Opposition United Party for National Development UPND President Hakainde Hichilema has appealed to the ruling Patriotic Front PF to council their cadres against interfering in the smooth running of the civil service.

Mr. Hichilema says it is unfortunate that PF cadres have been allowed to intimidate and harass civil servants that are tasked to offer a service to the nation.

Speaking during a media briefing in Lusaka today, Mr. Hichilema said that the continued intimidation by cadres on civil servants is detrimental and leads to poor performance by government workers.

And Mr. Hichilema has also urged the PF to tame their cadres in bus stations, markets and public places to ensure sanity is observed in society.
