The Patriotic Front Party PF in Chipata today held a solidarity march in support of the President for exercising patience when his motorcade was blocked by UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema in Mongu.
PF District Chairperson Peter Musimuko told Breeze News that the party members marched to the provincial Minister’s Office to support the president.
Mr. Musimuko stated that if the president had not exercised patience and decided to use the law, those who blocked his motorcade could have been shot by police.
And Mr Musimuko says that members of the ruling party this morning presented a petition to police and the provincial minister calling for the arrest of all those who were involved in the blocking of the presidential motorcade in Mongu.
He says that the PF also wants police to arrest all those that have been insulting the president in Chipata district using social media.
Mr. Msimuko alleged that a group of youths, who are claiming to be PF members, are using a social media block sponsored by well-known people to cause confusion in the PF.
