PF and UPND Clash in Mongu Saddens Mubukwanu
Mongu Central Patriotic Front (PF) Member of Parliament Nathaniel Mubukwanu has expressed regret towards the clash between Pf and UPND Supporters.
Last Friday, UPND and PF supporters in Mongu attacked each other’s secretariat and damaged property.
On Saturday, the police in Mongu managed to separate the supporters of the two parties who almost clashed.
Mr. Mubukwanu has since called for co-existence and tolerance between PF and UPND supporters in Mongu as violence had potential to reach unmanageable levels.
“I can confirm that PF and UPND attacked each other’s property in Mongu. Regrettably the unrest experienced in Mongu was politically motivated.
That situation is deeply regretted and we don’t want to tolerate it in democratic dispensation like ours,” he said.
He asked for political tolerance among the political players in Mongu and countrywide saying there was need for the two parties to compare notes as opposed to indulging in violence and other regrettable vices.
