HAKAINDE Hichilema is trying to advance his political agenda through anarchy and bloodshed, nominated Member of Parliament Raphael Nakacinda has said.
And Mr Nakacinda says he has unearthed a scam in which the UPND has allegedly received huge funding in its well-orchestrated plan called “the grand disputes of the 2021 elections” to sponsor anarchy through propaganda.
Mr Nakacinda charged that Mr Hichilema, the UPND president, was directly responsible for the death of two people last Wednesday as he organised and ferried the cadres which resulted in a fracas.
He said Mr Hichilema’s irresponsible conduct started the fracas which led to two people being shot dead.
Speaking at a press briefing yesterday in Lusaka, Mr Nakacinda said Zambians needed to watch-out for Mr Hichilema’s kind of politics of trying to create mayhem around his political activities, most times leading to loss of lives in the various incidents recorded in the past.
He said it was sad that the debate on the death of the two people was tilted to suit a narrative of UPND’s political advancement.
“I want to announce to the Zambian people that we must all watch out on the politics that Mr Hakainde Hichilema is conducting. He always wants to create mayhem around his political activities.
“The Zambian people must know that a trouble maker that we have in this country who is trying to advance his political agenda around chaos is Mr Hakainde Hichilema,” Mr Nakacinda said.
He said what happened on Wednesday could have been avoided had Mr Hichilema not organised and ferried cadres to accompany him to police.
He said: “Mr Hichilema is an ordinary Zambian though leading a political party and is liable and accountable for his actions whether today or indeed in the past.”
Mr Nakacinda said the allegations the UPND leader was summoned for had nothing to do with politics, hence it did not warrant him organizing and ferrying cadres in the manner that he did.
Meanwhile, Mr Nakacinda has advised Zambians to be wary of politicians who have serious traits of desperate blood thirsty glorified warlords disguised as dignified political leaders.
He also disclosed that there was a well orchestrated propaganda to dispute the 2021 general elections.
And as we go to 2021, he said, we have to name and shame politicians who are attempting to sow confusion in this country.
