Police have opened a docket against PF chairperson for local government Given Lubinda and party secretary General Wynter Kabimba in connection with the leaked email.
In the email, Lubinda was briefing Kabimba that the party had ´so far´ received $ 45 Million from ´friends´ in Afghanistan and Taiwan.
Lubinda was also expressing his reservations to the party´s planned project of rounding up all unemployed youths and sending them to war torn countries as peace keepers after a short training in the military.
He also talked about the plans to demolish some residential areas in Lusaka so that land can be given to some Taiwanese and Afghan businessmen funding the party.
When the email was published on this website and reproduced by public media and radio stations across the country, PF leader Michael Sata ordered Lubinda to report to the police.
Lubinda, in the company of journalists, reported the matter to the police in which he claimed that his email had been hacked. He said the contents of the mail were the work of a hacker.
But latest information indicates the police are very, very suspicious of Lubinnda and have instead opened a counter docket.
Sources say the police have asked Zambia Information and Communication Authority (ZICTA) to study the emails and that it was the preliminary findings from ZICTA that prompted the police to open the docket against Lubinda and Kabimba.
When the matter was just reported, Kabimba didn´t deny receiving the email but said ask the author. He only denied receiving the email four days later in a arranged TV interview.
Police sources say this is an international matter and Interpol will be involved to get to its bottom.
Other information indicate the the Sampa Lubinda was referring to as candidate for Matero is Michael Sata´s nephew Miles Sampa. He has been the main financial mobiliser for pf.
Meanwhile, other information received indicate that part of the land that is earmarked for selling to Taiwanese and Afghan PF financiers is the Chisenga wet lands in in Luapula province bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo.
The Taiwanese want these wetlands to grow rice for export though they are telling the PF that the rice will be for feeding Zambians. They are also arguing that the rice fields will create plenty of jobs to ordinary Zambians
