NAPSA directors swindled, lawyers arrested

By Staff Reporter
Four directors at National Pensions Authority have been swindled of K600,000 in bogus land transactions.
And three Lusaka lawyers have been arrested in connection with the case.
In a statement Police Spokesperson Ester Katongo said the Directors were swindled of various amounts of money by a law firm, Marshal Chambers on pretext that there was land on sale.
 Katongo said two of the complainants made a down payment of K100,000 each while others paid K200,000 for each of the two plots bringing the total amount to K600,000.
She said between 16th and 23rd July, 2019, the victims received information that there was land for sale at Baobab along Kafue road and spearheaded by Marshal Chambers, a law firm headed by Germano Mutale Kaulungombe.
Katonga said investigations revealed that the land in question belonged to Nyimba Investments and had not been offered for sale hence three suspects identified as Kaulungombe, Stanley Tembo and Leonard Mapulunga Nyoni were apprehended and jointly charged and arrested on five counts of obtaining money by false pretense contrary to section 309 Chapter 87 of the Laws of Zambia.
She said that the suspects have been detained in police custody and will appear in Court soon.
 Katongo has since appealed to people that could have been swindled in respect to the said Baobab land to report to the Police.
