Zambia not safe under UPND, says Copperbelt PF

By ROGERS KALERO

IT is not only divisive, but also a serious threat to the peace and unity of the country for the UPND to turn a blind eye and deaf ear to the crimes being committed by some of its cadres and government officials, while channeling its efforts towards persecuting the Patriotic Front (PF) officials, members and sympathisers, Munalula Moola has warned.

Mr Moola, who is PF Copperbelt media director said the selective application of the law where only PF officials, members and sympathisers from certain tribes and regions were being pursued for alleged corruption was a threat to the country’s peace and set the it ablaze.

In an interview, Mr Moola said the UPND was using law enforcement agencies to persecute and silence its political opponents on trumped up charges, while allowing its leadership and cadres to have a field day in plundering.

“This fight against corruption is nothing, but a sham. It is a sham because it is being used to persecute political rivals. What kind of a coincidence is it that only PF officials, members and sympathisers are being pursued for alleged corruption or suspected proceeds of crime.”

“While PF officials are being pursued by law enforcement agencies, the UPND officials involved in various scandals and violent activities have a field day committing any kind of offences. I must state that this is not only divisive, but also a threat on the peace of the nation,” Mr Moola said.

Mr Moola warned that Zambia had always been a peaceful country and that it would be sad for UPND to set the country on fire because of greediness, selfishness and its vindictiveness yet President Hakainde Hichilema had promised to promote unity and peace in the country.

Mr Moola said the UPND was likely to be the most violent party because within a short time of being in government, their cadres had been architects of violence, with their leaders rarely condemning violent conduct.

He said the UPND shall not continue to fool Zambians and make them believe in its leadership which had failed to find a lasting solution to the problems of drugs in hospitals and the challenges facing the agriculture as well as the mining sectors.

He said poverty and hunger had worsened in communities because of the UPND’s administration, capitalist policies where the poor have continued to get poorer, while the richer were getting richer every day.

“Capitalists have no regard for poor people, they only use them and dump them. A government which has regard for poor people cannot be giving farmers fertiliser in buckets, it will actually find ways of empowering small-scale farmers to become commercial farmers so that they contribute to food security,” Mr Moola said.

He said the failure by the UPND to lay a firm foundation for poverty alleviation and food security was a clear indication that the ruling party had no discernible plan to improve people’s lives.
