PRESIDENT Edgar Lungu’s political advisor Kaizar Zulu on Sunday night survived a near-fatal accident when his vehicle, a VX, hit into a perimeter wall at Munali roundabout. State House sources have disclosed that Zulu, who was in the company of an unnamed female ZNBC employee, escaped with minor injuries while the vehicle they were in was left extensively damaged (as seen in pictures).
Zulu, who is scheduled to travel today to meet the Head of State in London, did not pick up his mobile phone when phoned many times yesterday.
“The accident about Kaizar is very true. It happened last (Sunday) night near Munali Secondary School. He was with a lady from ZNBC, a camera lady and he was very drunk. If you see the vehicle, it’s extensively damaged. It was brought here (State House) this (Monday) morning but they emerged with minor injuries,” the source said. “Last month, he was in an accident in Chilanga during the by-election. This time, it was worse.”
Police spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo, when phoned, said: “I know nothing about it; please call the Lusaka police commissioner (Nelson Phiri)”, whose phone, by press time, went unanswered.
Since being appointed President Lungu’s political advisor, Zulu has been involved in scandal after another.
He, at one time, threatened to shoot Enock Kavindele Jr after a disagreement at Chrismar Hotel. A few months later, he verbally abused a woman at a fuel service station while drunk.
Zulu, without much care, later abused a female police officer during the Under 20 Africa Cup games in Lusaka in the presence of President Lungu.
Zulu was reported to Matero Police Station for the abuse but the matter was silently gotten rid of.
