Former President Edgar Lungu

Former president Edgar Lungu has received what he calls disturbing information that Police plan to ambush, abduct and detain in the middle of the night.

Lungu says he wonders why President Hichilema has no regard for the office of the former president and wants to embrass him.
The former President who has been on limelight of late due to his political activities disclosed in a statement below made available to Zambian Eye this evening:

President Hichilema addressing end of 2022 press conference at State House.

Fellow Citizens,

Yesterday, I received disturbing information, indicating that the Zambia Police Service has opened 25 dockets against me based on formal complaints from UPND members in Lusaka. To that effect, the police are under instructions to arrest me in the dark of the night any day by surprise!
My question is, why is President Hakainde Hichilema and the Zambia Police Inspector General planning and mobilizing to ambush me at night, abduct, embarrass, and forcefully detain me like a hardcore criminal?
Where is the respect for the office of the former President in Zambia today if a sitting president can endorse a malicious ambush and barbaric arrest of a former head of state in the fashion l hear?
Wouldn’t issuing a police call-out suffice as per legal procedure? What is the motivation and goal behind this night ambush at my residence on me? Why this disrespect of the law and the office of former president?
Since transitioning to being a former Head of State of this country, I have been subjected to numerous unconstitutional actions by the state, from being barred from my simple morning workouts to being denied the right to travel, and now to being prevented from moving and making courtesy calls to anyone. I am practically under “house arrest” for no reason.
My appeal is straightforward! “Call me, and I will make myself available any day, any time during daylight hours.”
As far as I am aware, I have not committed any crime that would warrant the government, through the police, to start scheming against me in this manner.
I am deeply concerned about President Hichilema’s disregard for the “Rule of Law” and “Constitutional Democratic Values” by weaponizing law enforcement agencies against law-abiding citizens who criticize his leadership and governance. Please, let us defend our peace, democracy and constitution!
May God bless Zambia.
Edgar Chagwa Lungu
Sixth Republican President of Zambia.
