Opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) says it is hypocritical for the PF to continue to hoodwink citizens that they mean well for the country when criminality is right in their DNA.

Commenting on this morning’s incident where suspected PF cadres stormed Power FM studio in Kabwe and violently cut short a radio programme NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili, UPND secretary general Steven Katuka described the incident as unfortunate.

In a press statement, Katuka said: “We find the attack on NDC leader Dr Chishimba Kambwili very unfortunate. Consequently, the attack is coming from a party which is claiming to run a National Dialogue Forum of patriotic citizens.”

“The constitution must protect all citizens regardless of their political affiliation. Sadly, for our colleagues in the PF, violence is their means of freedom of expression.”

Katuka also claimed that there is no iota of morality under President Edgar Lungu’s leadership.

“Everything goes, starting from corruption, thuggery behavior, insults, and mocking the Church. PF under Lungu is allergic to criticism. The PF thugs who attacked Dr Kambwili are as dirty minded as their party leadership,” he continued in a statement.

“We cannot allow this criminality to continue as if the country is on autopilot. Where is the morality in the PF if the same people who are condemning others for staying away from the NDF, are going against the very spirit of patriotism that they are preaching about. It is such level of hypocrisy that made the UPND to stay away from the NDF.”

Katuka’s comment comes in the wake of the attacks on Power FM Radio in Kabwe by Suspected PF cadres when the radio station hosted Kambwili.
