Vice President Inonge Wina has cautioned Patriotic Front (PF) members against harassing opposition Members of Parliament attending the launch of government projects.

Mrs. Wina said that PF members should embrace opposition MPs in their constituencies where they lost and not block them from attending government projects.

She is saddened that UPND Luampa MP Makozo Chikote was harassed by some overzealous youths outside the Luampa District Commissioner’s office while she held a meeting with Chiefs.

Mrs. Wina has promised to sternly discipline the youths because their actions prevented Mr. Chikote from attending the commissioning of Luampa substation and the grid extension line where he was scheduled to speak.

She said that government was keen on working with the opposition MPs in taking development to their areas.

And Vice President, Inonge Wina has called for productive usage of electricity in Luampa district of Western province following its connection to the national grid.

The Vice President was speaking in Western province, when she commissioned the Luampa electricity supply substation and 22-kilometer grid extension line.

And Minister of Energy, David Mabumba said Luampa substation and 22 kilometers grid lines provides social justice to all and has appealed to Luampa business community to invest in Luampa.

And Western Province Minister, Nathaniel Mubukwanu said the connection of Luampa to the national grid is a sign of government’s commitment not to leave anyone behind in the development agenda.

Meanwhile, REA Chief Executive Officer, Geoffrey Musonda has thanked government for its continued funding of projects to live up to the authority’s mandate.

    • If we heard this kind of sensible advise from yours truly Vodiga Rungu to PF cadres to practice some restraint, things would be better.
      Vodiga Rungu’s silence equates to giving consent to the harassment or beating of any non-PF members at functions that clearly involve ALL Zambians.

      I am waiting for some !mbecile in PF to say Wina should be expelled from the party for making this statement.

    • The issue starts when you invite a hoard of your caders to such an official event that concerns all our monies that we sacrifice in terms of taxes to pay. So it is not an issue of telling the cadres to allow opposition members to attend such functions but rather the cadres not to attend at such officiates. In as much as her warning is welcome she is not solving the problem. This should not be specific to opposition strongholds but a recognition that any leader voted for should be respected and be allowed to carry out his/her functions.

    • @Nubian naimwe, if you need a vice president, then take Edgar, then Inonge can officially be president.
      Who in PF you can give such a post? Name just 1.

    • There is a time for cadres to be invited to come and dance and time for serious government official business, pf can’t differentiate the two, they are still entangled in the unip mentality.

    • Does anyone need further justification as to why UPND boycotts state function. Empty words from Mrs. Wina. PF cadres have audacity to harass an opposition MP in front of the VP and still no arrests. Not long ago the PF cadres undressed and humiliated a female UPND member in front of Mrs Wina and to date, no arrests!

  1. The cadres observe violence perpetrated by Cabinet and Provincial Ministers. They cannot stop harrassing people until they see that the leader’s have stopped. But if the Secretary General can say with impunity that a former Minister will be beaten every time he meets the PF members then the followers will never stop their violent ways. They feel encouraged to do it.

  2. These basturd cadres of PF are embarrassing our leadership.
    I wasn’t there to witness but this nonsense can easily propel the Supreme Leader Hayatolla Hakainde to the top in 2021.
    PF we don’t want to lose ground to Mr Paradise or Sinkamba. Tame these mutha fkkers

  3. ONLY WHEN JONA POMBE, & (CHIMP)YONGO ISSUE A JOINT PUBLIC STATEMENT DENOUNCING THUGGERY VIOLENCE, & GO ON & ARREST THEIR VIOLENT STORM TROOPERS, INCLUDING GENDER VIOLENT KAIZER, WILL I BELIEVE, otherwise this is just lip service CHAPWA!!!
    In the meantime P.F. “Are Still Investigating” Kaizer’s assault on a Female Police officer, & his other violent misdemenours, & Chakolwa is NDWIII.

  4. Thanks for the attempt madam Wina, you are a lone voice of reason in the party. But sorry nothing can change, balikowela, and remember they have been wrongly tutored

  5. Mama wina you are in a wrong party…Mumbi Phiri/Kamba will tell you that ‘ Our carders were just provoked’ in PF violence is their main tool to stay in power madam.

  6. The cadres mentioned in another media, include a diplomat and some ministers, that is where the beginning meets the end.

  7. Agony for others is to see that to be anybody in government or quasi-government unit, your name must be Mulenga, Kampamba, Mwila, Chileshe, Musonda, etc, etc & you want others to think there is nothing wrong???!!!!???

  8. THE PROBLEM WE HAVE IN ZAMBIA IS THAT PF CADRES ARE SENT TO DO SUCH EVIL BRUTALLITY BY THIER LEADERS WHO ARE ILL WITH LEADERSHIP. THEY THINK ALL ZAMBIANS MUST BE PF AND THAT SHALL NEVER HAPPEN. NOTE THAT ONE DAY ALL SHALL COME TO PASS. I MISS FTJ CHILUBA AND MWANAWASA WHO KNEW HOW TO TREAT THE CADRES. THINGS STARTED BAD WITH PF WHEN IT WAS FORMED.

  9. HH wanted to be V/president to ECL, (power sharing) but you can not compare him with the intelligent , proactive Inonge Mutukwa Wins! She’s doing very fine!
