United National Independence Party(UNIP) General Secretary Reverend Alfred Banda was Wednesday morning clobbered by some suspected UNIP cadres at MUVI TV studios.
This was after he featured on MUVI TV Hot issue programme where he outlined a number of problems affecting the once ruling party.
The suspected UNIP cadres were angered after Reverend Banda alleged that first Republican president Dr. Kenneth Kaunda is behind the confusion that has characterized UNIP.
During the confusion and exchange of bitter words UNIP information and publicity secretary Victor Kaziko allegedly slapped Reverend Banda in full view of the onlookers at Muvi TV foyer.
Reverend Banda has since joined the UNIP revival, which is a faction from Tilyenji led UNIP.
Reverend Banda told Muvi TV that he has forgiven the cadres who slapped him.
He said we would not raise any charges against his attackers and said he was busy fasting.
He said he was a follower of India’ Mahati Gandhi and believed in non violence engagement and that is why he was just fasting.
He claimed that he never insulted KK saying he respects the older man.
