RB had nothing to do with trucks, it’s Kelvin Sampa

The trucks at the centre of former president Rupiah Banda’s recent arrest were received, registered and kept by a local crook Kelvin Sampa, the watchdog has gathered.

Sampa has been working with one of former President Rupiah Banda’s nieces whose name has been withheld for now.

Sampa and the said niece of Mr Banda are in a sexual relationship.

Former President Banda was on Monday April 15, 2013 arrested for the second time by the imitation of Levy Mwanawasa’s Task Force on corruption in connection with nine light trucks.

The former President was charged for concealing the trucks valued at KR471, 000 (K471, 000, 000).

But Drug Enforcement Commission sources have revealed that the former president had nothing to do with the trucks and that he was not even aware of the existence of those trucks.

According to information gathered, Sampa received the vehicles and registered them without the knowledge of the MMD campaign team.

In 2011, the police almost arrested Kelvin Sampa and the same niece of the former president but Sampa agreed to implicate the former president in exchange for freedom.

Kelvin Sampa now works as informer for the Task Force which they prefer to call Government Joint Investigations team (GJIT)

The former president’s niece has now been offered a job in the diplomatic service as part of the deal for her and her lover to implicate her uncle.

On April 6, 2011, Kelvin Sampa was disqualified from contesting the position of MMD national youth chairperson and was suspended from the party for using the MMD’s name to raise money fraudulently.

Sampa has history of conning the Chinese and others. He was once posing as consultant for China Communication Services.

He once worked with Ventriglia family when they were controlling Zambezi Portlands. He betrayed them after they landed into difficulties.

He ditched the MMD and climbed onto the PF just after the MMD lost power.

    Every sane mind would ask on how light trucks which were given to the govt ended up in kelvin sampa’s custody. since its a known fact that kelvin sampa has all along being dating Kanitundila’s niece,the uncle must have played a bigger role for the two to acquire the vehicles

    ZWD your reporting is false.Do you want to protect your paymaster RB?
    RB received the vehicles and concealed the ownership into various fronts.
    Let him tell the nation through the courts how he got them vehicles.

  12. Thepascal  April 16, 2013 at 18:39

    Is the watchdog saying that MMD and RB did not commit any corruption or maybe there is no corruption in Zambia.It looks like you are going out of your way to defend RB.You are doing more than his Lawyers.Maybe we should just forget about corruption in Zambian and just pretend that everything is alright.Face it 95% of Zambians are corrupt.The police are corrupt,the DEA is corrupt school officials are corrupt everybody is corrupt.You need to bride somebody to get things that are your birth rights for example NRCs.UNIP was corrupt,MMD was corrupt and PF is corrupt;the next party will be corrupt.The sorry fact about this is that all this money could generate more money but we steal it and spend it on amaule and beer in dirt bars with dirty toilet.An AIDS comes around to mop the dirt.

    nothing wil prevent Rupiah from going to jail,not even media justification wil do.he used to jump like a demon possessed man wen he was stealing.

  14. EZRON  April 16, 2013 at 17:51

    Kanitundira is the one who bought the trucks using tax payers money.

      @Ezron
      Have you started fabricating what are already fabricated stories? We already know that the trucks in question were donated by the Chinese company that built the Levy Stadium in Ndola. The next question is: was the donation to the Zambian Govt or the MMD as a party? From the look of things and based on the trumped up charges, the trucks were donated to the Party or Given to RB himself. In either case, I see a nolle prose qui from the DPP.

    Verecy Banda loves money! Shame on you twat!

  16. zedforward  April 16, 2013 at 16:47

    Hey, looks like things are gettin pretty hot in zed. Mtembo nchito has alot of work to do given that Zambia has no specific law on campaign money and materials. No matter how much they try to FISH for a watertight case, it will always be a fishing expedition. So many people, businesses and organisations donated money for campaigns in respect of PF, UPND AND MMD. Charge of concealment is more less like abuse of office but because they dont have information and CREDIBLE WITNESSES, they will gropple for anything to hold on to. BESIDES, why dont we also arrest MWANAWASA coz the construction of the stadium started in his time.

    Kelvin Sampa is a little political prostitute who was at once one of the youthful UNIP die hards during the failed 1991 campaign. He ditched UNIP to join MMD and again ditched MMD to join PF. He is a disgrace to his family and his honorable brother Davies Sampa former PS Cabinet Office. He is a real scumbag!

  18. Evans Mbulo  April 16, 2013 at 16:02

    Sampa is a kama shameless little political prostitute, who was in the forefront of the UNIP losing 1991 campaign before he ditched it to join MMD which he again ditched to join PF. He is a disgrace to his family and his honorable brother Davies Sampa former PS Cabinet Office. He is a real scumbag!

    It is like watching Kasaka and Mwinimushi court session! Who will stop the rot so that we forge foward? This is diverting attention from developmental issues. PF my action Party please careful. It is the same trap KK, Fred + Levy went down with. Don’t say u were not warned!

  20. hoover  April 16, 2013 at 15:57

    KELVIN, KELVI,KELVIN, THIS GUY IS A FOOL, HE WENT TO GET MONEY AND TRUCK IN THE NAME OF MMD OR RB. ITS A KNOWN FACT THAT KELVIN SAMPA WAS IN A SCAM TO DO WITH FAKE BID BONDS AT MIN OF EDUCATION. HE ISN’T A WITNESS OF GOOD STANDING TO THE PUBLIC. WHILE WORKING WITH NAMULAMBE AND SOME UNKNOWN DID STEAL FM GOVT OF ZAMBIA 3 MINES .

  21. dumbo  April 16, 2013 at 15:50
