The PF is trying to distance itself from the thugs it sent to attack former commerce Deputy Minister Miles Sampa at the Ndola airport.
PF Deputy Spokesperson Frank Bwalya claims the confusion at Ndola international airport was caused by 2 rival “Jerabo groups” who wanted to share the money Mr Sampa had paid to one of the groups for protection.
“Mr Sampa paid some money to a Jerabo group to go and give him protection and when a rival group heard about the money they went and tried to fight among themselves that’s what we know.
“The people who went to receive him at the airport whether it was in Ndola or Kitwe is none of our business, we are a democratic party that appreciates multi-party politics and all Zambians in this country are allowed to go about doing anything, associating with anybody and to enjoy their rights and freedoms as granted in the constitution,” Mr Bwalya said.
He added “I therefore challenge the police to arrest anyone that may be breaking the law in that manner as for us as PF we don’t subscribe to that and we will never engage on such type of behavior,” he said.
