Operation Young Vote OYV Executive Director Guess Nyirenda says political leaders must develop some kind of patriotism in the political parties in a bid to fight political violence which is a danger to the holding of a free and fair election.

And Mr Nyirenda says his organization will soon launch a campaign to sensitize the public on political violence.

He said Political leaders should be patriotic to the nation by reporting their cadres who are found perpetrating violence.

He said there is need for the Zambian people to vote in numbers and that political violence is recipe for vote apathy which usually turns to produce results which are not the reflection of the people’s will.

“As Operation Young Vote we are appealing to all political parties because it is their cadres who are in the forefront of political violence so we are appealing to all political parties to ensure that these cadre are brought to book. We must develop some kind of patriotism in these parties, if we our cadre is found wanting they must face the law. Political parties must be the first ones to take their cadres to face the law and not wait after other people have taken action and then start complaining,” he said.

And Mr Nyrenda said he organization will soon launch a campaign dabbed Violence Must Fall to sensitize stakeholders on the dangers of political violence.

He said the program will involve all the political stakeholders across the country and the campaign is a contribution to the holding of a violent free election as well as to try and ensure that the people turn out in numbers to vote.

  1. Refreshing indeed this notion of boma ni boma and unleashing violence in stations,markets ,solidarity marches etc must end it gives me a chill to have political players that demean other people and unleash violence on those that do not agree with them keep it up OYV our youths must learn that you can make your point without using violence and common ground can be found even when people do not agree with one another
