Disabled by political violence, Fred Saili, a member of the United Party for National Development, has called on all Zambians to rally behind President Hakainde Hichilema for the restoration of peace, national unity, and law and order in the country.
Mr. Saili emphasizes that the people of Zambia should support Mr. Hichilema in building on national unity and peace to achieve maximum socio-economic development under the UPND New Dawn Government.
Despite suffering atrocious attacks at the hands of the PF, Mr. Saili notes that the ruling party did not seek revenge, owing to the emphasis on national unity and peace pronounced by President Hichilema upon taking office.
Mr. Saili himself suffered a brutal attack by suspected PF thugs on Lusaka’s ring road as UPND youths were putting up Presidential campaign posters during the August 11, 2021 elections. He sustained deep cuts on his head and lost three fingers on his right hand, compromising his career as a bricklayer.
During the same bloody incident, Richard Sinkala almost had his head cut off, and the horrifying pictures went viral on social media.
