Mr. Hichilema expressed sadness and symathised with the victims who are UPND Chilanga constituency members and were attacked by known PF cadres.
The UPND President strongly condemns violence and reiterates his calls for peace and unity based on respect for the rule of law and order, as well as respect for human rights and freedoms.
Mr. Hichilema is of the view that citizens must differ on principle as opposed to resorting to violent.
The UPND leader called for the arrest of the known perpetrators of violence in the country who are being reported.
He said without arresting the perpetrators of violence, citizens may resort to act in self defence, a situation that would bring arnachy in the country.

The UPND leader stated that currently it is impossible for other political parties to freely meet and mobilise members due to the ongoing violence, restrictions on people’s freedoms and rights.
