Transparency International Zambia has demanded that the Ministry of Agriculture and the Food Reserve Agency clarifies the alleged dubious export of subsidized maize to neighboring countries amidst a shortage of the commodity in the country.

TIZ Executive Director Goodwell Lungu told Hot FM News that the allegations are serious and needs a clear explanation from Agriculture Minister Given Lubinda and the Food Reserve Agency.

Mr. Lungu has also challenged law enforcement Agencies to quickly move in and investigate the matter following the reports.

Zambian Voice Executive Director Chilufya Tayali yesterday accused Agriculture Minister Given Lubinda and the Food Reserve Agency of conniving and selling subsidized maize to neighboring countries amidst a shortage of the commodity in the country.

Mr Tayali further challenged President Lungu to fire Lubinda, his PS Julius Shawa and FRA Executive Director Chola Kafwabulula adding that the three will only continue in their offices if the President is part to what they are doing.

He went on to accuse the ACC of being inept and impotent and that they were not doing what they were set out to do.

  1. A Lungu, A Lungu munzako can’t catch any thief. He has no teeth to catch corrupt people. You will hear what he will say. Nothing! Only other people will start explaining about the issue. How many people has EL reprimanded over corruption? None. Does it mean there is no corruption? It is massive.

    • It’s extreme folly to expect accountability from a kleptocracy. Chagwa is the mastermind of all the rot in govt. Anyway it is “globo” – the WB, IMF and UK have stopped all aid to Mozambique due to serious corruption. Not surprisingly, this is the new favourite country of Chagwa.

  2. When they said its UPND causing the shortages now the truth is about to erupt. We said it that there is no way an opposition party be involved in maize export ii full view of the ruling party. That was utterly nonsense to push the blame on HH.

  3. It amazes me that TIZ is even in existence in Zambia. Shouldn’t what Tayali tell all in his article have been unearthed in part by TIZ? This is like attempting to slam the door to a cattle (yea you heard me right, cattle) kraal after all the animals have escaped.

    • But where did Tayali get this information and what makes his revelation special this time around when all others in the past have been rubbished with scorn?

    • Zama what has been rubbished with scorn? He spilled the beans on Rupiahs’ corruption and challenged him to take him to court if he was lying. Have you seen Rupiah suing him?

  4. Since HH is blamed for everything you hear tomorrow on deadnbc that HH influenced Lubinda and FRA execs to steal to make PF look bad. I doubt anyone will be fired or jailed until after August. How do you fire the one you eat with. Worse is happening at RDA. People will run away from Zambia come August’s end. The Bible says a lot about ill gotten wealth

  5. “Mr Tayali further challenged President Lungu to fire Lubinda, his PS Julius Shawa and FRA Executive Director Chola Kafwabulula adding that the three will only continue in their offices if the President is part to what they are doing” end quote. Sorry Mr Tayali I’m sure the pips you are addressing are too busy campaigning to attend to issues that are not priority to them besides Zambians are too docile to fuss about in your face, blatant and premeditated destruction of the country

  6. Expecting Lungu to do anything about this will be like expecting a chicken to give birth to a cow. Those teeth Lungu carries around are just for !diotic smiles. Zero bite in them.

    • Please have the decency to not write-rather scream in all caps.
      I hope PF pays you very well to defend their incompetence, ineptitude and corruption. I also hope you don’t believe in the crap you are typing here.

    • @Eddy – I really hope you are Bemba, because it is only your type who can claim that stealing national resources is doing well. If Kafwabulula is corrupt and abusing FRA funds, that’s not doing well, that’s not success. Getting him to jail is not pulling him down but showing him that thieves are not welcome in Zambia.

  9. Show me your friend and I will tell you who you are. Who are Jameson’s friends? The blind have sung jubilation over Mutembo Nchito, yet since Jameson fraudulently removed him, we have witnessed a high level of fraudulent judgements, partiality and perversion of justice. How then do you expect corruption to end? Did RB go through the whole process of the law to warrant his freedom? How was his immunity restored? What happened to the Judges who should have been subjected to the tribunal? Have they not been fraudulently reinstated and promoted? Why do you think a Judge who cowardly resigned his position for fear of the tribunal would now want to rejoin the judiciary? Is it not because the playing field is now corruptly attractive? Can a person who has elevated corruption to such high…

  10. Nothing will be done with PF in power, the suffering Zambians can only hope for justice on the theft of their money by a change in GRZ.
    How many allegations have been blatantly ignored by lungu ,ACC and PF ?? The new government will have to renew ACC mandate to investigate all these thefts and enter negotiations with the South African government to repatriate our wealth stashed away in that country by the PF thieves.

  12. Why does Tayali have to tell Lungu what to do as if he doesn’t know the best way to handle the issue; Why not just say your story and end there without instructing Lungu to fire the ministers.

  13. Eddy & kudos are birds of the same feather, they are twisted minded, a spirit of corruption leads them – kind of filthy pemonic spirit.

  14. Knowing Zambia I would not be surprised if the police are busy helping the same culprits hide evidence and rehearse how they will be interrogated during investigations. Just sue them in a foreign court because even the lawyers and judges are complicit in such silly acts. It is as if fo.ols will live forever if they plunder an already flaccid population!! Very annoying! Watch them deny! Just watch!
