Former Defence Minister George Mpombo has been arrested and charged with six counts of theft.
He also faces charges of forgery during the time he was minister of defence.
Mpombo, who is also Member of Parliament for Kafulafuta was detained at Kabwata police in Lusaka.
Mpombo’s arrest arises out of the 2008 Auditor-General’s report. He was released on police bond and will appear in court on April 29.
The 2008 auditor-general’s report exposed glaring theft of public funds by government officials. No one has ever been arrested.
