Zambia Direct Democracy Movement (ZDDM) Vice President Charles Kafumbo says the ZDDM is imploring President Edgar Chagwa Lungu to host an inter-party dialogue to tackle political violence.

In a letter dated 7th April, 2017, Kafumbo says President Lungu’s predecessors Dr. Kenneth Kaunda and late Fredrick Jacob Titus Chiluba held intra-party meetings to address issues in the political scene that were cardinal.

As ZDDM we ask President Edgar Chagwa Lungu to host an inter-party dialogue to tackle political violence” Kafumbo said

Meanwhile, Patriotic Front (PF) Deputy Secretary General Mumbi Phiri has said the ruling PF have not time for dialogues with the opposition UPND because they are charlatans and are the ones championing violence across the country.

She said PF recently buried a young man who was stabbed by the suspected UPND cadres and PF will not associate itself with such a brutal political party that is taking peoples’ lives.

“We are not interested to dialogue with the UPND because they are violent and they killed our member in Kanyama” Ms. Phiri said

On 3rd April, 2017, a youth identified as Stephen Kalipa, aged 20 years, was believed to have been stabbed with a knife by an unknown person suspected to have been among UPND cadres after the police sealed off Twashuka grounds in Lusaka’s Kanyama Township.

  1. It should not be an inter party dialogue, it should be a bilateral party dialogue between the two violent parties, PF and UPND.Why are you trying to drag other parties in to this when the culprits are known. If you want to drag a third party as party of the dialogue, it must the violent Police

  2. Lungu is a rats munyel0 and does not give a shlt about anyone apart from himself and immediate family. As long as he is getting his allowances and cuts from deals he don’t care about the peace of this nation. He is a coward and would run away in exile if icc charged him with the crimes he has committed. That is why he wants Zambia out of icc. I remember lungu at unza and he was always a cowardly chap who used other people to fight his battles. He hasn’t changed a bit . His days are numbered

  3. That’s the problem when you have people such as Davies Mwila as a leader what do you expect. This man thrives on violence no sense reasoning at all look at what he was agitating for in Kabwe. This Country Zambia need serous prayer although people don’t seem to realise we are in trouble in terms of leadership we need Gods intervention.

  4. Kafumbo is out of his mind. In what capacity would illegitimate Lungu host such a useless interparty meeting?Most of the lawlessness and violence is from Lungu and PF so what is the point of holding a meeting with the Panga Family? Until the Petition is heard and Lungu is declared by the Court as Winner and duly elected President he has No moral authority to host such a meeting. Illegitimate Lungu should first allow the Petition to be heard and Lungu should prove in Court that he won the 2016 Election fairly and genuinely. Then the Court will declare him Winner and duly elected. Without the Petition Hearing Lungu will stew in illegitimacy and nobody will recognize an Election Thief.# Let the Petition be heard in Court.
