PF cadres organised by Home affairs deputy minister Stephen Kampyongo have attacked people attending a UPND rally in Shiwangandu. See the video here:
The massive rally was supposed to be addressed by UPND chairperson Mutale Nalumango, former first lady Maureen Mwansawa, MPs Felix Muati and Mucheleka.
Scores of Shiwangandu residents had gathered for the rally and were waiting for the chopper carrying the team of campaigners when the PF thugs struck.
Police tried to fight PF cadres using teargas canisters in the process affecting Mrs Mwanawasa and Nalumango.
The Chopper had to be forced to fly to away while residents scampered in all directions while PF cadres wielding pangas chased after them. Shiwangandu is between Mpika and Chinsali.
PF Shiwang’andu Member of Parliament Stephen Kampyongo was forced to hire the thugs after seeing the massive positive response from residents.
Kampyongo is the deputy to Edgar Lungu at the ministry of Defence.
