Home Affairs Minister Kennedy Sakeni says the United Party for National Development (UPND) is determined to ensure that the Patriotic Front Government does not rule the country in peace.
Mr Sakeni has told QFM news that the foiled demonstration by the UPND is as a result of selfish political ambitions of the opposition political party.
Mr. Sakeni says it was wrong for the UPND to organize youths to protest when the Police had denied them permission to go ahead with the protest.
The minister states that Police have the mandate to maintain law and order especially when it comes to protests that have the potential to turn into riots.
Mr Sakeni has questioned the motive behind the UPND’s demonstration against Director of Public Prosecutions Mutembo Nchito when the issue of the K14 billion Development bank of Zambia debt forms part of matters before the courts.
He has however regretted the beating of the protestors by the police
