PF in Monze calls for a peaceful reception of the President as he visit the district

General News PF in Monze calls for a peaceful reception of the President as...

The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) in Monze District has warned the opposition United Party for National Development(UPND) cadres against booing and jeering President Edgar Lungu as he tours the District on an official engagement tomorrow.

District Youth Chairperson Titus Chiluba said the party would not tolerate any barbaric behavior aimed at embarrassing the Head of State who will be on official duty in Southern Province.

A few months ago some alleged unruly UPND cadres booed and jeered the head of state when he came to officially hand over housing units for men and women in uniform, an action that was widely condemned.

In a press statement made available to ZANIS today, Mr. Chiluba said just like other citizens, the UPND is expected to give the Head of State due respect especially when he is in the area to attend to matters of development.

President Lungu is expected in Monze to meet Chiefs following their call for the President’s call to declare a new District east of Monze.

The chiefs want the new district to be named after the late Freedom fighter Mainza Chona who hailed from the same area.

“As PF we want to sound a strong and timely warning to the opposition UPND to desist from any kind of barbaric behavior which they exhibited last time by booing and jeering the Head of State. The UPND must know that just like any citizen in this country, we expect them to give respect to the Head of State who is on a mission to steer development for the benefit of the people of Monze,” said Mr. Chiluba.

Mr. Chiluba however, said the UPND has already started provoking the peaceful atmosphere in Monze ahead of the President’s visit by hoisting party flags all over the town.

And in a separate interview, UPND Monze District Chairperson Michelo Kasauta has assured the PF members and President Lungu of a peaceful reception during the entire visit to the District.

Mr. Kasauta said he has engaged UPND supporters throughout the district to refrain from any activities which might undermine the Head of State.

But Mr. Kasauta who is also Bweengwa Member of Parliament advised the PF in the District to desist from threatening the opposition as the President is coming for national duties and not political activities.

  1. Trump was booed today. Trump has proved to be a useless president. Now Lungu is even below par. He should be booed everywhere, not just in southern tribal province

  2. Our PF brothers in Monze are very humble and cordial. This is not even a question of requesting peace. It is the president of this country for christ’s sake! You are expected to respect the office of the president whether you like it or not . Just because you support upnd does not mean that you are not led by ECL. If you think you have grown too big for your boots to be ruled by the president then please leave this country. I will gladly escort you out to the border! IF ANYONE BOOS PLEASE I HAVE GIVEN YOU AUTHORITY TO GIVE THEM DIRTY SLAPS. I will take the blame and any legal repecursions of this

  4. KZ, AND YOUR PF SURELY IF YOU DO NOT DOUBT GOD BEING PRESENT, YOU MUST TAME YOURSELF AND YOUR CADRES. LUNGU IS A TEASER AND HE IS MORE THAN NEBUCHADNESER IN HIS LEADERSHIP. PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO MERCY URGENTS OF THE DEVIL YOU ARE.

  5. When HH goes to PF strongholds he is not booed but when the president goes to Hh strong holds he is booed and insulted. What is the meaning of this? That’s why I can not vote for intolerant UPND with its insulting president HH. My vote is now for PF I have changed my mind having seen how stupidity UPND is.
