Police grab car from RB’s doctor, plan to arrest him for giving HH medical report

Under instructions from State House, police today (Monday) stormed a private hopital in Lusaka called Victoria and grabbed a vehicle belonging to former president Rupiah Banda’ s doctor.

The police also plan to arrest doctor Shaileni Desai and charge him with theft of motor vehicle.

Doctor Desai was employed as presidential physician under the RB administration and, like most senior State House staff, was sold the vehicle he was using as per conditions of service.

All State House aides were sold the vehicles they were using as part of the conditions of service.

The real reason is that president Sata is upset with Dr. Desai for giving UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema a medical report when he was tear-gassed by police a few weeks ago.

It was Dr. Desai who attended to HH after he was teargassed by police when he was invited for questioning over the militia the PF is said to be training in Sudan.

Dr. Desai also gave HH a sick note when police tried to arrest him.
