FAKE email messages have flooded social media with the latest attributed to Davis Chama announcing that President Edgar Lungu has suspended campaigns for the next three days.
Mr Chama, who is the secretary general of the Patriotic Front (PF), distanced himself from the reports and accused the opposition political parties of being behind the fabricated statement.
Yesterday, some online publications accused Mr Chama of informing all party members that President Lungu had decided to suspend his campaigns.
“All other party members are however encouraged to continue with the party activities and will accordingly be informed of the development and the venues for the President’s next political rallies and activities,” read part of the letter purported to be Mr Chama’s. He is alleged to have told members that the president would however continue working normally inside State House and all being well he may address some meetings this weekend as will be advised.
