Juvenile and insecure PF deputy minister Stephen Kampyongo like a coward hid elsewhere in Shiwan’gandu while he orchestrated his PF thugs to unleash violence on the UPND campaign team that flew into Shiwan’gandu yesterday afternoon.
The lives of the former First Lady Maureen Mwanawasa, UPND Chairperson Mutale Nalumango, Hon. Felix Mutati and Hon. Mucheleka were at risk, as was the helicopter and its pilot. Kampyongo sadly is also our nation’s deputy minister of Home Affairs. As the area Member of Parliament he has not had the decency to denounce the violence and barbarism in Shiwan’gandu, and it is ironic the PF is seeking the support of all Zambians in this Presidential elections, based on their violent panga culture.
Just two days ago Acting President Guy Scott clearly stated “We don’t want to be embarrassed that the president is from a nonsense party full of intimidation. We don’t want to see any violence; we don’t want to see any law-breaking. We want to see an orderly election and change because that is the only way”. We now challenge him to discipline District Commissioner Evelyn Kangwa whose involvement has been alleged.
It is not only the UPND but all Zambians who reject the PF strategy of unleashing fear and violence, be it in Shiwan’gandu, Levy Hospital in Lusaka or on the streets of Copperbelt.My advice is to give the position of public office the respect it deserves, even if you have no self-respect.
