Roan Member of Parliament Chishimba Kambwili

NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili’s planned questioning at the Drug Enforcement Commission Headquarters in Lusaka on Wednesday morning failed to take off.

This was after Dr Kambwili’s lawyers informed the Commission that their client was unable to attend the questioning as he was unwell nursing a bout of Malaria.

DEC Deputy Spokesman Kamufisa Manchishi confirmed in an interview that Dr Kambwili will be expected to be interviewed next week.

Mr Manchishi stated that Dr Kambwili’s summoning was a normal process in the operations of the Commission.

“We wish to clarify that the Commission has summoned Mr Chishimba Kambwili for an interview to enable him provide any further information he may have in relation to the allegations he made earlier this week. The interview is a routine process undertaken to validate information that may be of help in any enquiries investigators may have,” Mr. Manchishi said.

He said the Commission operates on an open door policy which allows any member of the public to provide any information they may have in relation to illicit activities under the Commission’s mandate and be treated with utmost confidentiality.

“An invitation to an informer to furnish further information on allegations does not in any way constitute an arrest as it is provided for under the Public Interest Disclosure (Protection of Whistle blowers) Act No. 4 of 2010. The Commission urges members of the public to take advantage of the open door policy and always report any information they may have on illicit activities without fear of retribution or intimidation.”

  1. So that you inform Mtaware of what people know? We want to talk to the FBI not you 1mbiciles. You are cadres who have been corrupted by Mtaware.

    We cannot trust our institutions anymore, they are gone.

    • “An invitation to an informer to furnish further information on allegations does not in any way constitute an arrest as it is provided for under the Public Interest Disclosure (Protection of Whistle blowers) Act No. 4 of 2010″.
      But this whistle-blower is known and might be harmed- Does it mean that he will be given protection by ‘government operative’?

    • I thought he was growing thick skin for jail. Wrong perception. He is faking it.
      Let the rule of law prevail.
      Make him an example of all FIC culprits.
      CKinsultor never comments on FIC.

    • I think, for all his failings, it’s stup!dy to call the man who is brave enough to take on the establishment for you while no one else does. Having said that I understand where you are coming from. If he wasn’t fired, a process now almost forgotten about, would he be divulging all this information? We call it politics.

    • The Mast – VALDEN Findlay is implicated in the US Drug Enforcement Administration’s crackdown on a global mandrax syndicate, transcripts from the US District Court Southern District of New York have shown.
      But State House said said the Zambian law enforcement agencies would take appropriate steps to investigate the allegations in connection with drug trafficking in coordination with all appropriate authorities.
      President Edgar Lungu’s press aide Isaac Chipampe said: “State House takes very seriously any allegation related to drug trafficking. Therefore, Zambian law enforcement agencies will take appropriate steps to investigate the allegations in connection with drug trafficking in coordination with all appropriate authorities.”

    • …, convicted drug lord Vijaygiri “Vicky” Goswami linked Findlay, a well-known Zambian businessman and close friend of President Lungu, to one of the biggest mandrax syndicates in Sub-Saharan Africa.
      The transcripts stem from the cross examination of Goswami, who is currently in detention in the United States where he and the notorious Akasha brothers were extradited from Kenya by the DEA to face charges for various drug-related crimes, vehicle theft and murder, stated that Findlay was part of the syndicate.
      Goswami had once ran his narcotics trafficking operation in Zambia from the late eighties to the early nineties until he fled to South Africa around 1993 after the Zambian government gave an order to have him deported.
      During his time in Zambia, he ran his operation together with…

  3. Kambwili does not have b0lls. That is why even his wife prefers living far from him. The baf0on just rants and faints. Comes up with all sorts of illnesses when called upon to substantiate his claims. Why do these opposition politicians fail to present evidence?

    • Read 1990 news papers you find Valden Findlay with long hair in dirty articles.
      Unfortunately one article in late 1980s, name Vernon M appears together with a Findlay.
      But I believe he no longer traffick, but he is real mafia.

  4. DEC the information you are seeking is in public domain, to show that you really have teeth, you should have summone Findley who has been expressly mentioned in the FBI reports which you are privy to, or are you playing dump in fear of “DA Boss”, mind you every one both local and international are watching at how this issue unfolds since the details have already been published from source, i.e Trumps America.

    • Being implicated by some one does not mean some one is guilty. If the FBI had enough evidence that Findley is a drug dealer they would have requested that Findley be extradited to the USA. This drug dealing is alleged to have taken place in the 1980s and as such is old news to some of us. By the way the said Findley was very close to Chiluba and Mwanawasa.

  5. It is funny that commenters expect Kambwili to just appear at short notice. Remember these same people brainstormed for several days before summoning him. He also needs preparation sick or not.

    The DEC initially intended to arrest him and after they saw the backlash that would follow, they appear to soften in public.

    It can be seen that these people want to intimidate Kambwili and others because they are criticizing Lungu for his unbefitting behavior.

  6. Kambwili is so energetic when insulting the head of state but develops cold feet each time he summoned to give facts. .What a coward. He looked like he had facts at his finger tips requiring no effort to produce. Any way, it’s good business for his lawyers.

  7. Facts – Findley is Edgar’s friend. Findley is mentioned in the report in USA for a well known drug dealer. Findley not government officials has been seen in the company of Edgar embarking from that infamous jet in most of the trips.
    Facts ; One is known by the company he keeps. Fact – Kambwili has a right to question how a person in that position of a president should associate or be in company of drug dealers.
    Fact – Dec have that report why are they summoning Kambwili?
    It is not important for Kambwili to appear so that he prepares himself.

  8. He won’t be sick forever. He certainly will get better and be summoned again.Imbwili made it clear he’s not afraid of being arrested a 100 times. Just wondering if Kambwili’s allegations turn out to be true will DEC arrest the drug dealers??…………..

  9. You the same DEC you are the same people that had run away and locked up your offices for fear of HH not to bring evidence, but now why are summoning CK. Please be advised that don’t play a politics of fighting. You have scared a lot of people to Stop coming and to provide information to you about the offendas.

  10. The question is that, what happens now if CK gives you evidence and you prove it to be true, will you arrest the offendas or Not. Kindly advise. Treat people fairy don’t just be used by others just do your work accordingly.

    • Mr CK and HH are real men.Who can have guts to be locked and
      Interrogated every now and then.
      It is very easy to get back to PF and
      Enjoy all the benefits. Thumbs up.

  11. I am looking for a time when Kambwili will announce to the press of his day of briefing and on that particular day falls sick or indeed be hit by a bout of malaria and postpone his briefing.I feel for his followers.He is unreliable.

  15. Just arrest the baboon naimwe. Everyday the guy is accusing and defaming others without proof. Who is Kambwili kanshi that he can be so careless and divisive yet you keep tolerating him? Kambwili knows the crimes he committed when he was in Government so why arent you sending him to jail? Too much of the circus from the so called opposition. No substance at all!!
