EXTEND INVESTIGATIONS TO LUNGU, NOT JUST ON ‘JUNIOR THIEVES’ WHO SERVED UNDER HIM, CHARGES PANJI

Colonel Panji Kaunda says the investigating wings should extend their investigations towards former president Edgar Lungu, and not just confine themselves to the thieves who served under him.

Speaking with Daily Revelation, Col Panji said president Lungu must be made to explain how he accumulated so much wealth during the time he served as President, adding that the Electoral Commission of Zambia (ECZ) must also release the assets declarations by presidential candidates to help Zambians know the asset ratios accumulated over time.

“Everybody must be investigated, including me. If I am found wanting I should be investigated. The ECZ must release those figures because it’s the only way we are going to know what Lungu has 11 years ago and what he has now,” he said,” Col Panji said. “It’s the law. It’s the right of Zambians to ask those that they have employed. Remember these are our workers, if a worker becomes more richer than the employer you must ask how?”

Col Panji however, cautioned the investigating wings to…continue reading here

  1. MR PANJI KAUNDA, WHAT YOU HAVE SAID IS STRAIGHT TO THE POINT, BUT THE BOTTLENECK THAT HH HAS CREATED FOR HIMSELF IS THAT THE BULK OF GOVERNMENT RIGHT NOW STILL HAS ALLEGIANCE TO LUNGU NATURALLY BECAUSE IT IS LUNGU WHO APPOINTED THEM TO THOSE POSITIONS, AS WE SPEAK, LUNGU IS THE DEFACTO PRESIDENT BECAUSE LIKE IT OR NOT HE IS GETTING FEEDBACK FROM ALL INSTITUTIONS OF GOVERNANCE ON A DAILY BASIS, IT IS BECAUSE OF THIS THAT NON OF THESE INSTITUTIONS CAN DIRECT THEIR INVESTIGATIONS TO HIM BECAUSE THEY OWE HIM THEIR JOBS, SO THE EARLIER UPND MOVES THE BETTER BECAUSE WE HAVE A VERY IMPATIENT POPULATION AS IT WHERE. UPND HAS GIVEN US ENOUGH TALK BUT IT IS NOW TIME FOR ACTION.

  2. Investigations can start immediately and don’t hv to wait lifting of immunity. It’s prosecution which needs lifting of immunity. Lt Col Panji Kaunda is on firm ground here.

  3. I respect other people’s opinions, but my own is that these former presidents should be left alone, I say so because these investigations come at the expense of the tax payers who were already disadvantaged by the previous regimes.This has happened in our country before and nothing tangible has been reported to the public of having been achieved. This also takes away from our presidency as Africans. It simply implies that all African Presidents are thieves who should be investigated each time they leave off. This vicious cycle must be broken

  4. Tough call only the principled can make and it comes at a great cost. This in my opinion is something to be considered as a last resort when evidence is so overwhelming such that not dealing with it just makes it ridiculously impossible to ignore or govern properly .

    This is because the trauma of seeing a nation being torn apart in trying to understand and coming to grips with this reality is still Devastating. For instance, during the period when the previous Zambian Presidents were arrested or made to go through the process of humiliation and finally being vindicated. Something broke here that could not be fixed. This tore into the very fabric of who we are. Especially, when it was later discovered that no crime was committed.

    So far we have heard of a lot of speculations given out, but no actual official position on offenses.

    On the other hand we have seen how other former Presidents in order countries who abused their offices are in court giving an account for their actions. So it’s not out of the ordinary. But yet, still sad. Truth be told we all have an emotional attachment because a President does affect our individual lives whether positively or negatively.

    However, When action is taken out of principle, it removes vindictiveness. Personally it would be the most unfortunate thing to see. it’s not one of those exciting things to watch but would be a necessity if established to be true.
    After all it is understood that the level of accountability in this office is very high. The Chief defender of the constitution, should be the first to respect the same constitution which they ask all other citizens to uphold.

    I guess that is why the removal of immunity of a President was included in the constitution to deal with those who would want to take advantage of the situation.
    Not a very easy topic to talk about. Needs soberness and right standing. Very sad ending this would be indeed.
