Woodlands chaos was planned

Dear Editor,

The fracas at woodlands Police station was very well planned by very senior officials of the UPND who called in members from Southern Province. These were transported by buses early in the morning.

The fracas was designed to cover up the gravity of the militia training allegation which is a very serious matter; because we know some of the people arrested who were the more violent members of the PF. Some of them were expelled from the party for violence.

The suggestion that the people were training to be fit should not be taken seriously because we know them as unstable characters that were not able to work with others. What fitness were they trying to get in this gym which is not registered and has never been known to train anybody else other than the party cadres?

It would be different if we did not know the people involved but we know them as friends we have been together for a long time.

It is unfortunate that senior UPND officials decided to use this occasion to intimidate the police and people of Zambia. They want to bring about anarchy in the country without being challenged.  Their plan was to make the woodlands area ungovernable if GBM was detained in the cells. They were even prepared to make people camp at the shopping mall throughout the night as a demonstration against the detention of GBM.

This was to cause confusion and inconvenience to as many citizens as possible while showing that they had power and influence over events in the country.

Zambians must learn a lesson from this experience which shows that UPND officials want to be above the law. They don’t want to be questioned by the law and are certainly averse to any suggestion that they are ordinary citizens of the country who are answerable for their conduct.

This is a very big lesson as we move towards the August elections because these tendencies will be multiplied over if brought into office. They will not follow the law.

Time has come for Zambians to think very seriously about the quality of the opposition leader because in their actions the truth will be shown. If they could endanger so many lives to show muscle; what else will they not do?

David Banda.

Mealie meal prices must come down

Dear Editor,

The Government must monitor all the millers and wholesale companies which deal in mealie meal because the plan of reducing the price is not working.

Only a few companies are reducing prices while the rest are actually increasing prices and yet they are getting cheap maize from the Food Reserve Agency.

Most of these people are making vey high profits because the  meal is not even breakfast in some cases and yet they are demanding more than K70 per bag.

Unless Government controls prices, poor people will continue to be exploited by the righ millers who do not care about the hardships they are creating among the Zambian people.

Time has come for Government to realize that businessmen are very selfish and will never work with the people.

Luanshya Road gym unknown

Dear Editor,

A lot has been said about the Luanshya gym where the UPND cadres were found training. This gym is not known. It has never been registered. I live near Luanshya road and would have loved to train in the gym if it had been open as I now have to travel a long distance to Matero to train.

That was not a gym open to the public. It was a gym for the cadres.
