THE United Party for National Development (UPND) says it will not protect any of its members engaging in political violence.
UPND deputy spokesperson Edwin Lifwekelo has urged party supporters to refrain from using violence to express their grievances following the party’s defeat in the August 11 general elections.
Several UPND cadres in different parts of the country ran amok damaging property in protest against the re-election of President Lungu.
Mr Lifwekelo said in an interview yesterday that the opposition political party does not condone violence and those perpetrating the vice are doing so at their own peril.
“It is not right to take the law into your own hands and as a party we are against those engaging in violence to show displeasure of losing an election,” he said. “There can only be one winner after an election and that is President Lungu.”
