Forged Certificate gets Diaspora Support Initiative Suspended from Participating in Public Procurement in Zambia

Share

The Zambia Public Procurement Authority has with immediate effect suspended Diaspora Support Initiative Limited from participating in public procurement in Zambia for a period of two years, for submitting a forged Compliance Certificate.

This is pursuant to Section 65 of the Public Procurement Act No. 12 of 2008 and Regulation 167 of the Public Procurement Regulations of 2011, which, mandate the Authority to suspend a supplier/s from participating in public procurement, for providing false information in a bid or any other document to a procuring entity in connection with a procurement process or contract.

The Authority is directing all procuring entities to enforce the suspension by ensuring that they do not award contracts to Diaspora Support Initiative Zambia Limited.

ZPPA also urged the Public Procurement entities not to sell or issue solicitation documents to Diaspora Support Initiative Zambia Limited or in any way invite bids from them; and not enter in any other dealings or communication with Diaspora Support Initiative Zambia Limited except in respect of existing contracts placed prior to the suspension.

In a circular dated 16th July 2020, ZPPA Director General Christopher Chichoni stated that the suspension did not affect ongoing contracts, but applied to any “success in interest,” which employed or was associated with any partner or director of Diaspora Support Initiative Zambia Limited.

  1. Is it not funny that it is diasporans who seem to think they are gods gift to earth and that they can never do no wrong? They call us thieves all day and crooks. Is it not ironic that an initiative involving diasporans is now banned for using counterfeit documents. We need to review all passports of those from diaspora because they may be fake zambian ones. We cannot trust such crooked people. I wouldn’t be surprised if some have fake documents to stay in uk and other countries

  5. KZ ni chi zende. You know that one who used to answer ati president when the teacher is going through the register. He thinks he’s being funny by insulting people who acutually care about our country. I can understand why he was used at state house. We need these characters to boost our intellectual standing in society. Why chikonco so iwe ka mudala!

  6. Only PF caders can get away with such corruption,

    To be considered for a part in any corrupt looting of Zambian tax payers money , you have to support PF

  8. If an organization is involved in less than ethical conducts it mustn’t complain or have someone cry foul citing which hunt.
    What is wrong, is wrong. No excuse. There is a difference between an expired and forged document. Morals are inborn.

  9. Fraud by diasporan organisation should not surprise us.

    They are always on this page being hypocrites…….calling legitimate govt frauds! Now look…… apparently they want to ting-a-ling tea leaf themselves!

  10. @Kaizer Zulu
    I am surprised that someone who worked with the highest officer in the land can jump to conclusions just by hearing the word DIASPORA. Mr Zulu, please do some research on where this company is and what it does before you jump into conclusions.
    If you heard ‘Victims Support Unit’ I am sure you would think that it is run by victims!

  11. Everyone knows that diasporans were running this crooked organisation. Remember I work for OP and have data on this. Don’t let me embarrass some of your parents there abroad who are implicated. Most of you here are kids who live with your fat mothers and fathers there in diaspora. Grow up imwe

  12. @Kaizar Zulu. Hahaha, ati I work for OP. Now, that is enough for me to cease arguing. people may not notice the difference! 😉

  13. For dimtwats such as KZ and the rest – Diaspora Support Initiative (DSi) Zambia Limited is run by a former Standard Chartered Bank Zambia Plc employee, Logan Nyasulu, who wanted to venture in the provision of professional services mostly to Zambians living abroad. Since he is of KZ’s flock, there is no way we disporans were going to hand over our hard earned money to him. So he had to do what the rest of you do – forge, corrupt and the rest of the dirty things you guys think are normal to do. He has nothing to do with the diaspora. I guess he thought we were dumb. We ain’t!

  14. Logan Nyasulu is a crook…he wanted to swindle me 2 years ago…..he started this nonsensical ZPP about 4 years ago….he talks too much but he delivers nothing just blah blah blah…..

  15. From the time he left Standard Chartered Bank to form Diaspora Support Initiative, the integrity levels of Logan Nyasulu plummeted down. He has an ego that wants to stay ahead of everyone else, and prove to the world that he is a successful entrepreneur, when in fact he is not. Unfortunately, he wants to hit success at any cost, even if it is fraud. Those that have followed his rantings on Facebook over the last two years will see an egoistic man who pontificates on everything as if he is the sole authority on all subject matters in the world.

    He has differed with his own church and its leaders, demeaning them and writing as if he is the inventor of the Christian faith, and everyone else is wrong and misguided. He is the crazy and irrational Seer1 of Zambia! Thanks to ZPPA for…

  17. Kaisar Joseph Goebbels Zulu must be a grade 7 failure. There’s no way this guy has even a grade 12 certificate. . He’s extremely dull. The Zambian diaspora have nothing to do with this supposedly corrupt local organization, you foooool Kaisar Zulu. You’re dumber than a box of rocks.
