United Party for National Development (UPND) president Hakainde Hichilema has accused government of intimidating him.
Mr.Hichilema has told Qfm News that he feels intimidated by government’s move to send Zambia Air Force (ZAF) helicopters to fly over his ranch and house located between Batoka and Choma in southern province.
Mr. Hichilema says he received information soon after the Livingstone Magistrate Court discharged him yesterday in a case in which he was accused of proposing violence during the by-election in 2012 that two ZAF helicopters were hovering low over his ranch with people taking overview pictures and a video recording of the premises.
Mr. Hichilema has since wondered what the ZAF helicopters were looking for at his ranch premises.
The UPND leader says the move by the Government to send ZAF helicopters to take pictures of his ranch amounts to committing a crime against a citizen.
