Police recover K65 million cash from New Kasama House

General News Police recover K65 million cash from New Kasama House

Police in Lusaka have recovered K65, 330, 000 suspected to have been stolen or unlawfully obtained from a house in Lusaka’s new Kasama area.

The money was recovered in an operation conducted yesterday 17th September, 2021 after a tip off from members of the public.

Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo said during the search, police discovered 30 travelling bags containing Zambian Kwacha notes.

Bank of Zambia was engaged and counted the money in the presence of caretakers as the alleged owner Faith Musonda is reported to have run away from the house.

A further search was conducted and the team discovered a safe containing USD57,350 which was later seized and handed over to Bank of Zambia for safe keeping and further investigations.

A manhunt has since been launched for the suspect.

  1. The entire PF administration was full of thieves we need to question and investigate all their members. We need to hold these people accountable.

  2. Faith Musonda is one of Edgar Lungu’s wives. As youths we need a very intensified investigation as to who owns the money and how it was earned. If possible strip of immunity for Lungu and Investigate him.

  3. Do u know that 3 high court judges freed Austin Liato whn he appealed his conviction by a magistrates court for not explaining the source of money he buried at his farm? Thank goodness for Mutembo Nchito. He appealed the stupid and controversial decision by Mwinde Siavwapa, Nicola Sharpe-Phiri and Farai Muchenga to the Supreme Court. That judgement remains the standard now. Faith Musonda and her boyfriend will not be saved by silence. If they fail to explain the source of the K65 million they’re both going to jail.

  4. This is what annoys me and Stephen Kampyongo is still walking free…I hope this doesnt turn into Austin Liato where he got away with the crime lightly. In Zambia you can steal someones chicken and do 5 years but steal this much money and you will even walk away …I hope ACC dont mess up this case.

  5. How do you know it’s stolen money….African mentality…but only big Bandit HH is allowed to steal together with Musokotwane…notice how no one is mentioning 48 houses anymore…all this is a destruction because HH knows that he will be implicated together with Musokotwane

  7. This is a tip of iceberg.Imagine what they must have taken in ten years? If a junior
    Lady has so much what more the seniors
    And ministers.No wonder they did not want
    To leave as they wanted to continue this
    Lavish style when ordinary Zambians can’t
    Afford ameal.

  9. No excitement here as this is just a tip of the iceberg, there is much more than this money hidden every where. What has been discovered is too little, just imagine 10 years of looting, that is why the PF chaps tried to do all they could to remain in power. There is a lot of loot out there, unfortunately a lot of it will never ever be discovered, what with our weak investigative agencies who are even announcing investigations before they are complete and in some cases are the accomplices

  10. If a regular person like this can hold this much money. What about people with more seniority in PF. Please ACC, DEC, FIC engage interpol and track every single kwacha. Zambians need that money for economic recovery and growth. I would urge President HH to conduct a special audit of the ministry of finance and bank Zambia. Mandate all financial institutions to provide all transactions above a certain threshold.

  11. I don’t have even a K5 to buy my favourite Fanta today but here is somebody hoarding a whooping K65 million in her house! How can the world be so cruel! The perpetrator/perpetrators of this heinous crime must face the full wrath of the law if found wanting.

    No surprise there… the police are too slow. There were many videos doing the rounds on social media few weeks ago showing PF cadres with massive stacks of money scattered everywhere in bedrooms and this is when they recover the little?
    And BOZ were sleeping giving some sorry excuses why there was a shortage of bank notes in circulation, blaming fertilizer buying… really s!lly. If we had competent law enforcement agencies, they would have recovered lots of stolen property and money by now… follow the trail of money; get some search warranties and investigate banks and examine their books.

  13. Yes when you steal these amounts you can buy your freedom easily. Thats why people who steal big cash are never put behind bars that easily because they can always buy their freedom. If you steal a chicken you go in for 5 years because you are too poor to buy your freedom from anyone. To answer some questions above. All the same let these cadres explain the source of all this cash. Am sure it was meant for campaigns and this was change from the campaign cash stolen from the government buy high profile PF thugs mascarading as Ministers, PSs and the like not to forget about the Governor himself. PF the worst party Zambia has ever seen.

  14. Doesnt such a hefty sum as K65 million stashed away outside a bank affect the inflation rate and the rate of the currency? The Minister of Finance should issue a statement and so should the Police IG

  15. Normally if it’s a genuine seizer you see actual images of the crime scene and actual images of items seized…not downloading images from from the internet…UPND is shaking now because of the 48 houses story so expect alot of gymnastics trying to destruct Zambians…that seizer if fake…no facts and even Tarino Orange has cast some doubts…”who arrived at the crime scene first”….. Ladies and gentlemen brace yourselves for more drama and lies for the next 5 years…..Zambians made a very big mistake voting for HH

  17. There is no doubt whatsoever that those huge sums are proceeds of crime,,,, these villains especially from the health sector who were and still believe are stinking and filthy rich. 65billion old currency ‘immense’,,,, money that not even an aerospace engineer will take as a retirement package… Something was very wrong in the previous regime imagine a worthless councillor from a low division could afford to buy the entire bank and its assets including the 4ply toilet paper.

  19. One thing I can tell you Saulosi is that your umbilical cord connecting you to your thieving pf friends is slowly but surely being severed before your eyes. No matter how much you’ll want to yap, the President and the system are focused and have their eyes on the ball. Just watch the episodes as they are played.

  20. The veils are slowly being removed and in no time we will know all that was happening under pf. Now we can guess, and perhaps rightly so, why somebody would say K2000000 is small change, why someone would line up several vehicles at a filling station and have them filled up to the brim at his expense. I don’t think anyone, except one Saulosi who sounds like he’s just been swimming in a sewage dam somewhere, would be amused.

  21. Much as we want to find people involved in corruption or those that have amassed money unquestionably, I beg to disagree with the photo depicting the dollars found. That was Photoshopped to say the least because just the first bunch of $100 dollar bills would have amounted to $50’000. The money depicted is probably close to half a million dollars. Please, you can lie to Zambians that have not seen $50’000 cash, but you can’t lie to someone who is based in the USA and has handled that kind of money before. Learn to be truthful in your reporting.

  22. Corruption scandals…. – The police jumped the gun on this one and rushed to the scene..they should have put that property under surveillance and tapped the lady’s phones see where this leads to. We need to get FBI or Scotland Yard to come and train our officers especially in white collar crime.

  23. That lady is politically connected with the previous regime … I just connected a few pieces having seen her with a top govt official sometimes in the past..

    I tend to agree at @42 Tarino Orange. But in Zambia you can’t keep something like this under the radar with incompetent, corrupt individuals and moles embedded within the police. After duty they would tip her or her bosses. Our security surveillance systems are archaic or non existent.
    Here’s hoping she would disclose the big fish by turning into state witness.
    I agree Bally needs to request the services of Scotland and FBI to provide professional assistance to recover stolen resources. They also need to link up with International banks in Switzerland and Caribbean.
