SUSPENDED Eastern Province Patriotic Front youth chairperson Emmanuel Banda has lodged a complaint against an unidentified person who has been threatening his life.
Mr. Banda arrived at Lusaka central police around 15:00 hours to report the matter.
And speaking after reporting, Mr. Banda said that he decided to report to the police because this is not the first time his life is being threatened.
He narrated that on 14 February 2021 his family was attacked by unidentified people who got away with laptops and phones.
Mr. Banda said that prior to that he received a message where a person was saying that he had been sent by Dora Siliya to get traditional medicine in Congo so that he is dealt with. He advised those who are fighting him not to drag the name of the party in their fights. Mr. Banda said despite fighting with some individuals, he is not at loggerheads with the party. He also said that despite the threats by unknown people he was not intimidated. A video is circulating online showing an unidentified individual with kwacha notes strewn on the bed, claiming to have received it from Ms Siliya to threaten Mr Banda.
Meanwhile Petauke Patriotic Front Member of Parliament Dora Siliya has urged the public to ignore the video.
Ms. Siliya has since reported the matter to police to help establish the individual behind the video.
