The UPND has demanded the immediate arrest of Zambia Direct Democracy Movement President Edwin Sakala after he called for the UPND to be banned in the Eastern Province.
And Mr Sakala has defended his call on the Eastern Province Royal Foundation to ban the UPND from the Eastern Province.
In a letter to Senior Chief Nzamane of the Eastern Province Royal Foundation, Mr Sakala said the UPND should not be allowed to exist in the Eastern Province because it does not mean well for Zambia.
Mr Sakala alleged that the UPND must know the people who were behind the post election violence in Southern Province which was targeted against people from Northern and Eastern Provinces.
He also alleged that the UPND knows the people behind the Man Mau movement which he said is now threatening to kill people of Eastern Province.
And UPND Secretary General Stephen Kakuta said police must arrest Mr Sakala for clearing inciting both tribal and civil war in the country.
In a statement, Mr Kakuta said if Mr Sakala is not arrest, the UPND will conclude that the unprofessional arrest of Hakainde Hichilema is based on tribal, political and personal hatred.
Below is Mr Sakala’s Letter to Paramount Chief Mpezeni
Zambia Direct Democracy Movement

Senior Chief Nzamane
Eastern Province Royal Foundation- EPRF
KUMAWA CHIEFS MUST BAN UPND
Nkhosi , on behalf of the Zambia Direct Democracy Movement- ZDDM which is one of the oldest and most exposed indigenous opposition parties in Zambia after having worked closely and at a personal level with nearly all the past and current political party leaders in the country and indeed leaders of other African countries including the Great Libyan leader Muammer Qaddafi who was assassinated by the same satanic forces now desperately trying to destroy Zambia as it did to Libya.
We wish to start with conveying greetings, our wish for your good health and long life for you and indeed all our beloved chiefs in the Eastern province that include Nkhosi ya Mankhosi Mpezeni and Gaba Undi.
As a party which had a very rare blessing of working on continental and diaspora “Save Africa” committees chaired by the late Muammer Qaddafi (MHSRIP) for 12 years we are greatly saddened that most Africa countries are caught up in the self destruction and re-colonization trap cleverly designed by the same satanic forces which captured our forefathers like animals into slavery and later colonized us.
This satanic force is using some local selfish and greedy Blacks operating as ‘running dogs” under the guise of NGOs and political parties to set Blacks working against each other as can be seen in countries like South Africa where whites are openly using some Blacks to fight the ANC which paid blood for independence.
Unfortunately the South African “Black running dogs” are now trying to export to Zambia their venom of betrayal and treachery to the African independence war vision.
One can not stop recalling what the whites used to say about us as Blacks Africans before independence when we painful watch and hear the South African so called Black opposition parties and unions insult their leaders with whites cheering them on. They don’t realize that the whites are deep down in their hearts laughing at them for being too stupid to realize that they are destroying their own future.
These Blacks don’t realize that it is very easy to destroy than to build because even an idiot can destroy but find it impossible to build as this require thinking.
It is against this background that ZDDM is prompted to write you this letter asking all the chiefs in the province to ban the United Party for National Development- UPND in the province because this party and its white sponsored friends in South Africa do not mean well for Zambia.
The UPND must definitely know who among Its members were behind the cruel attacks and burning of houses belonging to people from Eastern and Northern province after the announcement the last election results and calling themselves Mau mau now threatening to kill people from Eastern province.
The UPND cannot claim that they don’t know the criminals among its members behind this satanic crusade.
Our party is not taking the threats being made against the people from Eastern province in southern province lightly because of what happened in the very recent past.
While calling on the national security network to hunt down these criminals we want the chiefs in Kumawa to ban the UPND until the time when it will expose the members behind this evil scheme. ZDDM however will not allow the people of Eastern province to be caught up in this Satanist plot aimed at fanning chaos and bloodshed in Zambia.
ZDDM is fully aware that this is a last resort and desperate political gimmick by the people trying to divide the nation on tribal line to cause anarchy using termed called Armageddon.
We thank Nkhosi ya Mankhosi Mpezeni for his timely intervention last August when the same group attacked Easterners and Bembas in Southern province.
