There is no parallel intelligence structure led by Xavier Chungu – Sakeni

Chief government spokesperson Kennedy Sakeni has refuted as lies media reports suggesting that the Patriotic Front (PF) government is running a parallel intelligence structure in the Office of the President Special Division headed by former intelligence chief Xavier Chungu.
Mr. Sakeni, who is also Information and Broadcasting Minister, says such media reports are only being spread by people who are enemies of the PF government.
Mr. Sakeni has affirmed that it is not possible for the PF government to run such institutions of such nature as the intelligence service outside government wings as the media reports are suggesting.
He has explained that there are capable and qualified men and women in the country’s security agencies to handle all matters pertaining to the intelligence of the country and that there can not be a need that would require President Michael Sata to create a parallel intelligence structure in his office.
