Ndola Mayor Swindled

Ndola police have arrested a man for obtaining money by false pretence contrary to the section 309 cap 87 of the Law of Zambia.

Ndola Mayor Davis Chiwala was swindled of K4,500 by Kennedy Sichinga of house number 61 kuomboka, Chawama in Lusaka.

This is contained in a police statement issued by Copperbelt police Chief Mary Tembo. Ms Tembo said that Sichinga on the pretext of being Agriculture and Fisheries Minister (Hon Bob Sichinga)’s son called the mayor requesting for assistance at a funeral he had in Kabushi Ndola.

Mr Chiwala gave Sichinga the K4,500 but got suspcious and reported the matter to the police when Sichinga asked for another K1,500.

Ms Tembo has since issued a stern warning against any prospective offenders, saying police will not rest until they were apprehended and brought to justice.
