UPND president Hakainde Hichilema has accused President Michael Sata of being the one organizing thugs to beat up people who hold views different from his.
Hichilema was quoted by the QFM radio Friday morning saying Sata has organized more hooligans to attack him and other members of the opposition today at former vice president George Kunda’s funeral.
Hichilema said if president Sata and his party the PF can organize hooligans to harass opposition leaders at a funeral, nothing will stop them from beating them up during the African Freedom Day celebrations.
He said people who are condemning the opposition for shunning this year’s African Freedom Day celebrations should first condemn the violence by the PF.
The other week, Hichilema was attacked by PF thugs at the funeral of Nakatindi Wina. No one has been arrested though the police witnessed the attack.
Meanwhile, the late former vice president, George kunda will be put to rest today.
