No political violence, come rain, come sunshine – Hichilema

PRESIDENT Hakainde Hichilema says come rain, come sunshine, no one will be allowed to return Zambia to bloodshed in the bus stops, markets and streets.

 

During the fallen PF reign of terror, political criminals, who traded under the name of cadres, had taken full control of whichever public place they regarded financially beneficial.

 

Under the UPND government, there have been isolated cases of electoral-related violence.

 

Yesterday, President Hichilema swore in Graphel Musamba as the Inspector General of Police, to replace Lemmy Kajoba.

 

Former Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) director general Alita Mbahwe was also sworn-in as the deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of administration, to replace Doris Nayame Chibombe.

 

President Hichilema said by-elections must happen peacefully and that no one should go into someone’s camp and start attacking people.

 

“If we allow that to happen once, twice, three times, the people will reform to those [old] days and you will be surprised that they will overwhelm you,” President Hichilema said.

 

“I have heard what people are saying that they will brutalised other citizens; they have to come past me, first. But before they reach me, they have to come past you (Musamba). Before they reach you, they have to come past your two deputies.”

 

The President reiterated that under his auspices, Zambia shall not degenerate to what it was during the PF dark era.

 

“We shouldn’t have short memories,” he said.

 

He noted that there was loss of professionalism in the police service.

 

“Let’s restore professionalism. Can you also clean our illegal guns. Minister [of Home Affairs and Internal Security Jack Mwiimbu], I chatted with you; you can’t have people discharging live ammunition willy-nilly. I went through a lot myself; [but] not a single day did I think of firing gunshots,” said President Hichilema.
