The Anti-Corruption Commission will soon start probing how dismissed Information Minister Chishimba Kambwili acquired so much wealth at a time he served in government. Highly placed sources at the ACC have revealed that an inquiry will soon be opened against Dr Kambwili to ascertain his source of wealth after President Edgar Lungu gave a go-ahead. According to Lusaka Times, the source said the ACC is confident that a prima facie case can be established against the Roan MP which could see him prosecuted. One of the subjects of the inquiry is the splash Kambwili Estates, a multi-million dollar villas located in Luanshya on the controversial land belonging to Luanshya Golf Club. Another set of luxury villas belonging to Dr Kambwili have been constructed near Mitengo area on the Ndola-Mufulira road. The other subject of investigations is the possible abuse of office authority in relation to Dr Kambwili’s dealings as Director of Mwamona Investments which has been receiving many contracts from both the public and private sectors without delivering the works. The source said Dr Kambwili also purchased trucks and a brand new Range Rover for his UK based wife valued at over K1, 850, 000 from Alliance Motors in Lusaka and the car remains packed is and only driven by his wife when she comes to Zambia. The ACC is also expected to probe Dr Kambwili’s purchase of high end properties in London under his children and wife. The source said State House has full details of Dr Kambwili shoddy dealings and that the former Minister was the subject of President Edgar Lungu’s recent rebuke that some Ministers are making huge daily deposits in their bank accounts. Efforts to get Dr Kambwili to comment on the development proved futile as he could not answer his mobile phone. Kambwili is a former scrap metal dealer who has only served in government for five years but exponentially expanded his financial base beyond his ordinary income.
