Stephen Katuka Counters PF Claims – ‘Chilanga Was Warfare’
The UPND Secretary General Stephen Katuka has said that there is no way what took place in Chilanga on Tuesday can be referred to as an election. He claims that ammunition and tear gas were used on the electorate.
Katuka has stated the biggest concern was the fact that this tear gas and ammunition was in the hands of political cadres not police.
In an interview with QTV News, Mr. Katuka says the ruling PF can claim that they won the Chilanga by-election, but that the circumstances under which they won the election are questionable.
Mr. Katuka has however, encouraged UPND members to remain united and hard working in ensuring that the party reclaims the seat in the next election.
Asked whether the UPND will petition the results of the election, Mr. Katuka says the decision has not yet been made by the party leadership
