Former MMD Minister Lungwangwa Shocked by Police Raid of His Farm

Former Communication and Transport minister Professor Geoffrey Lungwangwa says he has been left in total shock following a police search for guns at his farmhouse in Lusaka West on Wednesday.

Prof Lungwangwa, who is who is also MMD Nalikwanda member of parliament said he was shocked at the search because he had never been involved in life threatening activities.

“I have sworn to defend and protect the Constitution of Zambia and that means there is no  way  I can ever conceive getting involved in activities that disturb the peace of this country in any way, and it was extremely shocking to be searched on those kinds of grounds,” Prof Lungwangwa said.

“I have never in my life been involved in activities of sabotage; neither do I belong to any organisation that can be probably considered to be suspicious. Why would I honestly conceive such a thought of concealing arms? What for?”

Prof Lungwangwa said even though he had attended the Barotse National Council (BNC) meeting at which a resolution was made for Western Province to secede from Zambia, he was not a member of any of the groups that were calling for secession.

“The BNC meeting that took place, I think all the members of parliament that come from Western Province were officially invited to go the and attend the meeting. Myself and other MPs we went there on the basis of that invitation,” he explained.
