Former first ladyThandiwe Banda faces arrest

THE Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has submitted in the Lusaka High Court that former First Lady Thandiwe Banda is ‘highly’ likely to face criminal charges and be prosecuted in connection with the seized apartments belonging to Mpundu Trust Limited.
The ACC told High Court Judge Dominic Sichinga that there was likelihood that investigations against Mpundu Trust would yield  a criminal case for prosecution and as such, the court should dismiss her application to cancel the restrictions on the property placed by the ACC.
The ACC said the explanation given by Ms Banda, the director of Mpundu Trust Limited after she was interviewed did not or does not successfully exculpate the Trust from the allegations.
This is in a matter in which Ms Banda of Villa Number Three, Plot 2758 off Leopards Hill Road, New Kasama wants the Lusaka High Court to order with costs, the reversal of the restriction notice to lease or dispose of the property issued by the ACC on her property.
