HH gives Lungu 48 hours ultimatum to locate owners of 48 houses 

…………. head of state directs Kampyongo to ensure matter is probed

By Staff Reporter

OPPOSITION United Party for National Development has given President Edger Lungu 48 hours ultimatum to locate the owners of the 48 mansions.

Hichilema has also called on the PF to stop insulting the intelligence of Zambians on the recent case of who owns the 48 mansions in Lusaka’s Chalala area.

In his Facebook posting this morning Hichilema questioned how President Lungu and his PF regime know the saboteur ‘who cut one tiny electricity pole costing about K300 in some rural part of Southern Province, but cannot know who built 48 multi million worth of flats right in the capital city?’

“We are giving Mr. Lungu 48 hours to locate the owner of the 48 mansions and bring the culprit to book. We can’t buy the nonsense being peddled that they failed to identify the owner. Properties, particularly land, has a proper paper trail,” Said Hichilema.

Meanwhile, President Lungu has instructed Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo to ensure the case regarding the 48houses is probed further.

Kampyongo told the media at State House this morning.

“As much as the anti-corruption doesn’t fall under the ministry of home affairs he has instructed us to collaborate with the ACC to insure that the matter which is under public debate regarding the 48 houses is probed further,” said Kampyongo.
