*PF SECRETARY GENERAL DISTANCES THE PARTY FROM VIDEO CIRCULATING AND CALLS FOR IMMEDIATE POLICE ACTION*
Lusaka, 15th April 2019 – Patriotic Front Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila has distanced the ruling Party from a video circulating where people unknown to the Party are heard threatening the life of former Roan MP Chishimba Kambwili and issuing unprintables against his mother.
Hon Mwila says the Party finds the video to be highly offensive to its values and that the content thereof borders on nothing else but criminality.
On that score, the Party Secretary General is calling on the Zambia Police to immediately investigate the matter and bring the culprits to book.
The Secretary General has further reminded the Party members at large that President Edgar Chagwa Lungu has constantly called for non-violence in the Party and no such criminality would be tolerated.
PF believes that while we may hold differences with our opponents, they do not become our sworn enemies to the point of shedding blood or wishing for one’s cessation of life.
