GBM camp reveales Kabimba’s corruption with oil supplier Trafigura

Registration of Kabimba’s oil company

Sympathisers of Defence Minister Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba (GBM) in the ongoing battle with  Justice minister  Wynter Kabimba/Fred M’membe   have revealed that  Kabimba’s company Midlands Energy Zambia ltd (shown above) was recently paid a huge kick-buck in the oil procurement deal by commodities trader Trafigura.

Sources in the GBM camp have  told the Watchdog that  Kabimba himself recently travelled to Lebanon to get the bribe money for making sure that Zambia awarded the  $500 million contract to Trafigura to supply Zambia with petrol and diesel for one year.

According to sources, the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) followed up the issue and are fully  aware of this corrupt transaction but cannot act because it involves a senior government official who is close to the president.

The source has since challenged  Kabimba together with his backers at The Post Newspaper to deny these allegations.

Defence Minister Mwamba on Wednesday  warned that anyone trying to bring corruption allegations against him should  be careful because he has more information on them.

This followed suspicious and rare ‘revelations’ by The Post newspaper, which is an ally of PF government that there was corruption in the PF government, particularly involving GBM.

As can be seen on this document above, some of Kabimba’s partners do not even show their nationalities .

There are four directors to the company, Wynter Kabimba, Sylvestor Mwanza both Zambians with Noor Abdi Ali and Noor Aden Issack whose nationalities are not shown on this copy of the official registration certificate  of Midlands Energy Zambia Limited.

This company was also hastily registered on 10th January, 2012, four months after PF came into power.

  2. The loosers in this instance are the voters. Politicians are politicians. They can sell you a fridge in antarcticauption. This highlights the kind of politics we have around. Politics of poverty. One year into Govt. these guys are at each others throats and also trying to raise dirty money for their own campaigns over looking the fact that they have just been singing songs of anti corruption when they where in opposition.
