The Task Force has warned and cautioned former President Rupiah Banda’s son on allegations of soliciting and receiving gratification contrary to section 29 (1) of the Anti-Corruption Act number 3 of 2012.
Andrew Banda has also been cautioned and warned for being in possession of property suspected of being proceeds of crime contrary to section 71 (1) of forfeiture of proceeds of crime Act number 19 of 2010.
Task Force spokesperson Namukolo Kasumpa told journalists in Lusaka Tuesday that Banda is alleged to have solicited 2 percent payment from an Italian Construction Company against payment received from the Road Development Agency on both current and future projects.
Kasumpa said the solicitation is alleged to have been by way of an agreement dated 22nd June, 2011 signed by Mr. Banda and a Mr. Antonello Locci and witnessed by Mr. Banda’s daughter Ketiwe.
Speaking like a court of law, Namukolo Kasumpa said Banda also failed to account for the deposits made to his Stanbic Bank personal account amounting to over K360 million, the money suspected to be proceeds of crime.
