UPND Members meeting in the bush
UPND Members meeting in the bush

United Nation for National Development (UPND) Northern Province Chairperson Nathan Illunga has said the opposition is no longer safe in Zambia under President Edgar Lungu’s leadership.

Illunga said the church mother bodies were right when they alleged that the country has descended into full dictatorship as Zambians no longer enjoy their freedoms of assembly and association.

He revealed that UPND have so far tried to follow the law as provided by the Public Order Act by notifying the Police for them to hold mobilization meetings in the communities but the Police have always denied them the right to hold meetings.

Illunga noted that UPND have now resorted to colonial day’s tactics of holding our party mobilization meetings in the bush and people’s farms.

And he was quick to mention that UPND is glad because people following them even in the bush when they call for party mobilization meetings.

He has however noted that although people are following them in the bush, he describes the trend as inhumane treatment the PF leadership is subjecting its citizens who hold divergence views yet because Zambia belongs to everyone in the country.

“We now resorted to colonial day’s tactics of holding our party mobilization meetings in the bush and people’s farms. And he was quick to mention that UPND is glad because people following them even in the bush when they call for party mobilization meetings”

“Today, citizens are not free to even talk even in their own houses and whoever talks is arrested but the PF conniving with the Police must know that every dog has its day” Illunga said

  1. WHAT WAS THE PURPOSE FOR THE MEETING? IF THE MEETING WAS HELD TO PLAN ON HOW TO PERFORM ANOTHER “ROAD RAGE” WITH THE PRESIDENTIAL MOTORCADE,THEN BE SURE THE POLICE WILL NOT ALLOW IT.

    • Which fund raising meetings? UPND has been boasting that it is full of rich people so why don’t these so called rich people fund the party instead of stealing money from ignorant poor cadres.

    • For once Njimbu is right. UPND time you changed strategy. PF goofs almost on daily basis and you never take advantage to win voters over of how you would do running affairs of the nation better. That is why Jay Jay says UPND and it’s leadership is a waste of space and time. PF too is a lost cause

  6. People working in HH farms turns to be holding meetings? They were working for salt and a piece of meat from cattle that might have died from unknown disease. UPND members were assembled to have a feast, not a meeting.

  7. Can anyone understand a donkey? The issue is , if you go back to where we started whi created the situation that UPNDonkeys are complaining about? They have even forgotten that at one time they had a dead petitiin which they failed to support with evidence. The whole world moved on without them. Now they think that the main reason for the existence of UPNDonkey party is to release U5 from Mukobeko. What sort of opposition leader in the whole world gets himself locked up in Mukobeko for a stupio.d reason and then hopes to lead his party fron there? Doesnt he know that prison will finish him off? He has run out of ideas and now wants to try the sympathy route which even Tdump thinks is basically idio..cy.
