IAttorney General Musa Mwenya has reiteratedthat PF secretary general Edgar Lungu risked being charged with treason.
Mwenye says the meeting which Lungu convened on 29th October during which he even handed over instruments of power to Acting President Guy Scott was illegal and could even have been arrested and charged with treason together with other ministers. Mwenye says Lungu’s power ended with the death of Sata on 28th October.
Lungu has differed with Acting President Guy Scott over the mode of choosing the party’s Presidential candidate in the forthcoming by election. Lungu has meanwhile demanded that Scott returns the instruments of power. He has maintained that he unwillingly surrendered power to Scott because of the earlier threats of treason.
