President Edgar Lungu and his PF have sent a bunch of hired thugs to disrupt the UPND mega rally to be addressed by the UPND campaign team at Comet grounds in the sprawling Makululu compound but UPND youths have promised their counterparts a ‘wonderful’ showdown.
The thugs who were bussed in about a week ago are accommodated at the official residence of central province minister Davies Chisopa, while some are accommodated at the Presidential guest house in Luangwa township. Disgraced Kabwe lawyer Tutwa Ngulube is providing food to the thugs.
But a named UPND youth leader told the Watchdog that his men were equal to the task and would beat the hell out of the PF thugs.
“We are aware of their presence and when they came. They tried us in Matero and you know what happened, but tomorrow we will double the Matero formula. This is Kabwe and if you recall it was here where a President was chased with stones. We will beat them badly,” he warned.
And according to information leaked to the Watchdog, the hired thugs will be dressed in UPND regalia and first beat ordinary citizens then go and change and start fighting the genuine UPND cadres in a staged ‘retaliation’.
