Frank Bwalya Mukuka a fugitive who was on the run was arrested by Turkish authorities in a touristic city of Denizli Pamukale with contrabands weighing about 650grams of pure cocaine in a hotel room were he was about to transact.
The Zambian national who went to Turkey as a student was aligned with some mafias and cartel running an illegal Silk Road network of supplying drugs and trafficking women from Zambia to Turkey.
As it stands the Zambian Embassy in Ankara is not aware that Frank Bwalya Mukuka has so far spent more than 3 months in prison and he is not allowed to be visited by anyone.
We are shocked that the Zambian Ambassador Mr Joseph Chiengi has not even taken time to intervene even after several calls from the Zambian community but the embassy doesn’t respond back.
Just a few days ago the daughter to Freedom Sikazwe arrived in Ankara Turkey and a big bash was held to welcome her at the embassy premises.
Frank Bwalya Mukuka will be sentenced in February next year for drug possessions and is likely to face more than 8 years in a Turkish Prison.
