UPND Youths warn PF members against attacking president Hichilema

Feature Politics UPND Youths warn PF members against attacking president Hichilema

UPND Lusaka Province Youth Chairperson Anderson Banda has urged some Patriotic Front members to stop dragging the name of President Hakainde Hichilema into disrepute.

Mr. Banda said that it is shocking that some PF leaders are allegedly maligning President Hakainde Hichilema and the Presidency whenever they are summoned by law enforcement officers.

He has advised PF Information and Publicity Secretary Raphael Nakachinda and Former Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo to instead focus on clearing their names.

Mr. Banda told Journalists at a Media briefing in Lusaka that the UPND in Lusaka will not allow Mr. Nakachinda and Mr. Lusambo to disrespect the President from his agenda to develop the nation with their cheap politicking.

He said the UPND government has brought normalcy and independence to all institutions of governance and law enforcement agencies.
Mr. Banda said President Hichilema will not be diverted from bettering the lives of Zambians.

He has advised Mr. Lusambo and Mr. Nakachinda to instead be grateful that the law enforcement agencies are giving them an opportunity to clear their names from the various allegations.

Meanwhile, Mr. Banda said the opposition political parties must realize that politics of character assassinations, insults and mudslinging are outdated.

AND UPND member Chilekwa Munkonge has expressed disappointment with the lack of respect for the Presidency being exhibited by some opposition politicians.

Mr. Munkonge said that much as democracy provides for freedom of expression, the use of strong language against President Hichilema is uncalled for.

He said that politicians being summoned by law enforcement agencies for investigations should not bring in the name of the President because they are being summoned for their own deeds.

  3. The UPND terrorist wing should realise that it is not the arbiter in determining what constitutes defamation of the president. The interpretation of the archaic presidential defamation law is done by the courts. Stop Politicking and threatening people everyday . We are fatigued!!!

    • Don’t be misled, HH has 5 years. At the end of his five years, Mealie meal could be K1, Why are you holding somebody accountable before his time. As PF you promised more money in our pockets and at the end of ten years, there was zero, so don’t act clever here

  5. The PF want HH’s promises and yet for them for ten years they worsened a decent economy they inherited from MMD. And Anderson Banda is right , the head of state must be respected, but if HH starts behaving like the rejected ubomba mwibala alya mwibala regime, we should with draw that respect, for now HH is on course and do a wonderful job

  6. “Mr. Munkonge said that much as democracy provides for freedom of expression, the use of strong language against President Hichilema is uncalled for.” Now we have a small god who is always right and cannot be touched. This god can even block the motor cade of other presidents and must be let scotch free. Not sure the direction wevare going to.

  7. He said the UPND government has brought normalcy and independence to all institutions of governance and law enforcement agencies.
    Mr. Banda said President Hichilema will not be diverted from bettering the lives of Zambians. WHICH NORMALCY? CADRES ORDERING ARRESTS OF OPPONENTS IS NORMALCY? These guys have a strange sense humour. I can see Banda’s life has improved tremendously.

  8. surely mwebantu, is infrastructure development is bringing the economy down.PF came up the idea of generating financial resources internally by adding toll gate fees to roads built. They claimed that they found empty coffers but they are able to carry on activities such errands outside the country, paying the civil servants etc.. Indeed what normalcy. Persecuting people who are giving free advice?
