Deal with UNZA land scandal


Share post:


PRESIDENT Hakainde Hichilema should show leadership and stop the illegal land allocation of land belonging to the University of Zambia by cadres, Patriotic Front (PF) Media Director Antonio Mwanza has said.

Mr Mwanza said that there was too much hypocrisy in the UPND as the head of state was painting an impression that they were fighting caderism when in actual sense they were a number of cadres on the loose.

He said that the President before ascending to power indicated that he would not condone caderism but that it was a different scenario as cadres were seen going and grabbing land at will.

Recently three UNZA Trade unions appealed to President Hichilema to deal with the issue of land belonging to the institution that was being encroached by suspected UPND cadres.

“The UPND came into power in the pretext that they will fight caderism but they have failed to quell this problem which has continued even after being in power for some time,” he said.

He said this was a litmus test for the head of state and the UPND government who came into power on the pretext of fighting this vice.
