Lungu Revokes Siame’s Appointment as FIC Chair

President Edgar Lungu has with immediate effect revoked the appointment of George Chilengwe Siame as chairperson of the Financial Intelligence Centre.

In a brief statement issued by his spokesperson Isaac Chipampe, President Lungu thanked Mr Siame and wished him well in his future endeavors.

It was only yesterday when Minister of Finance Dr Bwalya Ng’andu unveiled the new board that was to be headed by Siame to replace the one that was led by Mr John Kasanga following the expiry of their mandate in January, 2019.

“I am hereby revoking this appointment with immediate effect. I thank you and wish you God’s blessings in your future endeavours,” stated President Lungu.

    Seems he already stepped on somebody’s toes before even taking up the appointment.

    This is absolutely vague. Wht has been revoked? Is it appointment as a member of the board or appointment as chair of the board?

    We still have issues with one of the Members of the newly appointed Board and we appeal to President Lungu to consider revocation of her appointment too before we air the beans accross the world.

    One is allegedly implicated in being complacent in an alleged recruit fraud, racketeering and money laundering acts on a Former UN staff member., and abrogation of the CEDAW and other international treaties.

    The victim has since filed legal action against Zambia in international justice mechanisms, in which she named one of the newly appointed board, to assist the UN with investigations into such alleged recruitment fraud and whether or not, the latter is complacent in the current torture and pillaging of the victim.

    It is in this regard that her impartiality on the FIC Board, may be compromised by such allegations, and until the victim is fully compensated her loss and damages. How can she be on the FIC Board if she is allegedly I located in Fiancial crimes???
