Zambia: State agents after opposition leader Saviour Chishimba’s life


Opposition United Progressive Party (UPP) president Saviour Chishimba is being trailed by state security agents some few days after he threatened to expose the rampant corruption in President Edgar Lungu’s government. Dr. Chishimba has also threatened to seek legal action to block the looting of State enterprises by the PF government.

He disclosed that some vehicles have been detailed to be trailing his movements and that few days ago he was pursued up to the entrance of his gates by unknown people but when confronted by his security team they claimed that they had come to join the opposition party.

“A few days ago, my security team pursued the pursuers who trailed us up to the gate. The ill trained agents were taken by surprise when my security team blocked their vehicle – as a cover up, the visibly shaken agents said they had come ‘to join UPP’. How can they join UPP by trailing me to my residence?” wondered Dr. Chishimba.

In spite of the threats on his life, he has vowed not to relent and adds that the audio and documentary evidence on plunder of resources was overwhelming but he could not be an amateur to keep such at his home.

Dr. Chishimba is a PF founder member and one of the party’s first members of parliament but resigned his Kasama Central seat due to rampant corruption in the PF and later formed the UPP.
