The Anti-Corruption Commission has referred the matter in which the officials at the Zambia National Farmers Union have been accused of plundering 34 million to the Drug Enforcement Commission.

ACC Spokesman Timothy Moono told Journalists that the Commission received a complaint over the matter but that after assessing the complaint, it was discovered that it bordered on money laundering and theft.

“Yes we received a complaint regarding the alleged abuse of office authority at the ZNFU but after we carried out our assessments, we then referred it to DEC because it borders on money laundering and theft for further action,” Mr Moono said.

An audit at ZNFU has implicated the Board in the plunder of K 34 million through loans and other inducements.

The Board through its Vice Chairman Richard Lisimba has since rubbished the audit report.

  1. I knew ZNFU had become a time bomb when they agreed to be government conduit of the senseless solar powered maize vigayo. This a lesson to others. Never say yes to government formula 1 projects in an election year. They are just platforms for abuse and mobilisation for campaign funds. I hope the guilty will be nabbed and the innocent will be spared

  2. Richard has always been a crafty person. Starting from Namboard, NCZ, ZCF , FRA and now ZNFU. He has ammased alot of wealth from fertiizers and maize distributions. Please leave no stone unturned

  3. Let a forensic investigation be undertaken by at least three independent auditors (two be must foreign) just to be sure. It seems the board of ZNFU has no respect for a Zambian auditor who has caught them red handed with their grubby fingers in the kit. Accounting operates on a math equation and makes it easy to catch a falsifier of books. I don’t think the auditor would be that stup!d and ignore accounting principles, integrity and risk his licence. I feel sorry for the young lady presiding over that important organisation, if this report is true. There’s a ring of truth to it.

  4. 2 of the most useless corrupt grouping of uselessness—ACC and DEC.
    Have you ever heard them prosecute any high profile corruption or theft case recently ?
    when pipo point to missing millions they say bring evidence…

    • This is true. These toothless people just collect their salaries every month and then harass political opponents of PF to keep them happy.

      The Auditor General report is there with MILLIONS of taxpayers money unaccounted for and how many convictions have these people made? ZERO!!!

  5. The issue is very hot! The ZNFU has reported the auditor to ZICA as they allege unprofessional conduct on the part of the auditor. And I now hear that the auditor has changed his report!!!

    Bring some popcorn! Munzi wapya!

  6. How does a Drug Enforcement Commission handle money laundering and theft cases? Since when did drugs and money laundering/theft always have a common denominator? It is high time the commission changed its name to something like Drug Enforcement and Economic Offences Commission. Citizens can come up with even a better name for the commission. Or better still have a different commission for money laundering and theft.
