Armed PF thugs hired by Home affairs minister and PF chairman for youths and security Steven Kampyongo, and Lusaka province youth chairman Kennedy Kamba today led an unlawful procession to threaten to beat and hound out Law association of Zambia president Linda Kasonde.
The cadres armed with hammers, machetes and guns among other weapons want to intimidate the LAZ leader so that she can bow to President Edgar Lungu’s dictatorship. And a source from the slogan chanting cadres has disclosed that they were instructed to beat and undress Kasonde yesterday by Kampyongo.
Meanwhile ex convict and Daily Nation newspaper owner Richard Sakala has also joined in the fight against Kasonde who has been under fire from the time her organisation showed an impartial side in guiding the nation on constitutional affairs.
Prior to the PF thugs’ raid on LAZ, Sakala in his daily Nation newspaper incited the cadres alleging that Kasonde is working for the interest of Fred M’membe and the opposition. Sakala, who many people say will soon go back to jail has been writing malicious and dangerous articles using pseudonyms or young journalists in his paper which has gained capitalisation through the PF by abusing state funds.
LAZ has also joined the court matter challenging President Edgar Lungu’s attempt to go for the third term in 2021 and has come out to defend Nchima Nchito who is being victimised for being a lawyer to former Post newspapers owner Fred M’membe.
