A couple of Chilanga whose house was used as a UPND campaign centre during the recent Chimanja ward by elections has been brutally attacked by suspected Patriotic Front cadres.
Lusaka Province UPND Provincial Chairperson Dr Sakahilu confirmed the attack on Mr Laima and his wife on Tuesday evening adding that the couple was rushed to the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) for medical attention.
‘I have just come from UTH and as you can see from the pictures our people are terribly injured,’ Dr Sakahilu lamented.
The PF cadres are believed to have been commandeered by a known PF cadre nicknamed ‘Orga.’
The Chimanja local government by-election that was held on 14th September 2017 was characterised with violence between the PF and UPND and PF Media Director Sunday Chanda issued a false report that a PF cadre was killed but retracted it after the police said the report was false.
