Dora’s lover charged, to spend weekend in jailBy Mukosha Funga on 26 Jan 2017
DORA Siliya’s lover Mark Ode Mubalama has officially been charged with four counts of giving false information to a public officer and will appear in court soon.
On Monday the immigration office arrested Mubalama and detained him at Chimbokaila where he has been for the last four days.
Yesterday, an indictment was filed in the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court and the matter was allocated to magistrate Betty Malupenga but information as to when Mubalama will appear in court is being kept under wraps.
According to the indictment, Mubalama has allegedly been lying about his father’s nationality and the school he went to for his primary education.
In counts one and two, Mubalama is alleged to have given false statements to the passport office.
“In count one, Mubalama Mark on 30th December, 2010 at National Registration Passport and Citizenship office in Lusaka in the Lusaka District of the Lusaka Province of the Republic of Zambia did make a false statement to the Passport Officer that your father is a Zambian citizen from Village Kawiko, Chief Kanongesha, District Mwinilunga knowing or believing the same to be false,” read the indictment in part.
“In count two, Mubalama Mark on 10th December 2010 at the National Registration Passport and Citizenship Office at Lusaka in the Lusaka District of the Lusaka Province of the Republic of Zambia, did make a false statement to a Passport Officer that you attended school at Kansenshi Primary and Kansenshi Secondary School from 1981 to 1987 and 1988 to 1993 respectively, knowing or believing the same to be false.”
And in counts three and four, Mubalama is alleged to have given false information to the Zambia High Commission to Windhoek staff.
“In count three, Mubalama Mark on 10th September 2012 at the Zambian High Commission to Windhoek of the Khomas Region of the Republic of Namibia did make a false statement to consular staff that your father is a Zambian citizen from Village Kawiko, Chief Kanongesha, District Mwinilunga, knowing or believing the same to be false,” read the indictment.
“In count four, Mubalama Mark on 10th September, 2012 at the Zambian High Commissioner to Windhoek of the Khomas Region of the Republic of Namibia did make a false statement to consular staff that you attended at Kansenshi Primary and Kansenshi Secondary School from 1981 to 1987 and 1988 to 1993 respectively, knowing or believing the same to be false.”
At the peak of the 2016-2017 festive period, Siliya, who is agriculture minister, travelled to the United States of America where she spent her vacation with Mubalama.
However, when pictures emerged of the couple with legendary heavyweight boxer Mike Tyson, social media went awash with condemnation as the agriculture sector was faced with the armyworms tragedy.
Siliya returned with her boyfriend a week later and immediately held a press conference where she explained that while she was on leave, her ministry remained operational as her deputy and permanent secretary were in office.
She avoided taking questions about her private life, saying the country needed to focus on solving serious problems and not focusing on her love affair.Related Items
