Football admintrator Simata Simata has testified in the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court that Labour Party Leader Fresher Siwale told him that the Edgar Lungu he knew had died and the current President Edgar Changwa Lungu had taken up the deceased’s identify.
And Mukuba Secondary School head teacher told the court that President Edgar Lungu was a pupil at the school and wrote his forms three and five in 1974 and 1976 respectively, where he received an unsatisfactory nine in Maths and missed Physics.
This is in a case where Siwale is charged with defamation of President Lungu contrary byobthe Laws of Zambia.
It is alleged in this matter that Siwale on April 22, 2018, with intent to bring the name of President Edgar Lungu into ridicule, published defamatory matter by word of mouth to which he said, ‘The President of the Republic of Zambia is not the actual Edgar Chagwa Lungu but Jonathan Mutawale, he must be arrested for having three National Registration Cards, he is an identity thief’.
