Former High commissioner to Canada Dr.Nevers Mumba

Allegations of financial irregularities at the Zambian mission in Canada have disturbed President Michael Sata.

The President is concerned that information obtained so far suggests serious financial impropriety at the Mission in Toronto, which is under the supervision of Dr Nevers Mumba.

The President hopes that Dr Mumba’s impending visit to Zambia will provide law enforcement agencies an opportunity to engage him on the financial matters at the mission, he supervised as High Commissioner until his recent recall.

Mr SATA disclosed that Dr Mumba has been resisting his recall but now intends to come home on a private visit for some political engagements.

The President hopes Dr Mumba’s visit is self sponsored.

Mr Sata says the state shall recover from Dr Mumba any taxpayer’s money that would be spent on this purely private adventure.

Dr Mumba is among some former government officials being considered for the MMD presidency following former president Rupiah Banda’s abrupt retirement from politics after his September 20 polls defeat.

  1. Well Mumba is a Zambian citizen and I believe that it is within the Zambian law to recall any of its citizens that may be deemed ‘needed’ by the state, or else encounter them from wherever they are, through INTERPOL. I dont think Mumba’s questionaing should be a problem then. Why does it seem as though the govt cannot get Mumba to come and attend to concerns pertaining him, really?? Not the story that we have been given here . . . And if Mumba is a wanted guy, why should he willingly come to Zambia on a privately funded trip, ohjnly to hand himself over to police questioning?? hmmmm?????

  3. Sata is already scared of Nevers Mumba before he’s even MMD president.Stop the victimization of everyone in the previous govt and get on with running the country.All you’ve done so far is rumour monger and give Bembas more jobs.The slogan should have been ‘more money in Bembas pockets’

  4. Hmm, Law enforcement agencies? Shouldn’t this matter be handled by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs? And should it take THE WHOLE president to point this out? Where is the Minister of Foreign Affairs? 
    I’m sure the president is too busy to be concerned with this non-issue. If Dr. Mumba is to be recalled, then simply recall him. Send the new Ambassador over and let life continue.
    Simple as that.
    On the issue of financial misappropriation; we need to have better controls on our money – this is not a Mumba problem, or an embassy problem, but a Zambian problem. When money is allocated to a ministry/agency/department it only makes sense that that money should be accounted for and action should be taken when more money should be pumped it, taken out, or scrapped.
    Simple.

    • I totally agree. Audit. Follow up. Evidence of work done with said resources, not just forgable receipt balances.

    • Why is there such a shortage of sensible people like you in Zambia? Much of zambia’s problems are lack of accountability on the part of most people and poor oversight mechanisms. The trouble one finds is that people are quick to point fingers at individuals rather rather seek strengthening corporate governance and oversight. I agree, this is by no means a Mumba or even, dare I say, a Sata problem. I hope the President gets to learn this soon.

  5. When I was young I was always surprised to see people donating 10% of their income to the famous Texas based telly-evangelist Benny Hinn. How can one donate to someone based on a TV advert, without even having a sneak preview of their “administration costs”.

  6. Does the president really know what his key accountabilities are? I am beginning to have very serious doubts. The best thing is to let the appropriate officers like the auditor general produce the financial reports and statements to bring out the supposed irregularities. I am becoming more and more convinced that the person who is carrying himself as president is Guy Scott and not MCS. Guys, this is where education makes a difference. MCS cannot do details because of his level of education. I  am sure even diplomats have a code of conduct and practice.

  7. Financial misuse was there at the mission here in Canada, i remember visiting one of those people who work at the High Commission and one of them told me that ‘Pastor’ once sent a driver from Ottawa to Toronto to wait for him at the airport while he flew from Ottawa to Toronto. Now guys, Toronto is 4 hrs drive from Ottawa did he really need to send an empty car to meet him at the airport in Toronto when he could have simply gone there by road in the same car, So the government paid for Gas and plane ticket. When he was done with his business in Toronto, the driver dropped him off at the airport and drove the empty car back to Ottawa while the so called pastor flew above him. Woow, i wonder if thats what the US ambassador to Zambia does when he is visiting Kitwe????

  11. Even if these financial irregularities are true, this President does not have the credibility to make make pronouncements that the public can rely upon. He is an embarrassment to the nation merely for the fact that he, has head of state, finds himself publicly dealing with issues that other wings/ministries and or departments should be dealing with. That in itself simply shows that he is victimising individuals that are potential opponents in an attempt to discredit them. But they are all of the same feathers in my view.

  13. Lets get our facts clear here..Mr Sata is trying to shift attention. He knows what Dr Mumba can be to him if he allows him to come and people decide to support him. Show us how many of your minsters and government officials you have appointed that are theives and you cant raise a finger against them. Ba Mudala every week mulelufyanya and you want to shift attention. Even Father Bwalya is disspointed in you and with you. Put your boat in order Mr President.

