Patriotic Front Deputy Media Director Antonio Mwanza says political violence works against the values of Zambia and the Patriotic front (PF) party because citizens in the country expect the ruling party to be a shining example.

Speaking during the discussion forum organized by Diamond TV, Mr Mwanza said President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has demonstrated that he is a leader that wants to unite all Zambians, adding that this is the more reason the motto of the party manifesto and constitution is ‘One Zambia One Nation’.

“That is the motto President Lungu and the entire Patriotic Front have been pushing,” he said.

“As a party we strongly believe that violence works against our values as Zambians and we also strongly believe that that violence works against the Patriotic front (PF) party, because citizens in the country expect the party to be a shining example, this is the more reason we have made progressive steps to ensure that campaigns ahead of August 12 are violent free,”.

Mr Mwanza noted that the Head of State has given very clear instructions to all members of the party and the general citizenry that the police will do their work by ensuring that people that violate others and those that engage in political violence are brought to book, and the party has never shielded any member accused of violence.

“We have cases of people serving prison sentences for political violence, because the party does not tolerate, shield or protect anyone that engage in the vice,” Mr Mwanza explained.

He further stated that his Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has taken a step to reconcile politicians and all Zambians, and this is the reason why he has declared 18th October, every year as a day of National prayers and reconciliation.

“This is to remind everyone that we are Zambians first, before belonging to any political party, either, PF, NDC or any other political party in the country, and that when wrong each other we can still come together as one Zambia one Nation,” he said.

Mr Mwanza added that the other step the Head of state has taken is to create the Ministry of Religious Affairs and National Guidance, particularly to remind every Zambian about the National Values that include Peace, Love, Patriotism, Kindness and accountability towards each other.

“I want to assure the Zambian people on behalf of the President that we are committed to making sure that we have a free and fair election and am very happy that even the European Union ( EU) has endorsed the stance of the President to his commitment to have a free and fair election.

  1. I admire presidents who are not afraid of meeting those who disagree with them, presidents who can meet even their harshest critics. Those are the leaders who hv changed the world.

  2. PEACEFUL PF ???????????
    One police officer has been seriously injured while a Police motor vehicle has been smashed during the confusion which occured today at the Patriotic Front Secretariat in Lusaka.

    This occured when police officers responded to a report that some Patriotic Front caders had descended on Innocent Kalimanshi who had gone to the secretariat where the party had a political activity.

    • Does it mean police had wrong intel? Why did they find themselves blocking a peaceful UPND function, who sent them to a wrong address so that they can have a field day?

  3. What they won’t tell you on LT
    Inonge Wina booed in Eastern province
    And that is how Inonge Wina and her PF bags of money left after being rejected and booed by the entire community.

  5. Inonge Wina booed or not: she SHOULD be booed, being part of this band of thieves called PF! And the only thing Lungu has united is that group of criminal PF cadres, stealing everything in sight. Lungu is responsible for the economy being in tatters, the Kwacha being devalued from four to the dollar to 22 to the dollar! That’s an achievement if it wasn’t so shocking!

    Ive been told that the site i was told has taken it down so maybe your question is relevant
    Where ?????????
    In any event I do believe dishing out funds in that nayure should be BOODED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. Yes, major upheaval at PF secretariat, with police injury etc. But NO media is reporting about it! No ZNBC, no LT, no nothing!

  9. Totally agree with my colleague. Our party is the most diverse, in terms of tribe, race, and social backgrounds. However, what is disappointing is how tribal the upnd is. They even said that only a Tonga can rule upnd. Today we are seeing that

  10. Look at this flea Mwanza…the boy has no integrity or shame…this is the boy who used to ridicule Lazy Lungu to he is the Messiah…when you stand for nothing you fall for anything.

  11. Tarino you call for people to ignore me, and yet the opposite happens. Go through all the historic articles here and you will see that all my posts attract more reactions and responses than your predictable tribal comments. You look pathetic because deep down even you know that your fellow Tonga boy will never rule this country.

  12. BaLusaka Times you have chosen to go on leave while PF cadres launch their 2021 lynching adventure – turning on each other, burning opposition campaign material …
    Raise to the occasion, you will have no where to run to.

  13. You should try your best not to take ANYTHING trolls say seriously. NO matter how POORLY they behave, remember these people spend countless UNPRODUCTIVE hours trying to make people mad. They’re not WORTH your time of day.
