Zambia Police in Riot gear on Airport Road during the laying of the foundation stone by PResident Sata at the Kenneth Kaunda International airport
Suspected Patriotic Front (PF) cadres this afternoon attempted to storm the UPND secretariat in Lusaka’s Rhodespark area in an act of retaliation following yesterday’s fracas in Matero.

Suspected UPND cadres yesterday attacked and destroyed PF offices in Matero constituency after their rally was disrupted by the police.
Quick action by the police prevented the PF cadres from storming the secretariat.

And UPND Secretary General Steven Katuka has told QTV News that police were alerted upon hearing that PF cadres were matching to the secretariat.

Mr. Katuka says this kind of barbaric behavior from the PF is unacceptable.

He has wondered how peace will be guaranteed during the campaign period if such things begin to happen before the official campaigns.
Mr. Katuka however, advised UPND youths manning the secretariat to cooperate with the police as they were there to provide security.

    • Having worked in several war torn countries I say this is not a good sign of things. Such acts of agitation by the UNITED PARTY FOR NATIONAL DESTRUCTION (UPND) are tantamount to stoking a fire which can easily get out of control the Hungry Hyena (HH) being a blood thirsty cretin of an animal should man up and condemn the cowardly acts by his thugs who are looking for any excuse to start trouble, how silly can some people get??? Their brains are not evolved to the same level as normal human beings..cretins is what they are..hopeless, useless what nonsense!!!..
      We won’t be taken for fools by these blood thirsty animals!

    • Good day,

      I have just heard that the police actually allowed the PF Thugs to walk past central to go and attack UPND officers at the secretariat but when the UPND super thugs beat up the alcoholic weak PF minion thugs then the police quickly went there. Lolest

    • Both PF and UPND will find themselves at the Hague/ICC. HH has a lot to lose in terms of his International Business and Professional reputation and image while the others have little or no interest in their reputations. He needs to be wary of those who may advise him that it is time to return violence for violence. He needs to restrain his cadres even though it may be challenging at times when severely provoked, they need to use Martin Luther King non violence approaches instead.

    • This is Lungu’s PFoolish strategy to either force a postponement of the elections or get UPND to boycott the elections. Lungu is desperate to “win” and wants to use the same strategy he used against Miles Sampa in Kabwe in 2014. Zambians have to fight for their rights to free and fair elections. That’s why

  3. IN THREE MONTHS ZAMBIANS HAVE A CHOICE TO CHANGE THE DESTINY OF THE COUNTRY BY CHOOSING THE RIGHT PERSON FOR THE PRESIDENCY POSITION. BELOW IS A COMPARISION BETWEEN THE TWO MAJOR POLICTICAL PLAYERS:
    LUNGU POPOULARLY KNOW AS “ME TOO”
    – Current PF presidential candidate
    – Encourages violence and cannot win on peaceful terms. Lungu just use money and not intimidate or kill people.
    – Lawyer but “Awa sure!” very different from the late LPM. History of failure as lawyer
    – Accused of swindling a client and found guilty
    – Highest cost of living and corruption levels under his presidency
    – Worst currency performance during his presidency
    – Lost priorities as he commissions everything like foreign shopping malls that least benefit the Zambian people
    – Increases his own salary in bad…

  4. HAKAINDE HICHILEMA POPULARLY KNOW AS HH
    – Current UPND presidential candidate
    – Economist and successful businessman
    – Accused of privatization which was actually done by the government and had no to little involvement other than consultative work.
    – History of success – turn things around
    – Understands the fundamentals of the economy
    – Does not believe in heavy borrow but been economically independent
    – Articulates issues and deals with them in a proper manner
    – Focused and understands how to prioritize
    – Visionary and forward thinking planner

    • Nono. Prove it??? The fact Lungu defrauded a client and facts are there to speak for themselves. Plus HH was not the one handling the whole privatization. It was Grant Thornton who received the money for the services rendered. HH was an employee/associate of Grant Thornton. Above it all, the government of the day was the decided if they thought Grant Thornton not HH was wrong in their evaluation they should have requested for a revaluation by another firm?? plus the finance minister back then was not stupid not to understand and make the right choice in Zambia’s best interest

  5. The choice is clear. Please can all well meaning Zambians stand up against violence, corruption and incompetency. Zambia deserves better and the time is now. Please ensure you VOTE OUT LUNGU on August 11 for a better Zambia we cannot have people like Fr. Bwalya in the political scene again. The chap is demonically possessed. God have mercy on your sole Bwalya. Even as former man of God you cannot behaviour like you are doing. Shame on you!!!

  6. Why you shouldn’t vote for HH
    – He has acquired a huge debt within a short period, contracted lots of infrastructure while most Zambians go hungry, because priorities.
    – He has abused the POA, always instructing the police to disturb & frustrate the ruling party
    – He has made deals with courts in order to drop some of the charges from wanted persons like Rupiah, Dora etc
    – HH has watched mealie-meal prices go haywire, he has watched the local currency go haywire but anyway, it’s global

    Don’t vote for HH!

  7. This is a positive first from the police whom we have to accept as exclusive employees of the PF and not Zambians. I am still reeling from shock that they have actually come to the rescue of non-PF Zambians. Congrats and may the spirit that possessed them today to carry out this peace mission continue to possess them until we wrestle power from the thugs. Unbelievable, I might say.

  16. Political violence is yet to start. The race is too tight. UPND will not be easily intimidated by PF hence the scuffles. Why should you resort to violence when it HH or Edgar who will be enjoying after August 11 while you guys who are fighting continue to live in poverty and poor health care. Just get the money when they give it to you to cause violence and use to empower yourselves.

  19. There is a common police tactic whereby such things can be prevented by hitting the main organisers of such evil acts .We all know from the past that Kabimba while working as PF secretary general organised ba Pompwe to escort him to the ACC offices as a way of intimidating officers there. The same could be true with what is happening now. These crimes may have some hidden political influence .The police will do the country a huge favour by targeting the people financing these despicable crimes. Nonetheless it is fair to say , police action is now influenced by political directives not evidence of crime as a result of which politicians are blameless even when they could be behind all this. Lungu needs to be above selective justice and act.

  22. The psychology of a desperate man. They are very dangerous and jittery at the possibility of losing the 6th time, how they do they face their wives and children who they have promised to sleep in state house. HH has lost so many elections that he has no confidence that he can win this one.
    Now all Zambians must know that a desperate man is a very dangerous man. He is so afraid of elections that he will use foul language just to cause violence. He just can’t stand the now obvious possibility of losing for the last time and being kicked out of UPND by the likes of Jack mwimbu Gary nkombo.
