Zambian President Edgar Lungu has not sneaked out of the country as alleged by his critics but was on a short vacation within the country, the presidency said on Friday.

On Wednesday, a lawmaker who is one of Lungu’s fierce critics, alleged that the Zambian leader had sneaked out of the country for South Africa without the government informing the nation of his whereabouts.


But presidential spokesperson Amos Chanda said Lungu has not sneaked out of the country but has gone on a short working vacation in the eastern part of the country.

He said officials in his office were sending him work whilst there, adding that he decided to take a working vacation because he did not want to be disturbed by people wanting to see him. Enditem
