He has told ZNBC News in an interview that it is sad that the unruly youths are going against President HAKAINDE HICHILEMA’s continued efforts to completely bring an end to cadreism.

Mr. MWEETWA said the party will NOT sheild anyone, who was involved in the attack of Mr. MALANJI.

He said the party will ensure that the law takes its course in order to deter unruly conduct future.

On Tuesday July 19, 2022 suspected UPND cadres attacked Mr. MALANJI while he was conducting his parliamentary activities in his constituency.
