The Zambia Police are looking Ms Nawakwi, the leader of the Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) and are determined to get her to answer to some unknown charges.

And in a statement by Dan Mwale, the Police deputy spokesperson confirmed that the Zambia police were looking for Ms Nawakwi whom he said had been summoned but had failed to present herself.

“I wish to confirm that Ms. Edith Nawakwi was summoned to report to the Police last week but her Lawyer requested to reschedule to today, August 29, 2023 at 14:30 hours. Today, Police received information that she was unwell and that the Lawyer has a bereavement,” Mr Mwale said.

Mr Mwale said the Zambia Police was surprised that Ms Nawakwi who had been reported to be sick was sending messages that Police were looking for her on social media platforms.

“We, therefore, advise that she reports herself to the Police,” Mr Mwale said.
