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.
