The Zambian Intelligence News (ZIN) has unearthed a maize scam involving former Agriculture Minister Bob Sichinga and Given Lubinda who is currently serving as minister of the same minsitry. According to preliminary investigations, Sichinga who recently joined the UPND and Given Lubinda have conspired in the fraudulent sale of some maize that is stored by the Food Reserve Agency. The ZIN investigation has categorically established that Sichinga is actively engaging in the fraudulent sale of FRA maize which is being moved from FRA sheds in cohort with some senior officers at the Food Reserve Agency. So far, it has been gathered that Sichinga has engaged a number of people to serve as agents in the illegal sale of the FRA maize. Some of the people that Sichinga is using in the illegal sale of his FRA maize include a man only identified as Mwape Mwelwa who recently lost his job at Investrust Bank Zambia Limited. Other people who are serving as agents for Sichinga in this scam are Barnabas Mulenga, a former attache at the Zambian embassy in Zimbabwe and currently working for ZESCO and a man only identified as Sinyangwe who is believed to be a close relation and confidant of Robert Sichinga. ZIN can also exclusively reveal that Sichinga is ruthlessly determined to make huge amounts of money through this illegality and has on a number of occasions attempted to meet potential buyers of his corrupt FRA maize from Zimbabwe and South Africa in plush Lusaka hotels. The ZIN is actively monitoring this scame and you are advised to look out for more revelations.
