But former Finance Minister in the MMD regime Dr KateleKalumba said it would be a folly for the president to act precipitately and warned of a bad ending if the law was not followed.
UPND Lusaka District Publicity Secretary Matomola Likwanyain an interview said they had presented the petition to the head of State so that they could commence proceedings to lift the immunity of Mr Lungu.
