THE Patriotic Front (PF) on the Copperbelt has rubbished UPND threats to deal with anyone wearing political regalia, as a reflection of a failed system.
PF Copperbelt Media Director Munalula Moola said the failure by the UPND to set the stage for fulfilling its campaign promises of delivering agricultural inputs on time, affordable, mealie meal and availability of drugs in hospital had proved that it was an incompetent government, which wanted to govern the country through dictatorial tendencies and brutal cadreism.
Mr Moola was reacting to a statement by the UPND Lusaka Province Youth Chairperson Anderson Banda that the ruling party youths of Lusaka should deal with any body who wears PF regalia in public places.
Mr Moola said, instead of getting intimidated by the presence of the PF regalia in public places like markets and bus stations, the UPND must work hard to improve people’s lives so that the ruling party can become popular in various areas.
He said, it was embarrassing that instead of working hard to fulfil its campaign promises, the UPND was now exhibiting dictatorial tendencies and brutal cadreism.
Mr Moola said the conduct of the UPND and its cadres where they wanted to silence whoever was criticising their failures was a clear beginning of dictatorship which Zambians, starting from the church and Civil Society Organisations must resist.
