By Staff Reporter

National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mikunku ward vice chairman Simon Ponda has been attacked by suspected PF cadres in Chinsali.

According to NDC Facebook page NDC Chinsali coordinator Francis Chuulu said Ponda who has sustained head injuries was in a critical but stable condition.

Chuulu said Ponda who is NDC campaign manager for the Mulilansolo local government by-election taking place tomorrow was attacked at his home around 10:00 hrs on Sunday morning.

“The NDC official has been rushed to Chinsali General Hospital where he is receiving medical attention,” he said.

Chuulu added that the cadres are using treachery and intimidation to threaten voters in the area ahead of tuesday’s poll.

“Mulilansolo is situated 70 kilometres away from Chinsali boma and is largely seen as an NDC stronghold,” he said.
