Sata said in a statement issued by his personal assistant for press and public relations George Chellah that it was not an easy undertaking to infiltrate an opposition political leader.
“In fact, those officers who are working with Mr. Hichilema and the UPND deserve to be commended because it’s not an easy undertaking to infiltrate an opposition political leader and later on start functioning with him,” he said. “Having spent 10 years in opposition myself, I know what I am talking about. These revelations from him confirm that my intelligence officers are working very hard and we can even deploy some more to collaborate with him if he so desires.”
President Sata reminded Hichilema that it was the job of the intelligence officers to collect, correlate and evaluate information in order to ensure that the government is always kept on track through working with people like him.
“Actually, it’s because of this same good working relationship he has with our intelligence and my relatives which makes the PF government to always be ahead of him,” said President Sata. “I thank Mr. Hakainde Hichilema
for publicly recognising the efforts being made by our intelligence service to serve this government and country better as prescribed in our laws.”
With such reports, one wonders whether President Sata has really advisors. One wonders whether the Director General of Intelligence Martin Mwanambale and George Chella are function or is it that Sata is getting his advise from the other structure.
