DEC probes FAZ GS Kashala

THE Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) says Thursday’s raid at the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) headquarters was part of an ongoing investigation against general secretary Adrian Kashala in which was being probed for obtaining pecuniary advantage and money laundering .
DEC Public Relations Officer Theresa Katongo said Kashala was being investigated for money laundering charges but could however not confirm on whether he had been warned and cautioned.
Katongo said that as part of investigations, DEC seized a personal laptop and a central processing unit (CPU) from Kashala’s office. “As part of investigations involving Adrian Kashala, he is being investigated for obtaining pecuniary advantage and money laundering. And then of course as part of investigations we seized a laptop and a central processing unit basically to just help us with our investigations,” Katongo said.
Last week, media reports suggested that Kashala was warned and cautioned by the DEC for money laundering activities involving K30, 000 to which FAZ refuted as being innuendos meant to tarnish his image.
FAZ vice president Rix Mweemba said the association had not received any communication from the DEC and that the allegations were just mere innuendos from individuals bent on fighting Kashala. Kashala was last December reported to the Police by former FAZ executive committee member Elijah Chileshe for money laundering involving K30, 000.
On Thursday DEC officers raided Football House in which they took a personal computer and a central processing unit thereby partially paralysing operations at the institution.
