Albidon Zambia limited, Munali Nickle Mine Management in Mazabuka has denied media reportsÂ that two of its employees have been arrested by the Drug Enforcement Commission(DEC)for drug trafficking.
Mine Manager, Sixtus Mulenga told ZANIS in Mazabuka today that the two employees
arrested do not work for Albidon mine but an independent drilling company contracted
by the mine called Capitol drilling.
Dr MulengaÂ has since advised DEC to give correct information to members of the public and avoid issuing misleading statements which could tarnish the image of the mine.
He said the statement attributed to DEC public relations and press Liaison officer, Rosten Chulu is not true.
Dr Mulenga has since demanded for an apology from DECÂ for the bad picture created
adding that the board of directors felt the statement was calculated to embarrass the management.
Mr Chulu, in a statement said the commission had arrested Jeff Macdonald,45 and
Bevan Thompson,24 bothÂ New Zealand nationals working for Albidon capitol drilling
after they were allegedly found with eight balls of cannabis weighing seven grammes.
ButÂ DEC Public Relations Officer, Rosten Chulu has maintained that the two people who were arrested by DEC are Albidon employees.
Mr Chulu says the statement he issued yesterday was true and factual.
Mr. Chulu noted that a team of DEC officers arrested the two from Mazabuka to Lusaka
and still detained.
He has since challenged Albidon management to come to Lusaka and prove if the two are not employees of Albidon Mine.
Kudos to the “December” officers. At least you are showing that no one is above the law. The other you arrested and successfully prosecuted an old man aged 101. Now it is the investors from New Zealand that you have arrested.

Well done Mr Chulu and DEC at last someone in Zambia has the gall to arrest the so called investors who are mostly in the country on false pretenses. Please if the department can prosecute these guys it will serve as an eye opener to all those “investors” that when caught they will be treated as common criminals. If that was a Zambian in New Zealand or any European country he would be on the front page of their daily papers with eye catching -Bold Underlined San Serin Zambians-as headlines. Keep up the good work
It just the wicked system.racist dont criminalise the guy they are worse things happening in the world to day yet you prosecute people for using a plant given by God thieves and marderers are left scot free.only God is just.
