GOVERNMENT should set up an investigation team to examine discrepancies between the original allegation that President Frederick Chiluba (late) stole US$300 million as no such money was found overseas or in Zambia, a concerned citizen has said.
When Mark Chona was Taskforce on Corruption chairperson , he told the BBC that Dr Chiluba had stolen $3oo stashed in foreign accounts which he used to buy properties overseas.
Mr Felix Mwenya said the team should find out who made those wild allegations and why they were made when Dr Chiluba did not commit such offences.
He said Dr Chiluba would have died in vain if those who prosecuted him were not brought to book for the financial crimes they instead committed.
Speaking ahead of the 4th memorial commemoration which falls today, Mr Mwenya said in view of crimes being exposed by those who hounded Dr Chiluba, Government should consider instituting an investigating into the operations of the Task Force on Corruption.
And MMD national youth secretary Bowman Lusambo said the late President would be disappointed to see what was currently happening in the former ruling party if he were to come back.
The youth leader said Zambians must begin to reflect on the original principle of democracy as fought for by Dr Chiluba’s team in order to unite the people and build the country together. He said people must find time to reflect on the path the country’s democracy was taking whether it was helping to build or destroy the nation.
“If President Chiluba came back today, he would not be happy to see what is happening in the party he helped to found. “And it also goes with the accomplishment of our democracy in line with building a free society where people should be enjoying freedom of expression, living by the One Zambia; One Nation motto,” he said.
