Home Affairs Minister Stephen Kampyongo has dismissed the move the NDC Consultant Chishimba Kambwili to report President Edgar Lungu and the PF to the Drug Enforcement Commission for money laundering.

Mr Kampyongo who is also PF National Youth Chairman said in an interview that Mr Kambwili is still living in denial after he was fired by President Lungu for corruption.

He said Mr Kambwili should be the last person to complain about lavish campaigns because Zambians have not forgotten how managed to charter Helicopters when campaigning for the PF in the last general elections.

“How can he even begin to question our source of funding as the PF today when just a few years ago he singlehandedly managed to hire Choppers to fly around and campaign for the same party and he hasn’t explained to the nation where he got that money from,” Mr Kampyongo said.

Mr Kampyongo also warned Mr Kambwili to desist from dragging the presidency into what he called petty politics.

“Hon. Kambwili is my big brother but let me offer him a friendly warning, that person he continues attacking occupies a very office in the land, the presidency and the presidency is protected by so many laws. So let him continue on this path and we shall deal with him. This time around he can faint all he would want but we will teach him a lesson,” Mr Kampyongo said.

He maintained that well-wishers are the ones that bankroll the party’s campaigns adding that there is no law that forbids political organizations from raising their own funds for party operations.

Mr Kambwili reported President Lungu to the DEC on Tuesday accusing him of engaging in money laundering activities

Mr. Kambwili, presented a letter of complaint to a Mr. Kelvin Silwimba, a Director at the Commission.

Mr Kambwili bases his accusations on the expensive political regalia associated with the PF.

The Roan MP has since named a number of Chinese Companies operating in Zambia whom he accused of financing most of the activities of the PF such as the branding of motor vehicles, the printing of T-shirts and other accessories.

DEC Public Relations Officer Theresa Katongo confirmed that the Commission has received the complaint letter and it will be subjected to a study by Experts who will determine whether or not the matter raised by Mr. Kambwili, can be pursued further.

  1. Laughable in Zambia but reality its commendable bcuz no one is above the law. Israeli PM is being hounded for corruption,former Brazilian president was removed for corruption and in USA several governors have been removed over corruption.

    • May I suggest that instead of sending these thieves to prison, they cage these corrupt individuals at Munda Wanga gardens as some kind of tourist attraction.

      Imagin! if US$ 42 million used on procurement of scrap fire engines were given to each district to improve health, water and sanitation and schools? ZAMBIA could have been a better place to live.

      God bless Zambia.

    • So Kapyongo can publicly threaten to punish Kambwili without any prosecution?
      If Kambwili was single handly hiring hericopters and Edgar couldn’t report him to DEC, doesn’t mean that Kambwili should the same.
      Maybe PF has grabbed Kambwili donor market.

    • Why even go all the way to Brazil, let Kapyongo visit Kaizer today and ask him about accident with state house vehicle few weeks ago, we pray he will walk again to torment others.
      Kapyongo survived car accident, next time he will be left speechless. Only Kambwili will be visiting him. Stop being so cruel.

      No they should not die,we should do everything in our power to make sure that they do not die,send them to morningside or India,the sins committed by PF are so gross that they should not even use death to escape.Death should be for the luxury of those who could not access drugs because PF and Bokani Soko used their resources to buy the wheelbarrows they call firetrucks.

    • Kambwili is asking DEC to investigate the sources of funds he is not claiming to have prosecutable evidence but believes there is enough cause to investigate. If you follow the corruption case the investigators started investigating a mere filling station and the case grew to capture politicians. Why do u want to turn ordinary citizens into professional investigators it is absurd these claims of bring evidence ….so what do you want ACC and DEC to be doing if they cannot further investigate cases ? Be real not brainless cadreism

  5. @Mulenga Mwamba: HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF THE WORDS “EVIDENCE” OR “PROOF”? THAT IS ALL WE NEED. EVEN IF YOU SHOUT THE LOUDEST ABOUT THE 42 FIRE ENGINES ETC YOU ARE JUST WASTING YOUR TIME IF YOUR CLAIMS DO NOT HAVE A THREAD OF THOSE TWO WORDS ENOUGH TO BE PROSECUTED IN A COURT OF LAW. AND PLEASE AVOID INSULTS. LEARN TO DELIBERATE WITH A SOBER AND SOUND MIND. DO NOT EXPOSE THE DEPTH OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

    • Allegations are made and then investigators have to investigate and in the course of the investigations they collect evidence that will either exonerate the suspect or get him jailed my dull PF friend. That’s how it works so go and tell that also to your equally dull president.

  6. Fake fainting by Kambwili will not save him this time round. Find better ways of punching above your weight Mr Kambwili. We know you are a coward fond of making noise. After buying a honourally Degree you have not made any effort to think rationally.

  8. That man in brown shoes if I remember correctly is very very corrupt, he once impounded my truck some few years as it was ferrying some consignment from Namibia. He was in Zambia Revenue Authority vehicle. Useless man I tell you but it seems Kabwili has found him useful.

  9. Zambia has never faced this level of corruption, moral decay , debt , tribal divisions as of now under lungu…..these days being called a corrupt theif is nothing to worry about. As lungu himself does not deny that he is a corrupt theif….

