How DEC officers stole and sold drugs seized from Bolivians

On February 16 and 17, 2013 government media published screaming headlines that the Anti-Corruption has arrested Hakainde Hichilema’s lawyer Keith Mweemba for corruption. See one article here  or hereAlmost two months later, the truth of Mwemba’s arrest has been known. It has nothing to do with Mwemba’s corruption but drug trafficking within DEC done by senior DEC officials.

For nine years, Keith Mweemba worked at the Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) as a prosecutor. He left DEC and went into private practice mainly defending drug related cases.

The Watchdog is informed that Mweemba left DEC in frustration after witnessing first-hand the corruption and drug trafficking in DEC.

He has successfully defended many cases and has exposed the rot in DEC. This has made Mweemba enemy number one of DEC.
