Jimmy Fingers, the Lusaka based conman who was arrested together with former ZAF commander Eric Chimese for concealing property today tried to change registered details of the seized property at ZESCO.
Meanwhile, General Erick Chimese’ s friend Mulenga Mwansa of Livingstone , the proprietor of Beehive night club was searched by DEC yesterday. It is believed that investigators uncovered more properties belonging to Chimese. Mwansa might be arrested anytime, unless he agrees to play ball with DEC and turn himself into a state witness.
On the property seized by DEC, ACC and police in Lusaka, it has been revealed that the bills at ZESCO, water utility company and other entities are in the names of Eric Chimese, as the Zesco system below shows. Jimmy Fingers tried to convince Zesco to change the details but they refused. The watchdog understands that Jimmy Fingers might be slapped with an additional charge of tampering with evidence and his bail could be revoked.

Jimmy Fingers maintains that the properties are his and has even sought a high court declaration that the property in question belong to him.
