Stop harassing ECL – Bowman
By NATION REPORTER
THERE is no fight against corruption going on in the country and the UPND government is just using investigative wings to fight, malign and embarrass former President Edgar Lungu, Bowman Lusambo has said.
Mr Lusambo says it is unfortunate that the former First Family was being targeted by the UPND government by its continued in a bid to fix former President Lungu instead of trying to fixing the economy which they promised they would do.
He said for as many times, former First Lady Esther Lungu and her son Dalitso have been summoned by the law enforcement agencies and that it the fight against corruption had become a tool of harassing former President Lungu and all former leaders in the PF administration.
He said that the summoning of Former president Lungu’s son, Dalitso and his wife was nothing but harassment on the part of the former first family and that Zambians were getting depressed because the continued victimizing of the former head of State was a well calculated move meant to embarrass him.
“There is no corruption fight and the ACC are playing double standards in trying to fix political opponents of the ruling party. The investigative agencies have continued summoning the children of former President Lungu apart from harassing the former First Lady, Mama Esther Lungu. For the last two years, the ACC and other law enforcement agencies have been causing terror to former President Lungu by targeting not only his properties but his children,” Mr Lusambo said.
Mr Lusambo said that recent happening involving Lumezi Member of Parliament Munir Zulu and two Cabinet Ministers, Dr Situmbeko Musokotwane, the Finance Minister and his Infrastructure counterpart and Mr Charles Milupi was an indication that the fight against corruption was just a façade.
He said the investigative wings were fishing in the air as they had not come up with any conclusive evidence and that their primary aim seemed to concentrate on frustrating all those that were close to former President Lungu.
Mr Lusambo said they were a lot of corruption scandals that had emerged in the UPND administration involving high-ranking government and party officials but that President Hakainde Hichilema and his investigative wings had decided to give them a blind eye.
