The Zambian Voice says it will proceed to report Commerce, Trade and Industry Minister Margaret Mwanakatwe to the Anti Corruption Commission for corruption.

Zambian Voice Executive Director Chilufya Tayali said in a statement that it is now clear that Mrs Mwanakatwe and her husband Mupanga must be investigated on how they acquired the CEEC loan.

Mr Tayali has since appealed to President Edgar Lungu to send Mrs Mwanakatwe on forced leave to pave way for smooth investigations so that she does not put undue pressure on CEEC.

He said the Zambian Voice is convinced that the loan was corruptly obtained with no intention on her part to pay back.

Mr Tayali said Mrs Mwanakatwe does not seem to have any shame to admit that she does not qualify to be among the people that should have benefited from the CEEC.

He added that the Commerce Minister has no shame to admit that she defaulted on the said loan adding that she should have apologized for having a non-performing loan for almost 6 years as a senior Banker.

Below is Mr Tayali’s statement

MRS. MWANAKATWE’S RESPONSE IS SLURPISH, WE HAVE TO REPORT HER TO ACC

Looking at the track record of Mrs. Mwanakatwe in Banking, we gave her the benefit of doubt thinking she is a professional with some credibility to be honourable in handling matters like her Loan acquisition from a public institution which was meant for the underprivileged people.

Unfortunately she does not seem to have a shame to admit that she does not qualify to be among the people that should have benefited from CEEC.

Further she has no shame to admit that she defaulted on the said loan. If she was a professional as we thought, she would have apologized for having a non-performing loan for almost 6 years as a senior Banker.

Reflecting on how the loan was acquired, we are somehow convinced that it was corruptly obtained with of intention on her part to pay back.

Aluworks Industries does not seem to have benefited from the money otherwise it would have done better. There is nothing to show for out of the money borrowed.

Her response and pressure exerted on CEEC to make a misleading statement alarms us, we have to engage the next gear.

We are going to report the matter to ACC so that Mr.s Mwanakatwe and her husband must be investigated on how they acquired the loan when there were so many suitable people to benefit from CEEC.

Further we want an audit to be done on the Aluworks which benefited from Public funds so that the Mrs Mwanakatwe can account for the loan.

While this is happening, we hope President Edgar Lungu will put Mrs. Mwanakatwe out of office so that she does not put undue pressure on CEEC to do wrong things.

We have been investigating her for sometime and brought the issue to her attention so that she can quietly deal with it, but ignored the gesture. She has continued with her arrogance to cover the wrong things she has done. We have no choice but to bring even more and she better be ready for more to come.

    • @The Real Olivia Pope; If Tayali had a wise mum or sisters they would have told him that “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”.

    • What about EDGAR’s Lebanese money in which the then little-known Esther Lungu was implicated. Esther was then just known as banana Dalitso, now she’s a global act. Who knows howmuch she’s now worth?And I repeat; It’s proper naive to think getting to the bottom of this Mwanakatwe problem will solve all outstanding issues in ZAMBIA. Chiluba died and all stolen money died with him. What about SATA, Katele, the-money-in concrete-man, former Labour Minister, Liato, Mmembe’s DBZ and ZRA saga, Henry Banda, RB and other unknown and never to be known deals and dealings. Leave LADY Mwanakatwe alone she’s just a small part of the bigger ZAMBIAN corruption issue.

    • Just pressurize some more Tayali and expect varied reactions from among the citizenry but soldier on for as others may not like the stance you have taken there are also others admiring your stance all the way.

    • Is it sex that Tayali wants from RB as well? They might as well just have a three-some once and for all. It will save them a lot of time since RB is very busy with the office of the fourth President and the advisory role for the current president. Obviously the minister has a time demanding job and Tayali’s watchdog job is taxing in terms of time. You three get on with it.

    • Ubupuba pa Zed will not finish. Mrs Mwanakatwe contracted the loan when she was not even a minister. The CEEC does not report to this Fred Mmembe foolish boy, it follows the guide lines given to it. Now this Sexy Tayali after chewing Mmembes money feels he can manage to sway the public thinking away from the evil of the cartel. Tayali tell your boss Fred Mmembe to pay the tax he owes the ZRA it is our money. As for Magaret it was a loan and they will pay at the right time not Tayalis terms. Report to ACC and it will be just rubbished you fool . The last kicks of the cartel we are yet to hear more nonsense from these hired guns.

