Committee of Citizens director Gregory Chifire has asked government to explain how one of President Sata’ sons has suddenly become rich.
Chifire says Mulenga Sata who has been selling dogs before his father became president has in the last 60 days bought expensive property among them a brand new Jeep costing about K800 million and a brand new GX, valued at about K1 billion.
‘It has come as a shock to us how that Mulenga Sata, son to the Republican President, has suddenly acquired money and property under very unexplainable circumstances, among them a brand new Jeep costing about K800 million and a brand new GX, valued at about K1 billion.
‘The Public knows very well that Mulenga has never had a lucrative business other than selling imported dogs to residents of Lusaka and supplying whisky to night clubs. The Income this man makes from his businesses cannot afford him the luxury of driving vehicles worth K1.8 billion,’ explained Chifire.
He also explained that before elections, Mulenga was driving a Toyota Spacio which he has since parked at Omelo Mumba road in Rhodespark adding that it is now surprising that within 60 days of his Father being in office, he has acquired such cars of magnificence
Chifire also challenged Government to come out clean on ‘the 15 million South African Rand that was deposited in an FNB bank account in Johannesburg on Tuesday 29 November 2011 by a wife of one of the senior military Officers.’
He said the circumstances under which this money found itself in the Republic of South Africa and how that this amount is too colossal to be possessed by a wife of a military officer raises concern, and the Public wishes to know the truth surrounding this transaction.
