Mr Chanda notes that the violence is as a result of failure to effectively resolve the differences in the ruling party sparked by calls for Secretary General Wynter Kabimba to be removed from his position.
He says the occurrences of yesterday reveal the magnitude of the divisions, bitterness and disunity which the party leadership must respond to immediately.
He says the death of the cadre should act as a wake-up call to the political leadership to do all it can to pull PF structures away from the brink.
Mr Chanda notes that while it will take time to heal inner divisions in the PF, it is not too late to prevent a catastrophe.
He says the ruling party must take immediate steps to seek a peaceful solution, supporting all attempts at dialogue to end the crisis within its rank and file.
He states that the PF leadership must not bury its head in the sand hoping for reconciliation to occur superficially.
Mr Chanda has called on all Zambians to condemn the killing and the criminals behind it.
He says there can be no justification for taking a life away and maiming others just to make political scores.