  16. THE COBRA KNOWS MUMBA HAS VERY HIGH CHANCES OF TAKING OVER MMD AND GIVING IT A COME BACK.MUMBA IS CHARISMATIC AND SHREWED JUST LIKE MCS.HE IS A POPULARIST AND VERY GOOD OPPORTUNIST.MCS WILL NOT ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN!WATCH THIS SPACE.I MENTIONED ON THIS BLOG YESTERDAY THAT MMD WILL NEVER COME BACK AS LONG AS MCS IS ALIVE.HE IS SMART ENOUGH NOT TO LET THAT HAPPEN AND HE KNOWS WHAT TO DO.

    BY THE TIME HE WILL BE THROUGH WITH HIS FIRST TERM HE WOULD HAVE FINISHED MMD.HE IS NO SMALL BOY.JUNGLE LAW GOVERNS ZAMBIAN POLITICS.STRIKE BEFOR UR STRIKEN.SATA WENT THROUGH ALOT UNDER MMD.SHAKA SAID NEVER LEAVE AN ENEMY BEHIND OTHERWISE HE WILL STRIKE AGAIN!

  17. Mumba is craft and I don’t think I can give him a presidential vote. He is fallen from the pulpit and anything can be spoken of him. He is no longer influential as he used to be when he was a Pastor. Any Christian in his/her right sense can not give him the respect he once had when he was standing for God. Now he is interested in money and money and money. You remember, he was among those beneficiaries from Banda’s presidency. Before he was sent to Canada, he was among the brown envelop recipients from Mr. Rupiya Banda and his story was in the News papers. You can say this and that but the truth of the matter is; Mumba is corrupt and cannot lead Zambia. If he wants to lead a corrupt MMD, that up to the members of the MMD. as for me and many Zambians, he is not a factor.

  19. This guy is an opportunistic and materialist and for those who think Nevers Mumba would make good president for MMD, sorry guys just keep dreaming Nevers cant be good president for MMD he has no proper directions, remember he abandoned his church, he abandoned his own political party and mislead his followers to join MMD. later own he fumbled on diplomatic issues with DR Congo as veep under Mwanawasa hence he lost his job, so its clear to see that Nevers has no principles and he just loves money too much.

  20. THE ISSUE AM TRYING AM TRYING TO BRING OUT IS NOT THAT NEVERS WOULD MAKE A GOOD PRESIDENT FOR MMD.TRUTH IS TAKING OVER AN ALREADY ESTABLISHED PARTY MMD WILL ENABLE HIM TO DWINDLE THE FORTUNES OF PF.
    THE DIFFERENCE BTN BETWEEN NEVERS AND MCS IS THE SAME.MCS DINT WIN BECAUSE HE IS A GOOD LEADER.HE WON BECAUSE HE HAS THE ABILITY TO CAPTURE THE PEOPLES IMAGINATION.TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT NEVERS HAS IT TOO AND SATA KNOWS IT!BY THE WAY AM PF BUT GIVING AN OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS

  21. Sata please just do your job as President.I hope you really understand your accountabilities.You are obviously scared of Nevers Mumba.Dictators are always so insecure,so they indulge in ‘kachepa’ against those they fear.Nevers dont be intimidated by anyone.May God the Creator protect you and your family against your enemies who include the serpent,Sata(n),the King Cobra.

  22. The smear campaign of this man of God has started – Why would an entire president with such huge national responsibilities and poverty issues to address, concern himself with the unconfirmed conduct of a second level civil servant. Such an issue should be dealt with by either the Permanent Secretary of the foreign affairs ministry or at ministerial level. My conclusion is Nevers Mumba is definitely a threat to His Excellency The President Micheal Sata. Its evident too that the president has the worst advisers ever because on a daily basis his weaknesses and insecurities are exposed to such a level that hardly 90 days after elections the majority of us his supporters are almost calling for impeachment. Almost certain that the 90 Day theory is really about the time frame of an MCS presidency

  23. Nothing like the Cobra is fearing Nevers Mumba. Who is nevers Mumba by the way.Or the guy who abondoned the church for a political appointment.He will never achieve what he would have achieved if he had remained the minister of the gospel. The love for money made this guy abondon his flock. If they are financial irregularities at the embassy let the law take it course. Not only Mumba,they are more to come on board and explain.

  25. After the Sept 20/11 elections anything is possible in Zambia. The ppopulists regardless of their record and calibre they make the day when the majority want them. In the same vein even if I do not think that Nevers has what it takes to move the country forward he may just be as popular as SATA five years from now. The rate at which SATA has been blundering it fathonable that it is a matter of time before the grassroots realize that the “Saviour” is just as ordinary.

KEEP ON DREAMING ABOUT NEVERS BEING A THREAT TO SATA OR ANY PF POTENTIAL PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE. IF PF FAILS TO CREATE JOBS AND TO IMPROVE THE STANDARD OF LIFE IN ZAMBIA- YES WE SHALL START TO THINK OF OTHER LEADERS. EVEN THEN NOT NM.

