He urged all political parties in the country to fight each other through party ideologies and not violence.
And PF North-Western Provincial Youth Vice Chairperson Herod Zholomi has described the move by UPND members to take part in the commemoration of this year’s youth day as progressive.

He encouraged the UPND members in the district to ensure that they participate in all future events.
