President Lungu accuses army officers of giving CVs to opposition

President Edgar Lungu has alleged that a number of senior officers from the Zambia Army, Zambia Air Force (ZAF) and Zambia National Service (ZNS) had submitted their CVs (curriculum vitae) to the opposition (UPND) prior to the 2016 presidential elections to be considered for appointment had the opposition won the elections


President Lungu said this on Monday morning at State House after swearing in Major General Benedict Kalinda as Deputy Zambia Air Force Commander.
President Lungu pointed out that some opposition political party members may be relatives or friends but that should not lead officers to be disloyal to the Government adding that he was aware that some senior officers from the three defence wings had submitted their CV’s to the opposition in 2016.
Major General Kalinda has replaced Major General Chintu Kapotwe who died in India a few weeks ago.
