Minister of Tourism and Arts Ronald Chitotela has announced the suspension in the movement of animals from National Parks to Private ranches.

The suspension comes a few days after controversy surrounded the movement of animals in Mfuwe where trucks were turned back by residents.

Mr Chitotela said at a media briefing that the suspension is with immediate effect.

He said it is alleged that one of the Directors at the Ministry of Tourism and Arts signed a certificate of movement of live animals from one national park to a private ranch.

Mr Chitotela said the move is against the law that only permits the Minister to sign the certificate.

He has since directed his Permanent secretary Amos Malupenga to investigate the allegations and establish whether there is any truth in it.

Mr Chitotela however said the suspension will not affect the restocking of animals in some national parks such as Sioma Ngwezi National Park where wildlife has been depleted.

  1. Chitotela, the scavenger looking for opportunities to steel everywhere and very stubborn about stopping!

    • There is simply no depth that Chitotela cannot sink to.

      I think his raison d’être is to steal.

      This is a man that can even steal a toilet brush.

      But stealing wildlife sure? Nadabwa.

  2. These kakistocratic kleptocrats must be stopped! Nothing is sacred in their eyes when there is some loot involved. Koma ivi ni vi kawalala vacendi zoona!

  3. How can a competent director in a ministry sign such an important document. These are the results of putting cadres in very important offices. PF never learns. long prison sentences and jail await PF.

  4. Awe if I were you I would have resigned on moral grounds. It can not happen twice within a short period of time. If i discovered that someone has messed up where I have been sent when I have a bad name where I came from, ukutina umusebanya, kufileka. And if you continue then you know that you are connected and people will never stop calling you names. Indoshi nindoshi neko yikaya.

  5. Why were those trucks South African registered ???

    Now Sioma Ngwezi National Park is the loophole to looting other national parks.

    Beware, pipo…….the national parks are one of the only things left for lungu and his gang to loot and sell.

  6. Suspending what is going as he believe the current plunder is a ” joke”, so he is a planning a big one which will dwarf previous animal captures and make them look like kids’ play! I have no confidence in this former infrastructure who failed to finish tarring a short distance the Pedical road due to his connaivance with the party cadre contractor!!

  7. WHAT THESE P.F BANDITS HAVE BEEN UP TO IS SICKENING TO THE STOMACH!!
    They’ve been capturing animals, Sable Antelope, Black Lechwe, Giraffe, Kudu, Eland, Buffaloes etc, telling dopey ZAMBIANS, “we are restocking other depleted game reserves in Zambia”.
    Unbeknown to Zedian’s, these Crooks were in Cahoots with private Game Parks in South Africa, would airlift these animals, avoiding radar, & once these animals were in South Africa, they would fetch TOP U.$.DOLLAR at auction.
    Meanwhile ZAMBIANS muli ndwii, ati “Sontapo, Dununa, unprecedented development” & dull I’ll educated Cadres like Dandy Crazy who make up a huge chunk of citizens are so illiterate to even conceptualise such scams existing.

      & tell me how much a single Bull Sable Antelope cost in U$Dollars.
      If you don’t already know, you will die of High Blood Pressure, once you find out, & realise, mass ignorance in Zambia is Killing & stifling the whole Nation!
      Then to add salt to injury, Jona rather than sack Kitotela, he puts him ku department responsible for Wildlife. I can assure you that Corrupt diminutive Kitotela Crook was rubbing his hands, when he got that post. But remember Jona gave a few live Buffalo to Mswati. Last time I checked, Jona NEVER owned any Game reserve, or Wildlife in Zambia.
      Does Jona know something about the scandal, considering he put his MOST TRUSTED CORRUPT MINISTER, in charge of Zambia’s wildlife? KAYA???

  9. Lungu knows exactly why he moved chitotela to be incharge of game parks……….

    this is the last remaining frontier for lungu and his gang left to loot and plunder.

    They are looting and plundering Zambias wild animals.

    After they have near depleted the looting of wild animals , their attention will shift to selling game parks.

    Just wait and see.

  10. B.S!! Chitotela definitely knew about this and probably directed the poor director to do it! Unfortunately for him and fortunately for us Zambians and those unborn he was caught pants down by Mukuni and the alert public. Our Heritage is under threat from the very shepherds who have been charged with its protection. God! How did we get here? Why did we vote Sata in?? A mess of incompetence and dishonesty everywhere.
