Suspected Patriotic Front (PF) cadres this afternoon attempted to storm the UPND secretariat in Lusaka’s Rhodespark area in an act of retaliation following yesterday’s fracas in Matero.
Suspected UPND cadres yesterday attacked and destroyed PF offices in Matero constituency after their rally was disrupted by the police.
Quick action by the police prevented the PF cadres from storming the secretariat.
And UPND Secretary General Steven Katuka has told QTV News that police were alerted upon hearing that PF cadres were matching to the secretariat.
Mr. Katuka says this kind of barbaric behavior from the PF is unacceptable.
He has wondered how peace will be guaranteed during the campaign period if such things begin to happen before the official campaigns.
Mr. Katuka however, advised UPND youths manning the secretariat to cooperate with the police as they were there to provide security.
