The K11,469,407 payment was made in four instalments by PF through electronic transfer from Anna Mwitwa Legal Practitioners’ account to Alliance Media’s account.

She detailed that the agreement covered services worth K11.4 million, including rental for billboard space for four months, printing, and installation of advertising materials.

Under cross-examination, Mashoko clarified that she did not report the transactions as suspicious, as she did not perceive them to be proceeds of crime.

Furthermore, she disclosed that Alliance Media also provided advertising services to the Socialist Party.

The case is being presided over by Chief Resident Magistrate Davies Chibwili.
