Rumphi East Member of Parliament (MP) Kamlepo Kalua has warned the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) against suffocating democracy and intimidating political competitors.
Kalua made reamrks in Parliament when opposition legislatures registered their concerns with the rising cases of violence perpetrated by DPP cadres but the Police are not helping the opposition.
The outspoken Rumphi East MP accused DPP members of abusing democracy which he was one of the front line troops in championing,
“Some of these people in this House did not fight for multiparty democracy,” noted Kalua.
“We fought for democracy because we were trying to get away from politics of intimidation, hatred, regionalism and tribalism,” he said.
“We wanted to get away from it,” he added.
Kalua warned that he would not be intimidated by DPP.
“Some of us are not going to take it lightly if they want a fight; we are ready to fight them back,” he said.
