  1. Ba DEC theirs bigger fish to catch, for starters take a look at the $1,000,000 fires tenders and $1,300bn Lusaka Ndola road and many more.

    • @Shallow, Accounting firms work on commission, the lead person on an account gets paid commission. The percentage of the commission is based on the value of the assets.
      He earned he’s money and invested wisely in the livestock business.
      I hope your little brain can understand my simple explanation.

  2. Is it really necessary to reveal the full home address of this person ? How are you able to protect his family from abuse ? Such a small sum of money compared to the millions wasted by government.
