Charles Milupi during the UPND press briefing

The opposition Alliance has blamed the Patriotic Front and Government for the political violence which characterised the February 12th Sesheke Parliamentary by election which was won by the UPND.

Alliance Chairperson Charles Milupi says in each of the cases in which electoral violence was reported in the recent by-elections, it was between PF youths imported from Lusaka and the local ordinary citizens in a given area where the by-election was taking place.

Mr. Milupi says preliminary results of an investigation done by the Alliance have revealed that the PF party and its government have assembled a group of youths whose sole purpose is to perpetuate political violence on the opposition.

He said this group of youths which for current purposes they have decided to refer to as a PF militia, is mainly stationed at inter-city bus terminus in Lusaka, and Kanyama Township whose members include Francis Muchemwa, Mpange Kachingwe, Abel Mwale and Eddie Gowa who is a Malawian citizen that was imported to Zambia for the sole purpose of executing political violence.

Mr. Milupi said the individuals that form the PF militia are close acquaintances of the Republican President, Minister of Home Affairs Stephen Kampyongo, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila, Special Assistant to the President for Politics Kaizer Zulu, Presidential spokesperson Amos Chanda and Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja.

He said these ruling party militia are well funded by the PF using taxpayers money saying apart from regular one-off payments, they are on the payroll of both the Lusaka City Council and Zesco despite the fact that they do not do any work for these institutions, and the only work that they do is to maim and kill political opponents.

And Mr. Milupi said an estimated 1,000 rounds of ammunition were fired by Police in Maondo Ward against the unarmed and defenceless UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema and his supporters in their quest to assassinate them.

He said Mr. Hichilema and his entourage had to spend more than 8 hours holed up in the bush waiting for nightfall, before they finally made their way back to the village, at which time the state house police officers had left the scene after tear-gassing and vandalizing the entire Maondo village.

Mr. Milupi said even after the UPND President and his entourage had dashed into the nearby bush and abandoned their vehicles at the village, the state house police officers continued to pursue them further into the bush, were they continued to fire their automatic weapons.

He said given the circumstances of what happened in Maondo village on that fateful Friday, 8th February 2019, the Alliance is left with no option but to conclude that the operation that was conducted by state house police was aimed at assassinating the Mr. Hichilema with the aim of eliminating him from the 2021 presidential race.

Mr. Milupi said the Alliance will to this effect report specific individuals to the international criminal court in the Hague, for orchestrating, perpetrating, facilitating, funding and executing a well planned wave of political violence across the country, which violence risks the peace and security of this nation.

He named the individuals to be reported to the Hague as President Edgar Lungu, Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila, Special Assistant to the President for Politics Kaizer Zulu, Presidential spokesperson Amos Chanda, Francis Muchemwa also known as America 2, a PF cadre, Mpange Kachingwe, a PF cadre, Abel Mwale, a PF cadre and Eddie Gowa also a PF cadre.

Mr. Milupi said the opposition Alliance has complete trust in the competence, independence and integrity of the international criminal court and their prosecutors and believe that we if the above listed individuals are not guilty of the crimes that they have accused them of, they shall be acquitted accordingly by the international criminal court in the Hague.

He added that the above list may be increased depending on additional evidence that may come into the Alliance’s possession in due course.

The PF are yet to comment on the matter.

    • And Mr. Milupi said an estimated 1,000 rounds of ammunition were fired by Police in Maondo Ward against the unarmed and defenceless UPND Leader Hakainde Hichilema and his supporters in their quest to assassinate them.

      How possible is that? Out of 1000 rounds of ammunition fired the police missed people, no one was shot or injured? Mulebepako ba ya upnd aba sumina fyonse nefyabufi as long as its coming from the small god.

  2. Ba UPND just keep quiet if you don’t know how the ICC operates, you have no tangible evidence to show this court, how many people were killed in sesheke? please don’t embarrass us as a country ,take your desperation for power to yourselves. It is very easy for the state to kill your HH if it so wishes but not in the sesheke style. So ba UPND your thinking that the ICC is going to entertain your case is very warped. If the ICC can acquit former Gabonese president for post election violence in which over 3000 people died the sesheke violence is very insignificant to ICC. The other thing ba UPND tell your small god HH to address ecl as president lungu and not Mr. lungu, this simply shows HH is bitter, arrogant, disrespectful to the president.

  3. 1000 rounds were fire. They missed target

    On other hand one lightening was fired and a death was reported.

    Bees were unleashed and hit the target.

  4. Police should arrest people that make such alarmist statements without formally tabulating allegations to relevant parties. This is inflammatory.

  6. Mr. Milupi are you sure 1000 rounds were fired and no one was killed! Where are the empty cartridges you collected. That’s now waffling, taking people to ICC without proper evidence muzaonekela baba. If you have got nothing to tell the people of Great Zambia better keep quiet. Just tell us what your so called Alliance(UPND) will do if voted into highest office, that’s what people are interested in.

  7. You may laugh and joke about it, but being reported to the International Criminal Court is no laughing matter. I certainly would not want to be on that list! Those on that list must indeed be worried. They may appear to be untouchable now, but history has shown that the end is always terrible for those accused of atrocities.
