Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has warned United Party for National Development (UPND) Lusaka Province chairperson Obvious Mwaliteta against scheming violence by giving taser guns and other offensive weapons to their party cadres.

Speaking in Lusaka Wednesday, Kampyongo cited Mwaliteta along with the opposition political party’s National Youth Chairman Likando Mufalali and his deputy Gilbert Liswaniso as being the forerunners in the schemes and ploy.

“It is very sad that instead of empowering the youths with life sustaining initiatives and ideas, my colleagues seem to have opted to empower young people with offensive weapons that are only going to cause more harm than good.”

He says the Zambia Police have done their home work and have already zoned themselves in readiness for the tightly contested Mayoral By elections taking place in Lusaka, Chilanga and other parts of the country were new districts were recently created.

“We are ready and we certainly are not going to be kind to perpetrators and would be perpetrators of political violence because ours is to ensure that there is law and order during the electoral process so that our people can vote freely and fairly with a sound mind devoid of intimidation,” stated the minister.

And Kampyongo says the trio and their collaborator should stop distributing offensive weapons to their cadres or risk being arrested and prosecuted as it is illegal for anyone to posses machinery that is only meant for law enforcement agencies and security wings.

The Minister has further appealed to all participating political parties to adhere to the public order act in conformity with the law by providing the Police with their campaign calendars so as to help the police maintain peace and harmony during the by-election campaign period.
