Suspended Zaf commander now fired

Suspended Zaf commander now fired

David Muma

Information reaching the Watchdog is that suspended Zambia Airforce commander Eric Chimese has now been officially sacked,

Two weeks ago, Lieutenant General Chimese was suspended before his office and house were searched by the ACC, DEC and OP officers.

Chimese has been under house arrest from the time he was searched.

According to people close to the case, the firing of Chimese follows the conclusion of investigations and could mean a formal arrest will soon.

Sources say investigators discovered massive looting of national resources using ZAF facilities by Chimese and his henchmen.

It is further believed that Chimese was using the proceeds of corruption to fund a clique within PF that wants to usurp power from president Edgar Lungu. The clique which calls itself ‘Luapula United’ is led by health Minister Dr Chitalu Chilufya.

Major General David Muma (in the photo below) is now air Commander, but still in acting capacity. The Watchdog understands that Muma will soon be promoted to Lieutenant General and be sworn in as substantive ZAF commander.

    All the best David Muma, my former classmate in Grade 3 at Livingstone Primiary School  and DT Theresa’s Church Alter Boy.. to soon be the XAF Commander , and his wife was my Monitress at Linda High School. … 
    It s sad for me to read about corruption and I hope that the investigating officers have done a good job warranting Chimese’s dismissal, not just speculations or assumptions. Then hearing about the Luapula empire planing to get power, really that’s sad reading. Democracy should embrace diversity  and include all provinces. Let the law take its course. We want to read about the criminal charges and prosecutions….

    Dr. Chisela Chileshe in Zambia Correctional Service is Prime T.V. informer. You Chisela you want to force our President to fire Mr. Chato for you to be appointed Commissioner General? We know you. Your Excellency take this man back to the Police Service where they chased him from because of his power hunger. Confusion in Correctional Sevice will never end if he is here. He is power hungry. He must be satisfied because he is the one who gives suppliers contracts to supply rations to prisoners and he is the same person who is in charge of paying them. Very big anomaly and abuse of authority. He finished his pension to build a house but now he is building using money from food supplying because he supplies using about 10 different suppliers. Corruption. Office if the President Special Division in Kabwe, Anti Corruption in Kabwe and Drug enforcement Commission in Kabwe should follow this man. We know where he is building.

    This is surely a case of the chickens coming home to roost. The general law about stealing is that one day you will be caught. Whatever you do in between just delays the arrest but the day surely comes. Chimese should have seen this coming.

    I suspect that something must have gone terribly wrong with the appointing authorities for gen Chimense to be fired. I think its his association with the “Luapula One” group. Our president does not act even if overwhelming evidence is availed to him.

    Are we back to Chiluba-era armed forces when uniformed staff were sending numerous anonymous letters to the press? LPM killed it all by being effective as commander-in-chief and any general who tried to be uppity was shown the door.
