Davis Mwila says Indaba on political violence was Lungu’s idea not Church

Home Affairs Minister Davis Mwila has claimed that the recently held Indaba on political violence ‬chaired by the Catholic Church and two other church mother bodies was called by outgoing President Edgar Lungu and not the Church.
And the Home Affairs Minister said the controversial Public Order Act was the same in many other countries.
Speaking when he featured on the Sunday interview programme on ZNBC TV on Sunday evening, Mwila claimed that the indaba was President Lungu’s idea.
‘The Indaba on political violence was initiated by President Lungu and not the Church,’ Mwila said.
And the Home Affairs Minister claimed that the controversial Public Order Act was the same in many other countries.
Mwila claimed that no one was using the Public Order Act (POA) to harass the opposition parties or stop them from holding meetings.
On the attack of Democratic Front (DF) leader Miles Sampa by PF thugs at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola, Mwila said it was a failure on the part of police intelligence because they failed to alert the police on the attacks and presence of the thugs at the airport.
Mwila however ‘justified’ the PF attacks on businessman Johabie Mtonga in Eastern Province alleging that he insulted President Lungu when he addressed a UPND meeting.
‘Johabie insulted President Lungu and that annoyed people in Eastern Province,’ Mwila alleged.
