PF media and publicity Director Chanda Mfula says hiring criminals to cause lawlessness in the country is a threat to the peace and security of the country.

Mr. Mfula has since called on the Zambia Police Service to investigate the UPND%u2019s alleged maneuvers to distabilise the peace and security of Zambians.

He says the UPND is associated with violence adding that past elections experiences have clearly implicated the opposition to be highly inclined to violent conduct.
