GOLD SCAM CASE: JUSTICE MINISTER BLANK ON WHEREABOUTS OF EGYPTIAN NATIONALS

By Darius Choonya

Justice Minister Mulambo Haimbe says he cannot confirm nor deny that some Egyptian nationals who were involved in the gold scam case are still in Zambia.

Speaking when he appeared on Diamond TV’s Costa program, Mr. Haimbe could not confirm the whereabouts of the Egyptian nationals saying he does not have information on how law enforcement agencies are handling the matter.

The Minister, however, confirmed that the state is interested in securing forfeited items such as the jet from the gold scam case.

Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) Director General Nason Banda says the Commission will maintain silence on the matter pending a conclusion by the court.

While on the show, Mr. Haimbe also disclosed that former President Edgar Lungu will not be treated like any other person after he decides to come back into active politics.

Meanwhile, Southern Africa Network Against Corruption (SANAC) Executive Director Gregory Chifire has urged former republican President Edgar Lungu to return all benefits paid to him during the period that he purported to have resigned from active politics failure to which he risks facing criminal charges.

  1. It is not true that Mulambo is blank as you put it.There is alot enshrined in his statement about the gold culprits.His being quick to express willingness and satisfaction to seize the jet and co left by the same people show you that he is knowlegeable about everything on the issue.From Berlin

  2. Is the Police under the Ministry of Justice? Are the courts or the Judicary under the Ministry of Justice?
    Here we go again. The Minister gave the appropriate answer to the question to him. He could not state where the said accused are at that moment. Given time he would be able to state exactly after consulting from his peers and people directly dealing with the manner such as the DPP and other law enforcement agencies.
    Why not ask those people directly? Instead we create a story and perspective that suggests there is something sinster going on.
    Our journalism is now being reduced to “kachepaism” as Fox news has come to be known. Spining stories….lets report facts. So that the public is informed and allowed to form an opinion. Forcing your perspective and opinions on others is wrong. That isnt your role Darius Choonya
