Opposition United Progressive Party President Savior Chishimba’s master bedroom was raided by unknown people in the early hours of today who got away with his MacBook Air and a telemedicine laptop.
Speaking shortly after police officers from the forensics department concluded their search, Dr Chishimba stated that the raid was the work of state agents.
He did not however say where he was during the incident.
Dr Chishimba said, “The crime scene has been processed, but detectives are saying, “…this is complicated…it was professionally executed…” Surely, is this the Zambia of love, unity, peace and democracy? A security threat on one Zambian is a threat on all Zambians.”
He said he found one MacBook Air and an HP laptop and all key documents stolen from his master bedroom.
“They broke-in by cutting the burglar bars of the window. This is the work of the state to intimidate me, but I am not a coward,” he said.
Dr Chishimba said preliminary investigations clearly indicate that there is an insider who must have been used.
This person knows all the corners of the house and there are sufficient leads adding that this person has been part of the trailing and stalking that has been going on.
“It’s unbelievable that they reached the extent of opening the Holy Bible to search in the pages as well as the cover.
Wasn’t it enough to destroy all the wardrobes to steal laptops and key documents? They should have had respect unto YHWH. YHWH shall defend His Word in seven days,” Dr Chishimba said.
“Apart from the MacBook Air, the stealing of the telemedicine laptop by “hired” operatives is inhuman. This is a specialised laptop strictly for use in telemedicine consults by Zambian doctors using the cloud in the USA. Many lives have been saved in hospitals that were privileged to receive the support in 2015. I worked very hard to get support from the US Government.
The TeleMed laptop is almost US$20, 000.00. This is an embarrassment to our nation. Bring it back because you can’t use it – you will be seen from the USA. As for the MacBook, I have already deleted all the data remotely.”
