PRISCILLA CHIPULU, Lusaka
THE anti-money laundering investigations unit of the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) in Lusaka has arrested a 31-year-old police officer of Chililabombwe for money laundering involving K2 million.
DEC public relations officer Theresa Katongo said Mildred Muzyamba Kabwenda of plot number 63135 Mitengo area in Ndola has been arrested for obtaining goods by false pretences and money laundering.
Ms Katongo said in a statement yesterday that Kabwenda, a sergeant in the Zambia Police Service based in Chililabombwe, Copperbelt, on dates unknown but between January 1 and December 31, 2016 while working with other unknown people, allegedly obtained money amounting to K2 million from Kalumbila Minerals Limited.
She said Kabwenda purported that she had transported various goods for the mining firm using a company called Olasachi Enterprises when it was not true.
“The suspect, therefore, did engage into money laundering activities and laundered the said money by embarking on the construction of flats, acquiring various household goods and motor vehicles which have since been seized by the commission,” Ms Katongo said.
And DEC has arrested a businessman of Kabwe for being in possession of counterfeit notes amounting to more than K40,000.
“Derick Chisenga, 38, a businessman of Ngungu township in Kabwe, has been arrested for being in possession of K43,900 counterfeit notes in K100 bills. The suspect was arrested in Matero township [in Lusaka] as he was about to transact,” Ms Katongo said.
