Meanwhile NAREP has protested against the PF thuggery of blocking opposition leaders from speaking on radio Mano, a community FM.
Narep vice-president Charles Maboshe said ‘as NAREP, we protest in the strongest terms on the manner in which our Party President Mr. Elias Chipimo Jr. was harassed by the PF thugs in Kasama who stopped him from exercising his right as a citizen and leader of a political party in Zambia when he was scheduled to appear on Mano Radio Station this morning.
‘We want to send a strong message to the PF government and the people of Zambia at large that we are not a fighting type as our politics are issue based.’
He said NAREP is on a journey to restore the dignity, respect and care for one another and prosper the nation for all, instead of engaging in unnecessary confrontations.
‘This is a resolve where no one can stop us and we shall not be intimidated by anyone, least of all PF thugs. We want to remind the PF government that they will not be in power forever and therefore, let them use this opportunity given to them by the Zambian people to leave a good legacy.
‘We once again call upon the Republican President Mr. Michael Sata to use his good office for the good of the nation.’
The NAREP vice-president challenged the police for once to try to be professional.
‘We also call upon the police command to rise to the occasion and perform their duties professionally and diligently by bringing to book the PF thugs who manhandled and harassed our president and to make sure that he is given due protection for the rest of his tour of duty in the Northern Province,’ he said.
