Patriotic Front-PF violence has continued to manifest with rival camps in Eastern Province exchanging punches.
Media reports from Chipata indicate that the punches of fury flew in Chipata just after the arrival of PF Secretary General Davies Mwila.
The cadres broke a gate at Eastern Comfort Lodge where the party had organized the meeting.
Police in riot gear was called to calm down the situation.
Eastern Province PF is divided with others calling for elections suggesting that all the Provincial committee members are merely appointed.
However, Mr. Mwila who is in the Province on a mobilization tour of PF structure in all the districts has said that there will be no elections in Eastern Province.
