Patriotic Front national mobilization committee member Bizwell Mutaale has said UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema’s lust for power at all costs is now a disgrace to the Tongas. Mr Mutaale, in a statement issued following the UPND cadres’ attempts to stone the presidential motorcade in Monze on Saturday, said the violence exhibited by the cadres was sanctioned by Mr Hichilema and Monze member of parliament Jack Mwiimbu. “HH’s lust for power at all costs is now a disgrace to Ba Tonga. He does not represent the nationalism of our forefathers such as Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula, Mainza Chona and Elijah Haatuakali Mudenda to name a few. The UPND leader and his party’s morally deficient character does not represent the spirit of Nationalism. HH and Mwiimbu want to make it look as if all Southerners are UPND when in fact not. The truth is that UPND in Southern Province victimise and brutalise any southerner that is not UPND. It is even much worse how they mistreat non-Southerners affiliated to other political parties in the Province. It is shameful,” Mr Mutaale said.
