President accused of being a foreigner

Zambian president, Rapiah Banda is facing accusations, most recently including the country's former ambassador to Malawi, that he is not Zambian and therefore disqualified from holding high office. Banda has confirmed under oath that he was born in Zimbabwe to Zambian parents but opponents claim that at least one of his parents was from Malawi.

Zambia votes later this year in presidential polls. Banda is running for reelection.
