ACC COMPLETES INVESTIGATIONS ON CORRUPTLY ACQUISITIONS OF 48 HOUSES, ARRESTS TO FOLLOW SOON

The Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has revealed that investigations which established allegations bordering on corrupt acquisition of property reasonably suspected to be proceeds of crime against known suspects of the 48, now 51 houses, had been completed.

The owners have been found and soon arrests are to be effected once the Director of Public Prosecutions gives consent.

ACC Corporate Manager Timothy Moono said “once Consent is given, the Commission will proceed to arrest the suspects”.

The owner of the houses paid K1, 060, 000 cash in crisp banknotes from the Bank of Zambia for two sets of properties on which he built the controversial 51 houses.

Moono further disclosed that the Commission had not received any letter from the alleged initial owner of the forfeited properties, Charles Loyana, a senior accountant in the Ministry of Finance demanding to be given back the said houses.

The receipts were presented to ACC.

However, when interrogated Loyana allegedly denied owning the houses, if Loyana wishes to pursue the matter, he could only do so through the Courts of Law as the forfeiture proceedings were completed.

Loyana was represented in the matter by Hobday Kabwe, now late, who was fighting the forfeiture.

  1. Then , what if you find out the owner? Nolle? how about if it is the daughter of the president. Are you going to arrest her? enough is enough ba anti corruption you have no teeth.

  2. When you have thoroughly investigated and found enough evidence to prosecute, is that not the time to effect an arrest and let the suspect appear before courts while waiting for DPP’s consent to proceed?

    There is nothing we will not see under this toothless ACC controlled by visionless leadership and headed by insecure managers.

    People have been arrested without charge, yet there are animals who are more equal who are given chance to flee since they are told that they will be arrested?

  3. Why requiring consent to effect an arrest. If a crime has been committed then no consent is required from anybody even if the culprit is a senior official. This is why we always say ACC , DEC, police etc are all compromised and work according to the whims of the appointing authority.