  3. This is a witch hunt.

    What corruption? Be serious please. Are you the same chap that shags married women?

    Why not uncover the real corrupt ministers?

    Don’t just go for soft targets to make your name, try exposing the real thieves like Kabimba.

    Leave this family alone.

    • I told YOU I’m 2.1 Tayali is a busy chap. So if it’s about sex let’s have quick action. Tayali also has to deal with the exposition of loads-shedding causes among other national duties.

  5. So far in the postings above sex is becoming the object of Tayali’s motivation. Is the young patriot being given a fair judgment or not.

    • Enjoying? Well maybe. But the only one ZAMBIAN definitely enjoying the most here is bamayo ba Mushota who earns 60K has a Scottish fiance lives in a good house, drives a good car, doing a PhD and has a honour of BB2014.

    • Focussing on trivial issue to distract attention from a serious one that Tayali is confronting while many are scared!

  6. ..it seems there is a bone to chew between Margret and Tayali with someone else in the back ground…and seems historical…..I nearly foolishly joined into the fight…its time I hold back and first observe from the terraces where gear 2(round 2) shall take this issue….
    …I backed Tayali in gear 1(round 1) because I’m convinced and believe without any doubt that according to the fundamental scope of CEEC, the Mwanakatwez were not entitled to obtain the loan from that institution…..

  7. Tayali, who is acting on behalf of Mmembe and Rajan curry powder go ahead and report the matter to the ACC. Tayali, you do not have to stand on an ant hill to announce your intentions. Please just go ahead and report the matter or are you looking for donor funding in order to report the matter to the ACC? I understand you are always on the look out for hand outs.

    • Not only Tayali is rampant. Kambwili choosing not to be outdone wants to fire ZNBC and CBU staff having failed to shut down ZWD. He gave us hope when he said he has never failed anything in his life and the he was going to use FBI and the SWAT team to hunt ZWD and all behind the online team.

  8. I demand that HH scraps this demonic ministry in 2016. This is the same ministry that ‘gave birth’ to bashi Nono and got banana Nonoalmost battered to death. MOT & I to be under another ministry since HH intends to reduce cabinet.

  9. I’m surprised that most of us donot seem to see the gravity of this matter. If, indeed, it is true that is what the Mwanakatwes did then the boy has a point and as a nation we cannot triavialize the matter. My submission!

  10. The problem we have as Zambians is that we don’t see things from a rational angle. What we should be looking at here is whether what Tayali is disclosing actually happened or not, and not Tayali’s person. This is the more reason we vote for visionless people when the writings are clearly on the wall that such people will take the country nowhere. We always want to personalise issues. I think on this Mwanakatwe issue, lets examine what the lending criteria is and whether the person in question qualified to borrow, either as a company or as an individual. Once we establish the criteria, then we will be able to put this matter to rest. Otherwise, the fact still remains that the money was borrowed and no effort was made to start paying back.

  11. Most of the responses above are pathetic. Instead of addressing the serious allegations raised by Tayali, they attack the messenger! Typical of Zambian mediocrity that stops us from analysing issues and making progressive decisions.

    There are two issues here 1. Criteria for accessing CEEC loans and 2. Defaulting for 6 years.
    If Maggie is guilty of either or both, she has to answer!

    • As analyser I take exception to you accusation of lack of analysis on the part of us bloggers. First things first, in 1.3 I have analysed the bigger ZAMBIAN problem. In section 2.1, 5.1 and 8 , I have made an observation about the sexualisation of the Mwanakatwe CEEC loan, suggested an ergonomic way to deal with it a nd linked the issue to other pressing national matters visa vis load shedding. In Sec. 6, I have examined Tayali’s mindset and explored the future national benefits. In 11.1 in have linked Tayali to other key ZAMBIAN political players. In sec. 12 I have outlined future national benefits. And here you are saying the issue is trivialized. I DEMAND A PERSONAL APOLOGY FROM YOU!

  12. Are her personal ethics good enough for her to hold a responsible gov’t role?

    Is there a way to force her to pay her loans?

      2. THERE hasn’t been a responsible government in ZAMBIA for a while.
      SO SHUT UP!
