Police last Friday night conducted a two hour search at President Edgar Lungu’s Special Assistant for Political Affairs Kaiser Zulu’s house where they recovered guns and ammunition.
The Police, from Headquarters conducted the search and recovered guns believed to be licenced at a time Mr Zulu was in detention at Woodlands Police Station.
Lusaka Police Commissioner Charity Katanga confirmed that investigations were extended to Mr. Zulu’s house in Woodlands where a search was carried out but did not disclose whether anything incriminating was found on his premises.
“We extended investigations to his house where we conducted a search in connection with the gun shooting.” said Ms. Katanga.
Officers at Woodlands have disclosed that Mr. Zulu who was arrested on Friday on allegations of threatening violence and firing gunshots in public was denied bond by police officers from Force Headquarters after they took over the case in unexplained circumstances.
Police officers close to the investigations yesterday said the officers who arrested Mr. Zulu were ready to release him on bond but that fresh instructions were given to keep him a little longer than normal until officers from Force Headquarters arrived.
“We just saw officers coming from Force Headquarters with instructions that he (Kaizer) cannot be released because there are new developments. We need to go and search his house in Woodlands
It is not clear what the police were looking for, but apparently did not find anything linking the State House official to State House.
Kaizer was released from detention at Lusaka’s Woodlands Police station where he spent a night in police cells following an altercation which led to the discharge of a firearm in public.
Mr. Zulu, who is President Edgar Lungu’s special assistant for political affairs was released around 10:30 hours yesterday on bond and was immediately driven away in a tinted Toyota Hilux registration number AAR 5749 after meeting all bond conditions. He is expected to appear in Court on 7th October, 2015.
Lusaka Police Commissioner Charity Katanga confirmed to the Sunday Nation that Mr. Zulu would appear in Court for the two offences of threatening violence contrary to section 90b of the Penal Code and failure to take precaution against causing possible injury or damage to property contrary to section 40 of the firearms Act Cap 111 of the laws of Zambia.
Mr Zulu was arrested on Friday around 11:00 hours after he reported to Woodlands Police Station where he was summoned to answer to allegations that he had threatened former vice-president Enoch Kavindele’s son Enoch Jr.
