Governance Activist Leslie Chikuse has challenged PF Secretary General Davies Mwila to apologise to the nation for directing party cadres to forcibly take over the running of Markets and Bus stations.
In an interview with Komboni radio news, Mr Chikuse described the statement attributed to the PF Secretary General as unfortunate as it has the potential to bring chaos in the country.
He charged that Mr Mwila must understand that markets and bus stations are public places where every citizen has the right to trade or do business within these premises regardless of their political affiliation.
Mr Chikuse who is also Republican Progressive Party Vice President has since urged President Lungu to discipline his party Secretary General, for issuing what he termed as a careless statement that maybe misunderstood as government position.
Meanwhile, the RPP Vice President has commended President Lungu for clearing his government position on the running of markets and bus stations in the country.
PF Secretary General Davies Mwila has come under fire from a cross section of society after he advised councilors and cadres to take over the running of bus stations and markets during his recent tour of central province.
But President Lungu through his spokesperson Amos Chanda maintained that the running of markets and bus stations is a sole responsibility of the council.
