Information has emerged that Autoforce owner Reeves Malambo could have been murdered by his partners in the illegal trading of mukula tree.
Malambo was a notorious criminal who was involved in many dirty crimes, such as selling ‘hot’ cars from South and was only a free man because the police were ‘in his pockets’.
He was murdered last night allegedly by one of his numerous concubines Shabu Benos, a drug pusher and partner in the Mukula illegal trade. She allegedly knifed him in the back at her house in Ibex Hill, Lusaka.
Police sources says Malambo owed the elder brother of Shabu code named ‘Bronx’ more than $600, 000 from mukula profits. Some police sources believe that Bronx is involved in the murder, indirectly if he was not the one who actually stabbed him.
According to informants, Malambo was the main contact for the illegal business and was recently paid by the Chinese buyers but refused to give his partners their share, or just gave them small amounts.
It is believed that it Shabu who introduced the elder bother to Malambo.
In November 2014, The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) arrested Faisal Omar and Malambo Reeves for corrupt practices.
Details are that Faisal Omar and Malambo Reeves corruptly offered Three Thousand Kwacha to Zambia Police Service Officers manning the Manyumbi Police Check Point along Great North Road in order for the Police Officers to allow two trucks carrying Mukula Tree logs to pass the Police Check Point without being impounded.
Of course he was released after paying senior officers. Imagine, this guy was carrying mukula trees in his truck but was only charged for trying to corrupt a police officer not for illegally trading in mukula?
