Luapula PF warns UPND against anti-Kabimba demo

PATRIOTIC Front Luapula Province political secretary Elizabeth Miyanda says the party in the province will not tolerate UPND's planned public demonstrations against Wynter Kabimba.

Miyanda's remarks follow UPND deputy secretary general Kachunga Simusamba's statement that his party would begin holding public demonstrations in all provincial capitals if the Anti-Corruption Commission did not show that there was an active investigation against Kabimba.

Miyanda said PF would not allow UPND's planned public demonstrations against Kabimba in Luapula because the PF secretary general had been cleared by the ACC and the announcement of the same was made public.
She said the PF in Luapula were now incensed with manoeuvres by the UPND to portray Kabimba as corrupt when it was made public that the ACC had cleared him of the allegations.

"As far as we are concerned, that is water under the bridge and that is why we shall not tolerate those demonstrations planned for provincial capitals; this is just a friendly advice, let the UPND abandon that plan because it will not succeed in Luapula," Miyanda said.

Miyanda wondered what the UPND was looking for when the ACC had stated that Kabimba, who is also justice minister, together with his defence counterpart Geoffrey Mwamba, had been cleared of the corruption allegations.

She said the PF in Luapula Province respected the ACC's clearance of Kabimba and would not be distracted by the UPND's allegations.
"We have a lot of trust in Kabimba. We know him as a clean leader and the UPND should not be provocative because we have always been very peaceful," she said.

She said it was clear that UPND had run out of issues to talk about hence their resort to waging war against Kabimba.
