President Edgar Lungu has ordered police to immediately question opposition Hakainde Hichilema over his remarks that he controls the Zambian intelligence system.

During a news conference last week, Mr Hichilema claimed that he controls the state intelligence system in the country and has access to intelligence files before President Lungu.

President Lungu said the Police should investigate to ascertain whether Mr. Hichilema’s claims are true or are just aimed at bringing confusion in the country through mere policking.

He has also directed Police to investigate and identify the officers leaking information to the UPND leader.

President Lungu issued the directive this morning at State House when he swore in Justice Ireen Mambilima as Chief Justice.

‘I expect the police to move in and find out from him how he is doing so. Has unsurped the powers of the President. The past five days have worried me a lot and I want you to find out from him whether it is true he runs the OP in this country because as far as I know there is only one President and that President is me and through me we all have to be governed,’ he said.

He said, ‘the police must find out from HH how he is controlling the state intelligence system and if there are people leaking such information to him, we need to fish them out and charge them and if there is a criminal offence occasioned, the Director of Prosecutions will take it up.’

President Lungu also reiterated that he will not interfere in the operations of the Judiciary.

‘As for me, I want to assure you that I will not interference with the judiciary, I will not interfere with the court general and I will not interfere with Parliament,’ he said.

He said with the appointment of a new chief justice, Zambians expect speedy transformation in the delivery of justice to the public.

And Justice Mambilima pledged to expeditiously address the challenges affecting the speedy delivery of justice in country.

Justice Mambilima disclosed that she will be meeting stakeholders to discuss how this can be addressed.

‘We hit the ground running and address the issues affecting the delivery of justice but it needs the input of all stakeholders including the bar, the public, the government and ourselves, we are going to start now and meet all the stakeholders,’ Justice Mambilima said.

  1. And people doubt when we say the police in Zambia are unprofessional. Libongani should resign. Does it need a head of state to tell the police who to question?

      You should question the OP not HH.

    • Bring it on Lungu and see how Zambia will be set on fire in a flash.

      For HH to have his intelligence structures is no offence under any law in Zambia.

      Every political figure has some people who inform him of some plans against him or his family.

      I am waiting to see how this will pan out.

      If HH says No to questioning then what?

    • Bwana Presido don’t worry abt HH. he is used to getting favours. just recently he was enjoying the support of MUVI Tv with their 80 % analysis . this time he knows wats happening with OP . The Question should be , is it giving him the needed infor to be at plot 1.

      You are absolutely right. Its Lungu ‘s job to question his intelligence structures to find out who leaking intelligence reports not HH the messenger.

      Lungu should actually be thankful that HH is helping him to shape and tighten his intelligence.

      This is just the right time to do it when Mr Matapa’s death is still fresh people ‘s minds.

      I can not wait to see Lusaka come to a stand still or possibly burn while HH is being questioned.

      Lungu will regret this move for sure.

    • Go ahead and question him, its the right thing to do but keep it in mind that Mutembo will enter a nolle prosequi on behalf of HH again to spite E.L. If he is not careful, E.L will spend so much time fighting his ‘perceived enemies’ and lose sight of 2016. These enemies are gaining political mileage off his reactions. In the end, people will give HH a sympathy vote for all he is being put through. Remember the late MCS and tear-gas, rumors of collapsing…..1 million miles ahead of R.B in political mileage. Careful not to fall into that trap.

    • My advice to president Lungu is to take it easy and be smart.This move plays well in HH’s hands.HH is distracting Lungu from concentrating on the economy and come 2016 he will have achieved nothing and the people will vote him out.HH will buy the much needed publicity from Lungu and this case will only set fire and Lungu will not win.Sata also used the same tactics on RB ,when he openly said that he had op information on his desk at famers house everyday before RB lays his hands on it.

    • The fact that lungu is bothered by the intelligence leak which HH published shows that the information disclosed by HH is very true.

      If the information HH disclosed was false, Lungu would not have been rattled by it. He would have dismissed it as nothing to undermine his authority.

      Now that Lungu is troubled to the extent of directing the police to question HH when not long ago, when Mr Matapa was brutally murdered Lungu said he should not be the one to direct the police to arrest any criminal but the police should judge for them selves.

      Lungu’s move proves that the police are there to protect his political establishment and not the citizens at large.

      The woman was beaten with her son, Lungu never moved swiftly to direct the police to investigate.

      Lungu is a PF thug also.

