Former Zambia Air Force Commander Lt. Gen. Eric Chimese has been arrested by the Drug Enforcement Commission in Lusaka and charged on several offenses.
Mr Chimese has been arrested and jointly charged with James Chungu Director at Chita Lodge for concealing property.
DEC Spokesperson Theresa Katongo confirmed that the two have also been charged with willful giving of false information, abuse of authority of office and being in possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime.
