Nation to be informed on how The Post acquired the Presidential speech


INSPECTOR-GENERAL of police Stella Libongani says police have instituted investigations over the leakage of President Lungu’s speech to the ceremonial opening of the fifth session of the 11th National Assembly to The Post newspaper.

Ms Libongani said in an interview yesterday that police have instituted investigations to establish how The Post newspaper acquired the Presidential speech, which was a secret document and caused its publication.
“We have commenced investigations into this leakage and we will soon update the nation on the outcome of this matter,” Ms Libongani said.
She said progress reports into the ongoing investigations will be made known to the public from time to time.
The Post newspaper published parts of the presidential speech last Friday before it was read in the House by the head of State.




  1. Media Houses are given presidential speeches but are advised or told not to publish until it’s been read by the head of state. The post published it before the Head of state presented it to parliament. That’s why it’s now being treated as such. ( Its a crime)

  2. Gustone, for one to work on reducing leakages she or he has to track how the information was leaked. So we can safely say that they are working on reducing the leakages right now
