UPND MUST NOT IMPORT “VIOLENT MAPATIZYA FORMULA” INTO THE COPPERBELT PROVINCE – MEDIA STATEMENT BY SUNDAY CHANDA, VICE CHAIRPERSON, PF MEDIA AND PUBLICITY
Lusaka, Zambia, 19th November 2015- The Patriotic Front (PF) wishes to dismiss as baseless accusations levelled against the PF by UPND Party Spokesperson Mr. Charles Kakoma. We also caution Mr. Kakoma and the UPND against exaggerating political dynamics because it will take 100 years for Zambians to trust Mr. Hichilema with national leadership following his direct or indirect involvement with Zambia’s notorious privatisation exercise which condemned the Copperbelt Province into a Ghost Province. Zambians can see through Mr. Hichilema’s opportunistic tendencies such as preying on challenges in the mining sector.
We wish to caution the UPND against importing their infamous and violent campaign formula known as the MAPATIZYA into places such as the Copperbelt Province. We want to warn Mr. Hakainde Hichilema that while he is surrounded by his personal body guards, he must stop using innocent and desperate UPND cadres for his human shield. He must be reminded that it is beneath a man who is aspiring to lead a great nation such as Zambia to take pride in placing innocent lives in harm’s way. PF is therefore surprised that a man who aspires to lead this great nation has sunk so low as to defy the same laws he seeks to come and protect. His defiant stance against police advice on the Copperbelt Province speaks to his levels of tolerance for lawlessness.
It is our position once more that Mr. Hichilema must be the last person to play victim because he does not even have the morality to denounce the violence perpetrated in Southern Province against other Zambians of different political belonging. The UPND of Mr. Hakainde Hichilema must be ashamed of their deafening silence when members of other political parties are violently victimised in areas such as Southern Province where their party is tribally entrenched. It is the same violent tool called MAPATIZYA which they seek to import into Copperbelt, Lusaka, Muchinga, Eastern, Northern, Luapula and Central Provinces. To this day, Mr. Hichilema does not see anything wrong when Zambia’s celebrated musician Dandy Crazy is attacked by UPND members at the instigation of their leaders in Mazabuka.
Lastly, we want to say to the Zambian people that the levels of intolerance and imbedded violence in the UPND must serve as a prelude to what life would be in Zambia under the rule of UPND! We want to assure that even under the current challenges being faced by the nation, Mr. Hichilema is Opposition leader simply by default, in the absence of credible alternatives in the Opposition. This is the more reason why he cannot call for a Convention and allow to be challenged. In conclusion, We wish to remind the UPND that they must change their intolerance strongly evident in their bases if they are to expect a warm welcome in other parts of the country.
