KAKUBO IN FRESH SCANDAL

…video and documents show he collected $200,000 and a luxury car from a Chinese national…

Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Stanley Kakubo is in a new scandal.

He received $200,000 and a luxury Mercedes Benz for the sale of a mine he claimed he owns in Kasempa District.

Kakubo of NRC 235416/68/1 received the money from Zhang Lianan of Lianan Mining Ltd.of Kitwe.

Kakubo also signed proof of receipt of the money.

A short video was also taken as he was collecting the money.

On Easter holidays of April 2022, Kakubo was seen leaving Sinoma Cement premises.

After the pictures emerged of him leaving with a noticeably heavy parcel, he claimed it was a calendar and diary he had collected from Sinoma. He couldn’t explain why he was collecting calendars four months after they were distributed.

  1. Mr Fastele Fastele is gone!
    Now ACC and DEC should take interest and investigate accordingly!
    Abuse if office, money Laundering and corruption in general should be ruled out!
    Half the job is done. When someone resigns like this after being summoned, it means they were shown the gravity of the offense they committed and given two options, resign or get fired!
    The option to resign is meant to save face but is also in a way, admission of guilt! So, ACC and DEC, nchito yaoneka iyo!
    No sacred Cows!

  2. Where are the dull praise singers that were defending this corrupt minister? Ati the video looks fake. Ati they are counting Kwacha not Dollars. Ati Bembas are hounding him.

    I tell you idiot praise singers not to support nonsense just because you are same tribe or belong to the same party. Put Zambia first, then you will never be biased.

    For the record, this minister has only been fired because of compelling video evidence.

    Hakainde needs to really pull up his socks. Otherwise we will think he is complicit in some of these crimes.

    • STFU you useless POS. Stupidity commenting without thinking. Get a life.
      No one needs to respond so you, who clearly has no gainful place in life, has more to endless bray about like the empty headed jackass you are.
      Let ACC do its job. Clown.

  3. Kakubo’s resignation should not let him off the hook.He should be punished and set a good example to other would be offenders .The problem is that there are no examples we can cite whereby politicians have been jailed for corruption.The law is v strong on opposition party members thats why CK was easily jaile for hate speech ,and yet peoplw are stealing resources for the Zambians with impunity.The Chinese man must also be punished because he is aiding corruption and bribery in Zambia.These are the same people who tell the world that Africa cannot develop because of corrupt leaders and yet they are the beneficiaries !!From Berlin

    • Imagine conman Hakainde has not convicted even a single person for corruption. That financial crimes court is just a tax payers money pit.

      Wake up Zambians.

  4. In the first incidence, Mr. Kakubo thought he was being smart by lying that he was collecting a calendar and diary from Sinoma Cement. He actually lied to the president!!

    Well imputi isula, taibula kusula and uwakalema takaleka. Barely one year later he hs been caught pants down and this time the evidence is overwhelming.

    The appropriate investigative agencies should move in and do their job. The Chinese gentleman must also press charges against the former Minister.

    Why is it that our leaders are such ravenous thieves? Totally shameless and morally bankrupt.
