It’s too much, says former First Lady Esther

THE state has continued tormenting and harassing the family of Former President Edigar Lungu with the former First Lady, Ms Esther Lungu breaking her silence, complaining it has become too much and unacceptable.

“My children are too young to be harassed to this extent and this is now too much and unacceptable,” Ms Lungu said after her son Dalitso was summoned and questioned by the joint investigation team in Lusaka yesterday.

Dalitso Lungu has been appearing before the JIT since 2021 over property that was seized on suspicion that it was suspected to be proceeds of crime.

Dalitso was with of his father, former President Lungu and PF officials among them, acting president Given Lubinda, Emmanuel Mwamba, Raphael Nakacinda and Anthony Mukwita.

And Mr Lungu’s lawyer Charles Changano said there was no way one person could be appearing before different investigative wings over the same case.

He said they have told the JIT to take this matter to court because there was no way a case could be dragging for close to two years.

“It’s good they gave us a listening ear and they have promised to get back to us in the shortest possible time,” he said

And Mr Given Lubinda said that the former head of State and his wife decided enough was enough and that was why they followed to give him solidarity.

He said it was clear that there was a violation of Dalitso’s rights because his property was being withheld by the JIT.

Mr Lubinda said the former first lady was now becoming agitated as a mother as her children were being harassed by the Police.

He challenged the police to take the matter to court if they felt they had a strong case against Mr Lungu rather than traumatize the family like this.
