Kasonde Fiercely Denies Calling Lungu A Thief
Former Law Association of Zambia President Linda Kasonde has denied calling President Edgar Lungu a thief.
Some news reports indicate that Ms Linda said Zambians do not scrutinize the leaders they vote for and that is why they end up even voting for thieves.
This was allegedly said when Ms. Kasonde featured as a discussant during the Levy Mwanawasa Memorial Lecture recently at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre.
But in a statement issued this morning, Ms Kasonde said at no time did she utter those words.
She said not only have words that she did not say been attributed to her but also the actual remarks that she made have been taken out of context.
