Zambia has been embroiled in a diplomatic row with the Namibian government over a government vehicle that was impounded in Caprive Town with drugs suspected to have been stolen from the western neigbhours.
According to sources, the government vehicle with a GRZ registration number has been impounded in Namibia when the officers at Caprive Police Station were alerted on the contents in the vehicle.
When the news broke out at Western Province headquarters in Mongu, permanent secretary Emmanuel Mwamba got infuriated and demanded an explanation from officers on how the vehicle was found in Namibia with drugs.
Zambia has since been involved in diplomatic negotiations with Namibian authorities in an attempt to destroy the drugs and release the vehicle back to Zambia.
The matter has since been taken to the higher authorities through the ministry of homes affairs and foreign affairs to ensure that the matter has been covered up.
The source has said the vehicle that has been in the custody of Namibian Police for some time now are a subject of the deadlock and the drugs have since been emptied and kept in a high security locker.
