The statement by this thug of a Minister, Steven Kapyongo that UPND freedom will not be granted until they sober up is personal delusion, misplaced and can only come from an irresponsible Minister and government. These freedoms are not at all pocketed by any individual minister. The personal introspective in himself before uttering that statement would have helped him but we know that when thugs team up like the PF nothing sensible comes out of them.
Sending police to kill citizens at a huge cost to ensure HH and GBM freedoms are not granted is utter nonsense. How do you give cadres live ammunition for a peaceful crowd with bare hands? Shooting to kill and throwing tear gas in innocent people’s homes causing death. Are there no rubber bullets in Zambia police armory? All these commandants giving instructions will soon be answerable for the many deaths caused by Zambia Police.
The state has so far helped UPND confirming to the world what we have said on our curtailed freedoms by the state. HH and GBM have suffered state harassment for a long time now. Our members locked up in jail on trumped up charges. There is never a single month that passes by without HH and GBM appearing in Court in Zambia. The UPND argument is legally binding because the truth is that no single court declared Edgar Lungu winner after the petition was filed. The Petition is a governance matter because it boarders on legitimacy of PF. Edgar Lungu was not legitimately sworn in by the Chief Justice as per constitutional requirement. Why would a low level officer sware in a head of state when you have a seating Chief Justice and her deputy? The UPND will not recognize illegality not until the petition is heard and a winner declared. What is wrong with UPND leadership meeting it’s members? What does PF not want UPND to say to its people? The UPND is now using brains not emotions to bring to the fore the stupidity in PF government. Every sane person will ask, what is government afraid of if they won legitimately that they should stop opposition from holding a rally? Only cowards and thieves would do that as they do not want the truth be known to every one. The UPND will not recognize Edgar until the petition is heard and for this we owe no one an apology. You can not silent the voice of the majority citizens the UPND represents. The Fixing team.