      DONT BE SO NARROW MINDED MAN. U THINK HE WONT QUESTION THEM? IT’S OP MIND U!! HH IS JUST “HELPING WITH THE INVESTIGATION”.. AND U SAY “BRING IT ON” ‘AND SEE FIRE’! SO U DELIBERATELY PROVOKE SITUATIONS SO THAT WHEN U ARE PROSECUTED BY LAW U “BRING FIRE” YET U ARE SO DESIROUS OF RULING THIS COUNTRY? HONESTLY U PEOPLE ARE VERY SICK! WHY SUCH SELFISHNESS?

    • MR PRESIDENT, THEY DON’T EVEN NEED TO BE ORDER. LEAKAGE OF SECURITY INFORMATION INTO WRONG HANDS SUCH AS HH SAID INFORMATION IS LEAKED TO HIM BY OP IS A SERIOUS OFFENSE ON THE PART OF THE LEAKER AND THE RECIPIENT. POLICE SHOULD JUST ACT WITHOUT EVEN INSTRUCTING THEM. POLICE, IT SEEMS LIKE DON’T KNOW WHAT THEIR JOB DESCRIPTIONS ARE. OR ARE OUR POLICE TRAINED ENOUGH TO KNOW WHAT AND WHAT IS NOT AN OFFENSE- A SERIOUS ONE FOR THAT MATTER? IS OP THAT CORRUPT FOR SURE TO SELL INFORMATION JUST LIKE THAT? IF OP CAN SELL INFO JUST LIKE THAT, THEN THERE IS NO SECURITY IN ZAMBIA. HH MUST TELL THE NATION WHICH OFFICER OR GROUP OF OFFICERS WHO GIVE(S) HIM TOP GOVERNMENT SECRETS. AND LET THEM ACCOUNT FOR THEIR DEEDS. THIS IS NOT JUST LIKE A RUMOUR. IT’S FROM THE HORSE’S MOUTH.

    • @Wanzelu; sure bring it on. You and your lot will be clobbered. Don’t be delusional. The Zambian people don’t love HH that much to risk their lives for him. HH invested too much money in the last elections and borrowed heavily. Now he is desperate and willing to destabilize Zambia so he can rule through the sword. I used to like HH but recently his image simply oozes bitterness. He might just be the one to bring war in Zambia.

LUNGU SHOULD BE REMINDED THAT THERE ARE MILLIONS OF ZAMBIANS BEHIND HAKAINDE HICHILEMA. TRY TO TEMPER WITH HH, AND YOU WILL SET ZAMBIA ON FIRE! WE SHALL ENFORCE A REVOLUTION. WE SHALL FIGHT! HH IS MORE POPULAR THAN YOU LUNGU IN OUR COUNTRY. IF YOUR POLICE DARE TOUCH HH, THEN YOU ARE DECLARING WAR!

    • @Truth. No one is going to start a war on behalf of HH and if HH is more popular than Lungu, then he should have been in state house right now. HH missed his chance to be president in the last election. HH and the rest of the you guys(UPND) are very bitter and will remain bitter. Getting Intel that is intended for the eyes of the president is a serious crime and you should UPND should hope their childish leader was merely ranting when he said he controls the OP. No one will go to war if HH is arrested.

    • HH has brought it upon himself.It is a very serious offense the world over for anybody to have in their possession a classified document without authority.This issue is not a joking or political matter.Some of the intelligence reports border on State security and if our security system is so lax that a character like HH can easily be given a secret intelligence report,what about the sympathizers of these religious fanatics who have plenty of money to bride their way,will our security personnel manage to refuse to sell the information? God have mercy.

This is the problem with the President appointing top brass in the police force. There has to be a better way of doing this.

    • Under 5 politician, HH, needs to be questioned so that he begins to understand that seeking to undermine the state institutions you wish to serve Zambians under is foolishness of the highest order. Should it be proved to be mere politicking, then Zambians will stop to take HH seriously for what he says. Should the interrogation of HH and investigation of the Special Branch yield anything, then the moles can be smoked out so HH can look after them with their families. It is shocking to see how UPND good-for-nothing cadres on this site seem to down play the gravity of this issue.

  3. Time to handle Icilema the only way he deserves, by being not only seen to be in charge of the country, but also to firmly and effectively be in-charge of Zambia. To put it simply, Icilema has gone over the top, and it’s time to rein him in.

  4. But Lungu the Office of the President should be used to protect citizens and not to help you hold onto power. A woman was recently battered in the market by suspected PF thugs, why didn’t you swiftly move in the police to investigate the suspects and bring them to book? To date those thugs are still free.

    But when it affects your hold onto power you quickly want to bring the police to investigate. These are politics HH is playing on you and you might make him a hero. You are the president but why are you worried?

