The Drug Enforcement Commission have summoned NDC leader Chishimba Kambwili to report at its offices today “without fail”.
“Take note that you are required to report to the Drug Enforcement Commission office situated at Head Office, Ridgeway area on Wednesday the 11th Day of September at 10:00 hours without fail,” the summon read.
Kambwili, during a briefing in Lusaka, Monday, alleged that businessman Valden Findlay is using the presidential plane to courier drugs.
This followed revelations that the American government, through it’s Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) extradited renowned African “drug lord” of Indian origin Vijaygiri Vicky Goswami, along with the Akasha brothers from Kenya in 2017, to stand drug trafficking trial in that country.
According to cross examination transcripts from the on-going court case in New York, the detained convict, who has since been turned into a State witness, named Findlay from Zambia as one of the people who was involved in the criminal syndicate.
Kambwili, at the briefing, asked President Lungu to explain his relationship with the alleged drug trafficker.
“I want to ask the President to be very honest with the people of Zambia: tell us what business you have with Valden Findlay. The Zambian people want to know what business you have with one Valden Finalay. History has it that Mr Findlay was locked up by Dr Kenneth Kaunda for dealing in drugs. We have seen [Mr President] that whenever you go abroad, when you are alighting from the plane, the next person to come out is Valden Findlay! There are allegations by the people of Zambia and world-over that, maybe, the Presidential trips and the Presidential Plane is now being used to courier drugs! This man (Findlay) has been mentioned in drug deals in America! Are we under State capture by Valden Findlay? What business do you do with Valden Findlay, your Excellency Mr President? The people of Zambia want to know!” demanded Kambwili.
