Former president Rupiah Banda has been summoned to appear before the police on monday March 18, 2013.
The former president will be questioned by officers from the regular police, Anti-Corription Commission, Drug Enforcement Commission and the secret police (OP).
Mr. Banda has been ordered to appear at the DEC headquarters at 10 hours.
The former president’s immunity from prosecution was stripped last friday after 80 MPs from the 158-member house voted for the motion. Four MPS who include finance minister Alexander Chikwanda abstained from voting.
Defence Minister Geoffrey Mwamba did not participate in the motion.
Information is emerging that the move to arrest Rupiah Banda is the panic by some factions within PF that a presidential bye-election is imminent owing to the fast failing health of president Michael Sata. According to reliable sources, Hakainde Hichilema will also be arrested in the next few days over some trumped up charges as well.
