Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili says he is as clean like Dr Kenneth Kaunda’s handkerchief after he was questioned by the ACC for corruption.

Dr Kambwili was on Thursday questioned by the ACC for corruption.

He reacted after the interrogations that he was a clean man.

The Roan MP described the corruption allegations as bogus.

“I am squeaky clean just like Dr Kaunda’s handkerchief, the corrupt people know themselves and time is of the essence,” Dr Kambwili said.

He also charged that says it is better for those in government to tell someone they dont want to work with them instead of intimidating them through arms of government.

Meanwhile, ACC Public Relations Manager Timothy Moono said the Commission would analyse the information obtained from Kambwili and decide on the next step in the investigation.

Dr Kambwili was speaking to journalists shortly after a ten-hour long interrogation by the ACC ended at 17:30.

“It leaves much to be desired with our kind of politics in Zambia that if politically you differ, you want to use the arm of the law to fix others, that’s not the way it should be,” Dr Kambwili said.

“We must learn to be honest with one another, If you don’t want to work with somebody, it’s better to tell them that ‘I don’t want to work with you’ other than bringing in other arms of government to intimidate those you feel you don’t like.”

And Kambwili alleged that there is rampant corruption in the PF government.

“And for your own information, there is corruption all over, everywhere. In the street, in government and those who are corrupt know themselves and when their time to answer comes, they will answer but it is very very unfortunate to point at clean men like me, very clean, politically, economically, very clean that they are corrupt,” said Dr Kambwili said.

“I have been taken aback, when I was fired, the President said ‘I am going to fire some ministers’, it has shocked me, and I was waiting because from the time I was fired six months ago, I have never been called by the ACC. I was only called today and I have been waiting all these six months to see the other ministers who are going to join in being fired for being corrupt.”

Dr Kambwili said he was shocked by some of the properties brought up during the interrogations as they were not his and he knew nothing about them.

Meanwhile, Mr. Moono said the Commission would analyse the information from Kambwili and decide on what next step to take in the investigation.

He said the investigations bordered on a number issues such as allegations on the abuse of authority of office, the acquisition of property beyond the past and present emoluments (official), and general accusations of corruption.

Mr Moono said the interview was conducted in a cordial manner.

In November last year, the ACC confirmed probing Dr Kambwili over his accumulation of wealth after Lusaka Times exclusively revealed that the Commission had instituted investigations.

The investigations began just a few days after President Edgar Lungu warned that he would fire all ministers engaged in corruption.

In a statement, ACC public relations manager Timothy Moono confirmed that Kambwili was under probe for corrupt practices.

“Following recent media queries on whether the Anti-Corruption Commission is conducting investigations on alleged corrupt practices against Hon. Chishimba Kambwili, former Information and Broadcasting Minister, I wish to inform you that there has been an inquiry against Hon. Kambwili on allegations of corrupt practices,” stated Mr. Moono.

“These investigations are on-going and the Commission would therefore not wish to comment further as this may jeopardize the investigations.”

The ACC is believing to be probing among other issues, the plush villas which Dr Kambwili constructed on land allegedly belonging to Luanshya Golf Club.

    Kambwili statements are UPND sympathetic related in trying to mock the Givernment of president Lungu.

    I’m beginning to deslike him.

    I completed my PhD and my analysis is that he is a trouble maker the PF could do without.

    I don’t like him anymore.

    Thanks

      Most if not all of these Ministers own assets that are not commensurate with their wages. Have we seen any of them called when in office ?? This is pure nonsense by the ACC and the should have B#lls enough to sermon even those in Power … surely Dora was not even called to discuss the Maizegate scandal. For this reason as much as I don’t like Kambwilis ways, just let him be if you can not apply the rules evenly.

      Kambwili is very clean. Am happy EL took that route to have him checked so that he can be declared innocent.

      This is exactly what is happening to HH except that HH is guity as charged.

We only hope that acc finds you clean so that Pf govt will ‘ve an answer to give should anyone question about your being involved in corruption. Don’t open your mouth too wide. Put water in your mouth and don’t swallow it.

      Doctor Mushota,
      What is your specialization?; I mean what novelty and new knowledge did you add to your domain of specialization for your Ph.D.? When did you complete the Ph.D. and which university are you an alumnus of? I’m curious because you seem to never want to miss an opportunity to rub it into us mere mortals that you have a Ph.D. Well could it be that in fact people may not even care what you know unless you tell them what you have done with what you know! Just curious.