Please stop inciting violence. Pf supporters plus police will make UPND cadres mash potato with cabbage, the recipe of Nazi concentration camps.
      We all should be preaching peace not ‘bring on violence’! Most of you preaching violence behind your key boards will not even physically step up when push comes to shove! Neither HH nor Lungu deserve Lusaka being burnt down because of them. I don’t live in Lusaka but that is the capital city of Zambia.

  7. This is a very big problem that Zambia keeps suffering from. Why does it need a President to direct/order the police to question a citizen if they think he has committed a criminal offence? Why should the President work for the police? This has now been politicized because the police are now working as police-politicians. Yes it was reckless for HH to insinuate that he control the OP. He must sober up a bit with his political rhetoric and let Lungu rule until the next elections because that’s what’s gona happen anyhow. Lungu must be a bit tolerant sometimes. Concentrate on your promises because you’ve got little time left yo fulfil all those promises you made.

  9. The moment HH admitted to fraudulently obtaining classified material and presidential secrete files from the OP was the moment I started doubting his presidential calibre. Politicking is one thing but boasting about performing a crime is just too streetwise to be associated to a presidential hopeful. I don’t think this is defensible.

    • Intelligence is just a piece of information. There is absolutely nothing wrong in some one accepting that he has intelligence information.

      Under which law is Lungu going to prosecute HH. HH is always miles ahead of these chimbwis. For him to issue such a statement he knows that he is under no obligation to disclose his sources and they is no law against possession of classified documents in Zambia.

      If there is please quote it for me.

  18. I must state that i first saw this info leakage under the leadership of the late Michael Sata when he was in opposition. He had all the info at his fingertips.

    The govt was at pains to pin him down. Now the legacy has fallen on HH, and i am pretty sure it will be difficult to pin him down.

    In a democracy it is very difficult to eradicate this vice because of party preferences. You only correct this in a one party state or in a dictatorial regime.

    Arrest HH and you will see how the world will rise against you. Take a swipe at the OP officers and not HH.

      As commander in chief of the armed forces and Defence Minister, the security of the country is his business.

      Unfortunately HH confessed to a very serious crime under any jurisdiction, and the law is strongly against him on this one. No wonder I heard him on one radio trying to do a disclaimer because unlike those of you who support blindly, he has now understood his folly and realises he could be charged with the most serious offence of espionage, and treason for trying to usurp the powers of the President namely: wanting to control security forces or causing them to report to him instead of their boss and thereby wanting to make himself the commander of the armed forces illegally.

    Whenever other Ministries make decisions, they want to interfere and control them as if those Ministries report to them. We are glad that you have seen what we have been saying. Specifically, the Minister of Finance thinks he can bulldoze everyone including yourself and this is not good.

    Some people who you have removed from their positions are so bitter like HH and these are the same that have infiltrated your system and you need to completely purge them out and work with only those you can truly trust, it happens all over the world.

It is sad for the police also to wait for instructions from the head of state to question what is in public domain! If it is a common person they would have been clashing to arrest the individual! Wake up ba kapokola. The police should go further to establish the source. Whoever will be found wanting chuck him/her, in fact there alot of credible people with better qualifications in the country.

Anyone can be appointed and removed from public office when the appointing authority deems it fit and you can’t start challenging such decisions as if those institutions are private entities.

    Some of your Minister wanted by all means to be appointed Vice President when the whole country knows that she has messed up in the past and has together with other Minister been trying to control strategic institutions by employing relatives.

Since we cannot punch each other or gun brawl, I strongly suggest we just start bewitching each other. Me, no one should try, just a friendly warning, the man with a traditional laptop is my uncle.

HH supporters stop messing around with God , you like exhalting HH as if he is god. if you want to see HH in state house stop worshiping Him , the way you sing about hh’s mansions and riches awe kwena ,thats why God will never allow him to rule not until you stop idolising him . no wonder why he is pompous coz you worship him too much.

  30. So if it bothered him for 5 days why didn’t he not call a press conference at State House? He is happy to talk to press in RSA on TV but not happy to talk to people in Zambia live who pay his salary…power already started corrupting is small brain…when are these empty tins going to relies that a swear-in ceremony is not a time to lecture your appointees and issue silly directives like old man Sata did.

    • Come on @Jay Jay

      Chief Justice promised to find out delays in the Justice system as a way of letting us know the thrust of her job from the onset.

      I think it was apt in the circumstance, that the President discuss legal matters at hand. If he called a press conference every time HH coughed nonsense we’d get bored. Such is HH’s reputation for nonsense. Just a bit of mind control…Mambilima will remember to expediate (expedite?) HH’s matters before the law!

