PF accuse UPND of trying to force a Government of National Unity by causing Violence

Feature Politics PF accuse UPND of trying to force a Government of National Unity...

The Patriotic Front has charged that the opposition United Party of National Development (UPND) has resorted to political violence in order to push for a government of national unity after the August polls.

PF Media Director Antonio Mwanza said that it is unfortunate that the opposition UPND has decided to cause anarchy in the country as a way of preparing a stage to push for a government of national unity after the August polls.

Speaking at a media briefing in Lusaka today, Mr Mwanza stated that UPND are in a panic mode after realizing that the PF has gained ground into their strongholds such as Western and North Western provinces.

“And what UPND is doing now is to go on a path of violence to disrupt the election process, to delegitimize the election outcome and strategically they have been attacking the judiciary, the electoral Commission of Zambia, attacking the police; denouncing these fundamentals of our democracy with a view of making the outcome of the 2021 general elections look illegitimate, ” Mr. Mwanza said.

The PF Media Director has since challenged Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland and the church to give their stance on the current status of violence being perpetrated by the UPND.

The PF Media Director stated that it is regrettable that stakeholders such as the Commonwealth and the Church have remained mute on the continued violence being witnessed in some parts of the country.

Mr. Mwanza has since challenged the commonwealth and the church to tell Zambians what role they are playing in ensuring that the peace pledge that was recently signed at Mulungushi International Conference Centre is upheld by all political parties.

He has further appealed to the police to be on the lookout in order to thwart any plans of violence by the UPND.

Meanwhile, PF campaign Manager for Lusaka Mumbi Phiri has said that she is a very sad person today given the violence being perpetrated by the UPND, challenging the police Inspector General Kakoma Kanganja to arrest perpetrators.

Speaking at today’s PF virtual rally at Mulungushi International Conference Centre, Mrs Phiri said that the late Presidents, Levy Patrick Mwanawasa and Michael Chilufya Sata, reconciled their differences and she is scared of what would happen if HH is brought into government.

Mrs Phiri said in 2008, when PF saw violence on the Copperbelt, following Sata’s election loss, Sata went on ZNBC to stop the violence, adding that violence can be stopped by the opposition.

Mrs Phiri said that Mr Sata did not ask the Church to reconcile with Levy at State House, before asking: “Do you know why HH fails to recognise President Lungu as President?”

Mrs Phiri has challenged the Inspector General of police to arrest those perpetrating violence in Sioma and elsewhere in the same vein PF stalwarts are being arrested – an apparent inference to DEC’s nabbing of America One, who is called Innocent Kalimanshi.

  2. Why would UPND want that when they are winning? Also, They know such a STUPID move would mean the end of their party and back to the KK days. Stop BUHATA and get out and campaign like others.

  3. A GNU would benefit more the PF than the UPND. It would give them chance to launder their mistakes and their sins. It makes no sense for Upnd to want a GNU.

Rabies affect the central nervous system of the host cause a range of debilitating symptoms — including states of anxiety and confusion, partial paralysis, agitation, hallucinations, and, in its final phases, a symptom called “hydrophobia,” or a fear of water. Could include feat of electons.

  8. The Zambian constitution does not allow government of national unity or a coalition. Only one party at a time to rule. Unless the rule is seriously bended or amended.

  9. These guys have nothing to offer just full of red herrings…they can not articulate anything!!

  10. Antonio Mwanza is daydreaming if the Crowds we saw in Solwezi today are anything to to go by. Solwezi, Chongwe, Kanyama, Kafue etc have just confirmed that Macmillan’s wind of Change is blowing across Zambia. Zambians are Hungry and suffering and are clamouring for a Change of Govt on August 12. Even in PF’s Strongholds People are chanting :”we want change…we want Change”. HH and UPND Alliance are the Hope and Help that Zambians are looking to. HH and UPND Alliance will bring Peace,Stability and Progress to Zambia. The writing is on the wall.

  12. These are desperate times for Antonio Mwanza and PF. He is thinking of PF and UPND Alliance forming a GNU. Our Republican Constitution doesn’t provide for GNU and besides HH and UPND Alliance will win the 2021 Elections outright. ECL and PF better start packing becoz on August 12 ECL kuyabele. HH aka Bally will fix it.

  14. Running out of what to say. National Unity? Really?
    And Mumbi Phiri says the opposition has the power to stop violence?

  15. PF is desperate and is losing Power in August 2021. PF is now dreaming of a GNU but it won’t come becoz HH and UPND Alliance will win with a Landslide. Macmillan’s wind of Change is blowing across Zambia. HH and UPND Alliance will form the Govt after August 12. The writing is on the wall.

  16. The once Mighty PF is now at the receiving end and testing its own medicine and crying foul. The entire ONCE MIGHTY PF is smelling defeat and its operatives coming up with all sorts of allegations. PF members don’t deny the fact that defeat is closing in on you and its better you go and rest in peace.

  17. Antonio Mwanza can’t imagine losing a Monthly Salary of K60000 ($3000) per Month,a Car and Housing Allowances. The Salary and Perks if ECL loses Power. PF Cadres including Antonio Mwanza will financially suffer should HH and UPND Alliance forms the New Govt post August 12. The writing is on the wall.

  20. Typical PF government behaviour: Antonio Mwanza can only criticize the opposition, but just as that horrible thieving president Edgar China Lungu he never says anything about what he is going to do. And how BAD the last six years have been: Kwacha down from 4.5 to the dollar now 23, food prices multiplied by 5, coffers empty etc.
