Power was cut at the Edgar Lungu house …before ´thieves´ broke in and stole TVs

10th August 2022

Disturbing details are emerging that there was a power cut at President Edgar Lungu´s Ibex house early Monday morning about 1am before suspected ´thieves´ broke in and stole two television sets valued at about US$5000 in the bizarre robbery says the family spokesman Raphael Nakachinda.


“We have established that there was a power cut that coincided with the staged robbery at the house of the sixth President on the day of the robbery,” said Nakachinda who is also the spokesperson of the former ruling Patriotic Front (PF).


Another bizarre development is the fact that from the usual detail of at least six uniformed and armed police, on the material day of the alleged staged robbery the number was drastically slashed to only two officers without.


“You must know that the premises of the house of the former President is big so one officer was doing the rounds while the other officer guarded the main entrance,” Nakachinda said, “we don’t know why the number was reduced.”


Nakachinda concluded that the ground had been made ´fertile´ for an alleged staged break in whose reason remains unknown but also coincides with the absence of President Edgar Lungu who flew to South Africa the previous day for a routine medical check-up facilitated by the government.


Ray Hamoonga, the spokesman of the Zambia police has confirmed the incident without giving further information while the Inspector General of police Remmy Kajoba has chosen silence.


Many Zambians have remained shocked that the sixth President of Zambia became the first President in over 58 years to be ´robbed´ since independence in 1964.


They have called on the government to step up security for the former President whose wife Mrs Esther Lungu was in the house during the black out and the ´raid. ´


The President´s family, his wife Mrs Lungu, son Daliso and daughter including his son in law the husband of Tasila have been interviewed by law enforcement already on separate occasions.


This is a developing story that has stolen the news headlines in Zambia as many remain shocked and speculation rises.

  1. Why doesn’t ECL have an electric power generator at his residence? Who choose that premises for ECL? Was there security assessment done for that house? What happened to the security system?( cameras, alarms)…what type of external doors and locks are fitted at the premises? Does ECL only depend on security provided by the state? Where were the police? Have the police arrested the 2 police officers as suspects?

    If truly those were the theives who broke ECL residence, then they are PF thieves…They are neither UPND, UNIP nor UNIP.

  2. This childish behaviour is now becoming very evident that there is something very wrong with these people speaking about this very ambiguous issue we find our selves in. One moment you advise us with loud shouts that he is active next you cry you want him to have benefits accrued as past leader. Which is which. Is he actively engaged in politics , please answer thie question clearly.

    Due to this ambiguity we are unsure of the Status of the former head of State. Please leave this man alone to rest.

  3. DOES THE PF CARE FOR ITS PRESIDENT? PEOPLE LIKE BARMAN AND BONANZA SHOULD HAVE CONTRIBUTED RESOURCES TO BUY ECL A GENSET, THAT IS IF ECL HIMSELF DOES HAVE MONEY. BONANZA AND BARMAN ARE BUSY “DEFILING” CHURCHES WITH THEIR LUCRE TO THE EXTENT WHERE THE ARCHBISHOP HAS BANNED THEIR TYPE OF CHURCH BEHAVIOUR. LUNGU IS YOUR POLITICAL gODFATHER TO WHOM YOU OWE A LOT. TAKE GOOD CARE OF HIM INSTEAD OF POINTING ACCUSING FINGERS AT OTHERS.

  4. There is serious security breach at the residence of the former Head of State. It appears they don’t even keep a dog which could have alerted the security in case the chose to sleep on duty. We can also speculate that the policemen guarding the premises are senior suspects. No ordinary thief can steal from such a facility
