Leaked Document Claims President Sata Met with Assassins

President of Zambia Michael Sata is alleged to have held a meeting with a group of Lebanese assassins for hire for unknown reasons.

The revelations were made in an article published in the U.K. newspaper The Guardian, which obtained a purported leaked letter dated 2 July 2013, which claims that Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe had attempted to hire the assassins to murder South African President Jacob Zuma and his advisor, Lindiwe Zulu, who had been assigned to Zimbabwe to attempt to lobby for a delay in the elections.

A spokesperson of Mugabe’s ruling ZANU-PF party has dismissed the leaked document as false, commenting “it’s all rubbish and hogwash to think a head of state like president Mugabe would set up something like that. We have a disagreement with Lindiwe Zulu but it would not go to that extent.
