Kambwili fears for Rachel’s life


REVELATIONS that President Hakainde Hichilema was among the suspects behind the abduction and keeping in captive of Fenula and her husband Milton Hatembo are grave and should compel the Church, the civil society organisations (CSO) and other interest group to demand the truth from the State, Chishimba Kambwili has said.

And Mr Kambwili has revealed that the State is allegedly planning to arrest and harm Ms Rachel Chileshe, the UPND member who has made startling revelations that President Hichilema, Ackson Sejani, Cornelius Mweetwa, Marshal Muchende and Chief Mukuni were involved in the abduction of the Hatembos.

Mr Kambwili is calling for investigative wings to critically look into the accusations Ms Chileshe had made against President Hichilema and others in the Hatembo’s abduction conspiracy instead of plotting to victmise her.

Mr Kambwili, who is a PF presidential aspirant said the law enforcers should not rush to arrest Ms. Chileshe but should investigate the matter so that Zambians could have the truth about the Hatembos’ abduction saga.

He said if the investigative wings were inadequate in handling the investigations into the revelations that the Hatembos were kept captive for several months before the 2021 general elections, outside assistance should be sought.

Mr Kambwili said the accusations against President Hichilema, as an opposition leader that he was a suspect in the disappearance of the Hatembos at the pick of electioneering were grave and should therefore be investigated thoroughly.

Mr Kambwili has called on the church and the all Non-governmental organizations to pile pressure on the State to investigate the matter thoroughly.

“We have heard whispers that law enforcement want to arrest Rachel and charge her with criminal libel. That should not be the case. Look into the matter very carefully and let Zambians know the truth. ,” he said.

Mr Kambwili said it was unfair to go and arrest Forum for Democracy and Development (FDD) president Edith Nawakwi for abduction when the people who did were free according to what was revealed.

He also if Mr Hichilema was really involved in the abduction of the Hatembo’s as was raveled by Ms. Chileshe the president must resign from his position.

Mr Kambwili said if the president knew where the Hatembos were being kept, then government compensated the people that were arrested for that issue that was tantamount to defrauding the state.

“Those are serious matter that we cannot just gloss over, investigative wings must quickly move in, if what Racheal revealed is trued people must be arrested for obtaining money by false Pretence, for defrauding the government and HH must resign on moral grounds,” he said.
