THE Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) premises was yesterday packed with Patriotic Front (PF) members who went to give solidarity to the former first lady Esther Lungu who was accompanied by her husband, the former Republican President, Edgar Lungu.
Mrs Lungu was at the premises appearing for questioning over 15 flats that she owns and are suspected to be proceeds of crime.
The premises was also on high alert with police who kept vigil of the situation to ensure that law and order prevailed.
After almost a two hour long questioning session of Mrs Lungu by DEC, lawyer Makebi Zulu addressed the media and said that the matter had been settled.
“We are happy and consider this matter settled, unless there is a witch hunt going on. We do not expect anything to come up. So if anything comes ups, we will know that it is a witch hunt ,” he said.
Mr Zulu said that it was well known that the former first lady Mrs Lungu had acquired the land through an offer and that she started developing it in 2015.
“It is not strange that a person of her stature can own such. So as earlier started, she acquired the property a genuine as anyone could and so this matter has been settled,” he said.
