Here is one source of Lungu’s illicit wealth

Response to Chishimba Kambwili

We have been listening to former Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili asking where Patriotic Front President Edgar Lungu got his money from to be extremely rich in a very short period of time. He has not been answered.

We have taken time to investigate and try to answer him on behalf of Edgar Lungu though we have not been appointed Lungu’s mouthpiece. Ba Kambwili some of the money Lungu has came from the National Pension Fund Authority (NAPSA). Here is how Lungu got that money. The former developers of Kitwe Freedom Park Shopping Mall a company called Platinum Gold Equity decided to sell the project at US 33 million to Napsa. They engaged a law firm owned by former Director of Public Prosecutions Mutembo Nchito and his brother Nchima Nchito. The Law firm is called Nchima and Nchito Associates. The developers and the law firm agreed on a transaction fee of 10 percent. This means that the law firm was going to get 3.3 million dollars as commission.

Lewis Mosho probably Zambia’s most corrupt lawyer got wind of this. This was at the time when the Post Newspapers was about to under go liquidation engineered by Mosho. Mosho was worried that this money could end up with Fred Mmembe who is a close ally to the Nchitos. Mosho was worried that Mmembe could use the money to pay the disputed Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) debt. Mosho with the help of Robert Chawinga the liquidation manager for the Post had to find a way of blocking the law firm. They asked Fackson Shamenda then Minister of Labour to briefly halt the transaction as they muted plans. Shamenda agreed.

Then Mosho approached now Supreme Court Judge Charles Kajimanga to issue a court order to stop the transaction. Judge Kajimanga refused because he saw no reason. Mosho then approached now also Supreme Judge Nigel Mutuna who also refused. Why where these judges approached? the answer is Simple. These are the judges whom Fred Mmembe during the days of Michael Sata dragged to the tribunal over the liquidation of Zambian Airways. Mosho believed that these judges will take it personal and block the transaction because they had personal vandetta. Surprisingly, the judges said the issue was purely business and no reason to stop it. Mosho then had to travel to Kitwe to obtain an order from Kitwe High Court Judge Isaac Tantameni Chali. The Nchitos law firm was blocked. Napsa was then asked to pay through Mosho’s Law firm called Lewis and Nathan Associates.

Mosho, Shamenda and Lungu shared this money. That is how Shamenda rose from rags to Riches and bought a farm in Lusaka along Mikango Barracks Road. The following month Lungu had to personally fly to Kitwe to launch the shopping Mall which is even named after him. It is called the Edgar Chagwa Lungu Shopping Mall. What nonsense. Anyway we can not even by a Toothpick from such a mall. As if this was not enough, Mosho through Napsa single sourced a construction company managed by his friend to do the construction works. The company is called Steffanuchi and is managed by Watson Ngambi who is former Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Works and Supply also former Director Roads Development Agency (RDA). So Mr. Kambwili we have answered on behalf of Edgar Lungu. Stop bothering him. He is not a petty thief but a very big criminal.
