Patriots for Economic Progress (PeP) President Sean Tembo says President Hakainde Hichilema squarely responsible for yesterday’s break-in at Former President Lungu’s house in Ibex Hill, Lusaka.
Mr Tembo said that President Hichilema’s failure to provide state security to his predecessor is premised on the deep-rooted hatred, malice and contempt which he habors towards Former President Lungu.
“Even retired Army Commanders are provided with armed soldiers to guard their residences for their entire lives, so why a retired Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces can’t be entitled to the same? We wish to put it on record that any harm or loss of property that is occasioned on Former President Lungu and his family, because of lack of state security, will be placed squarely on the shoulders of President Hakainde Hichilema,” he said.
Yesterday, Police reported that the house of former President Edgar Lungu was broken by robbers and stole two television sets worth K66, 000
And Mr Tembo has since called upon President Hichilema to immediately apologize to former President Lungu and his family for Government’s negligence and failing to provide adequate state security to Former President Lungu.
He said Government should also immediately indemnify and compensate Former President Lungu for the stolen property which includes two television sets.
