UPND Elections Chairperson Garry Nkombo

The ruling Patriotic Front (PF) wants United Party for National Development (UPND) Mazabuka Member of Parliament Honourable Garry Nkombo criminally prosecution for forgery after Mr Nkombo produced before the floor of Parliament, an alleged forged letter confirming a payment of K3 million in favour of Patriotic Front Secretary General Hon Davies Mwila, which was purported to have been written by ZESCO.

Office of the Patriotic Front Chief Whip had written to ZESCO seeking confirmation on the authenticity of the letter which the Mazabuka legislator had laid on the floor. ZESCO in their response established that the said letter was forged, deceitful and malicious.

This prompted Patriotic Front Deputy Chief Whip and Kabwe Central MP Hon Tutwa Ngulube to rise on a serious point of order. He asked the Speaker if Hon Nkombo was in order to lay on the floor of the house a bogus and malicious letter. The Deputy Chief Whip further requested the Speaker to refer the matter to the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) in accordance with Standing order no. 53 and Section 18, 21 and 27 of the National Assembly Powers and Privileges Act.

The purported letter from Zesco

PF now wants Hon Garry Nkombo to face criminal prosecution following his act to author and or circulate a fabricated document with intent to deceive.

    • This party will bring war in the country if not checked. They’re power hungry starting from hh lying that Lungu wants to kill him. Alarming people that PF this PF that. How do one produce a fake letter in the name of making a name for the party. Upnd is a very dangerous party

    • Did Nkombo really think he could get away with such a cheap move? I sometimes wonder what UPND really stands for nowadays. The Party really seems morally bankrupt, directionless, and lost. Lord, Lord, Lord!!!

    • When it goes to court then you will know it’s real. Besides everyone knows that PF milk Zesco for party activities.

    • The quality of opposition in Zambia is very low.

      We have a government that is looting the treasury unchecked. A reckless government interested in serving only themselves, ignoring the plight of its citizens. And the opposition is clueless on how to bring these thieves to account.

    • This is how dangerous Southern Province based UPND is…..these guys are desperate for power and they love themselves to the extreme….they care less for Zambia so dont be deceived….i dont dont like PF that much but UPND is something I can’t imagine ruling Zambia.UPND has a an agenda for Tonga people……all the Tongas I know are UPND die hards

    • Facts are that Zesco did release the funds yet they struggle to pay their workers. Let’s look at the bigger picture than hate each other, we are all Zambians and a better Zesco is good for us all. Firstly, let us request to subpoena Zesco management to clarify the matter, than encouraging abuse of public funds.

    • Well, ask Saidi Chimya, the author of the letter. It will be great too if our so called Zambian journalists can look through transactions of Zesco’s contigency account to see if K3m was withdrawn as purported. This letter can be authenticated easily.

  4. Depends on where he got the letter from for him to believe it was authentic. Again we have to be careful about social media. It is difficult to know what is fake news. Some authors even deny their own docs once it goes viral.

  5. If at all it is fully established that Gary Nkombo produced a fake letter from Zesco then that letter must have been produced by someone from Zesco.When the matter goes to court Nkombo will certainly reveal the details

    • He could have easily authenticated the letter by picking the phone and calling ZESCO before taking it Parliament and accuse PF for nothing. We does people in UPND get so easily excited if they think they can implicate PF in some crime? They get so blinded that they even fail to do the basics before they go forward with the accusations. Sometimes they just make stuff up!

    • He’s not English but rather your former Teacher of English.

      It’s clear the REDs are all intoxicated with lies. Their boss has said a number of issues in the recent past which he has failed to substantiate. Nkombo, where is your integrity?
      I thought you were a presidential material…alas politics has diluted your intelligence.

