FAILURE by the UPND leadership to condemn acts of Armageddon by their cadres on the Copperbelt attests that the ‘criminals’ had the blessing of the party, the Advocates For National Development And Democracy has said.

Organisation executive director, Samuel Banda, it was sad the UPND leadership had not taken any decisive action against the ‘dangerous’ trend of violence.

Banda said the attack on innocent police officers who were carrying out their legal mandate was barbaric.

“We wish to condemn in the strongest terms, the violence that was exhibited by the UPND against the Zambia Police on youth day,” he said.

Banda said the thuggery behaviour of UPND cadres was setting a very bad precedent and needed to be checked urgently.
