Kantanshi Member of Parliament Anthony Mumba has called on UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema to publicly apologise over his cadres’ unruly conduct at the Lusaka High Court last week.
Mr Mumba says Mr Hichilema should apologise to the country and the international community and take responsibility for UPND cadres’ violent assault on the High Court.
He says the violence exhibited by UPND members has potential to undermine national stability, investment inflows and the rule of law.
Mr Mumba says Mr Hichilema should also reconsider his party’s resolve to defer the election of new office bearers, noting that the action is undemocratic.
He was speaking in an interview with ZNBC News in Lusaka.
Last Week, Unruly UPND Cadres Went On Rampage Smashing Property At The Court Premises During Hearing In Chambers A Case In Which The Party Is Seeking Its Right To Be Heard In The Dismissed Presidential Election Petition.
And the Church has condemned the riotous behaviour by UPND cadres who stormed the Lusaka High Court last week destroying property.
Victory of the World Ministries leader Reverend Stanley Chitundu said it is unfortunate that UNPD cadres behaved in a manner they did.
Reverend Chitundu said the UPND leadership should be held accountable and pay for the property damaged by its cadres.
Speaking to ZNBC News in a walk-in-interview, Reverend Chitundu has described the behaviour as disrespectful to both Government and the judicially.
The clergyman has wondered what kind of government the UPND under the leadership of Mr. Hakainde Hichilema and his Vice President Geoffrey Mwamba would have made with such unruly cadres.
Meanwhile, Reverend Chitundu has questioned the failure by the Laws Association of Zambia to comment on the incident that happened in their work field.
He said it is surprising that the legal body has decided to be mute on the matter despite it having occurred at a place where its members operate from.
Reverend Chitundu has since called on the police to ensure they bring to book all erring cadres and make them pay for the crime.
The Clergyman has since called for peace in the country and urged Zambians to continue praying for the leaders.
