Robbers yesterday broke into MMD presidential aspirant Nevers Mumba’s rented house at Fallsway Villas along Thabo Mbeki Road in Lusaka and stole personal documents a laptop and about US$2,800.
Mumba, who is former High Commissioner to Canada, accused the government of scheming to obliterate his MMD presidential ambitions.
He accused the state of being behind the alleged break-in, which he said occured between 02:00 and 06:00 hours.
“There has been a consistent plan to harass me, to intimidate me, to injure me and to harm me. I am aware of individuals that have been planted to find anything about and against me that they will present to the President to use against me,” Mumba said.
“I am aware that some of my family members have been approached and offered money to discredit me in the media and also to find a way in which they could expose me to danger. My conclusion as a mature person and a person who worships God is that this President Sata and this government have evil intentions against my life. I am aware that this government has vowed to ensure that I do not become president of the MMD and a number of these activities are aimed exactly at that…to discredit me before the Zambian people by raising false allegations.”
” Obviously their goal was to have access to my personal information, banking information, my network of friends and this truly smells the work of state operatives,” he said.
