Systematic Acts Of Violence By Suspected UPND Cadres Condemned

By Leah Ngoma


The People’s Initiative Charter-PIC- has condemned the acts of violence systematically perpetrated against civilians, including targeted political cadres, as well as other atrocities and violations of human rights.

There have been some elements of violence reported in some parts of Lusaka against perceived PF supporters by suspected UPND cadres with the latest attack on a suspected PF supporter at the Lusaka Magistrate Court yesterday which led to the arrest of 10 suspects.

Commenting on

the development, PIC Zambia Executive Chairperson Cleophas Phiri has stressed the need to bring to justice those responsible, including those at the command level, and urges all parties, including the government to take all necessary steps to prevent further violations of human rights, in particular those committed against civilians.

Mr. Phiri has since urged the Zambia Police Service through the office of the Inspector General to be proactive and action-oriented as opposed to being reactive.
