My cousin, a police officer and his colleague have really suffered at the hands and due to the crookedness of PF Vice Chairperson for Elections and well known crooked Lawyer Kelvin Bwalya Fube, known as KBF – Kawalala By Far.
Imagine they have been in and out of court since 2007 on a tramped up charge of extortion by threats. The state entered a nolle in 2014 and now this crooked lawyer is asking for K100,000 from each of them.
This is despite the fact that he abandoned them as soon as the initial deposit of K8M he had asked them to pay finished.
The case came up before the retired justice Naboth Mwanza in 2008.A few witnesses testified before the judge retired. Then the case had to restart. .This is a very complicated case and exposes the rot and corruption in our justice delivery system.The complainant was Donald MacDonald who worked for Zambian Airways and Zega as MD.He sodomised one of the 38 male street kids he kept illegally at his home in ibex Hill.This boy named Jonathan Musonda then stole a cell phone that MacDonald had bought for his wife and was susequently taken to Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe Police station where these officers were based.The officer in charge then was a friend to Mcdonald and detained the boy in cells. After seeing that he was suffering needlessly,this boy disclosed to the two officers that MacDonald had sodomised him when his wife travelled to Scotland.The officers told their boss about this who became furious.He schemed with McDonald and reported the matter to a crooked senior police officer called Nzo at Police Headquarters. He ordered that the two officers be arrested and charged for inconveniencing an investor.
Meanwhile the juvenile was given money and sent away to an unknown place. When these two officers were released on bond they managed to locate the boy.
The case started in the Lusaka High Court in March 2008 before judge Mwanza.That is when the officers retained that crook called Kelvin Bwalya.When they disclosed to him about the boy,he was greatly elated and said that the juvenile would be their greatest weapon.He even offered him work at his new offices along Mwinjimfumu road as he was about to move from tarrys building in town.
The case dragged on.When the judge Mwanza retired the case had to restart. Kelvin Bwalya told them to pay K20M old money. The officers couldnt afford and opted for legal aid.They appeared before Judges Flugence Chisanga,Dominic Sichinga and Judge Sitali,before it was taken back to the magistrates court before Hon Mweene(mrs).The state entered a nolle in 2014.From then on Bwalya reappeared and started asking for legal fees from these poor officers.He has now sued them.Is this fair honestly? These officers have suffered so much and are living in destitution because they are not working.Where will they get money to pay this crooked lawyer? Is he in order to act this way,abandon these poor officers and reemerge to further compound their problems? Please probe this case ba watchdog,the revelations will shock you.
