full blown. Sad thing is that there is no cure.

  11. Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni once said leaders who “overstayed” in power were the root of Africa’s problems, but 30 years later he is aiming for a fifth term.

  14. We saw pictures of tipper trucks of PF attackers at Ndola Airport and unless I was sleeping I have not heard of any arrests so where is this incompetent government going to find the attackers from Bweengwa? The police have already said it was at night and they couldn’t see kikiki
