Over 18 ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) notorious youth cadets are battling for their lives at Kiwe hospital after sustained severely injuries at the political rally organised by Alliance for Democrcay (Aford) around Kaporo area.
The rally which was attended by hundreds of Aford supporters was graced by the party’s president Enoch Chihana and another party MP Frank Mwenifumbo.
The DPP Cadets were heard declaring that they would not allow other parties to take the limelight away from them and wanted to disrupt the rally.
Clad in DPP memorabilia and wielding pangas, the Cadets invaded the Afor venue for the rally and started chasing people.
However, the cadets where overpowered by AFORD supporters.
Aford president Chihana described the development as “retrogressive” to the democracy which DPP did not take part to fight for.
Fearless youths activist Steven Simsokwe said DPP officials should clean its house before reaching 2019 general elections.
According to him, DPP is creating a political environment of bloodshed especially if the Cadets will not be tamed.
“DPP cadets should not regard themselves as superior. They should stop intimidating others,” said Simsokwe.
Since Mwenifumbo joined AFORD, many people in Karonga followed him.