  28. Jay Jay its true you cannot understand because the bible says “… the things of the Spirit are Spiritually discerned ..” Yes some people abuse the Word of God for selfish reasons, but that does not mean God cannot speak to people to give to certain Ministries they feel are doing what is right. I will tell you that people who normally use the Word of God in vain their end come sooner or later. Am working in a country were there is little Word of God am so I also find time to preach and encourage people to give(tithes/offerings) not for my benefit but for their own good Apostle Paul in the Bible, puts it. I know what it means to give to the Work of God my friend.

  29. This could be Never’s second chance to be president of Zambia, he missed the first due to insurbodination to Levy. Levy eneded up dying on RB instead of nevers.

    This time, nevers does not have to be surbodinate to Sata, he simply has to tell him to fk-off and get MMD presidency, oppose him till the end. In other words Nevers failed the ‘surbodination’ tst, he needs to pass the ‘balls’ test to be president. He may fail again depending on how he behaves.

  31. At the rate the president is going, he will find himself overworking his body. Such things as reported on Nevers Mumba do not need to come from his mouth. That’s for the Foreign Ministry to tackle and copied to him. He must give policy direction for this country, and not to preoccupy himself with, say, the salary of the MD for ZNBS, for pete’s sake. By the way, we haven’t forgotten the scandal and corruption riddled PF-led Lusaka city council land allocation expose. What has happened to that issue? I hope it hasn’t been swept under the carpet because now, boma ni boma?

  32. If Nevers was from some other province it would have been an issue. But now that nevers is a bemba from Chinsali, provincial capital of Muchinga province, being bemba is not an issue. But MC scared fo nevers. Sis be real guys, Nevers a threat.?? Never. MC started in 2001, when heritage, FDD, UPND where big parties, where are all these today? downward trend in numbers if not dead. Now you think nevers whose NCC never went anywhere, abandoned his party and was sent to canada is now a threat to MS????Be real think with your brains, the ones in your head!!!! nevr achepa sana. Nevers is in the same class as BY, Ngongo, Mutesa etc etc you know them alll.

    • Dont kid yourself bro donchi; pipo are already desperate for change and ready to groom a new person for plot 1 bcoz the current  regime has already given us a taste of the misery to come in the next 5 years. Evn the 150,000 youths who made pf win are already disgruntled for being exluded from the national cake they voted for. Even mmd had die hard supporters like you but that didnt stop the wind of change. underrate Nevers to yo own peril

  33. So far Zambia has had five Presidents, in my humble opinion, KK takes the top slot, followed by Levy Patrick Mwanawasa. It is debatable who could fill the third position but certainly not FTJ or Sata. This is just my humble opinion. Let us wait and see…..

  35. Sata the spokesperson of Foreign affairs minister, Auditor’s General office, Zambia police, ACC and iformation minister. How and when will Zambians be informed in a logical and normal flow of information?. Certainly some one is not fit for the purpose.

  36. The Church in Zambia should not slumber in praying for our President who always mis-times his corruption disclosures. Sata is subjecting law enforcement agents to political pressure by directing them to quiz Nevers. Sata should have asked the Auditor to submit a full list of missions to law enforcement agents, so that thet investigate and arrest all the culprits without doing it in piece-meals. Fighting corruption the way Sata is doing it looks more political than economical and resembles the Chiluba way of doing things. Why did he sack all the D.Cs and decide to give a job to Japhen Mwakalombe and Emmanuel Mwamba? Sata’s actions also indicate that he is a corrupt person.

  37. Democrat 44, my opinion is Mwanawasa takes slot 1, followed by KK in slot 2, followed by I dont know. Had RB not contested for re-election, perhaps he would be in my third slot. the next five years will give me time to Slot MCS either before or after FTJ. However, FTJ’s beginnings were far much better than MCS’.

  42. This is the working of the Roman Catholic Church and its Bishop who are now influencing every thing that Sata is doing at State House.

    Nevers Mumba has never done anything wrong whatsoever the only thing he has done wrong: is being the Person who may be elected MMD President and being a Christian Member of the Pentecostal Church which supported the declaration of Zambian as a Christian Nation. The Roman Catholic Church OPPOSED the declaration of Zambia as a Christian Nation but Pentecostal churches supported the declaration!

    Roman Catholic Church and its BISHOPS are PARANOID about the things that were said about them regarding what happened in Rwanda AND Roman Catholic PRIESTS who were accused of being involved in the GENOCIDE in Rwandan.

    STOP IT Roman Catholic Bishops!

  47. This is disappointing. If they need to question him, why not send people to Canada where the records are? how do they expect him to answer questions about finances in Zambia when all the records are in Canada. Sata is being petty. Doesnt he have enough workk to do? Where are the police?
    I had a lot of respect for the new IG Dr Martin Malama but I think he is now very compromised. Its very sad. Despite his earlier pronouncements, its appears MCS will continue the trend of using state agencies to pursue personal vendettas. I fear for mother Zambia. 90 days are running Mr President. there is more to do than just rant and rave at every press conference.
