The Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) through its Anti-Money Laundering Investigations Unit (AMLIU) has arrested former Mungwi District Commissioner for Obtaining Money by False Pretences.
Kaniki Daniel Bwalya 65, of Plot No. F4502 Lukulu North in Kasama District, has been arrested for obtaining over K240, 000.00 from a named company as rentals for a building belonging to the Government of the Republic of Zambia.
The DC was purporting to have been the owner of the building when in fact not.
DEC Public Relations Officer Mathias Kamanga said the Commission has since seized K90, 000.00 which was in his bank account where the rentals were being deposited.
The suspect is on Police bond and will appear in court soon.
