At ten hours today, Friday November 18, armed and plain clothed police officers raided former education minister Dora Siliya’ house in Lusaka.
The police produced a search warranty saying they are looking for stolen goods.
Siliya’s lawyer Sakwiba Sikota was at the scene trying to challenge the police who were in no compromising mood.
Siliya who is also the spokesperson for the former ruling party MMD was one of the most vocal critics of current ruler Michael Sata during the election period.
The police were not saying what kind of stolen property they were looking for.
On Thursday, the Commission of Inquiry appointed to investigate the sale of Zamtel to Lap Green of Libya reported that it has established that the transaction was fraudulent and illegal.
Dora Siliya was minister of communication when the transaction started.
Commission chairperson Sebastian Zulu said Zamtel was under valued at 38 Million United States-US Dollars, despite the company having a book value of 81 Million U.S Dollars.
The Commission further disclosed that the single sourcing of RP Capital to evaluate Zamtel was illegal.
