Amos Chanda responds to ACC charges

*STATEMENT BY AMOS CHANDA*

*12.01.2022 (1943 hrs).*

I have read with utter shock that the ACC spokesperson Queen Chibwe has continued with a pattern of of obnoxious lies since the commission’s illegal raids on me on October 27, 2021.

I can confirm that today, the ACC summoned me and presented me with a list over 30 properties and mining licenses which they alleged belonged to me.

I exercised my right to remain silent because of all those properties I could only recognize four title deeds in my name, two of which are developed and the others are just bare land acquired from the ministry of lands and various councils.

The interrogators assured me that they took note of my position and and that no statement would be issued over the matter until they verify ownership.

During this interview, the ACC also “donated” three properties to me located in Roma Park, Lusaka. They told me that I owned the double -storey buildings in Roma Park and they wanted to know the value. I told them I don’t know the value of the properties I did not own and so they can ask the owners.

I neither have the 15 properties they have lied about and so I challenge them to name this Propertie title by title, location by location and physical addresses.

It is a shame that a state institution would have no shame to lie. I have always said ACC must present their case before a competent court but it appears they enjoy malicious attacks on my integrity.

Properties have addresses such as road name, title number and towns where they are located. Please name these items and present the matter before a judge so we can prove our innocence.

The commission also asked how I afford school fees for my two children who at Baobab College and the one who competed Grade 12 at St Mary’s last year.

They also asked what my salary was at Zambia Daily Mail, London Mission and State House. They asked me about 25 cows at the farm, 43 goats and 50 cows in Namwaala. This the summary of proceeding of today not the lies Queen is telling. They asked me about bank loans and relationships with at least six people I have neither met nor have knowledge of whatsoever.

I will seek legal advise about this pattern of lies.

    The 5th Amendment is not a part of Zambian law. This fool can therefore not hide his guilt by being silent. In the US, where that strange and stupid provision exists, it applies only in felony cases, where an accused can choose to say nothing without incriminating himself. In a civil case in the US, the same silence can be inferred as incriminatory, and the charge can levy substantial penalties because he felt that that silence was used to obscure evidence of culpability. The law of Zambia is akin to the former. This fool has refused to talk, looks guilty because of it, and that appearance of guilty can be invoked by the prosecutor against him. The idiot stole with wantonness, naively and erroneous believing that his tribal based government would never be impeached by the voters. These fools stole in such stupid, presumptuous and confident way, evidently in the belief that their security from prosecution was an accomplished and permanent fact of Zambian political life. If not, they would have spirited their ill gotten wealth to Europe like the many foreigners equally looting the country are doing.

    Does the 5th Amendment exist in Zambia? This an anachronism of American law, which is not present in English law, that is the heritage of Zambia’s legal system. He cannot choose to remain silent; but if he keeps silent, the judge can interpret his silence exactly as he wants, including assuming it to be a confirmation of guilt. He refuses to answer because he has been caught red-handed. Unfortunately, it will not end here, and it will not end well for him.

    At last it is good that table have turned the other way round. I can see there is panic in Amos’s Bla bl. He is telling us that he chose to be silent and then he is now talking. We used to give you free advice that ECL was not going to rule for ever. Now see what is happening. Surely did you think all those activities are to be forgotten like a tattoo at the back.

    WHEN YOU WERE IN GOOD BOOKS WITH ECL YOU USED TO BEHAVE AS IF YOU WERE LAW IN YOURSELF. YOU WERE A TERROR TOGETHER WITH YOUR FRIEND KAIZER ZULU. nOW YOU HAVE CONTINUED TO CARRY THAT ARROGANCE EVEN TO THE ACC. BE CAREFUL, WATCH HOW YOUR FRIENDS IN THE UPND ARE CARRYING THEMSELVES. THEY ARE SERVANTS BY DEED NOT BY LIP SERVICE LIKE YOU WERE. YOU CAN NOT BE CHEEKY WITH BOMA NY FRIEND.

    You can run Mr Chanda but you cannot hide. It’s better to speak through your lawyers. You might end up implicating yourself in your own web of lies.
