Former Lands Minister, Gladys Nyirongo, has been arrested for two counts of abuse of authority of office.

Mrs. Nyirongo was arrested, Friday by a joint investigations team on the Ministry of Lands.

Anti-Corruption Commission Public Relations Manager, Timothy Moono confirmed the arrest in a statement issued to ZNBC.

Mrs. Nyirongo has since been released on a K10 million ACC bond in her own recognisance and is exepcted to appear in court, Thursday.

She is alleged to have directed a lands officer at the ministry of lands to generate offer letters of land in Lusaka’s Foxdale and Chamba valley areas to several people in contravention of land allocation procedures.

The Former Lands Minister is also accused of abusing her office as lands minister when she directed a junior Technical Officer in the ministry of Agriculture to subdivide a former ZCCM farm for herself in contravention of land procedures.

Mr. Moono said investigations into corruption cases continue and more arrests will follow.

  3. This is a bold move the state has made. If Mrs. Nyirongo is acquitted it will be fine. If she will be convicted well and good.

  4. You see madam we told to take mpondela ku ACC and DEC
    but Mwale i kalapamapela.Can the new sports Minister take the papers on ZAAA to the TASK FOCE,ACC ,DEC and
    POLICE.Just like mada Njirongo’s case ,he also used MSM
    his company in Nkwazi Road to market ZAAA Inter company.Even the telephone numbers are for MSM NETWOK
    his company and not for ZAAA.He is paiding every thing for his business using ZAAA money. Recods show that more than 6 billion never got in the ZAAA acount
    ,but was put in the Mpondela 6 gost account,to date he can not call for the 2007 ZAAA AGM to show the council how he used the money alone. He is the only one signing on the accounts.On his adulterous behaviour he was fined K1.5 milliom which was good since his so arrogant and assault matter judgment yet to come.Ba president of ZAMBIA please tell your Investigating officers to investigate Elias Mpondela and his team over this ZAAA 6 BILLION MISSING FROM THE ACCOUNTS OF ZAAA.

  6. Lozi Bull .This the best way you have done to bring this issue on the Lusaka Times and i thinks ba president ku state house i has seen the new on how Elias Mpondela has pocketed the money for ZAAA. Using SMS NETWORK to market the intercompany, paying for his phone and pocking mor than 6 billion is abuse of office . The man should be investigated and the sports ministry should ask him to step .You can tell when there is inter company too much marketing on tv and radio after that we are not told how much was made from the race.Ministry of sports it is you job tell this man to call for the AGM AND ACCOUNT for the money. Bakateka mwikateni

  7. Ba Unza Yakale, please leave Ba Kateka concentrate on serious issues. Naimwe mukasambilileko business. Elias is a smart guy, avoid naming your friends impumpu, maybe the guy is trying new methods of doing business. Mwati tukawinapo mu Zambia?? And some of these cases such as land, are not worth it in Zambia. We have prenty plus land in Luapula and other beatiful provinces, why are you people worsting energy on those tuma plots and utuma farms? Just leave good people like Mrs.Nyorongo free. Let her apologise, its enough!

  13. This is what happens when there is lack of transparency and accountability in govt. A lack of checks and balances in govt. This is a symptom of a bigger problem than the ministry of lands.This is a problem of the whole govt. What we need are proper reforms – reforms in the way we handle our land.. reforms in health systems, education, labour. In Africa we have leaders who only do what they like… as someone pointed out – govts should be afraid of the people and not the other way round. In other words, we should make govts do what is best for the country and not what looks good to the donors. Most of the policies implemented only go as far as political point scoring and little to improve the general well-being of zambians. I sometimes wonder whether my govt would give me the same concessions they give to ‘foreign investors’ if I had the same mone to invest. Priority of the utilisation of the countries resurces should go to Zambians. Anyway, enough of ranting.May justice have its day.

  17. Its sad for Pastor Gladys how such Gods servants are using selfish motives to accumulate wealth because of a political tag? Shame on you naka Lands Commissioner about stealing the most valuable resource left to the poor. This is why we will never develop a a country because everyone sees politics a stair way to success by abusing their postions in power. so let Pastor Nyirongo tell who ever is in her position’Plundered land’. Abash Nyirongo and Sichone!!!!n Shamuna ne bane!!!

  18. It will be difficulty to develop our country because almost, if not all, so called Zambian leaders behave the same. The pretend to sheeps when they are actually lions / hyenas trying to loot whatever should be left for the poor. As an example, one former minister (in FTJ gov) has 4 big farms within lusaka and chisamba, more than 5 houses in Lusaka, big bare land in Roma etc. Now this guy was in govenment for 4 years and was fired but managed to have all these property. How did he manage. If you want the name I can give it to you. So abash Nyorongo and the group. Such people like Rev Nyirongo should be hunged by the neck until pronounced dead and property repossed and given to the poor.

  19. 19# Name this for minister that is what we want to know not forget mulandu taubola.It is not possible for someone with 4 years to acquire so much wealth unless he was stealing. If you are afriad of being victimised report secretly to the police or ACC. You the case of house plunders has not yet started in the courts. Its coming soon Levy has been very linient. If you got a house for nothing its either you surrender it or it has to newly evaluted. We shall take the house aware from you because it is inhuman. You only be fined that is if you cooperate with the courts. Everyday you laugh where the council is poor and inefficient these are some of the causes. Land is the source of income for every Boma. So ba Madam Rev. Priest how is going to preach in church or she has to behave like ba Danny Pule. Maama ati she even want to defend herself in court of law. Lets hope she only kusoma bible/Rufqua but also the Zambian bible.
