Mr Chama said in an interview yesterday that making wild allegations that put the name of the President into disrepute will not be condoned.
“There is no need for anyone to associate the alleged shooting at the Post newspaper to President Lungu because what we should understand is that the Post Newspapers could have created a lot of enemies,” Mr Chama said.
He advised The Post newspapers management to allow the police to thoroughly investigate the alleged shooting so that the matter can be conclusively disposed of instead of dragging President Lungu’s name into it.
He said the alleged shooting incident attracts a lot of questions because of the manner that the witnesses have narrated it.
“I want to imagine that the one who did the shooting should have been in a helicopter or was flying above the newsroom of the Post newspaper,” Mr Chama said.
He said insinuations linking the President to the shooting will not solve the problems that the Post newspaper is facing because it is a fact that the media organisation could have created a lot of enemies in the course of its duties.
Mr Chama also wondered how someone could have managed to positon themselves and target the newspaper’s newsroom.
On Wednesday, the Post newspaper reported that a bullet had pierced through their newsroom causing panic among reporters who were present.
