Lungu ‘captured’ by drug baron – Kambwili

Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili has alleged that the Zambian Presidency has been captured by a convicted drug baron.

Kambwili says Lusaka businessman and President Edgar Lungu’ close associate Valden Findlay is on the FBI wanted list for drug related offences and has wondered why the head of state has continued associating himself with him.

He told journalists at a media briefing this morning that Findlay was once arrested and convicted for drug peddling under the Kaunda regime.

Kambwili says it is surprising that President Lungu has been moving with a person whose character is questionable.

He said it will not be surprising if Findlay has been using the presidential challenger plane to peddle drugs.

He wants Lungu to explain the nature of business he does with Findlay.

Kambwili adds that he has made the revelation to protect the institution of the Presidency.

He advised President Lungu to stop his association with Findlay in national interest.

The NDC leader has since urged the FBI to pursue Findlay.