      This way it’s almost comical….like he is taking him serious and calling his bluff.

  31. ECL should be careful. he has no majority support only a fool will deny that. he avoid a party conversion, he used the security agents to rig elections. If he thinks he can adopt Mugabe’s tactics it wont work in Zambia. There is tension and violence can break anytime. when people are angry they fear no weapon.

  33. Like many people bloggers here, I have very limited knowledge on legal matters, but when HH said he had access to intelligence files before President Lungu did, I knew that was not the way to go. Politicking is one thing but boasting about having access to the intelligence files is another. Despite all this brouhaha, I support HH through and through.

    Quote
    ‘President Lungu said the Police should investigate to ascertain whether Mr. Hichilema’s claims are true or are just aimed at bringing confusion in the country through mere politicking.’

    Either way, HH is prosecutable. If he HAS he will go to jail. If NOT he is an affirmed Rouble Rouser, and will lose respect in our eyes……not that there was much left after his horribly childish campaign where he promised every one would become rich under him,…….the Mines Robber.

  36. Very comical.

    I do sympathies with ECL, he clearly presiding over a very
    divided nation which he has admitted himself; he has enemies within his own party who are not happy with the manner in which he ascended into power, then he has embraced RB who has very heavy baggage.

    Unbelievable also that Kaingu is one of the Minister’s in a PF led
    Government, the same Kaingu who rubbished and tore Sata’s speech in Parliament 2012. Is this how you uphold late Sata’s legacy?

    ECL should focus on having a robust working team, address tribalism, nepotism, violence, unemployment, mineral taxes etc. should aim to win the hearts of those who did not vote for him and the skeptics towards 2016.

    Be to his own detriment if he focuses more on crushing opposition and travel there is not…

  37. There is no doubt that Edgar Lungu is the most despicable president ever to rule Zambia. He is operating on a very thin line. He is like a mosquito, cockroach or house fly. His actions can easily set the country on fire. Even within his own party, many are keenly waiting like hungry wolves. He needs to sober up and stop ordering the police around. This is not about HH alone but about how aggrieved the whole country is.

  38. SOME PEOPLE ARE MADE PRESIDENTS BUT STILL REMAIN FOOLS. IS LUNGU NORMAL? DOES HE THINK HH CAN DISCLOSE ANY INFORMATION TO POLICE CONCERNING HOW HE COLLECTS INFORMATION FROM THE RULING PF GOVERNMENT SO THAT HE CAN EFFECTIVELY DISCHARGE HIS DUTIES AS OPPOSITION LEADER IN OFFERING CHECKS AND BALANCES. LUNGU’S GOVERNMENT IS A SYNDICATE OF CRIMINALS, AND IT IS IMPORTANT FOR INTELLIGENCE DEPARTMENT TO REVEAL THE SECRETIVE DEALS THAT THIS CRIMINAL GOVERNMENT OF EDGAR CHAKOLWA CHAGWA KALE LUNGU IS DOING, SO THAT ZAMBIANS ARE NOT DISADVANTAGED BY THESE SELFISH CRIMINALS IN LEADERSHIP. LUNGU KNOWS THE DIRT HE IS DOING, AND HE IS SCARED THAT THINGS ARE COMING IN THE OPEN!

  39. If there was no HH on the political scene I don’t know what job Lungu would be doing. Since he dubiously became president all you hear from him every other day are threats on HH and the falling tons of bricks. He sleeps HH, dreams HH and hallucinates HH. He is the same one who declared publicly that he has information about the murder of Ruth Mbandu but to-date he has not been questioned. WHY??

What has happened to Moses wanomba? Is he still Moses? If you have read the Bible properly, you can recall that Moses never reached the promised land. So will your Moses ba PUND (UPND)! Moses is trying to attract attention of others so that he can reach the promised land, a thing that will never happen!!!!

Does this not tell you he is just an under-five perpetual under-performer judging him by the number of times he has lost? Very soon he will break a record of political losses in the Guinness Book of World Records, if he has not done so already. To hell with this Freemason! Who wants to be ruled by a Freemason?

  47. Lungu has played in the hands of HH. Any intelligent opposition leader can exploit EL’s glaringly open weaknesses! Emotional and somewhat insecure. One moment he says he does not direct police on anything and next day, he is issuing instructions to Libongani. If the past five days have worried EL, it will be worse if ever police dare HH. He has a huge following mind you….the last elections are enough evidence you stand shoulder to shoulder if you did not know. Do not give HH an inch into your emotions if you want to be a happy president; you have more to lose than he does.

