Nevers Mumba out on bail

Filed under: Breaking News |

Opposition MMD president Nevers Mumba Wednesday morning  appeared in court and pleaded not guilty to all the four charges slapped on him .

Dr Mumba was locked up at Woodlands Police Station in Lusaka overnight.

He was granted bail for KR 30,000 (K30 million).

Joint government investigations team public relations officer Namukolo Munyeme yesterday said Dr Mumba was arrested for willful failure to comply with applicable procedure relating to the management of public funds contrary to Section 33 (2b) of the repealed Anti Corruption Act No. 38 of 2010.

Dr Mumba was also charged with three counts of abuse of authority of office contrary to section 99 (1) of the Penal code Cap 87 of the laws of Zambia.

Munyeme said Mumba, on dates unknown but between June 1, and December 31, 2011at the High Commission in Canada being a person whose functions concerned the use of public revenue, willfully failed to comply with the laid down proceedures in receiving and disbursing of Canadian dollars 122, 229, 85, a donations to the Zambian government by a private company called Barrick Gold Corporation.

“Furthermore, Between October 1, 2009 and December 31 2010, Mumba did abuse authority of his office by awarding contracts valued at CAD$19, 850 and CAD$ 5, 248 for electrical works, carpeting and construction for a deck at the Zambian Mission in Canada to three Canadian private companies called Restcon Construction services, Argos Carpet Ltd and Stamark Construction respectively without following laid down procedure,” she said.

  1. The PF government is a very bad government in the sense that it tries to move citizens attention from focusing on the development of the country to learning how to use the rebased kwacha so called zambian wacha(ZMW). When the cobra opens his mouth nothing good comes out. Ask Silvia Masebo about what came out from the mouth of the king cobra on 11th july 2004.

I hope in 2016 some people will not be charged for having appointed commissions whose reports have not been seen and on which collosal amounts have been wasted. We wasted money on the NCC and now we are wasting more on a process that will never give us a good constitution and we shall waste more money on meaningless by elections.

    • This problem was created by Dr Mumba and his former boss. Dont blame other for the problems they inherited from MMD which they are trying to sort out to make Zambia a better place to stake. Just watch and see before you commit sucide. If they wont deliver, we will remove them from power the same way we removed MMD. However, things are happening and Zambia will be developed soon.

    • Atleast they have not abused the TV stations with Chanda Chimba the III. Power is sweet. Dont forget so easily how the MMD abused their authority. its only that the damage left by the MMD is too huge to be ignored. All the wrong doings must be exposed and be prosecuted otherwise it is not fair to arrest and jail someone who just stole a chicken worth K30 due to poverty left by the MMD and ignore the major planderers. Lets not be overtaken by these fake politicians who want to hide in the name of God when they have selfish desires to achieve. Why cant Dr Mumba go back to the pulpit and preach the gospel because he has tested how bad and good it is to be in the top government position?

  26. Dr. Mumba you are a threat to PF. They know that in 2016 with you around it will not be easy for them to go thru. They will bring up a number of charges against you and bar you from contesting in 2016. They will further pass the law that if one has been convicted before will not be eligible to aspire for the office of the president in Zambia. Remember how KK was dribbled by MMD. Mind you we are dealing with a serpent or king cobra who is in state house. We Christians need to fast and pray for our country. Let God fight this injustice in our beloved country. The Catholics (a cult church) is also not happy that you are into active politics. Most Catholics church members including bishops and priests are PF cadres.

  37. The way PF is treating Dr Mumba/ MMD as well as UPND is, by any standard, very bad especially for our democracy. We fought had to remove UNIP but even Kaunda was, many times ,far much better than Sata, Winter and Lungu. However, their time for reckoning is coming. The PF will not win the next elections. Mind you most people voted for CHANGE and not PF. All they wanted was to rid off MMD because they were disillusioned by particular individual behaviours in MMD such as Dora and Shikapwasha, and even Namugala. These are some of the few individuals who have escorted us to Satan by prescribing the end of MMD.It became a personal to holder and they stopped listening to people.This is exactly what is happeing now. Its the same way Winter, Sakeni, Silvia, Lungu , Meembe and Nchito are signing the death sentences for PF in 2016. Belive you me, PF has lost support and the youth are dissappointed. If elections are to be held today, PF would lose and H.H would carry the day. Thats why they dont want the 50+1 but HH will win with a simple majority. Zambians are not dociles but they normally wait for 5 years. Oppress them now using the Public order act (which will be used on you in a worse manner ) but in 2016, the sun will shine again when the people of Zambia will see new hopes again!
