POLICE, ACC IGNORANT OVER 31 VEHICLES

By GIDEON NYENDWA

POLICE say they are not aware of the investigation being conducted on the 31 vehicles that were alleged to have been abandoned at a private property in Makeni.

Police spokesperson Rae Hamoonga said that he was not in a position to give any updates on the investigations on the vehicles because he was not aware of this particular investigation.

When contacted earlier about the same issue,   the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC)   spokesperson, Ms Queen Chibwe referred all queries to the police spokesperson because the investigation was being carried out by the joint investigative wings and the queries must be directed to Mr Hamoonga.

But Mr Hamoonga said there were no such investigations and referred the query back to the ACC because they were the ones who were quoted in the newspaper story involving the abandoned vehicles.

Mr Hamoonga also said that he does not think that the vehicles really existed because he had information that the newspaper that published that particular story actually misquoted the ACC spokesperson.

“I heard that they misquoted Queen Chibwe and those vehicles don’t even exist or something,” he said.

On March 22, 2022 it was reported in one of the daily tabloids that the Joint Investigative Team had seized 31 vehicles which were found abandoned at a private property in Makeni, whose owner is yet to be established.

Investigations were indicating that the vehicles belong to a high profile person who has close ties with the former president, Mr Edgar Lungu.
