Chitotela, Mumbi send cadres to harm Chifire

Patriotic Front (PF) deputy secretary general Mumbi Phiri and disgraced Minister for Infrastructure, Ronald Chitotela have paid and mobilised cadres to hunt down anti-corruption crusader Gregory Chifire who has been ex

Chitotela

posing Chitotela’s corruption activities.

Some of the youths hired told the Watchdog this evening that they had been paid money to harm Chifire and his family. Chitotela told the youths to go and attack Chifire at home in the night.

“We have decided to alert you because we also don’t agree with what these our senior people are doing. PF was a pro poor party but now people in leadership are engaging in corruption,” said one youth who sought anonymity.

The youths however revealed that they would stand by Chifire instead.

Chifire has exposed Chitotela’s corruption at the Road Development Agency where he forced the agency to buy him expensive, luxurious vehicles when he is not entitled.

Two RDA directors were fired for refusing to be part of this corruption.

Chitotela earlier threatened to sue Chifire but appears to have grown cold feet after Chifire welcomed the court action.

Chitotela has therefore resorted to what PF does best: violence.

This is not the first time Chitotela is indulging in corruption.
On 16 December 2013, then president Michael sata fired Ronald Chitotela and Rogers Mwewa as Deputy Ministers of Labour and Agriculture respectively.
Speaking during a meeting with Cabinet Ministers and all Patriotic Front(PF) Members of Parliament at State House on that day, Sata said he could not have deputy ministers working in government when they were being investigated over corrupt activities.
But when Edgar Lungu became president, he dropped the ACC investigations and instead promoted corrupt Chitotela to cabinet minister.

Please call Chitotela on his number 0977-880256 and ask him why he is sending cadres to harm an innocent man who is only doing his duties as a responsible citizen.

    Bakontwe, there is nothing honourable about those thugs, Mumbi and Chitotela. They are capable of doing any thing thuggish.

      PF and governmet property. Remember opposition Patriotic Front president, Michael Sata, was arrested and charged with two counts of theft of motor vehicles, has been remanded in police custody. 
      Theft of motor vehicles is not bailable under Zambia’s repealed law. 
      Sata’s arrest follows a directive to police by the minister of Works and Supply, Ludwig Sondashi to investigate, arrest and charge Sata for “allegedly unlawfully converting government property to his use.

    Gentlemen, ladies and gentlemen. Let’s not lose track. Much as corruption have no place in our society, we can’t keep on pointing accusing fingers on innocent people. I hope you know where the law stands, “you are innocent until proven otherwise”. An challenging Mr Mafire to produce the following facts:
    1. The date of purchase fir the said vehicles and the supplier
    2. The registered owners of the vehicles
    3. The date of transfer of ownership of the said vehicles

    We demand facts not just hearsay. You will be vindicated and applauded if you were to avail these facts. We don’t want to waste our time reading things that can not be substantiated. I urge you to put on a hat of truth. You may just end up ukunwa ayankundwa (By the way that’s a Bemba saying), you are free to ask fir translation from the Benbas.

    @Real, are you Chitotela? How can you say it is a smear campaign by Watchdog when Chitotela seems to be failing to defend himself: he threatens legal action and then goes quiet. It seems logical that if threats of legal action won’t stop Chifire talking, violence might! There is a pattern of corruption in this government which makes it easy to believe anyone who shouts corruption ($42 million dollars for 42 used wheelbarrows; ambulances at $288,000 each when Swedish government is donating very good ambulances for $52,000 each; Lusaka-Ndola Highway for about 4 times the normal cost). It’s up to the thieving PF ministers to clean up their act. No amount of threats will stop people talking. Abantu balefwa na Cholera these thugs are busy looting everywhere! Shame!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Watchdog… Is it that you have nothing to watch anymore? Why would you and maitre embark on a smear campaign. If your accusations against Honourable Chitotela are credible, can you please publish the white books of the said vehicles registered in the honourable ministers names? Mafire your days of lying are numbered.
    Mafire we all know the people you are working for.
    Allow me to ask this simple yet important question. Do you really think the two honourables can hire youths to beat you up? Let’s be sincere people

      is this person normal? I strongly doubt. The accused persons are failing to defend themselves but where are you getting that strength to defend themselves?
