    • Arrest all thieves, throw them in jail and those with pending cases all need to be relieved of duty.

    • ECL, do the right thing and prevent this man from accessing GRZ premises until all the cases have been concluded by legal institutions.

      God bless Zambia.

    • This is what happens when too much Kwacha is printed secretly and shared among crooks.

      FIrst, they buy up as many US Dollars as they possibly can. This is what has depleted the US Dollar reserves, and devalued the Kwacha.

      Secondly, they buy up real estate in proxy names. This is what the ACC are referring to.

      There you have it.

    • And this man is still attending Cabinet Meetings …what shambles by this LAZY LUNGU on whose time is he going to attending all those court sessions and lawyer consultations? How incompetent can one be as a President not to sack this guy?

    • This guy with all these charges being leveled against him, should not be allowed to continue performing his ministerial duties. It’s like letting a fox hang around a hen’s house. Obviously clueless corrupt Lung doesn’t care about fighting corruption, otherwise he would’ve kicked this guy out a long time ago. But corrupt Lungu knows that he’s equally corrupt, and maybe this Chitotela guy has some dirt on him. How I wish someone like Magufuli was president in Zambia, instead of this corrupt fellow called Lungu.

  1. Mr President, this is time to act if you want Zambians to take you seriously on corruption issues.

    • Even if he acted on this minister, any Zambian with even one quarter of brain would never take Lungu seriously.

      So if you take Lungu seriously, check your brain size please.

  2. Imagine this is the guy that the President is busy protecting? Please do the right thing for once and fire this criminal masquerading as a minister. All the credibility in the fight against corruption will be lost forthwith. This thief has amassed a of of wealth why are you shielding him? There has to be something than meets the eye. Just spill the beans Chitotela iwe.

    • Lungu is just protecting himself.

      If anyone thinks Lungu is not corrupt, please let them check their brain size.

  3. We have sunk to very low levels in Zambia that a Minister under investigation is still in position. Any way the bible says we need to forgive.

    • This Bible [email protected] is what causes our economic, & developmental stagnation!
      These Crooks steal & don’t care of consequences, coz they know you will turn the other cheek, & accept the untold suffering their actions cause, & forgive, as Bible advises you to forgive, & forget, coz you will be rewarded in heaven.
      NO!!! THIS BIBLE NONSENSE, & SHAM P.F PROJECTS LIKE THE RESOURCE DRAINING RELIGIOUS MINISTRY, SHOULD BE CONDEMNED WITH THE CONTEMPT THEY DESERVE.
      ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!

  4. Imagine this masquerade going to represent the country at international forum as minister! I know some countries where he would not be allowed entry. Awe this country has really gone to dogs.

  5. I feel sorry for Ronald Chitotela. Those with a rich criminal CV that they’re even mentioned in Panama Papers don’t get caught. Chitotela is a villager from Kawambwa that’s why he’s in trouble. People are still crying for their pension because their money smartly found itself in Cayman Islands. I won’t talk about fire tenders. So Chitotela start eating ubwali bwa tute to be stronger because you don’t know whether another charge will come before the next meal. Mwanawasa fought corruption through Richard Sakala who went to prison over a Toyota Hilux Surf but real criminals survived. Golden Mandandi was sacrificed like a goat on Eid Fitr. I am seeing Chitotela going the same way, Lord have mercy on your son for You are his only hope

  7. I am sure from the police he headed straight to the office for work. Imagine in the private company you are accused of stealing petty cash and your boss allows you to go back and continue keeping the petty cash box in your care

  8. Ley him go free. The culture in zambia is that of talking and never acting hence that is why we dont see any results. When will we wake up and hold these foolish leaders accountable. We complain in silence yet the actions of these corrupt leaders hurt us even more. We let thieves go free like RBB and FTJ which would have been good examples to deter would be offenders. Everything bad happening in the country should be blamed on its people then its leaders and when the country is doing fine its people must be commended and the leaders ultimately blaim and praise should be on the people. Act before it is too late

  9. Instead of the cso demonstrating over NDF these are matters they should demonstrate over , solicite the support from donors to get this minister and the like out of cabinet. On the other hand ECL must know that keeping people like this in cabinet is giving the opposition enough campaign material for 2021. The message of corruption kicked Bwezani out of state house because he couldn’t discipline all those around him with corruption accusations. Zambians appear docile but can be decisive. KK and Bwezani are still around to consult. The two presidents to lose political power in the history of this nation.

    • The challenge we have is that the Zambian president seems not to even care despite many calls to suspend ministers facing corruption allegations.

  12. I have a compromise win-win solution that will satisfy both His Excellency Mr Lungu, concerned citizens and trib.als: give the disgraced minister unpaid leave for the duration of the investigations and court cases.

    By the way, why has ACC targetted only (dis) Honourable Chitotela when virtually all the cabinet is in this line of business? Especially those who donate large sums of money to churches, markeeters etc from unknown sources which definitely excludes their known five digit cabinet salaries and allowances.
