Mongu stands still for HH

United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema yesterday brought Mongu central to a virtual standstill when he arrived in the Western Province town to a thunderous welcome.

The euphoria that gripped the Mongu residents saw some of the UPND sympathizers carrying placards with messages reading; “PF, 2011-2016, RIP” could only be compared to the popularity the MMD enjoyed in 1991.

Former Western Province Minister Richard Mwapela who has since joined the UPND said Mr Hichilema arrived in Mongu safely and that the PF cadres who planned to attack the opposition leader could not attempt confronting the huge crowd that welcomed the opposition leader.

Meanwhile Police in Lusaka have arrested two opposition UPND officials for suggesting that Zambians should start preparing for a Presidential by-election.

George Chombele suffered a citizen arrest in Kaunda Square when he was conducting his usual door to door campaigns in which he alleged that there would soon be a presidential by-election.

Acting Police Spokesperson Ray Hamoonga confirmed the arrest of Chombele who he said would be charged with publication of false statement and alarming the nation. Mr. Hamoonga also confirmed the arrest Fresher Siwale for allegedly proposing violence.

“When Siwale reached the police to find out why Chombele was arrested, he started calling other cadres and suggesting that they should fight the police to rescue his colleague who was in police cells,” said Mr. Hamoonga.

Both Chombele and Siwale are detained at Chelstone Police Station.

    The behaviour of the PF along with its Police Force is tantamount to putting the last nail in its own coffin. Are we heading into a dictatorship? The answer is no, we are already deep in a dictatorship and all peace loving Zambians must stand up and do everything legal within their means to remove the PF. Winter Kabimba has even started calling Sata as the Supreme Leader, after successfully borrowing this title from rogue states camouflaged as communist states. If we fold our arms or stand akimbo while Zambia is deteriorating into an animal farm owned by Sata assisted by Kabimba, we should not blame anyone for the mess and cacophony they will create.

    WHY ALARMING THE NATION NOW?

    What are they telling Zambians and investors when it is not time for elections?
