PF cadres beat up UPND supporters

PF cadres in Kasama have beaten up UPND supporters.

UPND Provincial Chairperson Nathan ILunga confirmed this to Mano News in a walk-in interview saying the incident happened on Sunday.

Mr ILunga said the PF cadres

 assaulted their UPND counterparts over party flags which have been mounted in town.

He said it is unfortunate that despite the party reporting the matter to police nothing has been done so far to apprehend the culprits.

And when contacted for comment, Northern Province Police Commissioner Bonny Kapeso confirmed the incident saying suspected of PF cadres assaulted three UPND members at Chikumanino market around 18:30 Hours yesterday.

Commissioner Kapeso disclosed that the police has since issued medical reports to the victims.

He stated that upon the return of medical reports signed by medical doctors, the police will thereby investigate the matter accordingly.

The Police Chief has since warned PF members to refrain from violence as ordered by Republican President Edgar Lungu.
