3,000 Ex-Soldiers Threaten To Sue Government

MORE than 3,000 former Zambia Army soldiers in Ndola have threatened to sue the government if their liberation allowances are not paid.
In an interview yesterday, the former soldiers said those who served the country between 1964 and 1984 and helped neighbouring countries to get their independence were supposed to be given £17 that time by Queen Elizabeth.
The soldiers, who indicated that they presented their case before justice deputy minister Todd Chilembo, said their colleagues from other countries had been given the liberation allowances and were demanding
for the same, backdated from 1964.
And when contacted for a comment, Chilembo said the government’s position was that the soldiers were not going to be given their allowances because their claims were unfounded.
