PF says it will not rest until justice prevails in the murder of its two members by suspected UPND cadres

Headlines PF says it will not rest until justice prevails in the...

President Edgar Lungu has charged that the Patriotic Front will not rest until justice prevails in the murder of its two members by suspected UPND cadres in Kanyama.

Speaking at the burial ceremony of the two slain members at Leopard’s Hill Memorial park through party Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila, President Lungu said the PF is saddened by the gruesome murder of its members by the opposition UPND.

President Lungu said it is unfortunate that the UPND has resorted to violence after realizing that they don’t have the numbers to defeat the PF in next week’s Presidential and general elections.

He stated that the UPND has recruited criminals and ex-convicts to cause mayhem in the country ahead of the August 12 polls.

The Head of State has since assured the family members that the PF will ensure that the culprits in the murder of Davies and Gift are brought to book.

And President Lungu has stressed that elections are won through the ballot and not by killing innocent people.

Meanwhile, PF Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila has directed Lusaka Province Chairman Kennedy Kamba to meet the bereaved families and see how the party will assist them.

Hon Mwila stated the PF will assist the two families because they were committed and royal members of the party who were murdered on duty.

Davies Kabunda and Gift Kasongo met their fate on Friday after UPND cadres attacked the PF campaign center in the Kanyama constituency.

Davies has left behind a child and a wife while Gift is survived by six children and a wife.

Scores of PF members and residents who were led by party Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila turned up at the Leopard’s Hill Memorial park to pay their last respect to Davies and Gift.

Others who attended the burial ceremony are Kanyama PF Parliamentary candidate Elizabeth Phiri, former Chawama MP Lawrence Sichalwe, PF Lusaka Province Chairman Kennedy Kamba, National Revolution Party President Cosmo Mumba and other PF officials.

  1. MYSRIP Davies and Gift .
    Did have to lose two lives for politicians to realize how Zambia has become divided?
    Its NOT time for BLAMING UPND, it’s both PF & UPND, Stop this animal you have bread called “CA.DERISM”, that is the root cause. Pointing fingers is NOT root cause and is not a solution. DONT BE focussed on REVENGE, FOCUS on how to eradicate this issue NOW and moving forward.

  8. 9 days to go and HH will become Zambia’s 7th Republican President. We will do away with all this nonsense and all these PF morons for life and then prosecute them one by one. We will not REST until Justice prevails even after winning the elections. We the Zambian people through the UPND alliance have spoken. Wina Azalila…!

  9. Hope the killers are found and the law takes its course. However going by utterances by the PF it’s like the issue is already concluded and what is needed is for the police or whoever is investigating the murders to “FIND” the culprits by giving them faces. Hope the bereaved families find solace in God!

  10. Bambi ba lalila ichalo, ifwe tulelila kuya ku state house. These two political parties will battle it out until they realise that we the people have had enough and we can put a stop to this by voting in another party other than these two. Zambia people need to realise that they have the power to put an end to this nonsense.

  11. Every loss of life matters, including these two that died and were being buried. But it is despicable that the same leader has never stated that he won’t rest until justice prevails for the numerous UPND supporters that have been murdered over the years by known PF thugs. It is unfortunate, but perhaps even macabre to state, that the PF is using this as a desperate ‘campaign’ event – as well as a justification to prevent the UPND from campaigning freely as has been witnessed with the constant harassment and blocking of HH’s movements. The Police have simply been instructed ‘to stop this man’, but the rank and file are at a loss as to why and don’t even know what to do next after stopping him. Just used as tools and appendages of a thuggish party.

  12. Victims of the internal PF struggles between the Kalimashi group and other PF commanders.
    They now want to blame the deaths on opposition UPND.
    These tricks wont take ECL and PF anywhere.
    LAST KICKS OF A DYING HORSE

  13. @KAIZERZULU – “I HAVE SAID THAT IF ANYMORE PF MEMBER IS KILLED BY PF ” Y OU HAVE ADMITTED THAT THEY WERE KILLED BY THE PF. – THIS REPORT BY YOURSELF IS CURRENTLY BEING TAKEN TO POLICE COMMISSIONER OBVIOUSLY IF YOU KNOW THAT PF KILLED THEM YOU KNOW WHICH CADRES DID IT. THEN YOU ARE THREATNING A PERSON WITH DEATH BY SAYING ” HH DAYS ARE NUMBERED !” HOPEFULLY YOU WILL BE PROSECUTED FOR WITHHOLDING INFORMATION ON WHO FROM PF KILLED THESE 2 YOUNG MEN AND THREATNING TO CAUSE HARM TO SOMEONE !!

  14. I think they should send these so called commanders and fimofimo to Mozambique to help with the war there if they want to prove themselves on the battlefield. Peace is a beautiful thing because you always have somewhere to go back to. Arrest the troublemakers and send them to Mozambique or mogadishu where their services will be greatly appreciated.

  15. Koma iyi yeve ni dabwisa. This is not a political matter. It is a murder case. We shouldn’t be looking at party culpability but individual murder actions. Let the law take over here before we start twisting and contorting a straight forward murder case. Muzamvela kuti uje ndiye suspect koma sanaliko. We do need a change.

  16. NOW THAT THEY ARE AT THE RECEIVING END DUE TO THEIR FAST FADING POPULARITY AND GRIP ON POWER THEY ARE CRYING FOUL. WHEN NELSIN PHIRI GUNNED DOWN A STATE PROSECUTOR AND UPND MEMBER AROUND CABINET OFFICE LAST DECEMBER THERE WAS NO STRONG COMMITMENT TO ENSURE THAT THOSE RESPONSIBLE WERE ARRESTED AND CHARGED. INSTEAD A YUNG CONSTABLE WAS SACRIFICED TO ALTER BY THE POWERS BE. WHEN A LIFE IS LOST IT DOES NOT MATTER WHICH POLITICAL PARTY IT ONE BELONGS TO BUT ITS LOSS OF A LIFE OF A ZAMBIAN CITIZEN. IF THE ONCE MIGHTY PF HAD PROVIDED GOOD LEADERSHIP AND MANAGED THE SOCIALECONOMIC AFFAIRS YOUTHS WOULD NOT BE KILLING EACH OTHER OVER FOOD OR SMALL AMOUNTS OF MONEY BUT WOULD EGANGE THEMSELVES TO MORE PRODUCTIVE ACTIVIES. KANYAMA COMPOUND IS ONE AREA IN LUSAKA WHERE THERE IS A LOT LAWLESSNESS…

  17. And NOBODY in the PF is remembering the two innocent citizens who were SHOT and KILLED three months ago by the PF government. The two police officers guilty of THAT MURDER are FREE and have NEVER BEEN CHARGED. Let’s start with THIS one then.

  18. Garry Nkombo and Mweetwa didn’t go to bury the one they claimed is their member? They told us one of the dead is their member! Shame on them! That’s the problem with Tongas, Ubufi too much! They are all crooks! Ukwiba, ubufi that is their trade mark! Upnd party is a party of criminals starting from their leader who stole privitization money, and today claims to be very rich because of public money he stole! It will vanish into thin air one day! The people he deprived of that money won’t rest in their graves until he goes through the same pain they went through!

  19. President ECL so many innocent Zambians have been maimed, murdered, shot at, illegally detained and injured under your corrupt watch. Just allow HH free and fair elections. And you will be toast.
