Filed under: Breaking News,Politics |

Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo has rubbished claims by Lusaka Mayor Miles Sampa that he was abducted by known PF thugs, saying “the country that His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu is governing is peaceful and stable.”

Sampa told the BBC yesterday that a group of PF cadres involved in illegal land dealings waylaid him on his way back from a fact-finding mission regarding land disputes in Matero on Monday.

He further disclosed that he had reported the matter to police but Lusambo says there is no case of kidnapping filed by anyone at any police station in Lusaka.

“I have been alerted to a news story doing rounds on international media platforms regarding a statement issued by His Worship the Mayor of Lusaka Councillor Miles Sampa to the effect that he was kidnapped by some known elements while undertaking his official duties in the City,” Lusambo wrote on his Facebook page this morning.

“As Lusaka Province Minister, I feel duty bound to set the record straight and allay any fears that Lusaka might be unsafe for residents and visitors unlike. I wish to state that our beautiful City remains peaceful as ever and our law enforcement agencies have continued conducting their normal duties. There is and there has never been any cause for alarm. There is no case of kidnapping filed by anyone at any police station in Lusaka or anywhere else across the country.

“The country that His Excellency President Edgar Chagwa Lungu is governing is peaceful, stable and everyone can freely move across this beautiful country. As a Capital City, we mirror the entire aspirations of the nation and it is important that the international community continues to view Lusaka as a haven of peace as it has always been known.

“Our resolve is to keep attracting local and international investors to Lusaka in our unwavering pursuit for job creation and prosperity for all.
It is therefore important that I forthwith distance the good people of this great City of Lusaka from the narrative that could be created with this episode.”

Lusambo further stated that those in leadership have a moral duty to portray exemplary traits that do not betray the collective trust and faith that people have placed in them.
