Namibia seizes more Zambian illegal timber logs.

The Anti-corruption Commission of Namibia has seized yet another consignment of suspected MUKULA logs being corruptly transported transported through that country.

The Zambian truck registration plate AJD 7928 carrying the logs has since been confiscated.

The alert Namibian Ainti-Corruption Commission says:

“It is now becoming more evident that a network of agents on the Zambian and Namibian sides of the border are the facilitators of this documentation.”

Authorised Officers of the ACC on New Years Eve, around 23:00 stopped and seized a fifth load of timber carried on a Zambian truck.

“This truck too carried forged paperwork based on documentation bearing the same serial numbers as two earlier loads confiscated.”

The load of timber as well as the truck was confiscated pending investigation and the driver are being questioned.
