ZAMBIA’S HOME AFFAIRS MINISTER SAYS THE GOVERNMENT WILL PROSECUTE PEOPLE WHO UNDERMINE THE COUNTRY’S PEACE AND STABILITY, IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR POLITICAL AFFILIATION OR THE OFFICE THEY MAY HOLD IN THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION. EDGAR LUNGU ALSO SAID THE POLICE HAVE LAUNCHED AN EXPEDITED INQUIRY INTO DIVISIONS WITHIN THE RULING PATRIOTIC FRONT PARTY WHICH HAS LEFT AT LEAST ONE PERSON DEAD. SOME OPPOSITION GROUPS HAVE ACCUSED PRESIDENT MICHAEL SATA’S ADMINISTRATION OF FAILING TO PREVENT RULING PARTY SUPPORTERS FROM ATTACKING OPPONENTS. LUNGU TELLS REPORTER PETER CLOTTEY THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS WORKING TO ALLAY PUBLIC FEARS DUE TO VIOLENT INFIGHTING WITHIN THE RULING PARTY.
