DPP reduces charges against Milingo Lungu

DPP REDUCES CHARGES INVOLVING MILINGO LUNGU FROM K150M PLUS $250, 000 TO K4 M

The sham trial involving KCM illegal provisional liquidator Milingo has taken another twist.

This time, PF prosecutors led by DPP Lilian Shawa have shamelessly reduced the charges Milingo Lungu is facing from the amount of K110.4 to a mere K4 million.

The collusion between DPP’s office and Lungu plus his lawyers came to light in court when Lungu took a fake plea.
Lungu pleaded not guilty to two counts of theft and money laundering charges involving K4.4 Million.

New fake and edited charges are that on dates unknown but between May 22, 2019 and September 28, 2021, Lungu stole K4.4 million, the property of KCM and allegedly transferred the said money knowing or having reasons to believe that the money was a proceed of crime.

Lungu is expected back to court on November, 29 and 30 for commencement of trial.

Lungu’s lawyers were even telling their collaborators from the DPP’s office that Milingo Lungu wants the matter to end the same day he will come to court again on November 30.
