National Democratic Congress President Chishimba Kambwili says the 48 houses in Lusakas Chalala area forfeited to the State by the Anti Corruption Commission belong to a former state house aide.
Mr Kambwili has further disclosed that attempts are being made to create an impression that the houses in question belong to Congolese business man Moise Katumbi.
He says State House is panicking over the houses in questions because of the person involved.
Mr Kambwili said the ex state house staff last week held several meetings at State House to cook up a story on the ownership of the mansions and has since urged Mr Katumbi not to accept the houses as his.
He adds that he respects Mr. Katumbi and believes he will not accept to involve himself in dubious attempts to claim ownership of the vilas.
Mr Kambwili said the Ex State house aide is using a named business executive on the Copperbelt to try and coerce Mr Katumbi to accept the houses.
And Mr Kambwili has urged Congolese business executives besides Mr Katumbi not to claim the 48 houses.
Speaking at a media briefing, Mr Kambwili has vowed to deal with any Congolese business executives who might try and claim the houses
