PF does not understand how 48 houses could be without an owner-Davies Mwila

Headlines PF does not understand how 48 houses could be without an owner-Davies...

Patriotic Front has welcomed President Edgar Lungu’s directive for investigative wings to reopen the probe into the 48 houses suspected to have been bought through proceeds of crime.

In a statement released to the media by PF Media Director Sunday Chanda, PF Secretary General Davies Mwila, who reiterated the ruling Party’s commitment to the fight against corruption through established investigative agencies and promotion of the rule of law, said that the ruling Party could not understand how properties such as houses could end up without anyone owning them.

Mr Mwila has since called on all investigative agencies to do Zambians justice by ensuring that all culprits are brought to justice.

“To our hardworking investigative wings, we are all looking to you as the collective for answers to the many questions we the people are asking. As a Party, we have all the confidence that institutions such as yourselves have all it takes to protect public interest, without fair or favour”, Mr Mwila has said.

The PF Secretary General also reiterated that the fight against corruption must not be politicized but rather confronted as a common enemy of the people.

“Corruption is a cancer that we ought to fight away from any political considerations. It’s our common enemy and must not be politicized if we are to win the fight as a Country”, he has observed.

Mr Mwila further called on members of the Public to help Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC), Zambia Police among others with any leads into the infamous fourth eight (48) houses.

Meanwhile, the Forum for Democracy and Development has demanded for transparent and independent inquiry into the construction of 48 flats in Chalala area in Lusaka.

The FDD is shocked and disappointed with failure by the Anti Corruption Commission to locate the owner of 48 flats built in Lusaka which are suspected to be proceeds of crime.

Yotam Mtayachalo the Party Acting spokesperson said the FDD strongly feels that the Commission is being economical with the truth over this matter because no person or institution can build such structures without valid documentations from relevant authorities.

Mr. Mtayachalo said the FDD is alive to the fact that before any structure is erected plans are submitted for planning authority and dully approved.

He said further, the piece of land on which the properties are constructed should obviously have title deeds bearing the name of the owner which are issued by the ministry of Lands and besides ground and owners rates are paid to the government and the local authority.

Mr. Mtayachalo said it is therefore very strange and not convincing that the whole state machinery can fail to have details of the owner of these properties in question and it is this attitude being exhibited by investigative wings that the public have lost confidence in them.

He said it is in light of the foregoing that the FDD demands that an independent and transparent inquiry over this matter must be instituted to identify the real owner of the property and ensure that the culprit is brought to book regardless his or her status in society so that it can serve as a detterent to would be offenders.

He has also called for radical changes to the Anti Corruption Commission and Drug Enforcement Commission Acts respectively in order to make more robust if they have to effectively deal with sophisticated cases of graft.

Mr. Mtayachalo has also called on Zambians to be patriotic and proactive in speaking out without fear against cases of corruption and money laundering activities as such vices robs the country of the much needed resources for national development and poverty eradication for the vulnerable groups in society.

He said in order to prudently manage and safeguard public resources, the FDD upon being elected into government shall introduce legislative changes to ensure the independence and full autonomy of institutions of good governance such as ACC and DEC to make them more effective in combating corruption and money laundering activities which are on the rise.

  1. Zambia please…why they keep on saying there’s no owner…the owner is there….ashamed to be Zambian at this moment

    • I used to be surprised when I moved to the USA 20 years ago whenever they asked me where I was from…when I say Zambia no one knew where Zambia is….now i understand why…and the interesting part even some Africans don’t even know there’s a country called Zambia…now i know why

    • Where are you from….Zambia
      Oooh you mean Zimbabwe
      No Zambia its a Country next to Zimbabwe
      Oooh ok i see
      Am sure most Zambians in the Diaspora can relate to this

    • The problem of being dull is that one is ready to display his ignorance in public, how can Mwila claim not to know how the 48 houses miraculously found themselves in Lusaka when the Council is under PF, Zesco is under PF, Lusaka water is under PF? Did those houses appear miraculously without a contractor, surveyor, council approval? How come no other party in power in the past could have performed such a surprising miracle? Ba Mwila ubupuba bwena bunenu.

    • And South African Tour operators have stolen our Victoria Falls….they advertise Victoria Falls that its in South Africa…Tourist fly to RSA and the tour companies drive them to Victoria Falls…yes because we are too sleepy….i just had an argument two weeks ago with someone who said she just came back from South Africa to see the Victoria Falls….i told her Victoria Falls is in Zambia and she No….she went to South Africa to see it….Zambia the real Africa

    • These I D I O T S think Zambians are … Mwila has a short memory, remember cabinet ministers and PF members of parliament that they will go to prison if they don’t work hard to win the 2021 general elections.
      Speaking during the Luapula Province party mobilisation launch which was broadcast on Prime TV, Mwila said Luapula Province should save ministers and members of parliament from going to prison.
      “Here in Luapula, we have a lot of support. We have 100 per cent support, but you bring five constituencies with 90,000 votes. Our friends (UPND) one constituency is 90,000 even if it’s in the village. Why are you not voting? That is why I am telling you that if you play, you will cry,” Mwila said.
      “… All the cells will be full. All these people you see behind me will be in cells. Abena…

