It has now been confirmed that it was Avic International that attempted to bribe former Minister of Planning Lucky Mulusa with $2 million.
On 13th July 2017 at Paradise Lodges in Twin Palm; Lucky Mulusa was offered $2million by Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) but he refused to oblige and this cost former president Rupiah Banda and two senior government ministers to lose out on the same deal for the same amount as they were all part and parcel of awarding the Chinese firm with a lucrative tender.
In a recording , you hear Mr Mulusa strongly refusing to be part of such blatant corruption but sadly you hear the two senior government ministers reminding Mulusa that…. “this was our time to make money”…..It is not clear as to who was doing the secret recordings but sources say the office of the president made the recording and one of the officers leaked the recordings.
In a telephone interview held on 27th December 2017 Mr Lucky Mulusa said he was aware of the recording but he was not prepared to make a statement, he further intimated that the appropriate time will arise when he would hold a press briefing to address corruption in the Edgar Lungu lead PF administration.
AVIC IS ALSO BUILDING FLATS FOR EDGAR LUNGU AS PART OF CORRUPT CONTRACTS
As part of corrupt tenders, AVIC international Zambia is building multi million dollar housing apartments for Edgar Lungu, wife, Ester and daughter Tasila in Lusaka’s Woodlands area.
Avic International Zambia is the Chinese company that has been given dubious tenders to construct township roads across the country. Avic was also corruptly awarded the tender to construct the Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe airport. All these tenders are overpriced by at least 70%, and in most cases do not go through a requisite tender. When they go through a tender, it is just to fool the public as tenders are given to Avic by dictator Edgar Lungu who is now referred to as ‘koswe’ in Zambia due to his corrupt, thriving nature.
The apartments are right opposite Joseph Lwangwa Catholic church behind the mosque along Burma road.
This is the same land where the Lungu house of prayer would be built.
There is massive construction on the land that was initially for the Zambia forestry department. AVIC has already started tarring the roads leading to the Lungu’s apartments.
The construction of flats for Lungu and his family is part of the payment for awarding Avic International contracts.
