Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Patriotic Front (PF) Secretary General Davies Mwila has called on the South African government and the ruling party in that country to intervene in the ongoing xenophobic attacks on other Africans.

Mwila told journalists in Lusaka today that he has written to Africa National Congress (ANC) Secretary General Ace Magashule over the same.

Mwila said as Africans are one and there is no need to kill each other.

He stated that South Africans should realize that the same people they are brutalizing today helped them in their liberization struggle.

He emphasized that South Africa got Independence because of the support of other African countries.

He vividly recalled that Zambians and other Africans sacrificed their lives to liberate South Africa from the shackles of the Apartheid Regime.

“A significant multitude of Zambians and other Africans paid the ultimate price as their blood inter-mingled in death with the blood of their South African comrades,” he said.

The PF Secretary General said it was against this background that the Patriotic Front had followed” with deep concern and great trepidation” reports of increasing xenophobic violence by South African nationals on Zambians and other African nationals in South Africa.

“Xenophobic acts are against the spirit of the liberation struggle and the values of a liberated South Africa. Xenophobia is against universal African value system of” Ubuntu.”

Mwila said Africans should exbhit the spirit of oneness.

Meanwhile,Mwila disclosed that President Edgar Lungu has assured the people of Zambia that the prices of mealie meal will be reduced before the end of the year.

“I was with His Excellency the President, Dr. Edgar Chagwa Lungu this morning, and he sends his greetings to you all. The president told me that he is coming up with measures that will see to it that the prices of mealie meal reduce,” said Hon Mwila.

He indicated that the president personally assured him that he remains committed to see to it that the prices of mealie meal are within affordable range considering that the Patriotic Front remains a pro-poor party.
