SUSPECTED United Party for National Development (UPND) cadres in Livingstone on Wednesday evening ambushed and attacked a PF campaign vehicle with stones shattering windows to the vehicle.

The attacks left PF district mobilization chairman Ageffrey Brill and District vice information and publicity secretary Philimon Musonda injured.

And the Foundation for Democratic Process (FODEP) in Livingstone condemned in the strongest terms possible the unfortunate attack on the PF members that resulted in destruction of the motor vehicle.

Mr Brill, who confirmed the development after reporting the mater to Livingstone Central police, said the unfortunate incident happened in Zambezi ward after the two party officials were strategizing on how to carry out campaigns for the following day with Zambezi ward PF aspiring candidate Victor Bwalya.

Speaking in an interview in Livingstone on Thursday, Mr Brill disclosed that it was after the meeting that suspected UPND cadres ambushed them and started throwing stones at the moving vehicle.”

“As we were coming from the meeting, we were actually ambushed by the UPND cadres who were clad in party regalia and others where hiding in some nearby flowers and others on top of roofs. I was in the car and just heard stones flying from every direction and when I looked through the window, what I saw were people in red uniforms with their faces covered with masks.

“It was a rain of stones and I told my friend to speed off so that we safeguard our lives and like I said I saw the UPND uniform and this incident happened near the house of the UPND chairperson for Zambezi ward,”Mr Brill said.

He said it was unfortunate that the UPND were targeting their former members who had decided to support the PF.

“It is unfortunate that UPND is also targeting its former members who exercised their democratic right of joining the PF, because of this they have been making threats to burn my house and to burn Mr Musonda’s house and other properties,” he said.

Mr Musonda said his family was leaving in fear as a result of some suspected UPND cadres who were issuing death threats to him.

“From the time I defected from the UPND my life has been in danger and I seek maximum protection from the police because my family is having sleepless nights. The UPND should learn to co-exist and practice clean campaigns that are mot marred by violence,”Mr Musonda said.

FODEP Livingstone chairperson Gideon Musonda said it was extremely sad that despite so many calls to have non violence campaigns, some individuals and political parties seemed to be perpetuating it.

“It is in this view that FODEP wishes to call upon all political parties and all the citizens to refrain from engaging themselves in any violent conduct. People should understand that in a Democracy, people should be able to live in diversity and tolerate each other despite any provocation,” he said.

But UPND Livingstone District Spokesperson Neto Halwabala challenged the PF officials to single out the cadres that attacked them so that his party could institute disciplinary measures.

“We also wish to state from the onset that both colleagues who were attacked know us very well and they should not fail to identify their attackers rather than just issuing sweeping statement. Let them name their attackers for us as a party to deal with them by handing them to police,”Mr Halwabala said

    • This is staged by PF, the car is not even extensively damaged, If it were UPND cadres who stoned that car, it would have been extensively damaged and beyond repair.

    • This is provocation – why should PF have Bembas everywhere, even as far away as Livingstone? This is provocation of the worst kind. We know that PF is a Bemba party, a supremacist party. That’s why useless Bembas like Chikwanda cannot be fired even after collapsing the Zambian economy for the second time.

    • UPND are always provoking PF and crying foul when PF reacts. UPND are like that annoying young brother that has a habit of starting fights and expecting you to help him out.

  3. IF HH WINS, GBM WINS? MY FOOT!
    It is unfortunate indeed. My biggest worry is if HH wins, automatically GBM is Vice President of a ruling party. May be Defence Minister please. It will be hard to reason with this man and most people will be depressed with his brutish and arrogant way of life.

    • This is exactly what happened. How do you drive around making noise when people want to sleep? They were actually beaten by incensed residents because of their stupidity!

  11. As usual some gullible people believe this story….why would Upnd cadres only break a side window and leave the rest of the car body scratch-free? That guy says “it was raining stones from all directions” but the only evidence here shows that some PF cadres drove the car into Upnd stronghold, stopped the vehicle, one of them disembarked, picked a big stone, and bashed the car window in. They had to do this after the United Nations, Amnesty International and other non-governmental organisations have condemned the PF party of violence and murders ahead of the August general elections.
    This is a ploy to try and rope the Upnd into the wave of violence that the thug party have been unleashing on the opposition party.
    Everyone has been watching carefully and the PF is not fooling the…
