PF cadres destroy UPND offices in Mongu

PF cadres destroy upnd provincial office in Mongu. Patriotic Front (PF) last night attacked the UPND provincial secrerariat in Mongu and looted all property.

The PF cadres armed with axes, pangas and short buttons arrived at the secreariat around midnight.
All the windows, doors and the grass fence were destroyed before they accessed the inside of the secretariat.
All document, furniture and other party materials were either destroyed or looted.
Police in Mongu confirmed receiving reports about the incident but could not state whether any arrests have been affected.
But eye witnesses said the police actually witnessed the looting of the UPND secrerariat by the PF youths in the night as they arrived shortly after.
Earlier in the day a group of PF cadres stormed Mongu provincial intercity terminus and started charging taxi and bus operators some money if they wanted to load.
They were however stopped by the bus station and market committee members.
The PF cadres became incensed and accused the committee of supporting upnd. Alert upnd members later moved in to intervene and save the committee. This sparked a mini fight just within the market. The fight was quenched by the police shortly after.
Therefore, the midnight attack on the upnd secretariat was in protest to the earlier failed attempt to have the bus station and market closed or take control.
