Mr Phiri said the passport was not with the Immigration Department where the subpoena was served but with the Ministry of Health.
He said the Ministry of Health sent a medical doctor to deliver the passport with the information that it was submitted by the Immigration Department to facilitate Mr Kambwili’s evacuation. He said Mr Kambwili was not aware of the evacuation preparations which was amusing. “The passport was with the Ministry of Health to facilitate his evacuation but he and his family were not aware of those plans, that’s what we find quite amusing,” Mr Phiri said.
And National Democratic Congress (NDC) spokesperson Eric Chanda said: “Finally the battle for the bail is over. The State has handed over the passport of the NDC consultant Chishimba Kambwili to the clerk of court and this means that Mr. Kambwili has met all the bail conditions
“As NDC we just want to thank the Zambian people for your prayers and support during this difficult moment that the NDC consultant and the party in general was passing through.”
