Apart from the robust infrastructural development project rolled out in all parts of the country, good governance record, democratic credentials, exemplary leadership by His Eccellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu to mention but a few, the PF has continued to be the most tolerant and peaceful political grouping in Zambia.
Even under extreme provocation, the Patriotic Front has acted with maximum restraint and calm. They are preoccupied with finding solutions to the many challenges that were bequeathed to them by the former ruling party and fulfilling their campaign promises.
This is one political organisation that has exhibited the highest levels of tolerance.
Last weekend, the PF had their patience and tolerance put to a test. One of their expelled members and self-styled ‘commander’ Innocent Kalimanshi stormed the party secretariat which the venue of a media briefing where former NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili was received following his return to the PF.
Irate youths who were present, could not let ‘Commander Inno’ go scott-free. They descended on him. It is PF’s Kennedy Kaamba who came to the rescue of Kalimanshi.
This is despite the fact that commander Inno has been insulted Kaamba publicly in countless videos.
You may also wish to know that for weeks now we have been treated to glory bloody videos of UPND cadres who have been at each other’s necks over adoptions. Broken bones, bloody head wounds, gun shot wounds and even one casualty cleared through witchcraft after acing the primaries has been the norm in UPND yet the entire leadership has remained mute and failed to protect anyone.
It is because of the peace which Lungu loves and the peace which Kennedy Kaamba demonstrated on Saturday to save Inno that proves PF is better than UPND were many are still in hospitals and two in the morgue all because of primaries yet HH is silent.
This is the very reason why PF is the party of choice and not UPND.
