General News Faith Musonda appears before Zambia Police, her lawyers ask for more time

FAITH Musonda today availed herself to Police at Lusaka Division Police Headquarters in the company of her lawyers Makebi Zulu and Jonas Zimba.

According to the statement by Police spokesperson Esther Katongo however, Ms. Musonda’s lawyers have requested more time, hence she will appear on Thursday this week.

“In the spirit of justice, police granted their request,” she said.

Police in Lusaka recovered K65, 330, 000 suspected to have been stolen or unlawfully obtained from a house in Lusaka’s new Kasama area. Zambia Police Spokesperson Esther Katonga said the money was recovered in an operation that was conducted on 17th September 2021 after a tip-off from members of the public.

Ms Katongo stated that during the search, police discovered 30 traveling bags containing Zambian Kwacha notes.

She said that a further search which was conducted by the team discovered a safe containing 57,350 United States dollars which were later seized and handed over to the Bank of Zambia for safekeeping.

“The Bank of Zambia was engaged to count the money in the presence of caretakers as the alleged owner Faith Musonda is reported to have run away from the house,” Ms. Katongo said.

  1. The headline could have been more interesting if it read: lungu’s concubine appears before the police.
    Who can be in possession of such a hefty amount if they are not nailed by a top official.

  2. After the news of the Musonda Faith money discovery broke, fizzle may not have been better prepared to police itself. The public knowledge still cherishing the headline whilst PF is holding on peeing in the pants.

  3. This money belongs to the Zambian people. There is no profitable business in Zambia that can get you such a profit without other companies getting involved be serious guys…If this women goes free the new administration is just as useless as the last one. We have suffered enough no medication in hospitals and yet some stupid corrupt politicians are busy splashing heavy cash on their girl’s friends.

  4. Faith Musonda is one of Edgar Lungu’s Wives. If we divide that money going by Zambians with Valid NRC’s, I should have been having a 3 mill by now. It hurts me. Whoever will be found wanting should go to jail before they even say bye to their family.

  5. Actually-I’m very pissed that she is walking freely like nothing happened.
    Only in Zambia where someone can be free and walk around after running away. Why did she run away in the first place. We are not stupid. Where is the source of this income.
    Be serious Ba Dec…if you don’t solve this simple case and put some people in Jail. You are all doll…

  7. It is evident that ZP is too ill-equipped to handle such high profile white collar cases…they are still in the guilty till you’re proven innocent mindset of policing, they have nothing at moment because they can not torcher you with being thrown in their dirty cells. Faith is now brainstorming with the best lawyers and crooks in the land to make up her story. I hope ZRA is following this case closely

  9. Zambia got into the hands of the Mafia the moment we voted for MMD. ZP has lamentably failed to prosecute white collar crimes. Faith can even elect to remain silent so what will the Buju do? Electrocute her litochi to extract info? Let’s just accept that we have failed to rule ourselves. Soon UPND scandals will hit headlines. The Mbumba za UPND that defected to the PF have started to return, that’s the kind of Zambia we have. If you think Faith will end up in jail read the judgement in the Austin Liato case

  10. A friend close to Faith’s friend is reported to have said that Faith was struggling for cash about a year or two to finish building her studio. Workers went unpaid. So in the last 18 or so months she has managed to raise that much money? This is a Jesus turning water into wine moment. I’d like to know her secret.

  11. Nothing will happen to her and she’ll get all her money back…I told you it’s just change of who’s in plot 1 and traffic light change from green to red…. she’ll walk away Scott free…..UPND is just as corrupt as PF….look the 48 houses story how it has finally died….all under UPND

  12. Our Police only know how to intimidate ignorant cadres like Maxwell Chongo who don’t know how to lawyer up quickly like this girl Faith….PF was a rotten govt indeed even Joe Biden said this at that UN.

    Building a case against who…..Lungu…you will be very disappointed…All that money will be given back to Faith and eventually back to Lungu…remember HH is also a Politician….do you know that all Politicians get along behind closed doors….Charmaine Musonda is back in UPND…..and soon GBM will follow….and eventually all the PF criminals will start wearing red….and still hold on to all the stolen money…UPND WILL END UP WORSE THAN PF…mark my words

  17. “TO DECONGEST the central business district, Government has embarked on an ambitious project to create bus stations behind Levy Junction Mall and on the Kafue road.The bus station at Levy Junction Mall will service east-bound commuters who live in places like Roma, Chelstone and Avondale while the one on the Kafue road will cater for Chawama, Makeni and other places in the south direction” – Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Gary Nkombo.
    I am sure Saulosi will pour cold water on this one as well…

  18. We should have allowed her to walk until either she gave us some hard evidence for the big fish or surrender any other amounts she has had. It looks like she established a private bank of Zambia in her home. We have a feeling this money is not everything. More is been hidden.

  19. @24
    That won’t work ……we’ve tried that before it’s only that you haven’t been paying attention since it wasn’t HH in office….remember MMD tried to remove the railway line from town ….and they wanted to come up with a special route for trucks from Makeni bypassing CBD to Mandevu or 10 miles….even what UPND is trying to do is just a band aid….the only way is to get rid of all the shanty komboni in town…Kanyama, chawama,John Laing, Garden etc

  21. If.you have to be a thief in Zambia then still big you are likely never to smell the inside the cells not to talk of prison. Sembe ndifwe bama 2kwacha two weeks muselo elo no nalawyer. Uzaleka

  22. More time to tell lies ..? This is a very easy case to handle from Govt side. For one thing – am certain about is that this money was NOT declared to ZRA therefore no returns and payments were made for VAT, Income Tax and PAYE. Interpretation : Tax invasion case – subject to forfeiture or imprisonment , Principal taxes for all three taxes are due, Penalties for late return submission, Penalties for late tax payments…

    For DEC – no concrete source of wealth is straight forfeiture of all Assets owned by Suspect.