      When a president is going to fire anyone on allegations of corruption you would expect he has impeccable evidence and a dossier ready for prosecution. This is why I insist Edgar is a below average lawyer. Him having being deregistered by LAZ speaks volumes. 6 months down the line and ACC has nothing against Kambwili..how embarrassing for the President and his team

      YOU ARE INNOCENT(CLEAN) UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY(DIRTY)
      ===================================
      If you were in court, I was gonna say STFU CK. Good for you, you can yap as much as you please considering that you are just being investigated by the ACC. There is no contempt here.
      I have a soft heart for you CK. You are charismatic. In fact more you have more charisma than incarcerated poor HH. I hold one or two things about you though, “MOUTH DIARRHEA”; If only you toned down a little bit. But that will be like, taking CK outa CK. To cut the story short, you are not presidential material. I like your bullying nature and your straightforwardness. Zambia needs ch(a)ps like you around, though.

      True there’s corruption in govt and in fact in every facet of life in zambia.
      Corruption is treated like a normal way of life in zambia.
      The fact is that kambwili like all thieves (in ruling and opposition parties) will never admit their illegally acquired wealth.
      Its true kambwili has property he cannot properly account for… in luanshya and elsewhere.
      But Let’s not have selective application of the law…. let the law ba applied firmly but fairly across the whole national spectrum

    The problem with Zambian politicians is that they are only “clean” and see corruption in government when they are no longer part of the government or are yet to get into power. Kambwili cannot tell me the Cabinet he served in was clean. Why didn’t he resign on moral grounds? Why did it take him so long to realize that there’s rampant corruption in the PF government which he vigorously campaigned for?

    While he may be right about the rampant corruption in government, he is not squeaky clean!

      “I was waiting because from the time I was fired six months ago, I have never been called by the ACC. I was only called today and I have been waiting all these six months to see the other ministers who are going to join in being fired for being corrupt.”

      SIX MONTHS? Is this how long it takes the ACC just to summon someone who has been accused of the most serious crime of CORRUPTION in GOVERNMENT?

      This ACC is truly useless! All employees should have their pay withheld for SIX MONTHS! They are chewing Zambian Taxpayers money for nothing! Have they even prosecuted ONE CASE successfully?

      We cannot afford such complete and utter NONSENSE. This shows without doubt there is no political will by Lungu to clamp down on the corruption we can see EVERY DAY ALL OVER ZAMBIA!

    Ba Kambwili, there is a parliamentary committee report that was done a long time ago, which clearly revealed your corruption on the Luanshya Golf course. This is were you built your villas, way above your income. You grabbing government tenders while you were a minister and doing many short cuts in the process. Give us a break, you corrupt people. You boast of riches, when you are thieves.

    That does not sound like the talk of a confident man.It is likely he has abused the office before,give. the fact they all have .Knowing that most of this politicians do not know how to launder money or asserts,he probably thinks that the trail of ownership of money or asserts will not be traced to him.There are certain tools used to investigate this kind of cases and I believe ACC should have them.If I was his lawyer I could advise him not to comment on the case but it seems he has not lawyered up yet .

    You are just corrupt like those Directors of radio Yatsani who because of love of money have forgotten the importance evangelization through the radio.

    They have deliberately removed play entries so that the international community cannot listen to what is happening in zambia.

    The only stations that we people in diaspora are able to get are those connected to HH.

    Shame to those ROMAN CATHOLIC PRIESTS in charge of Radio Yatsani. U are a big shame to the Catholic Church.

    ECL is not responsible for your predicament, but you are. An issue here is that you Kambwili are one of the pioneers of tribal politics in Zambia. You used your political muscle to culture ethnic divisive talk on print and electronic media. Admit that you have been arrogant. Equally introspect that you have wrongly TRANSLATED your pride for Frankness. ECL is just doing what you did to others. I am encouraging you become spiritually baptised (Born Again) and say this prayer “Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. But from today onwards, I believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose on the Third Day and I accept Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Saviour. Amen!.” The only way to destroy that demon of PRIDE in you is by accepting “Jesus the Anointed “. Being smart is being humble. Take…

    @ Warlord
    I am academically in tandem with your analysis regarding Mushota’s PhD status. The area of his/her specialization is unknown. It would be educative if the main knowledge gap filled by his/her”PhD” dissertation/thesis is highlighted and from which University it was obtained. Of course, this is not an academic platform, but it can be. This “Mushota” is rich in typographical errors.

Remember how, as minister, you fiercely defended all those fuel hikes, screaming that “only the rich will be affected”.
