OP officers search GBM’s office

Some Officers from Office of the President Special Division last night searched the Office of the Minister of Defense at Cabinet Office. President Michael Sata is reported to be worried that the former Minister of Defense may expose a military equipment procurement deal with China that President Sata personally benefited.
The deal includes the procurement of 6 Zambia Airforce Fighter Jets.
An intelligence source very close to the happenings say the resignation of GBM has given President Sata sleepless nights.
” When the President replaced GBM with Edgar Lungu there were specific instructions that Lungu should not touch anything in the office. So last night our officers went into the Minister’s office looking for documentation that relates to the procurement of Fighter Jets. At first we thought the President wanted to link it to GBM but we have just discovered it may touch the Presidency” the source said.
