Patriotic Front (PF) member of the central committee Raphael Nakacinda has accused the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) of trying to institutionalize poverty through the summoning of former first lady Esther Lungu.

 Mr Nakachinda who called upon both local and international media to follow with interest the case says the continued harassment of the former first family has potential to dent the country’s democratic image.

 He further called on well-meaning Zambians to turn up in number to offer solidarity as Mrs Lungu will be appearing before DEC.

“In this country if we continue to inculcate that kind of thinking it means we are rendering our people more or less impoverish and they have no capacity to work hard, generate income and invest,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Zambia police warned members of the public that are calling for the unlawful assembly at the Drug Enforcement Commission following the Summoning of the Former First Lady Madam Esther Lungu.

 Inspector General of Police (IG) Lemmy Kajoba in a statement said, the police service was aware of the recordings where well known people are challenging, wanting to beat the police and planning to cause mayhem by bringing students from the Copperbelt.

 Mr Kajoba warned that Zambia Police Service will not allow any person to break the law with impunity adding that such shall be dealt with.

 He furthermore stated that enough police officers have been deployed on the route from Copperbelt to Lusaka to ensure that no bus or vehicle carrying suspected protesters will be allowed to come to Lusaka.