    • … Abena Chitalu (health minister) (you) will not see him. So you ministers and MPs, don’t think this is a joke. This is serious business, are you listening you ministers. This battle we are in is not for playing, that is why them (UPND) when you see they are telling lies and you listen. So you MPs, councillors stop being selfish.”
      He said the party needed serious mobilisation to maintain its strength in Luapula.
      Mwila said the to do this, the party had given 120 bicycles to each constituency in Luapula with additional school books branded with President Edgar Lungu’s portrait.
      But UPND deputy secretary general Patrick Mucheleka, in a statement, stated that the confession by the PF leadership in Luapula Province just confirmed that they were “dead scared” since they were massively…

    • … since they were massively looting public resources while committing other crimes against the Zambian people.
      “With their usual divisive messages, the PF leadership led by SG Davies Mwila are busy campaigning in Luapula Province, telling people to work hard and retain PF in power or risk being imprisoned. We all know that only law breakers end up in cells, and if convicted, in prisons,” stated Mucheleka.
      “They know that they are thieves and very corrupt, yet only a small clique of them are enjoying their ill-gotten gains. They are basically pronouncing themselves guilty and now want our good people of Luapula Province to save them through the ballot.
      Earlier during the same PF mobilisation launch, the PF leadership took turns attacking Bahati member of parliament Harry Kalaba…

    • The FDD says ‘once elected into office’. Is this a joke of the day? So Edith on her own, solo, has night mares that one day she will be president. It like Tayali. Msoni. And the ganja guy. Bengi. I see. Many are delusional

    • PF doesn’t understand the level of corruption, how can we expect them to understand this case?
      In a normal and civilized country, this would have been a big deal, but pa Zed, completely no reaction.

      WHY IS IT THAT, THINGS MOVE ON THE BASIS OF ECL DIRECTIVES???

    • What I can’t understand is how PF let this one slip through the net. ACC are telling Lungu; but boss you told us to open case. What should we do next….lol

    • Ba PF ni ba pompwe sana. Most likely, these are corrupt Lungu’s flats. 2021 is coming. Once these bandits lose the election in 2021, we’ll audit all of them, starting with gangster in chief corrupt Lungu. Then we’ll have them prosecuted and sent to prison for a hundred years each. Bakabwalala imwe, people are suffering and you’re busy looting the nation’s meager resources. Don’t let Lungu escape to eSwatini in 2021. He’ll have to face the law.

  2. Africa….no wonder it will take more than a billion years to develop….looks like we wont even develope til Jesus comes back

  3. That’s rubbish.
    The least that can be done is to fire the ACC director for running the most incompetent and lDloTIC investigative wing of government. And you wonder why the masses are upset. You are tarnishing the president’s image.
    Fire the Bltch

    • Iwe chi Kudo’s why kubwetuka so?
      You are a bonafide P.F Mposa Mabwe’ & you endorse & enjoy such P.F induced rubbish.
      Have your beloved (P)lunderers (F)ederation sacked you now like Chimbwili, & you are now exposing your bitter grapes??
      THIS THIEVING IS WHAT YOU THRIVE ON & ENJOY, IWE MR NACHITOLAFYE!

    • It is the appointing authority that should be fired og resign for appointing someone incompetent and lDloTIC investigative wing of government

  4. THESE P.F K0LW3’S THINK WE ARE AS DAFT AS THEIR CADRES.
    You all know who those houses belong to.
    Had these houses belonged to H.H, D1ckhhead (Chimp)yongo would have sent the WHOLE ZAMBIA ARMY BATTALION to raid HH’s house, brutalise everyone including his chef’s, maids, peacocks, & guard dogs.
    WHILE YOU ARE AT IT, CAN YOU TELL US HOW A POOR EX KACHASU DRINKING JONATHAN CHAKOLWA FROM CHAWAMA MANAGED TO BUILD MANSION IN ESWATINI?
    We are NOT as daft as your stone throwing Cadres iwe’ chi Rhino skin Davies. Ma Chinese will one day mistake you for a Rhino, & poach you believing your nose is a horn, Changa iwe’!!

    • Why talk too much ,just act like south Africans,if the government is not right change it.even if its not election time by force put somebody else.

  5. Mwila don’t fool the Zambians, you know the owner ad those are the one you rub shoulders with. U think we don’t know?

  6. This silly L.T is now controlled by Chimpyongo.
    Forever blocking comments by people who don’t endorse their silly thieving Paya Farmer P.F.
    USELESS!!

