Zambian Airways case still active-Police chief

Police Inspector general, Francis Kabonde says police are still investigating and gathering evidence in the case involving the collapsed Zambian Airways.

Kabonde told journalists in Lusaka Tuesday that the  investigating team has also extended its scope of investigations to countries abroad seeking evidence.

He said they have written to respective governments in the countries where the airline operated  asking for mutual legal assistance to pave way for the investigating team to travel to those countries to inspect certain institutions in order to retrieve the evidence that they require if they are to take action.

Kabonde appealed for patience from Zambians because such processes take a little of time because the respective governments will have to follow their legal processes before they can allow investigations to be conducted.

He said it is important therefore for Zambians to understand that the Zambian Airways case might take some time.

Kabonde said these same things about six months ago at another press briefing.

A long time ago, the police recorded warn and caution statements from Muntembo Nchito and Fred M’membe some of the directors of the airline that left passengers stranded at its sudden collapse.
