I didn’t say that I control the intelligence, said opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) Hakainde Hichilema whose residence was raided Tuesday morning by armed Police Officers.

And UPND has urged its members to stay alert adding that the moves to search its leader and Secretariat were the consequences of ‘winning’ an election by 1%.

Speaking at his New Kasama residence in Lusaka before the Police moved in to search his premises, Hichilema said the allegations against him were unfounded. He told a Radio Phoenix reporter that she should verify as the alleged remarks were made at a media briefing that was attended by other journalists from various media organisations.

Hichilema says President Edgar Lungu was just after locking him up and was now using falsehoods to achieve that.

The Police who surrounded Hichilema’s Residence in New Kasama, Kabulonga and UPND Headquarters around 6am searched the premises. The Police were looking for documents in relation to the security intelligence leaks.

Police Spokesperson Charity Chanda Munganga disclosed that the search were part of the Police investigations into the matter in which the Daily Nation carried a story quoting Hichilema stating that he has been receiving intelligence information meant for the Republican President.

UPND Cadres attacked ZNBC News crew and Daily Nation reporters who rushed to cover the search at Hichilema’s Kasama Residence. The Cadres according to ZNBC News hurled insults at the Journalists in the full view of the Police armed in riot gear.

Government Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili condemned the attacking of the Journalists who went to cover the searching of HH’s residence. Kambwili said Hichilema must cage his cadres.

And UPND has reacted to the search saying whatever the Police are looking for is not there.

On its official facebook page the party says: “Whatever it is they are looking for is not there. Stay alert ladies and gentlemen. These are scared little men. These are the consequences of ‘winning’ an election by 1%. You are so insecure. Shame.”