  8. There’s so much politics of hatred in Zambia. When Sata was given forged letter purportedly written by Mwanawasa, because of his hatred for LPM, MCS didn’t think because launching his attack. He ended up in the same dock with his nephew Andeleki who gave him the subject letter. The desperation and hatred in the UPND will soon lead them into deep trouble. While it’s true that the Party in power abuses SOEs, they don’t do it in such an awkward way. FTJ almost ran down ZANACO, LPM Zesco, KK ZCCM but there was no such letters

  12. Parliament is a house of serious business where real issues that affect the people, constituencies, that elected them, are expected to be debated and discussed for the betterment of citizens. Since UPND came on political scene, we have seen with sadness how Parliament has been relegated to something else. In the case at hand, its purely UPND strategy to spread falsehood, bring anarchy and discontent in the nation all in the name of one selfish man called HH. The matter at hand is a serious one because an elected MP cannot mislead the nation through Parliament with unsubstantiated allegations. If this man is not expelled and severely punished and jailed for not less than 3 years, it will serve as a presidency for others to go with false information to Parliament to discredit innocent…

  13. contd
    We are all aware as Zambians, including those from the Southern Province that UPND under HH is completely lost, directionless and of no value to the masses. Is it a coincidence that even the former Archbishop can start predicting bloodshed and chaos in elections year which is three years away? Zambians MUST REJECT these UPND elements massively in 2021 so that they can understand that you cant impose yourself on people when they dont approve you, takwaba!

  16. Democracy is not from God. I have wondered why it has been so much embraced such that even denominations which claim to use the bible are strict advocates of democratic way of doing everything.Help me identify where in the scripture God uses democracy.
    Where man has agreed to do certain things as a result of majority vote is misleading. what does nature teach us on Two peaces of meat thrown to the ground, one fresh and the other one rotten, where will you get the largest number of flies?
    We think by insulting our leadership,making allegations and many other ways, we are expressing our democratic rights. Democracy is not biblical for Christian Denominations rethink your democracy for it may be demonic and deception.

  18. Garry is a very clever legislator , I guess he did his investigations before placing the allegation on the floor, remember this is an allegation DPP will study and make a decision, don’t write options and get angry.Remember some PF cadres are on Zesco payroll .wina azalila wait and see!!

  20. Continue denying ba dununa but the fact is this letter is authentic and that is why PF is just bluffing – they will not take it to court. The letter is real. PF carders are so easily cheated and no analytical skill. In court you will see the truth.

  22. The letter is headed “CONFIDENTIAL”.So ZESCO will naturally deny it.
    But the statement of accounts and banking transactions will not conceal the $3million payment . I hope Hon Garry Nkombo also obtained;
    1)a print out of ZESCO accounts related to “contingency budget” for the current period,
    2)copy of outgoing wire transfer from ZESCO’s bank or cheque stub from ZESCO Accounts department,
    3)copy of incoming wire transfer at the recipient bank,
    4)copy of deposited cheque at the recipient bank,
    Under Zambia’s anti money laundering laws as well as best accounting practices, this information must be readily available.

  23. there is a lot of truth in the letter. PF and ZESCO are just denying knowledge of the letter to save face after being caught pants down. these crooks. this is how they have been rigging elections. yet f.o.o.l.s on L.T. want to defend lies of P.F. and Zesco. A day of reckoning is coming. Payback day is coming.

  24. Well it’s quite interesting to read this. As the majority of Zambian lawyers seem to dwell on frauds, and it’s like that’s what they are taught in UNZA and ZIALE… I have Ben very dissapointed in detecting several deception and Fraudulwnt acts by lawyers, committed on the Court, and Judges seem to be fine with such criminality and Fraudlent litigations. The legal profession ought to be Refirmed and shamed of its Fraudulwnt tactics. Let the law take its course.. Fraud is a wicked evil, if Parliament to,erases this, then it should be disolved. So should the Constitutional Court,mwhich compounded and acted upon a fraud committed on it by Makebi Zulu and his Advocates; plus 12 other lawyers who forged, tempered with my exhibits and made false represention before the Constitutional Court…

    • Even if it were so, they can’t be so careless. That’s why Nkombo used parliament because he may have some protection against prosecution.

  25. The system is infiltrated. Nkombo could have used some sympathizer at Zesco to manufacture that letter. So Nkombo if he can’t stand electricity being applied to his between butox will sing and the author of the document will be revealed.

  26. PF has been milking Zesco through such demands so much so that they have now forced zesco to apply for an increase in tariffs of over 150% and this increment to be Bourne by the poor zambians.

  28. After change of govt the letter will be authentic. Now employees fear to be retired on National Interest hence denying that the letter is bonafide. Now employees just say and do whatever the part and its government wants them to say and do. The same guy from ZESCO who has denied that the letter is genuine will be the first to turn into state witness
