SUSPECTED PF Youths in Kafue yesterday morning locked Kafue Civic Centre in a bid to prevent new Kafue Town Council Secretary Isaac Mwiche Mudala from reporting for work yesterday.

A Kafue Times News which rushed to Kafue Civic Centre around 06:30hours found a handful group of suspected PF youths mobilising themselves to execute the early morning assignment.

The Youths who sung soliderity songs for former Council Secretary Aaron Kamalondo, denounced Local Government Service Commission Chairman Amos Musonda whom the accused of transferring Kamalonda because of vested interests.

The youths who seemed more organized, upon arriving at the Civic centre ordered Council Police Officers who were manning the building to immediately lock the entrance of the Civic centre and leave.

Several efforts by a few council police officers to challenge the youths failed as they were overpowered by the PF cadres.

The PF youths vowed not allow new Kafue Town Council Secretary Isaac Mwiche Mudala to enter the Civic centre building.

“We feel the transfer of Mr Kamalondo from Kafue Town Council was untimely because it came at a time he had started developing Kafue.” the PF youths said

Quick response from Anti Riot Police Officers brought the protest to a sudden end.

District Administrative Officer Josephine Phiri later met the youths in the District Conference Room where the youths aired their concerns.

Calm has since been restored at the Civic but the youths have vowed to continue with their protest until Kamalondo is brought back to Kafue Town Council.

  3. I like Dickson Jere’s write up about a meeting in the RB era where army commander asked police IG this question. “Have you failed to contain political violence perpetrated by cadres, yes or no?” I think its high time we engaged the army.

  4. This is as a result of firing officers for doing their job. The PF cadres now know that they are above the law. Every action has a reaction.

  5. Sad thing is even in churches people are resisting the transfer of priests. Civil servants and priests have no say in when or where they are being transferred. Please whoever is in charge of these hooligans educate them on operations of government. In fact when one does well in one town it’s important to transfer them so that they can also develop those areas which are lagging behind. I’m sure Mr Mudala is from Ndola…he’s a capable young man. Just give him a chance.

  6. I support the transfer of the man. Council Secretary is a public office and the man can work from anywhere. Its good riddance.

  11. Total lawlessness but not even one law breaker arrested. But let Laura miti and others peacefully demonstrate over fire tenders then they will be arrested, charged & even taken to court only to be aquitted thereby wasting taxpayers money.
