Mr Mulongoti is also alleged to have received K750.00 cash gratification from Mr. Chitutu and his wife through Mr. Lapson Muyemba as an inducement or reward for him to prepare a Social Welfare Report required for the sentencing of their child, David Kaulu, a juvenile offender, in a matter where the said David Kaulu was jointly charged with Titus Muyemba and convicted for drug offences.

    • This useless ACC is wasting our tax on this trash while the big fish is left to enjoy their stolen wealth. On the copperbelt a PS stole ZMW1.6m in 2013 & ACC are doing a cover up. This PS paid this money to a nephew for a grader that’s never been supplied for over 3 years.

    • Mnnnnnmmmm ka K1.5m fye, even Kaiser is laughing off. Can you imagine how much those state House guys make between lunch meetings? 4 lunches = 4 envelopes a day x $1000 = $4000.
      We know the system guys.

    • This is ridicul0us. What about Lungu’s corrupt cabinet who have already started amassing illegal wealth, as reported by Lungu himself? Why don’t ACC go after bigger fish too? This is nothing but a publicity stunt meant to show that ACC is doing something. If ACC is serious about fighting corruption, they need to go after the big crooks in PF too, who are hauling in illegal monies into their bank accounts.

  1. You are swiftly arresting small fish but big BUFFOONS like Chi Kambwili (CK) you even given them notice that we are looking into them!!

  2. I said it cowards acc,busy anouncing the arrest of the poor guy,while you leave real issues behind, kambwili’s issure is fading fast like a kamwala jeans.thats fake news ba acc.

  3. We ll continue calling you corrupt pipo not until you prove your selves Innocent by following up serious issues like tht one for ck.without interfered by government official
    Hyenas how go for already dead meat.

  4. This organization has no shame. Honestly, they rush to arrest a poor citizen over trivial issues when criminals in Govt whose corrupt activities have resulted in the death and deprivation of many are freely moving about ready to commit more felonies.

  5. Stu*p*id ACC. Go for the real thief Kambwili. What are you waiting for?MWAMONA INVEST is located in Francistown, Botswana. Company is working in General business business activities.