    Infact lungu is the only leader in the whole world who does not deny that he is a corrupt theif. Civil servants have seen this and also have no problem with corruption.

    Lungu only fights corruption if he is not in on the corrupt deals or if he thinks those accused of being corrupt want his job.
    As a matter of fact if lungu could legalize corruptionhe would…..only to protect himself and get people of his back.

    Where have you ever seen a president being called a corrupt theif , point blank , and he accepts ?

  10. “…..that person he continues attacking occupies a very office in the land, the presidency and the presidency is protected by so many laws…..”

    He has scandalized the presidency , let lungu address allegations that he is a corrupt theif….

  11. The reason lungu does not deny to the Zambian public that he is a corrupt theif is that more questions will be asked , he will be forced to address deeper allegations…….as the a lawyer will tell the accused suspect , the best defence is silence.

    That is lungu , keeping silent when he is accused of being a corrupt theif. Because of the office he occupies , this silence can not go on and calls and accusations will get louder…..

    • @Spaka Like Iilo:THERE IS NO LEGAL PROVISION THAT COMPELS THE PRESIDENT TO KEEP RESPONDING TO FAKE ALLEGATIONS. IT WILL BE A WASTE OF TIME. “NOT ALL THOSE DOGS BARK AT ARE THIEVES”. THE SAME NAYSAYERS WILL TURN BACK AND SAY WHY ARE YOU RESPONDING IF YOU ARE NOT GUILTY? SO ECL HAS OUTSMSRTED YOU BY NOT RESPONDING. HE IS APPLYING WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS IN PROVERBS 26:4 THAT “DO NOT ANSWER A FOOL ACCORDING TO HIS FOLLY, OR YOU YOURSELF WILL BE

      It not a matter of outsmarting any one, it is upholding morals fit for the highest office of the land , the presidency.

      Lungu by not denying that he is a corrupt theif is not outsmarting any but him self badala…..that is his problem.

      Since he thinks that keeping quete on allegations of being a corrupt theif is outsmarting opponents ……this is confirmation that he is then a corrupt theif.

  12. IN MY VIEW PF SHOULD ENCOURAGE PRIVATE MEDIA BECAUSE IT TAKES OUR ANGER AWAY, WITHOUT THIS WAY OF EXPRESSING OUR ANGER WE COULD ALL HAVE BEEN BURNING FROM WITHIN AND THE OUTCOME WOULD HAVE BEEN A BIGGER PROBLEM THAN ZIMBABWE. I SALUTE THE MEDIA BECAUSE SOMETIMES I WAKE UP SO ANGRY BUT END UP LAUGHING AFTER READING ONE OR TWO STORIES THAT DIRECTLY ADDRESS MY ANGER, ESPECIALLY FROM THE COMMENT SECTION.

  13. Even me I laughed it off. In this country someone occupies the Presidency and you report him to the ACC or police and you expect the sitting President to be summoned for questioning? It is true that Kambwili is living in denial after heavily campaigning for Lungu in 2016 only to be thanked with a dismissal.

  14. These debates should send the right message to the reader but when they come full of spelling mistakes, the reader has to guess what is intended to be conveyed. Kambwili has too much time to waste. Spend your time finishing off the Kambwili Estates rather than reporting ECL. Where did the money come from to rush you to South Africa when you cheated death?

  15. The opposition should make use of this weakness of lungu……this is lungus vaunrability ……his failour to deny that he is a corrupt theif….

    Even the PF kaponya rats on LT have no comeback when you tell them their leader does not attempt to deny that he is a corrupt theif

    • @Spaka Like lilo: IS IT MORALLY RIGHT TO BE MASQUERADING HERE WITH FAKE NAMES SUCH AS “Spaka like lilo”? WHY HIDE YOUR REAL NAME? ISNT THIS DECEPTION? AND TO WHOM SHOULD THE PRESIDENT RESPOND? TO PEOPLE WITH FAKE NAMES WITH NO TRACEABLE EXISTENCE ON SOCIAL MEDIA? IN THE ZAMBIAN OBSERVER OF 8TH FEBRUARY, THE PRESIDENT CATEGORICALLY DENIED YOUR ALLEGATIONS OF CORRUPTION AT MULUNGUSHI INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE CENTRE AND ON SEVERAL OTHER FORA. NO ONE BELIEVES THE CORRUPTION STORY FOR LACK OF EVIDENCE. THATS WHY PF HAS KEPT WINNING ELECTIONS. I CAN HELP YOU, JUST GOOGLE ” LUNGU DENIES CORRUPTION ALLEGATIONS”. AND YOU WILL FIND YOUR ANSWERS. BUT IT DEPENDS ON WHETHER YOU ARE GENUINE WITH YOUR SINCERE.

  18. @Spaka like lilo: THAT IS EXACTLY THE PROBLEM. IT IS NOT THE “EVIDENCE” WE SHARE ON THE STREETS AND SOCIAL MEDIA. IT IS WHAT YOU CAN PROVE BEFORE THE POLICE, THE DEC AND THE COURTS OF LAW. NOT WHAT YOU SHARE WHILE DRINKING CHIBUKU. I CANNOT PROVE YOUR ALLEGATIONS EVEN IF YOU SHARED THEM WITH ME. TAKE THAT TO COURT AND SEE IF IT WILL STAND. THEN COME TO ME.
