Rupiah Banda is immune to prosecution and not investigations-Sakeni
Chief Government spokesman Kennedy Sakeni has said that the Government would like to advise all those who want to play national politics to learn to be honest. Misrepresenting facts will not take them anywhere.
In a press statement to the media today Mr Sakeni said that the Former President Rupiah Banda has been requested by law enforcement agencies to answer allegations levelled against him in the ongoing corruption investigations.
He said that they have told him that whilst they respect his immunity, he should consider attending the interview to clear the air. “There is nothing unconstitutional about this,” Mr Sakeni said
“Mr Banda is immune to prosecution and not investigations. So, let him face the allegations levelled against him”
“Attacking His Excellency President Michael Sata will not take away the allegations that Mr Banda is facing. Let Mr Banda answer the corruption allegations because there is nothing illegal that law enforcement agencies have done,” concluded the statement
