Americans acknowledge Zambian State House Drug Report as Rumours Of Lungu’s Impending Arrest Swirl.

By a correspondent

It is increasingly becoming clear that the Americans are weighing their options on the possibilities of arresting President Edgar Lungu for drug trafficking related offences that have rocked Zambia the past few days.

The US Embassy has released what Zambian Government insiders view as an encrypted and subtle signal that Lungu is on their active radar watch list, and may be questioned when the globe trotting leader visits U.S. for the annual UN General Assembly, later this month. The possibilities of the Presidential Gulfstream being searched and seized may not be a remote potentiality.

The expression and emphasis of fraternal solidarity and bilateral disposition between the two countries in the American Embassy  statement, to a scandal riddled government at such a time, sends alarm signals to many an observer that understands Donald Trump’s America.

“The U.S. Embassy is aware of reports in reference to a closed legal case tried in the U.S. court system. For further information, please refer to the U.S. Department of Justice’s press statement.

The United States and Zambia enjoy a strong bilateral relationship, including extensive cooperation on issues of mutual interest in health, wildlife conservation, economic development, education and law enforcement sectors. We look foward to welcoming President Lungu to New York for the U.N General Assembly later this month”, read the American Embassy  statement.

Unlike in Zambia where government interference is rife on law enforcement agencies, the United States investigative agencies are fiercely independent and backed by law, which government has no power to alter or influence without dire consequences.

To that score, the likely scenario is the FBI may apply sophisticated technology to covertly  review the Gulfstream’s interiors once it lands in the U.S. and if evidence of criminality is found, the U.S. using their  Justice system may lift the diplomatic immunity on Lungu and his luxury jet.

    Unlike Chiefs from other regions, the Eastern Chiefs have responded to this nonsense in very clear terms. One would have hoped other Chiefs would have also reprimanded their subjects when they spewed nonsense and all the mess we are in now would have been avoided. But do not add your stuff ba Watchdog – did Senior Chief Nzamane refer to the President in his reprimand of Edwin Sakala?
