Unruly PF youths today launched fresh attacks on the UPND campaign team in Tender area in Mafinga district in Muchinga province.
The PF youths who carried different kinds of weapons attacked UPND President Hakainde Hichilema and his team and managed to disperse the UPND supporters.
The residents panicked following the attacks and the rally had to be discontinued.
On Monday, the UPND team was again attacked by PF cadres in Shiwangandu area as PF cadres attempted to bring down the UPND helicopter.
UPND President Hakainde Hichilema described todays attacks as unacceptable.
Mr Hichilema revealed that PF supporters know no other way to vent their frustration or express their difference of opinion other than through violent means.
He said what is happening is pure political persecution by the PF, who have ferried cadres into Muchinga province from Lusaka to follow the UPND campaigns tour.
“This is what we have been calling on President Edgar Lungu to take note of as this chaos is getting out of hand. We have repeatedly said the ongoing breakdown in law and order and the loss of confidence in public institutions, such as the police service and other security wings, will result in untold misery that could engulf the whole country,” Mr Hichilema said.
Meanwhile, Mr Hichilema and his team proceeded to Nakonde and held a public rally at Nakonde grounds later in the afternoon.
Addressing the crowd, Mr. Hichilema said he will enhance trade in border areas and ensure transparency and efficiency in the clearing processes at borders. By promoting economic activity jobs will be created to advance the fight against poverty, he explained.
The UPND President and entourage, who arrived at the venue in light truck, also assured the country of improved security, particularly for those living in border areas.
Meanwhile, running mate Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba expressed confidence that Mr. Hichilema will open up borders for business and create jobs for the locals.
MMD President Dr. Nevers Mumba said that Zambia will be more united under Mr. Hichilema and charged that currently there is too much poverty and division in the area.
UDF President Miles Sampa said voting for President Lungu is as good as voting for people that the Zambian people removed in 2011.
Mr Hichilema and his delegation are in Muchinga Province on the campaign trail.
