 Scheme to lift former presidents’ immunity Ill- conceived

By ALICE NACHILEMBE
Zambian DNA Spokesperson Spuki Mulemwa says that the desire of some section of society demanding to stripe off former Heads of State’s immunity is an ill- conceived scheme and unacceptable.

Mr Mulemwa said this call should be put to an end because there are no justifiable grounds to do so except to humiliate, embarrass and fix them in an effort to paint them black.

He said this also dents the country’s image to the international community.

“We are fully aware of some section of society that are now agitating for the removal of the sixth President Edgar Lungu’s immunity on baseless grounds,” he said.

Mr Mulemwa said the lifting of former President Lungu’s immunity can only be initiated by the sitting President Mr Hakainde Hichilema hence he should not succumb to such ill-conceived demands.

He has urged the Zambian people to focus their energies on issues of national unity and development in an effort to improve their livelihood instead of wasting time on none beneficial issues.
