Patriotic Front cadres spearheaded by Defense minister Geoffrey Mwamba last night almost murdered Michael Phiri the elder brother to PF Parliamentary candidate in the Mkaika byelections David Phiri.
Michael was brutally assaulted by PF Lusaka based cadres for supporting the MMD candidate. Michael Phiri who was assaulted together with three others is in intensive care unit at St Francis Mission Hospital in Katete.
Frantic efforts are being made to airlift Mr. Phiri to Lusaka. Medical sources at st Francis Hospital have told the Zambian Watchdog that Mr Michael Phiri’s chances of surviving are 50/50.
MMD Sinda Member of Parliament Levy Ngoma and MMD Deputy National Secretary Chembe Nyangu were Thursday morning now busy on phones trying to contact well-wishers to finance the airlifting of Phiri.
The Zambian Watchdog has been reliably informed that Zambia”s ailing dictator Michael Sata authorised the use of violence.
