The Drug Enforcement Commission in Lusaka has arrested and jointly charged three Police officers for being in possession of over K2 million counterfeit notes.

The three are identified as Chief Inspector Maybin Kasezya, 43, of Chelston Police Station, Inspector Maureen Nawa, 45, also of Chelston Police Station and Sergeant Joyford Mambe, 29, of Nakonde Police Station who is believed to have couriered the contraband.

The suspects have been charged with being in possession of counterfeit notes amounting to over K2.4 million in K100 bills after being intercepted in Lusaka’s Chelston Township when they were about to transact.

DEC Public Relations Officer Theresa Katongo who confirmed the arrest said the Commission strongly reiterates its caution to members of the public to familiarise themselves with the features of the Zambian Kwacha and look out for unscrupulous individuals behind a spate of counterfeit notes as the Commission will not relent in its mandate to ensure that individuals behind such illicit activities are brought to book.

The suspects are currently in Police custody and will appear in court soon.

I like the names. No Bembas. The police must do their prosecution well. Those guys will claim ” intercepting the money” and where examining it before recording the crime. What evidence shows they are the owners. Did they find them with printing implements. Or they had attempted to use the money. Get a good lawyer. Not that I condone what they are alleged to have done. But they can easily get away with murder at law.
