Evicted: They don’t want me to expose corruption – ChishimbaBy Mirriam Chabala on 1 Feb 2017
UPP leader Saviour Chishimba says his eviction from the party secretariat was politically motivated.
In an interview today, Chishimba claimed that there were people in government who were influencing his landlord to evict him so as to frustrate his efforts to report their corrupt acts.
“This is a politically motivated move. It’s like he is talking to people in government who might be influencing him to do this to me,” Chishimba said.
However, Chishimba said he would engage his landlord this afternoon to negotiate.
“We have a meeting at the secretariat today at lunch hour with the property owner to chat the way forward of the matter, he has taken possession of the property but our belongings are still there and we are trying to reason with him,” said Chishimba.
Chishimba had announced in a statement yesterday that he had been asked to vacate his secretariat premises in Woodlands on grounds that the property was being exposed to danger.
“The United Progressive People has been served with a notice to vacate the secretariat by the end of the day today. The owner of the property (offices) which we have rented for the past six years, has increased the rentals by 50% and backdated the increase to 1 January, 2017. All attempts by management staff to reason with him on ground that there is nothing like backdating rental increments have proved unsuccessful,” stated Chishimba.
In the past few months, Chishimba has been very vocal about corruption in government and often features on various media platforms to discuss several government deals which he believes are shrouded by corruption.
The $34.5 million Zambia-Malawi maize scandal is one of the issues he has been very aggressive on and he recently reported home affairs minister Stephen Kampyongo and his sports counterpart Moses Mawere for their alleged involvement in the plunder of resources meant for a Public-Private bus empowerment scheme.Related ItemsHeadlines
