Police open criminal docket against Airtel Zambia

Headlines Police open criminal docket against Airtel Zambia

In an unprecedent move, The Zambia Police Service have opened a Criminal docket against Airtel Networks Zambia one of the country’s biggest mobile phone service provider.

This follows the successful lodging of a complaint by Lusaka based Journalist Thomas Allan Zgambo.

Mr. Zgambo alleges that former Special Assistant to Late President Michael Sata ,George Chella and other private citizens including Airtel employees did divert his telephone data to fictitious numbers in the name of Evaristo Phiri.

According to a Press Statement made available to the Lusaka Times, Mr. Zgambo says it has taken him close to four years to investigate this case.

He says the docket was opened after Attorney General Likando Kalaluka assured him that government had nothing to do with the interception of messages.

Further, Mr. Zgambo says in the statement that it has not been easy to open the docket because the Police were adamant to do so as they also believed it was a government assignment until the letter from the Attorney General was made available to them.

Meanwhile, the Lusaka based Journalist has warned Airtel to stay away from moves to bribe any member of the executive or the Judiciary as he is aware of what the board meeting last Friday decided.

Early this year Director of Public Prosecutions Lilian Shawa Siyuni allowed Mr. Zgambo to Co Prosecute the matter under Private Prosecution.

  1. Problem is all Parastatals are run by unqualified PF cadres. Solution is simple, get qualified people and stop political interference, them most of these moribund institutions like ZAMTEL will operate efficiently and profitably

  2. @Mpemfu, if you are qualified, how come you are not even a CEO for any of the many big private companies operating in Zambia. We have “inteligent and qualified” people on social media and yet they chaps cannot even manage to build a house and let alone use their “social medial intelligence” to properly run their affairs. Problem with Zambians

  3. Zambia in the last few days has impressed me. Bank of Zambia puts in place measures so as banks cannot steal from citizens. Today Zambia police is working on behalf of civilians and investigating a corporate entity. Jesus has heard our prayers and now we are rolling in wonder and goodness.

    • #5, you are right! UPND are dumb! They think Airtel is a Parastatal and HH is the President of all Parastatals he sold and got the money!
