First Lady did not interfere in Chanda Kambwili release

STATE House has refuted reports that First Lady Esther Lungu intervened in the release of Chanda Kambwili from Police custody.

Ms. Lungu has denied the claims and asked Diamond TV to retract their story.
The First Lady says she respects the due process
of the law and would not interfere or influence the police to release any suspect.
Ms. Lungu says such an act would be an indication that the First Lady controls constitutional offices which was not the case.
“I therefore, ask Diamond TV to retract the story
and apologise for the embarrassment caused,” she said.
This is according to a statement issued yesterday by Special Assistant to the President for Press and Public Relations Isaac Chipampe.
