A MAN in Lusaka who attempted to sell a piece of land to the owner has been arrested by the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC).
DEC Deputy Public Officer Kamufisa Manchishi says Fredrick Chanda Kangwa Nkonde, 34, a businessman of House No. 247 in Bonaventure in Makeni of Lusaka has been arrested for alleged forgery, uttering false documents and obtaining goods by false pretences, contrary.
It is alleged that between 1st June, 2018 and 31st May, 2019, Nkonde advertised plots for sale in Lusaka’s Baobab area in the Daily Nation and Mast newspapers without consent from the known land owners.
The suspect further took a known Zambian to view two plots he had shown interest in buying, without knowing that one of the plots belonged to the same potential buyer.
The suspect also prepared and issued two contracts of sale and receipts under his company called Radias Corporation Limited.
However, as the suspect was in the process of obtaining a down payment of K300, 000 from the suspecting buyer, the Commission managed to apprehend him.
