No law compels parties to disclose funders – Kabimba

By ADRIAN MWANZA 

THERE is no law that compels political parties to disclose the sources of funding, making it illegal for the police to summon former PF general secretary Davis Mwila, Economic Front president, Wynter Kabimba, has said.

Mr Kabimba in an interview said the police needed to also summon the UPND secretary general Mr Batuke Imenda to explain the assets the party had and who funded them.

He said the questioning of Mr Mwila was an indication that the investigative wings were turning the corruption fight into a circus.

Mr Kabimba said that looking at the time that had passed a number of arrests and busts could have been made but that it was evident that they did not commit any wrong doing. 

He said it was hypocritical for the UPND to start asking for the source of motor vehicles when they themselves were recipients of property during the campaigns.

“I don’t want to talk on behalf of the PF but I want to challenge the police to extend this summon to the ruling party so that they can disclose the source of the money they used to charter helicopters,” he said.

Mr Kabimba said that it was clear that the police were hell bent on embarrassing the head of State because they had no idea of what they were doing.

“This is turning into a charade which is not even making sense anymore because they can’t be summoning people on flimsy grounds,” he said.
