Hichilema Escapes From PF Thugs At Ndola Radio

In case there are those who were swayed to believe PF chief propagandist Fred M’membe’s claims that the media and political environment in the country had improved and way better than before, here is some evidence to the contrary.

Opposition United Party for National Development, UPND, leader Hakainde Hichilema was this morning forced to use a rooftop exit when his live programme at Sun FM in Ndola – the administrative capital on the Copperbelt – was disrupted by ruling PF cadres.

Those cadres beat up his supporters outside the station and were headed to the studio to inflict harm on him but quick action by Hichilema’s security personnel save the opposition leader.

There was no police presence worth protecting Hichilema from the unruly cadres who had assorted weapons including firearms.

The minutes video attached here shows how Hichilema, albeit calm and composed, escaped the lynching that could to some extent resulted in death as PF cadres are known to be ruthless even to their own members whom they have so far killed.

Opposition leader Fr Frank Bwalya was drench in opaque beer when he featured on Flava Fm in Kitwe on the Copperbelt last year. But M’membe unashamedly calls the political environment in Zambia the best. This video should also give that useless priest Kennedy Mumbi, programmes manager at the Catholic-run Radio Yangeni, an idea of what the environment is in the country.
