Emerine Kabanshi to find out next week if she has a case to answer over Social Cash Transfer Scandal

General News Emerine Kabanshi to find out next week if she has a case...

A Lusaka Magistrates Court has set next Wednesday January 20th as date for ruling on whether or not Former Minister of Community Development Emerine Kabanshi has a case to answer on two counts of willful failure to follow procedure.

In this matter it is alleged that Ms Kabanshi Failed to follow procedure or guideline relating to procurement in engaging and amending the contract between the Ministry of Community Development and Social Services and the Zambia Postal Services corporation as the payment provider for the social cash transfer program.

According to serval witnesses who testified as sate witnesses, Ms KABANSHI ordered for the reinstatement of the contract between the Ministry and ZAMPOST even after being informed of ZAMPOST’s failure to deliver the teams of contract.

It was discovered that Other Social Cash transfer beneficiaries would not receive their allocation while those that received payment was delayed.

Other witnesses also told the court that it was discovered that ZAMPOST held on to social cash transfers funds in their fixed deposits account with a purpose of accruing interest, an action which breached the terms and conditions of the contract.

Ms Kabanshi has been appearing before Chief Resident LAMECK MWALA from May 2019.


  1. Clear evidence that the pf government is allergic to corruption. We cannot comment on this case and will leave the courts to make a fair decision. Kwashala ka hh

  2. Yes, let’s all wear the masks correctly, in a super market I entered today most tellers and shoppers had masks not covering their noses

  3. This is actually very quick by Zambian standards! Mind you, this is not the actual judgement but mere ruling on whether she has a case or not. But of course she has a case and trial will start in energy after that; likely to take another 3 years. Justice in Zambia is illusory.
    Remember The case of the thieving ministers took 5 years and this case will be concluded in 2025. We have the most useless justices in the world; always drunk and very corrupt.
    Good luck Kabanje and thieving McPherson Chanda! Hotel rooms are already booked for you at Chimbokaila! Tukabolala to enjoy!?

  4. The first task for HH will be to overhaul the judiciary with competent judges. Then fast track all corrupt cases stating with Lungu and all his minions including ape man.

  5. But Why do we tend to divert from procedure when we are in authority? These are the consequences. May the Courts of Law continue to do their work diligently. Best of luck Madam.

  6. Even Dr. Chitalu Chilufya and others involved in the Honey bee scandal must start appearing in court in order to clear their names
