I am shocked that the so-called law enforcement wings DEC in particular and State (PF) -run media has not bothered to tell the nation what transpired 2 weeks ago at KK International Airport on Sunday 16 May 2013.
It was so disappointing fellow Zambians for airport security including OPSD officers to discover elephant tusks in 2 of the suitcases for the Army Commander’s entourage to China ! What was further surprising was that the delegation was allowed to proceed on a 7 Day Tour to China to go and give support to the one-China Policy with Wynter Kabimba despite having been caught red-handed with government trophy worth over Kr700,000 !
It has, fortunately, come to light that the same contraband was given to the Military Adviser to the Army Commander a Colonel Oscar Chapula by the Chinese Military Attache to Zambia so that he delivers the items to an unknown recipient in China but the issue was swept under the carpet by alert PF Cadres now employed as OP officers at the scene.
Now this scandal really stinks and attracts many questions like; how much or how little did Gen Paul Mihova know about this contraband because Col Chapula as his Military Assistant doesnt accompany the Army Commander on abroad or local tours, now why was it so important that he accompanied him this time around ? What agreement was there between the Army’s highest office and the Chinese Army’s highest office in Zambia ? How long has it been going on because from what we have been told even Col Chapula’s predecessor, Col Muzyamba a former Aide to Gen Isaac Chisuzi never accompanied his boss but on one similar occasion he accompanied him to nowhere else but China ! Is the Army Commander’s Diplomatic facility being abused because his luggage is never subjected to search? Lastly could this Ivory be part of the Ivory that grew legs mysteriously from ZAWA in Chilanga ?
The nation needs answers because the nation’s wildlife does not belong to the PF, the Chinese Government, neither does it belong to the Zambia Army. We need answers please !
