Patriotic Front youths in Lusaka have welcomed the directive by the party leadership to ban the wearing of military like regalia.

PF Lusaka province Information and Publicity Secretary Stanley Chiumya says the ban is timely especially now that the Country is headed for a general election.

Mr. Chiumya says PF youths are also aware that during this period the international community is closely following happenings in Zambia which include political activities.

He says PF youths should therefore heed the directive the party leadership has given without fail.

Meanwhile, UPND National Youth Chairperson and Senanga Member of Parliament Likando Mufalali has appealed to Zambians, especially the youth to join in efforts aimed bringing conclusion to the many conflicts plaguing the country.

Mr. Mufalali says the youth should accept to work together in good faith to build bridges to promote enduring peace.

He says the situation where the country tends to be associated with violence is totally unacceptable and blots on the image of the country.

And Operation Young Vote (OYV) says it plans to launch a program dubbed ‘Violence Must Fall’ aimed at curbing political violence before the commencement of official campaigns.

OYV Executive Director Guess Nyirenda says the program will be implemented in all parts of the country.

Mr. Nyirenda says in order for people to freely take part in political activities and the electoral process, there is need to first of all curb the escalating political violence in the country.

He says his organization will engage all stakeholders in the electoral and political systems to ensure they too play a role in ending violence.

Mr. Nyirenda has since appealed to all stakeholders to support initiatives aimed at ending all negative vices that may hinder the holding of the free and fair elections.

    • In fact the campaign should be renamed “Lungu Must Fall” because he’s a product and author of violence! The fall of Lungu will be followed by the fall of violence.

    • I have no doubt most of these cadres in military gear were sitting in group D sitting roll . I am not a cadre and I was in group A.
      This cadrerism is a symptom of a lazy man and woman. Just how could you line up and behave inhumane way just because somebody promised you a packet of shake shake? My brothers and sisters these politicians will win and be driven in 4×4 SUV while you remain poor. Look atfer yourselves bane. Work hard and feed yourself with nice food and enjoy your life as God made it. These nothing painful than wasting your time on petty things like dancing and fighting. God loves us all poor or rich. Work hard and look to God. You will be happy.

  2. No mercy for these characters once this government falls. They should be hunted down like dogs and brought before the law to account for their misdeeds.

  3. Suntwe wa Suntwe i can assure you whatever hate you have towards the president remember what you don’t appreciate you cant benefit from it. Its like in school when you hate a teacher of a particular subject how can u pass that subject. God has given us a duty to pray for our leaders not to discredit or insult them. Am not of any particular party but i have observed a very big disease we Zambians have of not appreciating one another and its because of this why our country is lagging behind. All we do is to speak ill about others remember what the bible say don unto others what you expect other to do unto you. Don’t be deceived a man reapth only what he sows. Please i appeal to all good citizens of our great country Zambia let us unity together and begin to appreciate one another in order…

      Leaders must be exemplary in their conduct and in discharging duties they have been mandated to perform. Respect is earned. Stating facts about the deplorable leadership in Zambia isn’t an insult. For example Lungu condones violence and when it’s used as a vehicle to catapult him into power he has no problem promoting and endorsing the vice. Maybe you are not aware of the violent methods he approved of to ascend to power? It’s not insulting the president when we say he is a hypocrite and behind that seemingly charming facade there lurks a ruthless evil mind, it’s the truth as the recent machinations to paint UPND party as violent can attest. Just accept that Lungu is the author of the violence as Suntwe wa Suntwe already pointed out.

  4. The unemployed young men who have been mobilized by the PF leadership to attack opposition members and the general public cannot change their bad behaviour.The PF thugs are controlled by Davies Chama,Frank Bwalya,Chishimba Kambwili and Mumbi Phiri; the situation will be normalized when the PF loses elections.

  6. I have no problem with the actual initiative. I do have a problem with it sounding a little like putting an abusive guy in charge of an initiative for gender based violence…

  7. I hear you Likando Mufalali, MP for Senanga, UPND National Youth Chairperson. You are the exception in your party. The rest will never admit that they could be at fault, they just see faults in others. Including assuring us how they will run the economy better when they have never even run a local council before. Those who have been in government before as defense, commerce or other ministers are tainted with corruption, Zesco tenders hang around their necks, are womanisers, wife batterers, insulters, etc all the bad things that the original UPND correctly stood up against and condemned, but now embrace. If I may ask you Hon Mufalali, are you in the right party to start with? Shouldn’t you be with humble, man of the people, angelic Edgar fostering development?

  8. PF Youths should be Leaders in exemplary Youth Leadership. They are in gov’t and they should seek to honour their Party through 1). Eschewing public violence 2). Extending Friendship/Diplomacy to opposition groups 3). Staying off the streets unless it’s to take part in a lawfully arranged gathering 4). Supporting legitimate Election campaigns and staying within that remit. 5). Stay safe by supporting one another, but not carrying weapons, spears, knockberries etc.! Be cheeky within the Law!

    Remember His a Excellency President Lungu, his demeanour and presentation before the people of Zambia and emulate his presentation of humbleness.