With this new threat we expect the Chiefs not only to ban the UPND but also to consider treating any Easterner supporting this party for monetary gain as a traitors and enemies of the people of Kumawa.
The question every Easterner should be asking themselves is how a true son of Kumawa can support a party which is campaigning to kill their own people and indeed which beat up and burn houses of their brothers and sisters in its stronghold territory.
ZDDM is also expecting the chiefs in the Kumawa to consider supporting the ZDDM agenda of Zambia adopting a new kind of Federal system which will ensure that each of the 72 tribes in the initial 72 districts govern themselves to close the door of tribalism which the Satanists are trying to use in their desperation to destroy Zambia.
Let each tribe take full responsibility of their own land and development.
This new system will give a chance to all those aspiring for political leadership like the UPND to focus on saving their tribal land being purchased and fenced off by foreigners while they waste time and energy on antagonistic agendas compromising the future of the whole nation.
Kumawa and other provinces will also be able to focus on exploiting the abundant natural resources and defending every piece of land from the satanic forces who are using the divide and rule to set Zambians on a self destruction path.
Nkhosi, ZDDM witnessed how the running dogs of the satanic forces destroyed Libya.
We can now see that the same strategy of demonizing hard working leaders like Presidents Jacob Zuma and Edgar Changwa Lungu which they used to fan hate and mistrust for leaders like Saddam Hussein and Muammer Qaddafi who they portrayed as demons and dictators is already repeating in South Africa which is also trying to export their betrayal of the African vision to Zambia.
We cannot allow this demonization trick to work against our president Edgar Lungu who is a hard working, honest and committed democrat hence our commitment to stop this evil force from repeating what it did to Iraqi and Libya in this part of Africa.
We don’t want Zambia to end up in ruin with thousand killed including the running dogs with their families as it happened in the once shinning Libya all because of a few selfish and greedy money hungry individuals belonging to political parties like UPND which are daring fate by entertaining thoughts of committing crime against humanity.
Below is the UPND’s response
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
THE POLICE MUST ARREST ZDDM LEADER, EDWIN SAKALA WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT FOR INCITING BOTH TRIBAL AND CIVIL WAR IN THE COUNTRY.
Fellow country men and women,
We would like to call on the Inspector general of police, Mr Kakoma Kanganja to with immediate effect arrest the Zambia Direct and Democracy Movement Leader, Mr Edwin Sakala over his public statement that our party members have been killing people from Eastern province but living in Southern province, and that Chiefs from Eastern province must ban our party and punish anyone from Eastern province supporting our party in that region.
Mr Sakala is clearly inciting both tribal and civil war in the country and if the police are professional, they must take action against him before citizens begin maiming each other following his statement.
We urge the Police to take action against Mr Sakala as he has clearly committed what we may call a treasonous offense and Mr Kanganja must deploy his officers just like he did to our party President, Hakainde Hichilema who did not commit any offense.
UPND is a party with a national character and currently has Members of Parliament, Mayors, Council Chairpersons and Councillors in Southern province drawn from across the country and really our party has no time for trivial issues such as what Mr Edwin Sakala is hallucinating about.
We want to challenge Mr Sakala to tell the nation which party in this country can be compared to the UPND on issues of embracing people from other regions and eventually elevating them to top leadership.
We also would like to challenge Mr Edwin Sakala to show us which other province has MPs or Mayors from other provinces other than our party, the UPND.
Mr Edwin Sakala further alleges that there is a group called Mau Mau in southern province that is killing people from Eastern province, well we once again call on the Police not to look any further but Mr Sakala because seemingly he has information if not part of the scheme aimed at victimising the people from that province.
As a responsible party, we will also be reporting Mr Edwin Sakala to the Police over his unpalatable but well calculated divisive and civil war promoting statement as he is praising the PF and its leaders over misfortunes.
If Mr Edwin Sakala is not arrested by the Police, we will once again conclude that the unprofessional arrest of our party President, Mr Hakainde Hichilema is based on political, tribal, and personal hatred ground.
Our party, will always embrace everyone including those that don’t believe in democracy because ours, is to move this country forward.
UPND Secretary General.
