Govt discontinues money laundering case against party leader, Fube


The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), Gilbert Phiri, has discontinued proceedings against Lusaka lawyer and politician, Kelvin Bwalya Fube (KBF), and data clerk, Beauty Chama, who were facing charges of money laundering and failure to report a suspicious transaction.

KBF, the president of the Zambia Must Prosper party, and Chama had pleaded not guilty to three counts: possession of property reasonably suspected of being proceeds of crime, money laundering and failure to report a suspicious transaction, before the Lusaka Magistrate Court.

The allegations included Chama possessing seven flats valued at K6,125,000.00, engaging in transactions involving proceeds of crime and failing to submit a suspicious report to the Financial Intelligence Centre.

The matter was before Magistrate Silvia Munyinya.
