Former Zambian President Edgar Lungu is taking legal action against the removal of his retirement benefits, as reported by local media. Last month, these privileges were revoked due to his return to active politics, leading to the closure of his office, withdrawal of government-provided vehicles, and redeployment of staff and security.

In court documents obtained by News Diggers, Lungu claims the government’s move violates his fundamental rights. He argues that other retired public officials faced no such restrictions.

Nevertheless, the Attorney General, Mulilo Kabesha, countered that reinstating benefits while Lungu is involved in politics would be against the law, according to local Diamond TV. (Credit: BBC as the source)