  7. While I appreciate corruption should not be condoned, why have we left real issues affecting the masses. Is 48 houses going to alleviate the poverty zambians are going thru. Even if the owner is identified so what

    • BUT HENRY, YOUR BRAIN DOES NOT FUNCTION, GUMU -GUMU IWE!!
      Don’t you understand that the 48 houses, like 48 Fire Tenders, Toll gates, Eswat1ni Mansions, & other numerous P.F thieving schemes -totalling BILLIONS OF U$DOLLARS being plundered by your family members could build schools, improve, & put medicines in hospitals, pay teachers, lecturers, & civil servants, pay farmers, & provide inputs on time, & THESE ARE “REAL ISSUES”!!!
      I’m really sorry for assuming a P.F stone thrower could reason, BUT unfortunately being a P.F sycophant, you don’t use your brain but your gluteus maximus to reason!
      ZAMBIA WILL FOREVER REMAIN AN UNDERDEVELOPED CHOLERA INFESTED STONE AGE PIT [email protected], COZ OF GOON’S LIKE YOU HENRY!

    • Henry just in case I misunderstood you, which I know I have not, WHAT ARE “REAL ISSUES” TO YOU??
      Tell us!

  8. Why are they wasting time looking elsewhere when they all know the houses belong to no other than Jameson Chagwa Lungu!

  9. This is a conspiracy theory. That pronouncement might as well mean to say that if you catch a thief with stolen property, then he/ she says that the said property is does not belong to him/her, then it is okay to let that person go free. ACC is comprised

  10. As one comedian said, take a bull doozer there and demolish the houses, someone somewhere will get sick and be evacuated abroad for treatment.

  11. Wonder why all these hallucinations. It is very easy to have property made untraceable to an owner through Panama schemes. That small devil knows. He did the same until the lid was blown by a whistle blower in Panama papers. Typical of him, he forgets that he is master of such wealth hiding schemes.

    The circus is entirely the fault of ineptness of investigative agencies in communicating and educating the public. These should be on top explaining their finding of this property being linked to Panama schemes. Its agricultural show time now. Not this imbecilic circus being whipped-up by the un-electable little Lucifer

  12. Owner ship must be proven legally

    Not just saying

    You are the one who built
    You are the one getting rentals
    You are the one this and that

    Please sober up.
    The houses have no legal owner. PERIOD

  13. Can you prove money was stolen during PRIVATIZATION.

    IF you can’t prove even if its true then just keep quiet. PERIOD

  14. Citizens create monsters and then later wonder what happened? When MCS passed on the name ECL was proposed as number 1. A lone voice recalled that a struggling widow had lost her monies to a practicing lawyer who was later sanctioned by LAZ. But as always blind supporters brushed this aside and now? Fast forward once again 2021 is looming loud whispers on some bad transactions during the privatization are looming over HH. The Panama papers are talking like baboons in a maize field yet there are some saying its ok. Please we deserve better let us bid our time our next leader must be non of the above don’t say you were not warned

  15. Some things will never Change, that is just the way it is oh yeh, things will never be the same oh yeh

  16. “We have failed to find the owner of the FORTY HOUSES(48) and we have closed the case”…Ha Ha Ha, and you still remain in your position as Director of ACC minus anybody firing you. What a circus!

  17. Amos Chanda has gone to find a safe place for the “Alfa and the Omega”, right now the Alfa is practicing long-distance running so that when the tables turn no one will catch up with him. LOL

  18. Iwe PF Davies Mwila, dont be silly, you obviously know the owner ACC told you. The owner must be someone within PF, it is certainly not HH, not that I think much about him, but behaviour of your so called “independent” investigative wings including ACC is suspect. How could a public officer who was paid $300,000 by a Chink construction company be acquitted? The evidence and money trail is there in the bank and in fact ACC mentioned it but “chose” not to present it to court. You can see ACC “has decided” not to appeal the acquittal.

  19. 50 AVIC WORKERS IN KITWE CHINGOLA RIOT ARE ARRESTED FOR DEMANDING THEIR CONDITIONS OF SERVICE IMPROVE…. BUT THERE’S IS OWNER OF 48 HOUSES WHO BUILT OVER A PERIOD OF TIME WITH A KNOWN CONTRACTOR WHO HAS BEEN PAID IN FULL FOR THE WORKS. MR MWILA YOUR COMMITMENT TO THE PEOPLE OF ZAMBIA LACKS MERIT. THE ELECTORATE SUFFERS WHEN LEADERS FAIL TO FULFILL THERE MANDATE. 99% OF EMPLOYERS IN ZAMBIA DON’T FOLLOW YOUR NEW SALARIES YET NOTHING IS DONE AND THOSE THAT PROTEST ARE ARRESTED OR FIRED THE SURPRISE MUST BE THE LACK OF SERIOUSNESS IN OUR GOVERNING BODIES.

  20. So if we asked who retired civil servants in public and national interests there will be who will agree.denial,denial everything.jailing is the only way out

  21. Over the fight against corruption and these 48 houses, I do here by wish to state that the President His exellency ECL and his PF cabinent have been measured and found lacking when it comes to fight against corruption. This Dude is not showing leaderhip against corruption, so sad for Zambia.

  22. Davies Mwila Davies Mwila Davies Mwila, are you suggesting that ACC is not under PF government? Or maybe it is under UPND government and headquartered in Dundumwezi.

  23. Mr Mwila is brain dead- how would PF know?

    At least times are changing and the nose is slowly closing in on the crooks.

    We shall win ! , Zambians shall win!
