PRESSURE is mounting for the Police and Anti-Corruption Commission to investigate the US$50,000 that Zambian Airways and its shareholders, Mutembo Nchito and Fred M’membe received from the Zamtrop account just as other beneficiaries were probed and prosecuted.
A Task Force operative has revealed that no interest has been taken in documented evidence that bank accounts were opened and operated overseas on behalf of the Task force, which have never been audited to date.
He revealed that the Task Force had created a fake company called Tedworth Properties Limited in the Isle of Man in order to receive rental income from the properties of Tedworth Properties Inc. of Panama.
He had also opened another at Citibank New York where more funds from rentals collected in Zambian sequestrated properties were deposited.
One of the sequestrated building was occupied by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees in Kabulonga.
Although the accounts had been exposed, no action had been taken because the people involved were too high for the purpose awaits criminal investigations which have not commenced despite repeated requests to the Police and other security agencies,” he said.
And Former Deputy of Transport, Works and Communication Alfred Ndhlovu has said former President Frederick Chiluba (late) was probed over the Zamtrop account because he was succeeded by people who did not understand how Government operated.
The officer demanded that “ all other people who received money from Zamtrop should be pursued in the same manner as Finance permanent secretaries Benjamin Mwene and Ms Stella Chibanda who benefited from the payments made by Acess Financial Services at the request of the Director General of the Zambia State Intelligence Service they said.
They observed that Former Chief Justice Mathew Ngulube was even made to pay a smaller amount that the US$50,000 obtained by Zambian Airways.
“The issue of the Task Force creating a fake company called Tedworth Properties Limited in the Isle of Man in order to receive rental income from the properties of Tedworth Properties Inc. of Panama and opening a bank account at Citibank New York for the purpose awaits criminal investigations which have not commenced despite repeated requests to the Police and other security agencies,” it has been revealed.
