Drunkard Minister of Defence Edgar Lungu says he is not aware of any Zambia Air Force helicopters that were hovering over United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema’s ranch in Choma on Tuesday taking pictures.
As if anybody expected him to be aware and awake when such an operation ordered by ailing dictator Michael Sata is being undertaken, Mr. Lungu in his usual drunken state said he will find out the authenticity of the claims made by the UPND leader that two ZAF helicopters were seen by his workers taking pictures and a video recording of his property located between Batoka and Choma.
Mr. Lungu has told Qfm News in an interview that the ministry of Defence does not engage in political activities, forgetting that it is the same ZAF choppers that are normally used for delivering bribe relief food to areas where political campaigns are going on such as Zambezi West.
Obviously in his drunken state after taking subsided whiskey from some military barrack, Lungu said he would engage the Zambia Air Force Commander over Mr. Hichilema allegations.
Mr. Hichilema has accused government of trying to intimidate him by sending Zambia Air Force helicopters to his ranch.
Mr. Hichilema has accused government of intimidating him by sending Zambia Air Force (ZAF) helicopters to fly over his ranch and house located between Batoka and Choma in Southern province.
Mr. Hichilema said he received information soon after the Livingstone Magistrate Court discharged him in a case in which he was accused of proposing violence during the by-election in 2012 that two ZAF helicopters were hovering low over his ranch with people taking overview pictures and a video recording of the premises.
Mr. Hichilema has since wondered what the ZAF helicopters were looking for at his ranch premises.
The UPND leader says the move by the Government to send ZAF helicopters to take pictures of his ranch amounts to committing a crime against a citizen.
