PF thugs led by Kabwe’s Bwacha constituency chairman Saidi Chibwana this morning abducted leader of a Kabwe based NGO, Youth Meet Leaders Group and threatened to kill him if he continues to denounce PF bad governance standards.
YMLG president Martin Mwanza was supposed to feature on Kabwe’s KNC radio station’s ‘One on One’ live radio programme at 09:00hrs today but early in the morning PF thugs surrounded his house and way laid him to Chibwana’s garage in Ngungu township where he was threatened to be killed and ordered to lie that he would not feature on radio because he was in Kitwe. Efforts to speak to Mwanza failed as his mobile number was unreachable.
Officials from KNC radio confirmed having invited Mwanza who did not show up for the programme and told the Watchdog that he apologized that he had travelled to Kitwe.
UPND central province youth Chairman Milner Mwanakampwe also confirmed having been told that Mwanza was in Kitwe. Mwanakampwe, who condemned the threat on Mwanza’s life and liberties warned Chibwana that UPND will not allow Zambian youths being used as tools of violence. He said Zambia belonged to all the youths and old people like President Michael Sata inclusive.
Mwanakampwe hailed the works of the NGO, adding that leaders must not fear to honor promises made to the electorate. He also warned that Zambia had seen more brutal and impish regimes than PF and that PF would not be in power for ever.
Chibwana is a well known PF militia man and ritual killer whose shop in Ngungu township survived looting following the spate of ritual murders in Kabwe in 2012. He is also the thug who transported fellow thugs who robbed and attacked freelance journalist Wilson Pondamali during Mayoral installation this year and has been harrassing Bwacha PF MP Sydney Mushanga.
