WE will petition the Sesheke parliamentary results because enemies of democracy disturbed the peace and turned the constituency into a blood bath, Patriotic Front Secretary General Davies Mwila has said.
Mwila said the PF candidate lost not because he was not workable but because ‘merchants of death and destruction’ resorted to violence.
Mr Mwila said in a statement yesterday that the extent of violence to which the UPND resorted was unacceptable, adding that it once again daringly attempted to block the Presidential motorcade as it was reprehensible and treacherous for all Zambians regardless of regional roots or political affiliation.
Meanwhile Mr Mwila said the PF was appalled at the vicious attacks the police unleashed on its members in Sesheke. Mr Mwila questioned the brutality the PF faithful suffered at the hands of police and demanded explanation from the police Command in Western Province.
“We demand answers as to why our law abiding unarmed members were butchered like criminals at the hands of the Police. We once again salute our gallant youths who yesterday escaped from the jaws of death at the hands of those who must protect them,” Mr Mwila said.
