Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila has distanced the ruling Party from a video circulating on Social Media where people unknown to the Party are heard threatening the life of former Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili and issuing unprintables against his mother.
Mr. Mwila says the Party finds the video to be highly offensive to its values and that the content thereof borders on nothing else but criminality.
Mr. Mwila has since calles on the Zambia Police to immediately investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book.
The Secretary General has further reminded the Party members at large that President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has constantly called for non-violence in the Party and no such criminality would be tolerated.
He said the PF believes that while they may hold differences with their opponents, they do not become their sworn enemies to the point of shedding blood or wishing for one’s cessation of life.
The National Democratic Congress yesterday said it will report to the Police, Patriotic Front cadres insulting and threatening violence against its consultant Chishimba Kambwili in a video that has gone viral on Social Media.
Party Vice President Joseph Akafumba said the NDC take exceptional interest in the video because the life of Mr. Kambwili is being threatened.
Mr. Akafumba said in a statement that letters to the Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja and Copperbelt Police Commissioner Charity Katanga have been written and will be delivered Monday morning.
Alleged PF cadres are seen in the video threatening violence and insulting Mr. Kambwili.