  51. I am wondering if Wanzelu and others blindly supporting HH’s transgressions are familiar with the provisions of State Security Act and the Zambia Security and Intelligence Service Act. In other countries, if you breach equivalent acts to these you go into the cooler for a very, very long time.

    Wanzelu deludes himself that if HH is arrested UPND members will set the country on fire. I suspect Wanzelu believes Southern province is a country! I am posting this from Kitwe, the hub of the Copperbelt, and most people I have talked to are not amused by HH’s and UPND’s provocative behaviour. When Sata – at the height of his popularity – was briefly jailed for a false charge of vehicle theft, did PF members set the country on fire?

  52. As all Zambians know, our group/organisation; the ‘Accurate Source is the most respected group of highly educated political bloggers with Professors in Law and Poitics being fully subscribed members.

    And on the issue of Intelligence between HH and Edgar Lungu, the stand of the Accurate Source is that HH is gaining political momentum which will be difficult for Edgar Lungu to conquer. This means that Edgar Lungu’s popularity is fast going down while HH’s popularity is climbing at a lightening speed.

    On 20th January 2015, HH’s popularity stood at 47% while that of Edgar Lungu was at 48%.
    Currently HH is at 54% while Lungu is sliding at 46%. This is because majority of PF Members believe Edgar is proving to be a wrong successor for the Late PF Strong Man Micheal Sata.

  53. Too bad to see Presido ECL already having sleepless nights! Power is already getting him drunk. I am sure he is going to fire Charity Katanga soon after she presents her findings of the investigations. He will call it “rubbish” just like Late MCS rubbished a lot of reports of the various commissions of inquiry put in to investigate various issues. The police is incompetent to do serious investigations without using crude methods like force or threats! RB called on security wings to investigate Zambian Airways k14million, up to now they have failed to take anyone to court. Anything a president speaks out of anger and by giving orders will never yield his desired results and that will just make him look more foolish Investigate how the mines have defrauding poor Zambians on taxes!…

  56. It’s very easy to differentiate people who contributing with intelligence knowledge and those just contributing without any shred of knowledge. Anyone who has worked in the intelligence world will say leaking classified information to anyone without the authority criminal offence just as anyone accessing medical notes for someone without proper evident of usage can be jailed under the law. Lungu is not my cup of tea however, HH has messed up and put some people in awkward position especially those who may hail from the areas seen as they are sympathisers towards him. Someone mentioned late Sata as always knowing what was happening in the govt. Sata never disclosed or boasted about receiving classified information coz he knew / had better understanding of the implication for leakers

    • So, when there is violence by cadres, you want Lungu to instruct the police to stop violence. When your overzealous political leader literally commits treason, you want Lungu to fold his arms. Hakainde has become dangerously careless – he is now a danger to the country. If he has been advised that he needs some jail-time in order to become president – he needs to seriously re-evaluate his strategy.

  59. Problem we have per Zed is that presidents get so drunk and think that they’ll rule forever. KK thought so. Kafupi wanted to go for a third term and persecuted KK who is still alive. RB troubled Sata and Sata trouble RB and Sata is gone with RB around. Lungu is supposed to be in office according to Nigerian prophet and instead of spending his energy on development he wants to waste time to harass HH. You will achieve nothing. Didn’t Sata tell RB that he was going to have parallel ruling structures? Did Sata get intelligence briefing or not when in opposition. No seasoned OP will waste their time on your request. He or she knows that Lungu will be gone and HH will be next president. What charge will he lay on HH if he says that he was just joking to see Lungu’s reaction.

  60. After reading all above contributions, I am at loss with majority contributors which have missed cardinal points in this issue:
    1. The President has exceeded his Constitutional powers in directing ZP to investigate only HH without even mentioning origins of such “classified” information;
    2. Having said that, I am at loss to understand difference between this issue and disclosure of “classified” documents used in legal proceedings in the case of transfer of “instruments of power” between then Acting President and Vice President?
    3. After all, State Security Act relates not just to the “recipient” of “classified” information but, most importantly, to the origin of such information.

  61. The President is not bad, he needs to be supported by every one in order for our country to run better. we should give him support in all provinces. The issue is with court Judges. The chief Justice should work hard. If the judges are not working he should be given a provision to fire or send them off.
    There are cases that have stayed 6 to 10 years. Especially CHURCH CASES nothing is done. Some cases are not even difficult but just needed the court to guide the members. This system of saying adjournment should be avoided. come next week or adjourned to next year is not fair. I repeat Chief Justice should check supreme and High court case. So that a fair judgments should be taken to all Citizens.
