Kapoko’s uncle and family spokesperson sent into diplomatic service

Henry Kapoko

Robert Kalimi, former Ministry of Health human resource manager Henry Kapoko’s uncle, has been sent into the diplomatic service by President Michael Sata.

Kaniki was the spokesperson for the Kapoko family when Henry was being investigated and tried for embezzling billions of donor funds.

Henry Kapoko was acquitted by a magistrate court this week.

Kapoko was one of the major funders of the PF before if formed government and most of the PF meetings were held at his lodges.

President Michael Sata a few weeks ago appointed Robert Kaniki as first Secretary at the Zambian High Commission in Kenya. It is not yet established if Kapoko’s uncle has left for East Africa to represent Zambia or he is still undergoing diplomatic training.

In June 2009, Robert Kalimi, told the nation that that his nephew has been prosecuted by the media. Kalimi, who is the spokesperson for Kapoko’s family, said it had been exactly one month and 16 days since the search at Kapoko’s house took place.

“Neither Henry nor a family member has said anything. My nephew has been prosecuted in the media. We have taken a low profile by not saying anything because we wanted the professional bodies to conduct their investigations in a professional manner,” he said.

“As a family we are demanding that let them charge Henry if there is a case, because he has never been charged. The first time they picked him, the offence was failure to account for property. He was detained without food and no charge, that was very barbaric but when he was arrested on Saturday, the offence changed to theft by public servant. If they have evidence why are they contradicting on these issues? Why are they not charging him?”

  6. Robert Kalimi is a useless chap, having such kind of people in government is very disappointing sata should not just appoint people coz they supported him but because they can work & deliver. Kalimi was just frm lecturing @ zambia catholic university in kalulushi he lived @ 13 chilengwalesa road. This idiot hit on several female students asked them 2 sleep with him on several occasions in exchange for marks. His a brag & a corrupt person. A warning 2 u kalimi should I fail my exams because I refused 2 sleep with u am taking yo ass to court. We hav evidence & already reported the matter. Its actually sad that some female students stoop so low 2 accept the offer the bustard made.

  9. sata is just allergic to been told his corrupt even when his acts and that of friends clearly shows for all those who want to see. sata is a pure tribalist , a proven strong believer of scratch my back and i will scratch yours with a position in my gov’t , but the only bad thing about this type of dealings by a president is his dividing the country and breeding hatred. sata’s lack of humanism and lack of education is costing Zambia everyday.

  10. You fellows keep it in your mind that there’s no politician ,especially in Africa who is clean in his dealings.Also remember that PF did not promise to be saints or Angels before they came into govt.If you are a patriotic zambian keep on advising Sata and his administration.Insults will not assists you in anyway.I rest my case.

  15. Sylvia Masebo is another criminal. The honest Tetamashimba told us Sylvia was deeply involved in the purchase of mandamandas hearse. Have u heard Sata talking about this issue???

    Instead Sylvia despite losing was rewarded with a Ministerial Position and her retard son Dick sent to Japan.

    Sata is a useless man who talks about corruption of his enemies NOT those close to him.

  20. Sata is really a disappointment. Many Zambians put their hope in him to redeeem Zambia. The man was desparate to get to plot 1, such thathe threw all morals to the wind. He started dining with thieves and whoever offered help, as long it advanced his selfish desire to get to plot 1. Now that he is in plot 1, the same thieves who helped him get the presidency want his heelp to get out of trouble. The man is now doing it at the expense of the common man. Ba Sata, you have disappointed us……..your concious will never be free, oppressed people, impoverished people turned up in numbers to vote for you. what do you do when you get to plot one, forsake them. Politics is indeed a dirty game.

    • Because he allowed to many wrong people to financially support him when he was in opposition, now he feels he has to please them at the expense of a common man, so so sad..

  30. president Sata has shown the nation that he believes and uses the slogan of scratching my back and i will scratch yours. when FTJ (mhsrp)was acquitted he complained bitterly and promised to take the matter to court when he is in power; is this not a similar thing he has done on Kapoko? he has lamentably failed to take any action against GBM and Kabimba coz they scratched his back. today Sata claims to have Zambians at heart, maybe muchinga province people coz this is proper propaganda at work. u can cheat many but not some of us!

    • That is what small minds do and I can’t be surprised that you Joseph Hillz or whatever you call yourself. What data are you talking about? You want to sway our minds from the real issue that the watchdog are highlighting.

      Robert the uncle to Kapoko has undeservingly been given a job in the diplomatic service as a “mwabombeni” but you can’t take that in your thick head?
      What should we do to you bembas to start putting your brains in gear?

      Don’t we have deserving Zambians who can take up those positions than continuing to expand the family forest with brainless thugs that are used to looting public funds?

      Shame on Sata and his bunch of thugs in the family forest!
