CB UPND women fume over Charmaine attack

By SANFROSSA MANYINDA
THE United Party for Nation Development (UPND) women on the Copperbelt have condemned the attack on its member, Charmaine Musonda and others.

Ms Musonda was attacked by suspected PF cadres in Chilanga.
Copperbelt Provincial women chairlady, Lillian Kapusana, described the attack as inhuman and called for everyone to condemn the act.
Ms Kapusana said the act was a criminal offence of the highest order and called on the police to bring to book all the perpetrators.
“One wonders what the message behind the act was. Is it meant to scare and intimidate women in politics? Well, this will not happen because we will not relent neither shall we be intimidated by such savagery behaviour.
“If anything, we shall remain strong and steadfast in our quest to push our agenda of women participation in politics and fight for change in this country,” she said.
Ms Kapusana advised the ruling Patriotic Front to appreciate that the UPND would continue exercising their right of movement and right to attend public gatherings.
She said that the party would not in any way be silenced by anyone as long as they were not doing anything wrong.
She advised the police to follow up the matter seriously, stating that there should be no sacred cows as no one was above the Law.
