PF REPORTS UPND TO POLICE OVER DEATH THREATS
Friday 23rd September, 2022
We have noted with serious concerns numerous videos and audios of UPND cadres circulating online threatening to KILL or INJURE any Zambian who criticises President Hakainde Hichilema and his Administration.
What is shocking is that these very eminent threats of violence by the UPND cadres against innocent citizens are going unabated; neither the Police nor the UPND leadership have come forward to condemn and put a stop to this barbaric behaviour being exhibited by the UPND cadres.
I wish to inform the nation that the Patriotic Front has today formally reported this matter to the Inspector General of Police. Threatening violence is a serious crime punishable by law. It is our hope that the police will act accordingly and swiftly bring the purveyors of violence to book.
Zambia is a democracy and not a dictatorship. Every Zambian has the constitutional right to criticise and hold their elected leaders accountable without any fear of retribution.
The UPND government must learn to accept criticism and tolerate divergent views; we can’t all be praise singers. This is totally unacceptable!
I urge my fellow Zambians to remain resolute and not to give in to the UPND’s cowardly and savage acts of intimidation.m and violence.
Zambia does not belong to UPND, it belongs to every Zambian thus we should not allow UPND to turn this country into a multi-party dictatorship.
I thank you.
