It is very disheartening to see how PF cadres are busy assaulting and abusing innocent people at munyaule market which is near Lumumba bus station. Most of you who have used Lumumuba road, you will agree with me that, to your left before approaching city market, there is a very dirty and tattered flag hanging written PF and just there, that is where the office for these miscreants are.

Let me now delve into the matter which has propelled me to write this article. Sometime in February, my friend was clobbered and threatened heavenly by the same PF considering the fact that he stood next to the Pf-office while answering the phone and this made them to be very uncomfortable as they thought he was trying to gather information. Initially, after the incident was narrated to me, i took keen interest in carrying an empirical research where i started following the matter as a social worker and eventually discovered that there was more to that than just the story i heard.

I carried a one to one interview with the traders and the people around the same place where i received a lot of complaints and concluded therefore that these people have turned the place into what we call a brutality dungeon.

Further to that, these people go round and collect money, close shops for traders and beat innocent people for no apparent reasons. When i witnessed that, i nearing rushed to the police but i was warned and cautioned that reporting this matter to the police is like taking the one sending them to police. But the question is who is this person sending these people as they are in PF regalia and have power to do anything within the limit of what they can afford? The other question is where do we go to see to it that this vice is curbed, as these people seem to have all the protection.
