Mweetwa says youths that defend HH are on their own

Date:

(Daily Nation) CADRES threatening violence against citizens and members of the opposition political parties should know that they are on their own and will face the temerity of the law should they decide to take the law into their own hands, United Party for National Development (UPND) spokesperson Cornelius Mweetwa has warned.

Mweetwa, who is also Southern Province Minister said the UPND cadres advocating violence should know and understand that the ruling party was cultivating a culture of civil politics and that violence and hooliganism would never be tolerated by the party leadership.

He said the UPND as a governing party believed in the rule of law and that threats made by North-Western Province UPND youth chairperson Bruce Kanema were not the position of the ruling party.

Those youths threatening to beat up opposition political party leaders or any citizen in the name of protecting and defending the President should know that there are laws in this country. The UPND is a civilised political party that respects the rule of law and that is why we all surrendered our sovereignty into the calabash called the Constitution. Should the youth implement their threats, let them know that they will be on their own and will face the temerity of the law,” Mr Mweetwa said.

  1. THIS IS GOOD AND TIMELY WARNING TO PREVENT THE UPND FROM BECOMING A VIOLENT PARTY LIKE THE PF WAS. CONTINUE WARNING THOSE ADVOCATING FOR HOOLIGANISM OTHERWISE UPND WILL DEGRADE INTO A VIOLENT POLITICAL MACHINE!

  2. YOU YOURSELF CORNELIUS MWEETWA, Garryliv Nkombo, Ephraim Belemu and Vincent Lilanda took turns to mock, insult, humiliate, slander and paid cadres on LIVE PHONE IN RADIO PROGRAMS AT BYTA FM RADIO targeting Edify Hamukale who was Southern Province Minister then. Is your mouth the right one today to advise the public on this matter? Hamukale left visible, measurable and cross cutting infrastructural development which is benefiting southern province and truth be told the man Hamukale was inclusive, humble, competent and left a real mark in the province unlike you who specializes in abandoning the province and choma. I HAVE QUESTIONS FOR YOU. 1.APART FROM ISSUING YOUR POLITICAL STATEMENTS, HAVE YOU TOURED SOUTHERN PROVINCE LIKEHAMUKALE DID TO MEET VARRYING STAKEHOLDERS 2. WHAT HAVE YOU TANGIBLY DONE SO FAR FOR CHOMA AND SOUTHERN PROVINCE SINCE YOU HAVE NO POLITTICAL ADVERSITY LIKE HAMUKALE/S ERA? WHAT IS YOUR DEVELOPMENT PLAN FOR SOUTHERN PROVINCE? this is why why we feel you have failed us sir and only gifted in talking nonsense

  3. Yes, it is very important to know that liberals do not support violence. And we all should know that violence is an indication that one lacks diplomacy and the ability to debt which is the corner stone of liberals.
    Liberals would like all business to operate within the confine of the laws.
    In a liberalized economy, no business has a right to attach another business.
    Liberals support policies that are socially progressive and promote social welfare.
    They also support a political and social philosophy that promotes individual rights, civil liberties, democracy, and free enterprises.
    So therefore, all business are equal to do their business within the laws.
