NDC asks ACC to immediately investigate fired ZAF boss

For Immediate Release.

*NDC Welcomes Dismissal of General. Chimese.*

Kitwe. 08.08.2018.

The National Democratic Congress NDC has welcomed the decision by President Edgar Lungu to dismiss Zambia Air Force ZAF commander General Eric Chimese.

We urge the Anti Corruption Commission ACC to immediately probe General Chimese.

We have credible information that Gen. Chimese might have been involved in a number of corrupt activities during his seven year stay as ZAF commander.

We have in mind the 62 million United States dollars contract for the supply of military uniforms that Gen. Chimese single sourced on 11 August 2017.

As NDC we have information that Gen. Chimese single sourced a local firm BHB contractors to supply uniforms to ZAF at an inflated price.

BHB is a local company situated at plot number 407 Independence Avenue Lusaka.

Gen. Chimese single sourced this firm to supply expensive military regalia when a Kenyan firm, PURMA was ready to supply the same uniforms at 14 million U. S dollars.

We urge the ACC to go further and probe all the civil servants including a Permanent Secretary who are linked to the 62 million dollars scandal.


Brigadier General Wilfred Mbewe was Chief of Supply at ZAF when this deal was dubiously signed.

Gen. Mbewe and others opposed this deal but was removed from his office by Gen. Chimese.

A number of officers such as Brigadier General Chibesa who was in charge of Finance were unceremoniously retired for opposing this deal.

Gen. Chimese has left ZAF in a mess and should be probed immediately so that his name is cleared.

The NDC further urges President Lungu to fire Zambia Army Commander Paul Mihova.

Gen. Mihova is involved in a lot of dubious activities at the army.

As NDC, we have the full details of the proxy that Gen. Mihova is using in South Africa to loot Zambia Army resources.

Issued by: Mwenya Musenge. Secretary General NDC.

    High level Zimbabwe military sources at Chirundu Border post have told ZimEye that MDC Alliance Principal Tendai Biti has been arrested.
    Biti, they said, was arrested at just before 8am Wednesday morning. He was in a white Toyota Fortuner with South African registration numbers, they said.
    “He was about to cross over into Zambia at the time seeking to get his passport stamped,” the sources said. 
    As the wave of repression on opposition political party supporters continues following the announcement of election results (Friday), Alliance partner, Tendai Biti’s security personnel escaped a freak accident by a whisker after four cars gave chase to one of their vehicles in Greendale Harare on Sunday.
    One of Biti’s boys told ZimEye that he believes that the men who were on their trail and wanted to abduct them are from the military.
