In an effort to protect President Edgar Lungu’s corrupt political advisor Kaizer Zulu, National Revolution Party President Cosmo Mumba has been unleashed to intimidate Anti Corruption Commissioner Rosewin Wandi because she is suspected of having leaked Zulu’s investigation report.
Yesterday, Cosmo went to the ACC to petition Wandi to resign threatening that he would organise country wide protests if the ACC director general did not resign. In his petition, Cosmo accused Wandi of being incompetent and inconsistent because “she acts on rumours without evidence and subsequently failing to take matters before her office for clear cut prosecution as established by law”.
Cosmo popularly known as ‘pakafentelo’ following the feigned fenting during late President sata’s funeral is being used by Kaizer Zulu and senior PF officials who want to protect corruption in the government but view Wandi as a stumbling block. For Cosmo, he wants to win the PF’s attention he was enjoying under Sata but has been discarded by Lungu. During Sata’s reign, the ‘Pakafentelo’ was usually found in the corridors of State House mingling with PF officials.
