Zambians question Lusambo K1.5 million donation

Zambians are questioning Lusaka Province Minister Bowman Lusambo’s donation of almost K1.5 million  worth of goods in his constituency at a time the Financial Intelligence Centre has just revealed that Billions have been stolen by Patriotic Front (PF) connected leaders.

On Saturday, Lusambo posted on Facebook boasting that he had donated 4000 bags of mealie meal, 4000 litres of cooking oil and other assortments to his constituency.

How did Bowman Lusambo get this rich?

To make this donation, Lusaka Minister, Bowman Lusambo, had to pay something in the region of K1million from his own pocket. Now, we all know that, in 2011, Mr Lusambo was an MMD cadre with no money whatsoever. This means he has somehow, since assuming office, become arguably richer than the government he serves in. Remember, government is so broke that it is failing to meet its financial obligations. Simple question is how has Mr Lusambo made this money? Keep in mind that according to FIC reports, over K15 billion of public money has disappeared in illicit transactions in the last 3 years. By this post, I am asking Minister Lusambo to explain how he became so rich as to afford this donation. I am also asking the President to get the ACC to investigate this donation. I ask because this, to the uneducated eye, looks like a Minister with money in amounts which cannot be supported by his known earnings. I also ask because we citizens are tired of seeing politicians show off inexplicable wealth while the rest of us can barely hold things together. Mr President please – help us here.

    As long as those benefiting keep getting excited with such gestures; these politicians will keep using public funds to buy the votes. Only if people started to believe that this is actually their money (paid through taxation) and that these thieves are only giving them a one time bribe using a fraction of the same money you are paying taxes.

    Wake up people.

    This kind mathematics propelled by these politicians really puts me off,i surely fail to execute my duties towards my fellow citizens when i realise am robbed to such an extent.Really i can wait for the 2021 revolution. am sick and tired of this hand to mouth investment.There are better things to fund than doing such. This is how far our leaders can fathom. I do not think we need mealie meal or cooking oil. My opinion we need what can bring these things on our tables.

    You are asking Lungu Liar to investigate Lusambo? Lungu will protect his mate at all costs! And you want the ACC to look into Lusambo’s dealings? He will pay them off with K50 and that will be the end of it. ACC is just as corrupt as PF, it will only investigate non-PF people, and only if they get something out of it themselves!

    Who can investigate him when they are birds of the same fearthers. The best is to team up as Zambians and remove Pf and then investigate them. They enjoy the pf immunity and little can be done my sister.
