Police in Lusaka have finally charged Fresher Siwale with defamation of PF president Edgar Lungu, 4 days after he was apprehended for calling Edgar Lungu an identity fraud.

Mr Siwale, the New Labour Party president, was on Tuesday afternoon arrested and detained for questioning Lungu’s identity.

Siwale was warned and cautioned at 16:40 hours on Friday before he was formally arrested in the presence of his lawyer Mulenga Mutamfwa of Keith Mweemba and Associates.

The opposition leader says Lungu is Jonathan Mutaware and not Edgar Chagwa Lungu, whom he claims is deceased.

Lungu’s real identity has come under scrutiny and there are reports of panic in his government and party.
