THE Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has seized the property of a dead man, Suzyo Nyika whose remains were exhumed, forcing his widow to take legal action.

Mr Nyika is believed to be former Republican President Edgar Lungu’s close associate.

According to a petition filed in the Lusaka High Court by Lusenga Mulongoti Advocates, Ms Thelma Maunga has challenged ACC’s action to seize the property of her late husband, Mr Nyika, who cannot reasonably defend himself, thus, contravening Article 16 of the Constitution of Zambia. To Page 3

Ms Maunga contends that her husband was never cautioned for having committed any crime nor was he ever indicted for any criminal offence before any competent court.
