ACC Nabs Chitotela On 9 Fresh Charges

The Anti-Corruption Commission has arrested housing and infrastructure development minister Ronald Chitotela on nine fresh corruption-related charges.

Chitotela was recently arrested on corruption related charges and is currently appearing in court over the same.

Before the matter could be concluded, Chitotela was today summoned and interrogated for four hours before his arrest, according to his lawyer James Matalilo.

“The Anti-Corruption Commission has arrested the Minister of Infrastructure and Housing

Honourable Ronald Chitotela, and charged him with 9 Counts of possession and concealing of property suspected to be proceeds of crime,” ACC public relations manager Timothy Moono has stated. “Honourable Ronald Chitotela, 47, has been charged with one count of Concealing property suspected of being proceeds of crime, and 8 counts of possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime contrary to Section 71 subsection (1) of the Forfeiture of Proceeds of Crime Act Number 19 of 2010. Chitotela has since been released on Bond and will appear in court soon.”

      Bring evidence to prove that my minister was arrested and that the ones who arrested him are not fake ACC officers and that they are not just jealous of the wealth my minister has worked so hard to amass in the shortest period of his ‘honesty’ service to this nation. CMZ.

    While a hungry man will be jailed 2 years for pilfering an orange, justice is very sympathetic to the rich man who plunders millions of dollars worth of national wealth.

    Sure this man

    And you still call him honourable! This man should already have been suspended from carrying out government duties. And I think these are some of the things the so called ndf should have recommended in the quest to improve our constitution so that the President should suspend a minister who has been charged and arrested for a criminal offence .Because as it is ,the President says the current law does not compel him to fire a minister who has been arrested until he is convicted. What a shame on our laws.Zambia my country oh GOD help us!
