Lungu Going To Court Over Land In Swaziland
Swaziland News has reported that President Lumgu is being taken to court by Sean T. Tembo – President of the Patriots for Economic Progress (PeP).
The PeP President has called for the removal of Edgar Lungu over allegations of corruption and abuse of office.
Sean Tembo said as the opposition party, they strongly believe President Edgar Lungu violated provisions of the Anti-Corruption Act that restrict any public officer from receiving a gift. “Basically we took the matter to the Constitutional Court of Zambia.
Our contention is that by receiving the gift, the President violated the Anti-Corruption Act of 2012, which restrict any public officer from receiving a gift. We are seeking a declaration from the court that the receiving of the gift was unconstitutional and illegal,” he said Court documents in our possession suggests that Sean T. Tembo told the court that on or round May 2018, information reached the public domain that the President of the Republic of Zambia Edgar Chagwa Lungu received land as a gift in the Kingdom of eSwatini formerly known as Swaziland.
The land that was presented to the Zambian President as a “gift” is situated at Nkonyeni, Sidvokodvo about 50 kilometers away from Mbabane, capital city of the Kingdom of eSwatini.
It was previously owned by Inyatsi Properties, a company with links to Inyatsi Construction that has been benefiting multi-million tenders in the Kingdom of eSwatini and Zambia.
This Swaziland News publication subsequently published an investigative story that links the President to a huge Inyatsi syndicate that involves King Mswati, Swaziland Prime Minister Sibusiso Barnabas Dlamini, the late powerful businessman Victor Gamedze and Inyatsi Director Michello Shakantu among others.
Inyatsi Group Holdings operates in three separate divisions in Zambia being Inyatsi Construction Ltd, Inyatsi Roads and Inyatsi Buildings Ltd.
On another note, our sources in Zambia disclosed that moves to impeach President Edgar Lungu are in the process over serious allegations of corruption and abuse of office among others.
“There is already a motion of impeachment against him awaiting National Assembly Speaker’s go ahead” said one of our sources in Zambia.
