Robert Mutembo Chabinga, one of the key persons hired by the PF to destroy the Post newspaper is wanted by police for obtaining K3000 by false pretences from a widow.

When the government of Edgar Lungu decided to close the Post newspaper, they hired a questionable law firm owned by one Lewis Nathan Mosho who caused himself to be appointed provisional liquidator. In turn Mosho, who was once arrested for stealing Shoprite shares, hired Robert Mutembo Chabinga as Assets Recovery and Operations manager. Remember birds of the same feathers flock together.

Some time last year, Chabinga approached a widow named Amanda Chisala Mumbi and asked her to lend him some money to sort a few urgent issues. He told Amanda that as a lawyer employed by the ministry of Justice he had been given some special assignment by president Edgar Lungu but that he had not yet been paid. Remember this is the same chap the PF used as a weapon to intimidate Constitutional Judge Enock Mulembe and force him to recuse himself during the presidential petition. Maybe this is the assignment he was talking about.

He promised the victim that he would pay her back the K3000 plus 50% interest. When the money was sent to him, he disappeared. Later when the widow managed to trace him by phone, he claimed that he was in Livingstone and that he had not been paid by Nathan Mosho, the provisional liquidator of the Post. He promised to pay back within October 2016. He then switched off his phones, prompting the victim to report him to Woodlands police station. The police have sent him a call out but he has simply ignored it.

The question is, if the people who have been entrusted with liquidating the Post can not pay back K3000, can they honestly account for the multimillion properties of the Post?

We have consistently said Mosho is not a trustworthy person and that is why he can only work with other crooks Chabinga.
