Mary Kapoko, the wife to Henry Kapoko, the prime suspect in the financial scam at the ministry of health, has applied for judicial review regarding the restriction to her property.
Mrs. Kapoko has applied for judicial review in connection with the restriction to her plot number 9971 in Woodlands extension and a Toyota Hiace Mini-bus.
She argues that even if Mr. Kapoko to whom the restriction notice over her property is addressed is her husband, she is entitled to own property as a Zambian citizen.
Mrs. Kapoko also contends that she bought plot number 9971 at K310 million from a Mrs. Stella Kabwe and paid for the property in installments.
She added that she bought the Toyota Hiace Mini-bus in October last year from her business proceeds.
The Anti corruption Commission-ACC- and other security wings have restricted a number of properties in connection with the 27 billion kwacha financial scandal at the ministry of health.
Among the notable properties restricted is Lusaka’s Best-Home Lodge.
