Alita Mbahwe, Commissioner, Drug Enforcement Commission, Zambia – Conspiracy to defeat the course of justice.
When we reported last time that this woman is corrupt and has no integrity we were right.
We still restate our position that this woman is corrupt and very compromised.
She is not fit to be in that sensitive position. Here is why we confidently say so.
On Monday 8th July, 2019 in the afternoon, Alita Mbahwe met General Eric Chimese in the absence of other senior officers. The duo namely Alita Mbahwe and General Eric Chimese had a private meeting for close to two hours.
This is highly unethical for Alita to meet an accused person in the absence of other officers.
Not even a magistrate can meet an accused person in chambers without the prosecution being present. If a magistrate did so, this would be tantamount to professional misconduct warranting a dismissal.
The late Dpp Mukelebai Mukelebai (may his soul rest in peace) was accused of having met Xavier Chungu, an accused person, in Livingstone.
This prompted the then Republican President late Levy Patrick Mwanawasa to appoint a tribunal to prob the conduct of the late Dpp.
What Alita Mbahwe did on Monday afternoon is unethical and constitutes professional misconduct.
We urge the President to constitute a team of seasoned professional senior officers from the investigative wings to conduct an inquiry into the criminal conduct of Alita Mbahwe.
Alita Mbahwe’s conduct of meeting General Eric Chimese privately in the absence of other senior officers falls within the confines of conspiracy to defeat justice as provided for in section 112 of the Penal Code, Cap 87 of the Laws of Zambia.
The public may wish to know that on Tuesday 9th July, 2019, when the criminal matter in which General Eric Chimese is an accused person came up for trial in the Lusaka magistrate court, one witness namely Colonel Dexter Maseka became hostile after being compromised by General Chimese.
